News & Interviews for Fresh Off the Boat: Season 1
The show ... is sweet enough and features a likable cast. The assimilation material is a bit obvious in the two episodes provided for review, but that's typical in new comedies trying to establish their stomping grounds.
Fresh Off the Boat paddles hard in its efforts to be an amusing comedy with heart.
It packs a bigger wallop than the average half-hour purporting to be inclusive or to showcase "diversity."
Watered-down or not, the immigrant/culture clash storylines are the freshest things about "Fresh Off the Boat."
Audience Reviews for Fresh Off the Boat: Season 1
Seeing Fresh Off the Boat is like watching my own family. It was a brilliant sitcom which relied on good humour (which is rare these days), though I got very annoyed at the main character. Constance Wu should be praised for her performance.
