Fresh off the Boat

First impression review of the first two episodes.

If you like Black-ish, you might like this as a similar show. 

If you don’t, it might be the slightly different show you’re looking for.  ♥♥♥/5

Similarly to Black-ish, it’s a show about a family, this time Taiwanese rather than black, dealing with – in the first two episodes – moving to a new town and school “issues.” (When was the last time you saw straight As being used as a problem?)

Not similarly, it shows them being “fresh off the boat”, adapting to new ideas and working out how to be successful in 90s America rather than focusing on race.  I don’t dislike Black-ish, but in comparison at least these are real cultural differences rather than what sometimes seem like overreactions
