At home on an inordinately gloomy and rainy New York Sunday? Order some delivery food, open a bottle of wine, go to Hulu.com and check out Sandra Oh playing a single mom raising a daughter who’s getting into Chinese magical luck charms in what appears to be a Chinese Canadian community in Vancouver, B.C:
Long Life, Happiness and Prosperity
Vodpod videos no longer available.
Oh, you want something lighthearted and doesn’t involve working class Chinese folks played by the “oh no you didn’t just pour soy sauce on my ish” lady from Joy Luck Club or the creepy Chinese dude with way too much botox and hair plugs from Alias, Kiss of the Dragon, and the Corruptor? Then see John Cho as Teddy Wong, the Chinese seafood specialist, in 10 episodes of the short lived comedy: Kitchen Confidential.
Both the movie (Sandra Oh works at a dim sum joint) and the show (John Cho gets lured to work in a new restaurant because he’s offered visas for all his chinese chefs) have their faults. But they have their moments.
