Fresh off the Boat


A witty comedy based on Eddie Huang’s memoir of the same name, Fresh off the Boat recounts Eddie’s childhood starting from his family’s move from Washington D.C.’s Chinatown to suburban Orlando. His father decided to open a Western-style restaurant, and the whole family needs to adjust to the new environment and the lack of minorities in the community. It shows a snippet of what it means to be the children of Taiwanese immigrants during the 1980s. In season 4, Nicole, the Huangs’ next door neighbor and Eddie’s crush, came out as a lesbian. Fresh off the Boat is humorous and witty. More importantly, it starts an important conversation about the struggles of Chinese-American.
