LWL is lighthearted, and funny
11 June 2005 | by (california) – See all my reviews

Not being Asian, it wasn't until my wife started watching Living With Lydia on AZN cable that I realized just how biased television is in the US. This is actually pretty funny, although in a 70's or 80's sitcom format. That's not bad, and can be refreshing to watch a show, get a laugh, and not think about it too much.

What I really enjoy about LWL is that it depicts a modern family in Singaore that any American family can relate to, and it's all English. Consider the amazing fact that despite representing a very large portion of the US population, there has NEVER been a single US television show (comedy or drama) starring an Asian cast. Only one Hispanic show (ever). As much as I complain about Black stereotypes on TV, it wasn't until LWL that I actually realized how much an Asian presence is TOTALLY missing in the stuff pumped out of Hollywood. That is a disgrace. Too bad Lydia wasn't on US broadcast networks. I think it would actually do well for a mass audience.
