The Prancing Elites Project, Oxygen’s latest show, is a show that hit all of the heartstrings. It succeeds in making me simultaneously disappointed and inspired by the human race.
That’s a tough beginning to an article, right? Well, let’s get into the recap and you can see what I’m talking about. Continue reading “The Prancing Elites Project” review: Episode 1
The season finale of Fresh Off the Boat has come and gone, and I’m already feeling the void! ABC, you’d better renew Fresh Off the Boat! According to this Vulture interview with Nahnatchka Khan, ABC won’t reveal what’s coming back until next month, so we have a few more days to wait, but I have to agree with Khan that I’m “cautiously optimistic” that Fresh Off the Boat will return. I don’t see why it wouldn’t; it outran the Cancellation Bear throughout its 13-episode season.
Okay, enough numbers talk; let’s get to the recap, which involves the Huangs coming to terms with being “clear.” Continue reading “Fresh Off the Boat” recap: “So Chineez”
Jessica and Louis are stuck with volunteering for the boys’ school’s extracurricular activities. They don’t want to do it, but it was either that or paying money to the school (I’m assuming the PTA). Jessica is tasked with running the school’s inoffensive play, while Louis becomes the coach of the basketball team. Everyone comes away with lessons learned. Continue reading “Fresh Off the Boat” recap: “Dribbling Tiger, Bounce Pass Dragon”
Fresh Off The Boat‘s latest episode, “Very Superstitious,” was also very funny. But the show has made headlines for another reason outside of this being one of the funniest episodes yet. The real Eddie Huang has been tweeting about his displeasure with the show, and I’ll get to that bit of news and my (unsolicited) opinions later on in another post, since I actually have a lot of historical TV stuff to bring into the equation. But first, the recap! Continue reading “Fresh Off the Boat” recap: “Very Superstitious”
This week’s was a funny and fascinating episode of Fresh Off the Boat. Funny in that it tackled same-sex relationships and attraction in an irreverent way. Fascinating in that it had an opportunity to look at intra-racial marginalization but failed to deliver.

I’m finally putting this up! Apologies to the major lack of recap. Here we go.

Like so many season finales this year, I literally don’t know what happened, even though I’ve watched every minute of it. Let’s go down what happened in bulleted points, because I’d be writing for days if I went second by second.

First of all, I know this recap is HECKA late. I’m so sorry for that; I had a lot of work to catch up on and some job opportunities to apply for, and then my internet went out…so things got hectic. Anyway, enough of my apologizing. Let’s just skip all the pretense and get into what was really pearl-clutching about Empire‘s penultimate episode, “Sins of the Father.”

Lessons abound in this episode of Fresh Off the Boat, “Phillip Goldstein.” To give a very quick synopsis: Eddie wants to go to the Beastie Boys concert, but Jessica doesn’t want him to go. She really doesn’t understand her son sometimes, and his obsession with rap is one of those things. To quote her, she asks him why he can’t just be a “good Chinese kid” like his brothers.

What an episode! There were twists and turns, guns and sizzurp, scheming and elevator breaches, hacks and mental breakdowns, and a sweet comeuppance moment for Jamal!
