Dorkaholics’ very own Andrew Nguyen said “After seeing the trailer for American Born Chinese at D23 of Summer 2022, I have been looking forward to this project and I must say it did not disappoint. Among all the Disney + projects that I have seen, this is definitely my favorite.”
The series has received a critic score of 96% on Rotten Tomatoes and has been declared one of the best TV and Streaming Shows of 2023.
Specific things to look forward to with the series according to Andrew include “a spectacular job in balancing character development and universal themes of identity… At the core of this story, it is diving in on the crisis that most of us in the AAPI community have undergone during our adolescent years as well as maybe now… How many of us at one time or another have rejected our cultural background and upbringing to conform to western ideologies so that we would be able to fit in?”
