Please watch it and leave your comments at the bottom of this log. (moderated to prevent idiots advertising their businessess) Little Mosque on the Priarie - a sitcom on CBC Canada is the best thing that has happened to the Muslims. It helps remove the sterotyping and open people's hearts and minds.
Every word is funny - pay attention to it.

Little Mosque on the Prairie
Review by Mike Ghouse, January 13, 2007
This is one of the funniest sitcoms made on Muslims, and it must be acknowledged as TV production at its best in building bridges between the communities. In its premier episode the Sitcom has dealt with the most crucial elements busting the myths about Islam and Muslims and created a desire, in a funny way to know more about them and laugh more about ourselves.
The average Canadian or the American would laugh boisterously, as much as a Muslim would at the ignorance of the characters of talk show hosts, Mayor, the repairman and the average Joe. The director has done a fabulous job in stereo typing people, be it Muslims or the conservative people of the Town of Mercy, as the director has tactfully shown the idiotic and intelligent versions on both sides of the divide.
This is the best thing that has ever happened to Muslims and Islam. Just like all people, Muslims have been crying out loud not be mis-presented. Finally, this show has done it; it is like our prayers coming true.
At least the world can see what they hear on the talk show radios, and what they see on the television is not necessarily the truth. This is the finest Sitcom on Muslims. Please remember, it is a comedy. I request my co-religionist to relax and enjoy the sit com. Please don't find faults with it - such as Muslims looking at the intruder while praying. In reality, it does not happen - but in the sitcom they show it. Just laugh it off.
