Fresh Off the Boat 3×14 ‘The Gloves Are Off’: Mount Brushmore

One of the first people to ever make me love television was Heather Locklear. I was obsessed with her on Melrose Place, and to see her tonight on Fresh Off the Boat made my heart smile. Playing a heartless ex-wife who actually grew to have compassion, she is a guest star we need more of. […]

Fresh Off the Boat 3×13 ‘Neighbors with Attitude’: First kiss

Did someone at ABC sense this season needed more focus on the kids, because this week’s Fresh Off the Boat was actually laugh out loud funny and in all honesty it has everything to do with Eddie’s friends. Even Evan’s small story line with the money owed to him was funnier than a lot of […]

Fresh Off the Boat 3×13 ‘Sisters Without Subtext’: Pistachio belt

While Fresh Off the Boat continues to be a funny show, I am finding it hard to really care about it the same way I do when it comes to shows like Modern Family and The Goldbergs. There the whole family is in the spotlight, but with this show it seems like they are pushing […]

fresh-off-the-boat-clean-slate

Fresh Off the Boat 3×11 ‘Clean Slate’: A Randy

Chinese New Year is upon us again on Fresh Off the Boat and this means getting through it free of bad karma, grudges or any other negativity. This makes Jessica nervous as hell since she’s the only one in the family who has a patience as long as a fly’s lifespan. She’s not the only […]

fresh-off-the-boat-the-best-of-orlando

Fresh Off the Boat 4×10 ‘The Best of Orlando’: Trending jeans

How many of us have imagined winning a big award, and our thank you speeches? I do this every other day in the shower, but it was a reality for Louis on Fresh Off the Boat. It’s a lot of pressure not to forget anyone, and of course he goes and forgets the one person […]

fresh-off-the-boat-how-to-be-an-american

Fresh Off the Boat 3×09 ‘How to Be An American’: Modern romantic

At first this seemed like a rerun since I’m pretty sure we’ve all heard that octopus story from Louis, but behold – Fresh Off the Boat found a new way to present it as we learned the real story behind how he and Jessica came to be as she awaited her citizenship. While their parents […]

Fresh Off the Boat 3×08 ‘Where are the Giggles?’: Freaking Elmo

It’s Christmas time on Fresh Off the Boat (and every other show right now) and with that comes a lesson about the holidays. Eddie learned he couldn’t just celebrate Kwanzaa, Jessica got a lesson about her youngest and Marv saw those pesky three ghosts we all know from A Christmas Carol. Kendra Beltran Lives somewhere […]

Fresh Off the Boat 3×07 ‘The Taming of the Dads’: RIP Jerry

Lately I’ve felt like Fresh Off the Boat was losing me just a little in the humor department, but that dry spell ended tonight with an insane amount of ‘90s references, Jessica taking control of the court and Louis finding a new friend. Kendra Beltran Lives somewhere in between reality and believing she’ll marry Backstreet […]

Fresh Off the Boat 3×06 ‘WWJD: What Would Jessica Do?’: Costco

As if I couldn’t love Jessica from Fresh Off the Boat anymore, she showed her major appreciation for Costco this week. Of course it came with some heartache as she lost her shopping buddy to a higher power. While she was dealing with that, her other sons were trying to make the boring cereal taste […]

fresh-off-the-boat-no-thanks-giving

Fresh Off the Boat 3×05 ‘No Thanks-giving’: Family trees

Eddie made a very important point this week on Fresh Off the Boat. 8th grade doesn’t matter. Even his principal and parents could see how right he was but at the same time, can you give a 14-year-old that much power. While they were dealing with that, they were also dealing with the idea of […]

Fresh Off the Boat 3×04 ‘Citizen Jessica’: East vs West

We’re a week away from what could potentially be Doom Day here in the US; the election that puts Hillary Clinton against a reality TV star. So it was fitting that Fresh Off the Boat had an election of their own…well the one that went down between another Clinton and Dole. Funny though, the issue […]

fresh-off-the-boat-breaking-chains

Fresh Off the Boat 3×02 ‘Breaking Chains’: Hired help

This year we saw Adam enter high school and like I said then, it doesn’t matter what decade you’re in – school is always the same. So while none of the Huangs on Fresh Off the Boat are heading towards the milestone, Eddie is stepping into his eighth grade shoes, while his little brother is […]

fresh-off-the-boat-coming-from-america

Fresh Off the Boat 3×01 ‘Coming from America’: Ghost

Didn’t it feel like something was missing? Finally Fresh Off the Boat is back and they headed back to the homeland – at least as far as the parental Huangs go. As for Eddie and his brothers, it was their first time seeing Taiwan and it’s safe to say they weren’t the biggest fans. From […]

Fresh Off the Boat 2×24 ‘Bring the Pain’: We’ve Got It Goin’ On

Unlike with The Goldbergs, it didn’t take a random case of reruns for me to fall in love with Fresh Off the Boat. They had me at the 90’s, even though I was weary since Fox had failed to do that decade justice. Remember Surviving Jack? I clearly didn’t recall the name as I did […]

fresh-off-the-boat-the-Manchurian-dinner-date

Fresh Off the Boat 2×23 ‘The Manchurian Dinner Date’: Palidictorian

So Fresh Off the Boat isn’t done with it’s second season and is going one week longer than ABC’s Wednesday night comedies. Just a heads up, but this week could’ve very well been the end as we saw growth from Jessica and Emery enter a new relationship (kind of). Kendra Beltran Lives somewhere in between […]

fresh-off-the-boat-gotta-be-me

Fresh Off the Boat 2×22 ‘Gotta Be Me’: Fun moms and beefcakes

Most people have seen both sides of their mom. The fun and the well, mom. Most does not include Eddie from Fresh Off the Boat. This week he was more than shocked to see his mother let her hair down, ignore the rules and actually have some fun. On the flip side, Louis tried to […]

fresh-off-the-boat-rent-day-2

Fresh Off the Boat 2×21 ‘Rent Day’: Squatter Fiasco

A half hour or so before turning on Fresh Off the Boat, I had to pay rent and bills for the month and with that – my bank account is like many around the first of the month, it’s crying. So when I saw what Jessica’s first tenants were doing to her, I couldn’t help […]

fresh-off-the-boat-hi-my-name-is

Fresh Off the Boat 2×20 ‘Hi, My Name Is…’: Toasters and Garfield

When the Huangs end up needing a new toaster, they wind up down memory lane and Louis and Jessica tell their kids how they got their American names to help Evan come to terms with being named after a random nurse who was in the room when he was born on Fresh Off the Boat. […]

Fresh Off the Boat 2×19 ‘Jessica’s Place’: Dramatic head turns…

Soap operas are one of the most addicting forms of entertainment. Possibly the grandfather of reality TV, they’d been around for decades before they finally made the jump from daytime to primetime – and one of the most entertaining of the new, nighttime soaps was Melrose Place. I feel like this show doesn’t get enough […]

fresh-off-the-boat-a-week-in-review

Fresh Off the Boat 2×18 ‘Week in Review’: Outbreak

Louis and Jessica’s modern day teamwork is put to the test when the boys get lice. Plus, Eddie goes toe to toe with a teacher over pizza and homework in this week’s Fresh Off the Boat. Kendra Beltran Lives somewhere in between reality and believing she’ll marry Backstreet Boy Nick Carter. After two years of […]
