This show is the anti of Shahs of Sunset on another station. First, this reality show is set in Dearborn, Michigan and features a realistic group of Muslims with everyday problems. The American Muslims here are more real, believable, and sympathetic. We could have learned a lot more about the faith and their differences. Instead of being enlightened, the show faced harsh criticism and was canceled. Too bad, it didn't live to see another show called the Shahs of Sunset where spoiled brats from Beverly Hills, Persian Muslims and Persian Jews, have a close circle of friend and spend their money foolishly, getting drunk at parties, and behaving badly. This show was the complete opposite where they seemed to struggle with their daily lives with everyday ordinary problems. Sadly, this show was shelved for too much controversy. I can't understand how the other show doesn't get the same flack for being over the top. Where TLC could have made a difference, it got shelved because of controversy. Most people would have agreed that it was better than it's successor.
