Based around the stand-up routines of comedian Margaret Cho, this series looked at the culture clashes that occured between a traditional Korean mother and her fully Americanized daughter. Mom just wants Margaret to marry 'respectable' men: doctors, lawyers, scientists (always Korean), while her daughter is more interested in white bikers, musicians, and any other type that her mother is bound to hate. Through all of this, Dad knows better than to interfere, and just keeps out of the fray. Written by

All American Girl in the beginning was a pleasure to watch. I liked Margret's comedy of her family life, but mainly, being an Asian-American guy, I could relate to most of the things going on, as I used to hear he same things from my Grandmother when I was a kid. For example, "Marry a nice Japanese girl"
When I was growing up, I had to deal with being different compared to most other Asians my age, as I didn't like the same type of sports they played to dating girls outside my race. After watching this, In some ways, I didn't feel alone being the way I am and I could see some similarities in Margret and myself.
The problem I had with the show was when they made changes in the show, when got rid of virtually the entire original cast and replaced them with another group. When I watched the show, I found it unfunny. I felt couldn't identify with the show any longer and I stopped watching it, which is too bad because in my opinion, this show had a great start.
