Fresh Off the Press

It’s been a couple weeks and I think it’s time to bring something back for a review. If you haven’t seen Fresh of the Boat on ABC, then you are missing out… or are you? The idea of such a show was way out there. In fact, from the face-to-face interview conducted by Huffington Post reveals this Asian-American show is the “first show of its kind in the last 20 years.” Is that a good thing? According to the reviews, it’s been mixed but mostly positive. IMDb gives the show an 8.3 and Metacritic a 75%. So maybe a definite plan to watch show. One of the criticisms that was circulating was the fear that the show might be good but might also be white-washed. Indeed, the show is broadcasted on ABC, and looks to cater everyone, whites and Asians and everyone else but that is a hard task.

 

“This is a show from the Asian American point of view,” says Melvin Mar. That is a bold move. And after watching it myself, I felt quite nostalgic. Its spot on for the most part and not always something you want to recall. But if you would like to relive your childhood or want to get a pretty accurate picture of how we grew up, watch this show. It’s funny, it’s bold, and it’s something different.
