Fresh Off the Boat is a comedy series, that is inspired by the life of chef and food personality Eddie Huang and his book. It’s the ';;;;90s and 12 year old, hip-hop loving Eddie just moved to suburban Orlando from DCs Chinatown with his parents. The family encounters one hilarious experience of culture shock after another in this new comedy series about pursuing the American Dream.
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.
