Margaret Cho stars in this sit-com about a Korean-American family's efforts to become Americanized. Some members find it easier than others! Light comedy with lots of slght gags and physical comedy. Entertaining and doesn't take much brainpower for the viewer to enjoy it.

Like Cosby's Show for Korean
Gloryking | Seoul, Korea | 11/25/2005

""All American Girl" was the first sitcomedy to focus on Asian family in USA. And it starred the funny Korean comedian Margaret Cho. The show didn't last for many seasons, but it was very funny. Especially the old-world Grandma. The show was warm and clever and presented the Asian experience in a way everyone could understand and enjoy. I'll be ordering the set so my grandchildren in USA can laugh and think about what it means to be Korean-American."
A Great Series Arrives on DVD

"Margaret Cho got her start in the late 1980's on the stand-up comedy circuit. In the early 90's she broke ground with her series All-American Girl which is now available on DVD for the first time. All-American Girl was the first prime time series about a Asian-American family. The show debuted in the fall of 1994. Cho starred in the series Margaret Kim. Margaret lives at home with her very colorful family. Margaret, the character, is a fun loving young women who enjoys life. Her mother very much wants Margaret to follow Korean customs and date Korean men. Margaret's brother Stuart (portrayed by B.D. Wong Law & Order, Oz), dates Korean women and is in medical school. Margaret finds support from her grandmother (Amy Hill), father, and younger brother Eric (J.B. Quon.) All-American Girl was a great situation comedy with potential to have a lasting run, but sadly ABC pulled the plug on the series after just one season.

All-American Girl was a really funny show. The grandmother stole every scene she was in. The character of the mother was a bit over the top with her strong believes and seemingly bad attitude, but that is the way her character was written. It was a really great ensemble cast and was just as enjoyable as an Everyone Loves Raymond or a Family Matters.

To understand All-American Girl you must check out the special feature All-American Girl: A Look Back With Margaret Cho. Margaret went through so much with the network when it came to the production of the show. She is joined in this feature with Amy Hill who starred as the grandmother in the series. This was the first time that Asian-American's were seen on prime television as a family just living their lives and there were conflicts with the casting and the show was not without controversy as some Asian-Americans complained that all of the actors in the show were not Korean. On top of that in the feature Margaret discloses many strife's that occurred with the production and even details how once world politics came into conversation when it came to the series. This feature shines so much light on the series and Amy Hill even gets back into her grandma get up at the end!

If you missed All-American Girl during it's original run, do pick it up on DVD. The complete series is available in a four disc box set. It's a really funny show and it's a shame it didn't last longer.
This was great ;-)

"This is a fantastic series. I was so upset when they cancelled it, because I thought it was funny as anything. Margaret Cho had the best lines and the whole dysfunctional family were hillarious. This is a must see. You'll laugh until you cry. She was so snappy and quick and sarcastic, and just wait till you see the Grandma. All she cares about is her tv shows. She's hilarious.
The funniest episode is the Pulp Sitcom with Quentin Tarentino. Especially if you are a fan of Pulp Fiction you will see so many takes on it. From the clean up scene, the story of the watch, the diner and the car. It's quite cool and was probably really hip back then.
This dvd set is a must for all Margaret Cho fans and fans of the show. It was and still is quite funny."
