12: Fresh Off the Boat Outs the Girl Next Door

 

“A League of Her Own” (November 17, 2017)

For the second of the “off season” bonus episodes, Drew and Glen wanted to compare how a modern day, family-friendly sitcom compares with the classic versions they discussed in the first season. They picked ABC series Fresh Off the Boat, which in its fourth season had a prominent character — Nicole, the “Winnie Cooper” of this flashback series on whim the lead character has a crush — come out as a lesbian. The storyline is handled very well, and what’s most surprising is that in 2017, a coming out story on a mainstream show isn’t controversial in the least.
