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.

Watched one episode, didn't laugh at all, this is ABC for ya, they think they have comedies, guess the jokes on them. Horrible show.

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

I have a few Asian friends. I don't see them acting this way.

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.

My family and I LOVE this show. Giving consideration to the fact that it takes place in 1995 and is based on the true story of Eddie Huang, I give kudos to ABC for NOT being politically correct and letting it play out according to the time period it represents. I love the actors (especially the mother) and we think it is hilarious -- right up there with The Middle about average middle-class hard-working people. I hope ABC has enough brains to keep this around long enough to find its audience. We'll keep watching for sure!
