Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

highly acclaimed, but quite crass

This is not a show for kids. And it's quite crass for adults too. Lots and lots of sexual references and situations. Language. Very mature themes. This is not family watching material.

We love Ramy!

Each episode brilliantly explores the many struggles that immigrant families must face in the U.S., in this case, an Egyptian family who are Muslim. Very real issues are shown, such as Ramy being asked if he’s a terrorist; the loneliness of the mother; the struggle to observe Ramadan; the feeling of disconnection from your country of origin; and the pitfalls of cross-cultural dating. The acting is fantastic and we find ourselves laughing and also relating to it at the same time. There is definitely a lot of swearing and sex, so I wouldn’t recommend it for anyone under 16. My husband and I can’t wait for the next season to begin because we’ve grown so attached to Ramy’s character!
