Tv Season Info

The first season of this sitcom follows the Huang family as they deal with culture shock during their transition from life in Chinatown in Washington, D.C, to operating a steak restaurant in Orlando during the mid-90s. The show's protagonist and oldest of the siblings, Eddie (Hudson Yang), struggles to acclimate to his new school and fit in with peers, while his brothers Emery (Forrest Wheeler) and Evan (Ian Chen) have no trouble adapting at all. Their mother, Jessica (Constance Wu), is a strong-willed, traditionally-minded woman who relentlessly pressures her children to excel academically while remaining in touch with their Taiwanese heritage. Louis (Randall Park), the father of the family, is a kind yet naïve man who wholly embraces the concept of the American Dream and is determined to have his new steakhouse, Cattleman's Ranch, succeed at all costs. During this season, Eddie constantly tries to impress the kids at school; Jessica's side of the family is introduced when they pay a visit to the Huangs; and numerous pop-culture phenomenons prevalent during the 90s are referenced.

Audience Reviews for Fresh Off the Boat: Season 1

  • Jul 02, 2021
    Not funny. The writing is weak and vapid. The acting is lackluster. Not worth a detailed review.
  • Oct 18, 2020
    Funny, light, and enjoyable.

    As an Asian-American, I appreciate the representation on TV. Randall Park and Constance Wu are legit stars. Having said that, the writing, characters, and humor didn't resonate with me and I found myself bailing after a few episodes. The show didn't feel particularly authentic...more like a formulaic ABC family sitcom.

    It is a great series. It's about the stereotype of an asian families. Great Concept.
  • Feb 22, 2019
    This show is my new favorite! Constance Wu is amazing, but honestly the entire cast is outstanding as well. The throwback to the 90's in Florida is spot on, the stories are great and I can say, I've never laughed this much out loud at a sitcom in my entire life!! Love love LOVE THIS SHOW!!

    Best Episode wanting to join a Country Club. Funny part Asian Family owns BBQ Restaurant.
  • Apr 15, 2018
    It’s a terrible show. It’s painful how they portray Asian stereotypes in an effort to be funny, but still get it wrong. It misrepresents much of the Asian immigrant experience, and worse, sends the message to white, black, and brown people that some of these things are “funny” to us. It’s not.
  • Apr 02, 2018
    Randall Park and Constance Wu are awesome!
  • Feb 22, 2017
    Every Chinese-American or Chinese-Filipino family should follow this show. It's funny look into the lives of Chinese immigrants and how they try to blend in with western society in the 90s.

    Fresca, divertida e inteligente
