Review of Dr. Ken

30 minutes

Doctor-turned-actor/comedian Ken Jeong (“Community,” “The Hangover”), plays Dr. Ken, a brilliant physician with no bedside manner. He is always trying to be a good doctor as well as a good husband and dad to his two kids. However, these good intentions have a way of driving everyone crazy at work and at home. Luckily, his therapist wife, Allison, is just the right partner to keep things sane.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

This show reminds me of Pucks, there was a great premise but something horrible happened in the making of it. It is nowhere as poignant as Fresh off the Boat and just uncomfortable to watch. This show just feels like a white family played by asian actors, layered with how white people see their asian friends rather than a show written from the perspective of asian families. Master of None is really great example of this, it talks about american life from the perspective of ethnic minorities very well. All in all, this is basically a regular single family sitcom played by asian actors. Make better choices Hollywood and stop remaking shows you've made and cancelled a million times. It's exhausting and just feels like your talking down to the viewers.
