Fresh off the boat
4 February 2015 | by mac139See all my reviews

I found this promising show to be a bit of a let down. Lots of kudos for the step forward for Asian programming but the opportunity for a great premise was lost. Aside from a couple cute kids,the cast is ultimately quite unlike able . The father is stilted and struggling,the mother downright mean spirited,without any of the charm or humour of past TV's mean moms. Actual humour is very hard to find. But the most unappealing part of the exercise is the fact that seemingly every line spoken was about race. I am sure the writers wish to make their point in this regard,but too much of anything is,well,just too much....maybe to the point if wallowing in a very deep pool of its own stereotypes. Too bad...it could have been a great,fresh look at this community,so obviously missing from prime time.However,we suspect that this little show will drop off the charts fairly quickly,leaving that void intact.
