Review of Fresh Off The Boat

Fridays, 8:30 PM ET on ABC

30 minutes

It’s the 90s and 11 year old, hip-hop loving Eddie (Hudson Yang) just moved to suburban Orlando from DC’s Chinatown with his parents (Randall Park and Constance Wu). It’s culture shock for his immigrant family in this comedy about pursuing the American Dream. “Fresh Off the Boat” is based on Chef Eddie Huang’s memoir Fresh Off the Boat.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

I don't know what all the hype is about. I am an Asian-American and though I do relate to a lot of things on the show, I didn't find it that funny. I would've been super interested if I saw something like this in the 00's maybe, but right now I just find the way they directed this to be too dated, which I guess is what they were going for since it's set in the 90's. I tried to give it a because of my Asian pride, but I just couldn't stay interested enough to continue.
