But perhaps the best thing about this show is that its been giving ALOT of work to Asian-American actors (Yeah yeah, I know I wrote that whole article on hyphens). Asian-American actors, it seems, are constantly getting shafted when it comes to big time roles in the movies and television. How many A-list Asian-American actors are there on television and in Hollywood? Your answer would likely be a single digit, its pretty sad considering how long Asian-Americans have been part of the U.S.'s demographic spectrum, but I digress (for now). Anyway the show is good with that, featuring Daniel Dae Kim (from Lost), Grace Park (from Battlestar Galactica and a bunch of Canadian shows, wheeeee!), and Masi Oka (from Heroes). The show also features a bunch of other Asian-American talent with single episode cameos and a few reoccurring characters. Jason Scott Lee (the guy who played Bruce Lee) was in a recent episode I saw and that was pretty nifty.
