Asian Sitcoms

Recommended Posts

we have black sitcoms. we have white sitcoms. we do not have any asian sitcoms (unless i missed out on something?).

 

i only watch tv when i end up staying inside all day long and the computer becomes the most aggrivating thing on earth (besides lady robots trying to molest everyones gay children)...and what i have noticed is that you get to learn a little bit from sitcoms.

 

i would like to learn more about asian homelife in america....and i dont want some fucking americanized shit either. i dont want to see a house of asian people wearing all this fucking american shit..i want them to use their own style. i dont want to watch some asian folks speaking perfect english...like...not even showing their roots. black sitcoms usually use their regualr talk...you know...the intonation and shit like that. so i feel it would be a great thing to see an asian sitcom. why one doesn't exist to this day makes me want to smash a unicorn over the head with the largest cell phone i can find.

 

knowing america...and what it i$ like today, thi$ wont exi$t. unless they tossed in a million ads for all these big companies and all this shit. fucking world.

 

dance like a popsicle salesman.

 

i have had it.

sorry k it won't happen, it's not that what you said wouldn't have a place, i just don't think the asians will fall for it. i think they look at their english intonation differently than blacks, mexicans, it's not a style, it's something to be fixed, you know, a problem. besides real asians are all about being bilingual, so an asian sitcom would have to be subtitled or overdubbed when they are getting stylie.

 

on a side note, i heard on npr the other day about rev. moon, down there, settin up shop in paraguay. he's got this one guy, a polish dude, who speeks with the most blatant asian accent i've ever heard, and being i was listening to it on the radio, they felt the need to put into words that he talks like an asian, but was in fact polish. weird.

no shit it is not the only way to learn.

 

i have some asian friends, but i wouldn't hang with the ones i know because they dont share enough similar interests as me. if i knew of an asian kid who had the same interests as me and proved that i could actually hang with him/her outside of school then woo hoo knowledge learned...but i havent one such a person at this moment.

 

look i know dam right that tv is not a good learning source..i am well aware of this...but i tihnk it would be interesting to see an asian sitcom on tv. that is all.

magnum, now there was a multicultural show, watched the reruns for years. i think it could work, i mean focus around the dinner table and shit, have these big tense moments between parents and the teenage children, fast time blank out during homework/housework time, and then only the loose time with parents and parents' friends, or children/childrens' friends. maybe a little dualism with either mom or dad and the kids, there could be a show there.

 

no one would really want to watch this shit, i mean asians have to be the most repressed race in the country, or maybe the jews, or the amish. an amish sitcom i could watch, bunch of amish quoting bible stories and having funny old testament names and shit. great shit for mom too, remember how much she loved witness with harrison ford?

Did'nt alot of the Asian groups tear "All American Girl" apart.Half the cast members or something were'nt Korean.Then they made Cho go on a diet or something because she looked too Asian.

that was really stupid. don't talk anymore.

 

we're talking about asian-americans, not asians. that's the biggest problem facing the asian american community is people expecting them to have severe accents and be otherwise stereotypically foreign. i'm trying to find an appropriate article about how asian people will be the last to be fully accepted as american.

 

white people won't buy asian comedy unless it's a bunch of fobs doing ridiculous shit, just like white people buy rap because it's thugs being as black as possible.

 

i say give bobby lee his own show, that kid cracks my shit up.

 

oh, and margaret cho is korean, not japanese.

Canned. All-American Girl was the first sitcom to have a mostly Asian-American cast, and Asian groups baaaaaaaaashed the shit out of it. Instead of coming together to support and possibly influence producers to make the writing better, they just protested the crap out of that show. The writing sucked.

 

The most recent and funniest portrayal of an Asian family on a sitcom has got to be Gilmore Girls (I love that show.) Keiko Agena plays Korean-American teenager Lane Kim. Her mom steals the show though. Completely histerically sterotypical Korean mom. No boys! Wait...

 

"And on CBS's midseason replacement series "Kiss Me, Guido," which is likely to begin early next year, the Philippine-American actor Alec Mapa is featured as a gay character."

hahahahahahahahahahahaha.

"so an asian sitcom would have to be subtitled or overdubbed"

 

where did that come from?

if asian people are on tv they'll be speaking english. fluently.

come on dude, you're taking it out of context. the point i was making was that asians revere their natural language, something that shouldn't get lost via poor television.
