Eddie - Hudson YangLouis - Randall ParkJessica - Constance WuEvan - Ian ChenEmery - Forrest Wheeler

A comedy loosely based on the life of chef Eddie Huang and his memoir by the same name.


Inspired by a true story, this comedy takes places in 1995 when 11-year-old Eddie Huang has arrived in the suburbs of Orlando after moving there with his family from D.C. Quickly they find out that things there are quite different than they are used to - for starters there is no Chinatown like there is in Washington.

Eddie's dad is chasing the American dream and opens a western food restaurant, while his mother struggles with the differences in culture between her old life and her new one.

I LOVE THIS SHOW!! It mirrors very accurately my growing up as part Chinese in indulgent N. America. My mother could out-do Constance Wu's passive-aggression.
Chinese families pride themselves on teaching their kids to be self-restrained, AND THIS SHOW EXPRESSES THAT VERY WELL WITH GENTLE HUMOUR: sometimes the boys get it; sometimes you sense their seething need to rebel and express that in other ways, which are never violent because violence goes against the ever-constant Chinese need for disciplined thinking and self examination even at an early age.
This restraint extends to never allowing summer vacation time for most Chinese kids, who spend it in summer educational tutorials. Smart alec remarks and "clever" behaviour from the boys are hardly on this show because they are hardly present in real Chinese families.THIS SHOW'S FUNNY SIDE is seeing the gentle humour on how these kids handle being self-restrained.....shaped by 7000 years of cultivated restraint, LOL.
I HOPE THE SHOW HAS MANY SEASONS. BRAVO!!

LOVE this show!! And I'm Asian. All White people dont act like the "o'Neal's" and black people don't act "Blackish".
This is TV. As long as your laughing, it's funny. If your not laughing than this shows not for you.

In my house we call this show "Fresh Off the Butt" because that's what it sounds like they're saying in the theme music :P

Eddie Huang said that the pilot was a good representation of his life, but since then it bears no resemblance to his vision. Apparently Hollywood can't tell a true story without screwing it up.
