This looks so horrible.. The wife's accent is enough to make me never want to watch it. And the way Eddie talks like Vanilla Ice has always bothered me.

Have to admit, the market scene was pretty funny though, but that's about it

gave it a go last night
pretty bad...acting, racial jokes and accents were all too forced
some parts were relateable though being an asian immigrant in the 90's
this show wont make it past half a season before being canned.

It's so off-putting having an extremely effeminate man portraying an alpha male... The mom is too pretty/young looking and her fake accent is horrible.

The casting in this is just so wrong, with the exception of young Eddie. He's great

I may keep watching it just to have a short show to watch occasionally, and for the mid 90's nostalgia

Randall Park, the dad, actually had issues being Korean playing a Taiwanese dude. The show even hired an accent coach for the chick and himself. I think they weren't really true to Eddie's book, so it got super fucked.

Few laughs but overall don't see this show lasting. I've said that before and been wrong though.. many sitcoms take a handful of episodes to get in the groove.

Music is good though!

Yeah, the recent interview with Eddie Huang and Randall Park on Joe Rogan's podcast was pretty insightful for the show. It's not like they were just in it for the pay day, there was genuine consideration and concern for portraying and representing the Asian community properly on network television.

I am happy to see it's been getting relatively good response overall (75% metacritic), and not so much white-washed cries of racism.
