Hole In The Wall


今日の英語:Fresh Off the Boat

= 移民してきたはいいけれど、その国の文化・習慣・言語に馴染みきれていない人々。お、俺?


 So, when I heard there was going to be a new sitcom entitled "Fresh off the Boat," about a Chinese-American family who move to Florida to open a steakhouse, I was ambivalent. I want to see more faces like me on TV, and am also afraid to see faces like me on TV. Better to be invisible than to be caricatured. The over-the-top Mickey Rooney nonsense may be out of bounds now, but not the new stereotype of math geniuses and sneaky perpetual foreigners who drive badly.

 「ティファニーで朝食を」のMickey Rooneyは確かにひどかったけれど、このABCのドラマはちょっと興味ある。まだ放映されてないけれど、トレイラーも面白げ。
