Review: ABC’s Fresh Off The Boat

Despite not having very much success with launching Tuesday night comedies (with everything from Selfie to Trophy Wife to Don’t Trust the B and Happy Endings all getting cancelled at various rates of swiftness), ABC’s gonna give it a shot again with the family sitcom, Fresh Off The Boat, inspired by Eddie Huang’s memoir of the same name. I really hope the problematic time slot works okay for the show because it happens to be the best new network comedy of the season.

The Tuesday night timeslot really seems like a matter of not having anywhere else to put the show rather than a slight against it as ABC is spending the next week doing all it can to get Fresh off the Boat noticed. There are two episodes airing tonight (one at 8:30 and then one in the 9:30 post-Modern Family slot) as well as two episodes airing on Tuesday at 8 (it’s regular time slot) and 8:30. So within a week, you’ll have seen four episodes of the series and I imagine you’ll find it as funny and charming as I do.

New Crowdfunding Effort

For those who listen to the podcast or visit the site often, you may have caught on that I’ve been going through some changes in my personal life and those changes are challenging me to veer in a different direction.

When I graduated high school, I had two dreams: to get into radio and to become a published author. I’ve had a career in radio over the past few years and was able to be an integral part of building a station from the ground up. I programmed the music for the station, had my own show, got to take part in a number of exciting events and really just enjoyed waking up and going to my dream job every day.

Despite finding a place in radio, my passion for writing was still persistent and I made time for it as often as I could. I self-published my first novel, Deny, as an eBook back in 2013 and have been hard at work on its sequel as well as another novel. Getting a book noticed is extremely hard and I’ve been wrestling with the reality that self-publishing a novel every few years and trying to get the attention of literary agents and publishing companies could be a long and tedious journey. I’m willing to go on that journey if need be, but I would be lying if I didn’t say I wasn’t anxious to find a way to expedite the process.
