Why Asian women might love Selfie

Lots of Asian women love American television, and now a brand new series on ABC might just give you something to break the ice with.  Selfie, starring Karen Gillan and John Cho, premiered on September 30.

You are probably wondering why this show might appeal to Asian women.  The premise is simple and lots of fun: it’s a modern take on the classic My Fair Lady, but instead of being set in England, it’s set in the United States and the main characters are an American girl and an Asian man.

It isn’t every day that you see an Asian male in the lead role of a comedy series on a major network.  Additionally, the show is pretty groundbreaking in the sense that its main focus is actually this interracial couple.  If you enjoy poking fun at today’s crazed obsession with selfies and social media, this show is for you.

The show’s pilot has been available online for about a month, but the show recently premiered in a primetime slot to mixed reviews.  While it is impossible to say how the show will end up doing, one thing is for certain: it’s a cute show with a unique twist.

The next time you’re chatting online with your special lady friend and the topic of American TV comes up, you’ve got a really great current topic to discuss.  Now, go watch that first episode if you haven’t already seen it!
