This sitcom made mild history as the first network program to deal with a multi-generational Asian family (the Korean Kim family) coping with the shifts in attitude between the traditional grandmother, the transitional parents, and the more-or-less all-American grandchildren. Its failure stemmed from its uncertain focus on what it means to be Korean in contemporary California society, including the somewhat objectionable casting of Chinese and Japanese actors as Koreans, and from the treatment of stand up comic Cho as a rather stereotypical Valley girl on the prowl for boys, in complete contradiction of her popular image as a tough-talking, independent woman. In the latter episodes there was an attempt to shift the show into a show-biz formula, with Cho's character becoming manager of an inept rock band, but to no avail. In fact, the last episode was a "retooled" pilot for ABC, which included axing most of the original cast (Amy Hill and MC being the exception), a new cast and locations.
The set from " Boy Meets World " is used for the first episode.
Kennedy Kabasares, who played Lonnie Park in this episode, lived with Margaret Cho for about four years and was the first person to encourage her to do stand up comedy.
During this episode Mrs. Kim mentions some of the Adult titles that are in the video section of the Kims' bookstore. Those titles are: In & Out of Africa, The Booberly Hillbillies, and Free Your Willy.
Margaret uses the movie Rocky as an analogy, During which she says "..Rocky's friend Pauly..". Pauly was actually Rocky's brother-in-law (after the first movie).
Amy Hill used her mother as a model of Grandma Kim.
Stuart Kim is a cardiology resident, but spends most of this episode in the E.R.
In this episode Gloria and Ruthie have a male room mate, named Alton, who we never see.
