Anyone else watching this? I freaking love it. It's getting tons of hype for being only the second national network sitcom with a focus on Asian Americans, and it should. It's flipping ridiculous that it's 2015 and Margaret Cho's show was the only other Asian American-focused show that's been on mainstream TV to date.

I like it! It's still a bit one dimensional on characters besides the mother and Eddie, but its got lots of promise and Eddie Huang is one of the funniest comics, chefs and lawyers out there!

Eddie has talked about how the show doesn't align with his vision completely and I thought this was interesting

I am loving this show. The mother is the best. Oh, my God. My roommate has a 'three episode' rule in which the pilot of sitcoms is NEVER funny, and he even laughed out loud during this one.

Oh man, the "Fajita Man" episode gave me a serious flashback when they show one of Eddie's classmates drinking a SqueezeIt:
