Still 'Fresh' at 100

'Fresh Off The Boat' celebrates its landmark 100th episode.



My, how far we've come. Tonight marks the landmark 100th episode of ABC's Fresh Off The Boat, starring your favorite prime time network sitcom family. You never thought the Huangs would take it this far.

Now in its groundbreaking fifth season, Fresh Off The Boat follows the continuing misadventures of the Huangs -- Jessica and Louis, their sons Eddie, Emery and Evan, and Grandma -- as they pursue the American dream in 1990s suburban Orlando. The series, based on the memoir by Eddie Huang, stars Constance Wu, Randall Park, Hudson Yang, Forrest Wheeler, Ian Chen, Lucille Soong, Chelsey Crisp and Ray Wise.

Need to catch up? Here's a ridiculously fast recap of every single episode that got us here:



That was fun, if not particularly helpful.



Episode 100 sees Eddie shipped off to a Taiwanese culture exchange program, modeled after the infamous "Love Boat" study tour for young Taiwanese Americans. Many Asian Americans will be familiar with this program -- there's even a documentary about it -- but it'll probably new to mainstream TV audiences. Kind of amazing.

Tonight's episode, titled "Under the Taipei Sun," also marks something of a crossover for (North) Asian American television. Simu Liu, who plays Jung on the beloved Canadian sitcom Kim's Convenience, guest stars as a noodle vendor named Willie who helps out Eddie when he gets separated from his tour group.

Fresh Off The Boat airs Fridays at 8:00pm on ABC. Set your VCRs.
