Storyline

Kim's Convenience tells the funny and heartfelt story of the Kim family. Mr. and Mrs. Kim are Korean Canadian convenience store owners who have worked hard to give their now-twenty-something children, Janet and Jung, a better life in Canada. This single camera comedy finds laughter in the trials of running a literal 'Mom and Pop' shop while raising kids in a culture not quite your own.

It's actually funny
13 October 2016 | by JDx_82See all my reviews

As part Asian and a big fan of TV shows this of course is a show for me. These days it seems very hard to make a comedy that's actually funny, but believe me, there were some laughs that you could here if you listen good.

For me this means everything for a comedy show, because in shows like The Big Bang or Silicon Valley the jokes are just not that funny. You hear the laughing tape and you think... this was a joke?

I am also a big fan of Fresh off the Boat and after two episodes this comes close, not really close, but close, because that is really one of my favorite comedy shows right now.

So I gave it a 9, maybe I would say a 8, but for a comedy that is actually funny these days I believe they deserve a 9. By the way, anyone else thinks Janet looks like a Korean Yvonne Strahovski?
