Fresh Off the Boat


Fresh Off the Boat…. a never-before-seen family sitcom with an all Asian-American cast. First aired on ABC on February 4, 2015. The idea of the all Asian-American cast resists against the “all American household” and what it means to be proud nationalists. Most TV shows, especially popular ones, consist of mainly white people in the full cast with maybe one or two minority people. The show is about a Taiwanese-American immigrant family attempting to get acclimated to the new setting and surroundings. This is important because Asian American people are acknowledged and broadcasted for being important and relevant people of the mainstream media, which is usually rare. It explains the ideas we’ve discussed in class about transnationalism and globalization, as well as breaking the stereotypes and barriers of race and identity.
