Fresh Off the Boat first look: Ali Wong, Ming-Na Wen, and Jeremy Lin appear in the '80s
The Fresh Off the Boat team is heading back to the 1980s in a special episode next week — and they’re bringing Ali Wong, Ming-Na Wen, and Jeremy Lin with them.
In an episode titled “The Flush,” the normally ’90s-set series will take viewers back a decade to see at Louis’ (Randall Park) collegiate drinking days. And as these exclusive images show, it seems like he had good company: He’s joined by comedians Wong and Sheng Wang, NBA star Lin, and Wen (not to mention some very dated outfits; R.I.P. white belts!).
Here’s the full episode description: “Louis excitedly plans a guys’ weekend for he and Eddie, but is disappointed when he invites his buddies over for a sleepover instead. Unbeknownst to Louis, Eddie and his friends were hiding out in his room, trying beer for the first time. So when Eddie has an adverse reaction to alcohol, also known as the Asian Flush, Louis reassures his eldest son that the discomfort will pass and reminisces about his college drinking days. Meanwhile, Jessica, Emery, Evan, and Honey go on a road trip to Georgia in search of “The Big Peanut” and to save a few dollars on a piece of furniture.”
“The Flush” airs Tuesday, March 14, at 9 p.m. ET.
Eddie Huang’s memoir adaptation tells the comical adjustments of a Taiwanese-American family settling into the wild ways of ’90s Orlando, Florida.
