Reasons I Like “Andi Mack”
1. It’s nice to see a mainstream production that shows Asian characters as multi-dimensional. Sure, Celia somewhat represents the stereotypical Asian mother, but as someone who has one of those mothers, I laugh at many of Celia’s scenes when I think, “OMG. That’s so my mother!” It’s ok to laugh at ourselves when the show is also showing Bex, an Asian American, who’s not studious and, most importantly, who’s not there just to be the “BFF” to some main character. She’s a real portrayal. Asian characters aren’t always developed that way.
2. Andi is learning a lesson I taught my daughter. A guy is there to improve, not be, your life. And, if he’s not improving it, Walk On, Gurl.
3. It shows a unique family structure. This is definitely something more people need to see.
