Critic Reviews for Fresh Off the Boat: Season 2

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (6)

Gave Constance Wu a showcase for her slapstick talents and a chance to exercise her signature glint and glower.

But it looks like the series will continue to deliver consistent chuckles and cleverly subvert stereotypes of Asian American experience-even if they come wrapped in a fairly standard family-sitcom package.

September 22, 2015 | Full Review…

The show can be exceptional in its smallest moments, particularly regarding its smallest cast members (and its oldest, with Soong), as well as its great use of throwaway comments and referential cutaways.

September 14, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The crucial difference between Fresh Off The Boat and other sitcoms is that even when Fresh Off The Boat indulges in typical sitcom tropes, they very often emerge from more unexpected sources.

September 13, 2018 | Full Review…

Fresh Off the Boat is as capable as any other show of pointed critique, as this season's treatise on the perils of diminished representation demonstrated.

May 27, 2016 | Full Review…

It's been a really strong start to the season, with the negotiation sequence at the end of last week's "Shaquille O'Neal Motors" a particular delight.

Audience Reviews for Fresh Off the Boat: Season 2


Season 2 lost a bit of the steam from season 1, the writers were a bit exhausted I believe, but there was enough wits to satisfy fans.
