Trivia

ABC executives formed a focus group during season 1 to watch an episode and give feedback. The group rated scenes featuring Louis and Jessica higher than scenes featuring Eddie, the main protagonist at the time and the feedback given was to have more scenes with Louis and Jessica. The show was retooled to give them more screen time starting in season 2. See more »

A good look at life and culture in the 90's from an Asian family!
5 March 2015 | by blanbrnSee all my reviews

Living in today's world we see more and more Asian people all in our communities I like living around them too, they are intelligent attractive and mostly friendly. This new ABC series set in 1990's Orlando about a Taiwanses family who moved from Washington D.C. to start a new life is a big winner! It centers around the young man and oldest child in the family named Eddie Huang(Hudson Yang)who is learning more and more American culture in the 90's from the style, music, TV, movies and one liners as this series captures the 90's culture well with it's slang and one liners! A real sugar and spice treat is the performance of the mom Jessica(Constance Wu)she's a sexy and sassy outspoken loving matriarch who guides the ship for the whole Huang clan as her husband(Randall Park)runs his steakhouse. Overall great show that learns us about Asian culture all the while being funny, educated and capturing 90's culture without taking things to serious! A thumbs up winner.
