Thoughts on “Fresh Off the Boat”

Friends have been asking me. It’s been out for a while. I finally had time to watch a few episodes. So it’s time to weigh in on Fresh Off the Boat.

I forgot to mention in the vlog that I have terrible taste in sitcoms. I absolutely hated Friends and Seinfeld when they were on with a probably undeserved vitriol that surprises even me sometimes. They are like the two definitive sitcoms of my generation and I absolutely abhor them. There is no Friends or Seinfeld in this dojo!

I also can’t stand Big Bang Theory. I’ve heard some call it “Nerd Blackface” and I think that’s a little too far. I just don’t understand why physics theories are funny. The laugh track doesn’t make sense to me. A theory or a proof isn’t a punchline.

So definitely take all of my opinions on what’s funny with many grains of salt.

Fresh Off the Boat airs Tuesday nights at 8pm on ABC. There’s some weird verification thing on the ABC site to view episodes so just head over to Hulu to check it out. The hell? Don’t you want people to watch things on your main site?
