Little Mosque on the Prairie

I am a huge fan of Little Mosque on the Prairie. I first heard about it last year on Morning Edition, and was immediately hooked.

Here's some of the plot summary from the IMDB web site:

    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.

And, here's a clip from the first episode:

It has just the right blend of humor and social commentary, and is a great respite from the usual American dregs.
