Will ABC Comedy “Fresh Off the Boat” Make the Cut?


“Fresh Off the Boat” is a popular show that recently came out on ABC about an Asian-American family based on the  memoir of celebrity chef Eddie Huang.  Eddie Huang was born in America to Taiwanese parents and moves from Washington D.C. to Orlando, Florida so his father can open a restaurant during the 1990s.

Since America does not give Asians and Asian-Americans an opportunity to showcase their talent, I think this show might give audiences a better insight of everyday life in their culture.

Historically, the first Asian-American show to premiere on TV was called “All-American Girl” starring comedian Margaret Cho twenty years ago, but it got cancelled after one season.  Hopefully, it will provide greater diversity among Asian and Asian-Americans in Hollywood.  Exposing different cultures to the audience should be a priority because everyone is unique in their own way.

People should keep in mind and not jump to conclusions with giving it a chance.  Do you think “Fresh Off the Boat” will be a hit with the audience?  Only time will tell.

      I have not seen the first episode. However, I saw Tuesday’s episode and thought it was very funny. In my opinion, I think that it will become a success allowing the Asian community to see someone that looks like them on TV. Once it becomes successful, it will open more doors for Asian and Asian-American actors/actresses to work in Hollywood.
