In New Jersey, Ramy, son of Egyptian immigrants, begins a spiritual journey, divided between his Muslim community, God, and his friends who see endless possibilities.
Best Ramy Episodes
Watchseries; Enjoyed the first two episodes because I thought they showed how anyone can go through the same conflicts about faith and morality, but episode 3 was such that I don't know that I'll watch any further. Apparently, the main character is the only person in his peer group with any morals, and every girl he meets is not only attracted to him, but is also a sex fiend. Where were these women when I was dating???

Ramy watchseries. Like all the other shows mentioned in the subject Ramy takes a deep dive into the culture the protagonist lives in. It's funny, sad, emotional, hilarious and is a rollercoaster for emotions. Don't think of it as a comedy it's a show about the reality of living in Muslim/ethnic family and because it's a TV show and not a documentary there are some exaggerations which people in other reviews can't grasp but what can you do. As an ethnic immigrant who grew around Muslims in Australia, this show is stirs up conversation of the taboos in a brown society and explores each character with time and care. Again if you're a fan of the other shows you'll love this, if not then give it a shot with any expectations (specially expectation to be offended)
It's like Atlanta but for Arabs and Muslims. It's pretty early but critic reviews have been great and the fan reviews have been oddly low. I think people are boycotting for some awful reason. Relatable for sure, not just for Arabs and Muslims, but for everyone really. Anyone who may feel they don't know their place in the world or their community. The acting is very solid, especially from the parents who are both incredible.
To all those viewers (Muslims & non- Muslims), who criticize this series for delivering an inaccurate picture of the Muslim community in the US, one must remind them that Ramy is not a docuseries and never meant to be. It is Ramy Yussef's comedic take on leading life as a Muslim boy in a foreign country filled with varied faiths.
Some of the reviews are so frustrating. This is spot on with its portrayal of a Muslim family...with parents who immigrated here and children who were raised here....saying it isn't "Muslim" enough because the kids swear in front of their parents...I have always swore in front of my parents among other things that I think become more normal or common the longer we were here. After a while a lot of Muslim families in America kind of mash these new American normalcies with how a Muslim family might live who did NOT immigrate to America. This is spot on...the "Muslims" who decided this isn't real enough based on THEIR opinion and nothing else are so ignorant. This show is AMAZING!
Easily one of the best shows in the last decade. I binged through it. Something I never do.
Not being a Muslim myself, you witness universal truth how it is to be unfairly misjudged all accompanied by great sincere humor as we all evolve through this life in different age brackets (parents, sister, brother, friends) to be good human beings--excelling and failing all at the same time.
The acting, directing, writing is all TOP notch! Great casting all around.
I easily foresee this show winning awards this season!! It has that "it" factor!
