Awkwafina, Chin and Wong 

Review of "Awkwafina Is Nora From Queens" 1/25/20 by Suzanne
airs now on HULU

Actress/comedian Awkwafina plays a Chinese-American woman, Nora, that lives with her parents in a messy room and doesn't have a real job. She's kind of a loser. I didn't find it very funny, to be honest. I'm probably the wrong age to enjoyed it because I'm not in the my 20's or 30's.

BD Wong plays her very patient father. He's the best part of this series, in my opinion. I think the show is based on her real life. They've already renewed it for a second season. Don't ask me why! Also, I have to add that the title of the show is needlessly long.
