A young woman of Chinese descent (Awkwafina) struggles to navigate her late 20s while living in Flushing, New York, with her father (B.D. Wong), grandmother (former Orange is the New Black cast member Lori Tan Chinn), and cousin (Emmy-nominated Saturday Night Live star Bowen Yang) often coming to her helpful aid. Why it’s worth checking out if you like Simu Liu: Before they played close friends in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Simu Liu guest starred on a Season 1 episode of Awkwafina’s semi-autobiographical Comedy Central original series Awakwafina is Nora from Queens as a character referred to as “Garbage Boy” – one of two men Nora’s grandmother claims she had to choose between in the story of how she met her husband, all told in the style of an over-the-top Korean drama.
