Storyline

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 Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Pretty darn funny!
3 March 2017 | by OllieSuave-007See all my reviews

This was a hilarious sit-come starring Margaret Cho as Margaret Kim, who lives with her traditional Korean family.

Full of culture clashes and Asian stereotypes, Cho was absolutely hilarious in portraying her character dealing with her family life and trying to make decisions of her own. I could relate to her mother trying to shelter her, urging her marry a nice spouse and comparing her with other Asians. Amy Hill plays Margaret's grandmother, and was absolutely hilarious in her Asian-English accent!

Very witty with dry humor and laugh-out-loud moments. Too bad the show only lasted one season, and the later episodes of the season were a let-down, as the cast changes really brought down the show.

Grade B-
