Storyline

"Yappie" is a single-camera comedy that explores the social and racial issues related to the contemporary Asian American experience from the perspective of Andrew and his friends who are all "yappies". Andrew is a 29 year old Chinese American who, for most of his life, has never questioned his place or his purpose, unintentionally becoming a "model minority". But for the first time, due to some new influences and experiences, Andrew is discovering the effects of his invisibility on the canvas of diversity and is finally realizing he wants to do something about it. Written by Wong Fu Productions

excruciatingly oblivious to its own self-referential "always play it safe"
7 August 2018 | by sir_humpslotSee all my reviews

WongFu has always played it safe and this is no exception. I only started watching it because others were hyping it on the internet.

It's the same old formula and there's no reason to change anything because they know their audience of teenyboppers. The "relationships" are paper thin soap opera tropes and about as melodramatic as some random girl/guy cry at some stupid misunderstanding but then will course correct and all is well.

For all its recognition of playing it safe for Phil's character, it sure isn't aware of its own irony of playing the same thing as all other WongFu projects.
