A Show For The Whole Family..
1 October 2007 | by (Oman) – See all my reviews

"Freej" or slang for "Neighborhood", the famous animated series that is watched by millions of families in the Middle East during the Holly Month of Ramadan while breaking their long day of fasting, is the brainchild of the brilliant Mohammed Saeed Harib. The show has acclaimed excellent raves from both the audience and media and the series became a household name after being released for the first time during Ramadan of 2006. It generates big laughs as it deals with social issues in the Emirates & the Middle East area in general through

humorous yet to the point situations. The stars of this phenomena are four sweet looking old Emarati ladies; the genuine UM Saeed, the oblivious Um Saloom, the up to date Um Alawi and the rebellious Um Khammas. The show focuses on their struggle finding their place while maintaining the old and genuine traditions in the heart of the booming city of Dubai.

The 2nd season started on the 13th of this month the first day of Ramadan and a few issues that were tackled in some of the episodes are being called "exaggerated and outrageous" by some people, even though that what was discussed on those episodes was a fact and happening in the reality. Never the less it didn't stop millions from tuning in every evening to watch Um Khammas going out ballistic as usual, while Um Alawi tries to lower the rising tension, meanwhile Um Saeed keeps complaining about her fragile knees and in the middle of it all Um Saloom is snoring!!
