    Succumbed to the temptation to watch this mainstream sitcom [sic]. Awful. Boring drek. I expected stereotypes of Chinese immigrants, because the characters were supposed to be new arrivals to the states. Well, at least the mom was a total stereotype. But the family had been here for years, and was from Taiwan, not mainland China. Why this show will probably not last long, IMO, is that there was not a single really funny line in the entire show.

    Seems my fears panned out, insufferable MSM garbage. I'm sticking with Scandal, House of Cards, and American Horror Story as my more "mainstream" shows. Even if not ground breaking, I don't want to take a pencil to my eye after watching those shows.

    Stick w/ TCM, NatGeo, Discovery, or PBS, like I do. Sunday is Downton Day in this house! And, never hesitate to add to your DVD collection when you see something on sale:

    Amen MGINSD, Yes to Downton! I just started a few months ago and was hooked from day one. Dame Maggie Smith rocks my world.

    I refuse to watch any series/tv shows that poke or portray stereotypical stereo types of different people/groups, whether it's Asian, Blacks, white/whatever....The same thing why I don't find comedians are funny at all when they started talking about *Ethnic/Jokes!! #LAME !!! (Anyway, I'm addicted to watching SPARTACUS on netflix because I like Gladiators/Romans/Italians men in tights/loin-cloths fighting/f***** each other)>> icon_redface.gificon_redface.gificon_lol.gif
