Awkwafina is Nora From Queens: Season 1 (2020)

"Awkwakfina Is Nora From Queens" needs to find its own identity - and fast.

But ultimately, the show is Awkwafina's baby all the way, as she brings her own fearless twists to the slacker genre. She has the chops to anchor a series, and the wisdom to let other performers steal scenes.

What's remarkably genuine is that nothing feels didactic or forced. Its transgressions feel effortless because Awkwafina is being real: stoned, horny, and transnational.

The show is fine, albeit very dumb, and it's an entirely different dramatic sport that only underscores her ability-a little uncomfortable but totally undeniable-to play a whole lot of different sports.
