Fresh Off The Boat

Based off of the book by Eddie Huang, Fresh Off The Boat has probably raised a few eyebrows from its title alone.  A term that has been used derogatorily towards Asians, perhaps the show is trying to reclaim the phrase?  Critics (Huang especially) have been tough on FOB, saying it enforces stereotypes.  Set in 1990s Orlando, Florida, the comedy tackles cultural differences and, yes, stereotypes, in a clever, unique way.
