Asian American Man Presented as Desirable on TV

Post by MrMan » November 13th, 2015, 7:24 pm

I've seen some episodes of the new TV show Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. It's about a Jewish lawyer woman who lost her virginity to an Asian-American boyfriend in summer camp. Right before being offered a position as partner in her law firm, she sees her ex on the street in New York, before he returns from a visit. She decides to move to the town where he lives in California. So she turns down the job offer and gets a job at a small firm there.

The Asian American character doesn't have a very good career and he seems kind of childish and clueless to me. The lead actresses character is kind of neurotic. But it is interesting that for some reason she finds the Asian American man to be desirable, which is a rare thing for a TV show, and maybe a plus for Asian Americans.

I don't know if the guy is good-looking or not. I can't tell that sort of thing for guys. Maybe he's particularly unattractive and that's part of the show. Was that the case with Zoolander (not Asian, but I've heard people say Ben Stiller isn't that good looking.) Maybe some guy who can tell if a guy is good-looking can give some feedback.
