Storyline

The location is Mercy Saskatchewan, a small town in the Canadian prairies. A small but devout community of Muslims has settled there, headed by community leader Yasir Hamoudi, a local building contractor. He is married to Sarah, a Caucasian ex-Christian who has converted to Islam for her husband. Their adult daughter, Rayyan, is a feminist Muslim doctor. The religious leader of the Muslim community - the Imam - is Amaar Rashid, a young, Canadian-born ex-lawyer from Toronto, who came to Mercy to replace Baber Siddiqui, who was deemed too extreme by many in the Mercy Muslim community. The local diner is run by Fatima Dinssa, a Nigerian Muslim who is strict about her religion but more liberal in her cultural values. The Muslims in Mercy are co-existing with their Christian neighbors, sometimes harmoniously, sometimes not. Reverend Duncan Magee welcomes his Muslim neighbors, especially if they enhance the social and economic fabric of the community and his parish. Likewise, Mayor Ann ... Written by Huggo

Trivia

When the series finale aired in April 2012 the CBC negotiated distribution deals in 92 foreign countries including Israel. Ironically, at that time, it did not air on any television outlet within the United States; Canada's next door neighbor. It has now been made available streaming over the Internet, for American customers, on the Hulu network. See more »

A whimsical anti-racial comedy about a Muslim community in the middle of the Canadian prairies.
10 January 2007 | by See all my reviews

Having caught the first episode this evening, I was pleasantly surprised that the CBC has produced a quality comedy, even in light of the controversial content. This show should earn notoriety through its fine acting, intelligent commentary, and its combination of palatable slapstick and wry humour, thankfully with heavier emphasis on the latter. Instead the controversy behind the fact that it is primarily about a group of people that follow a religion that has been completely demonized in the western world has powered its media attention. Their is nothing about this comedy that should incense people, it is not a Muslim extremist justifier, it is not an attempt to integrate violent people into docile Canadian culture. It is just what it should appear to be: a fish-out-of-water comedy with a relevant, modern twist. The hatred and prejudice that has been spewed about this show (weeks before it aired even its first episode) is completely unjustified (and plain old racist in my opinion) can only show that those doing the spewing haven't even watched the show, and due to their own shortcomings, probably never will. Too bad, cause its damn funny.
