A show about an Muslim Arabic family Living in a Jewish neighborhood in Israel
3 October 2012 | by (Haifa, Israel) – See all my reviews

One of the best shows I've ever seen (Not just Israeli but in general). Manages to portray many aspects of Israeli society, especially dealing with Arab Jewish relations. Deals relatively well with the many complicated dilemmas facing Israeli Arabs, as well as can be expected of a comedy. It's incredibly funny. Sayed Kashua is a genius. I would also highly recommend all three of his books, although I've only read the first one in English, and it was much better in Hebrew. If you want to understand Jewish Arab relationship in Israel while not getting thoroughly depressed I highly recommend this. Although if you truly want to understand you'll need to see and read more material, as the show is a comedy and only strays from the confines of such to a certain extent.
