4.0 out of 5 stars Hooray for Little Mosque! Sept. 26 2007
Format:DVD
I am basing this on having seen the CBC TV series. If I allowed for how new and risky the attempt at something like this is then it's 5 stars. And this is the first season with no experience behind it. Just the fact that it portrays muslims as real ordinary people with the typical flaws people have, with a sense of humour, and with all the same congregation problems that other religions have, especially in small towns - it's great! By the way, if the setting seems unrealistic (a mosque in a small town on the Canadian Prairies), bear in mind that the first mosque in North America was built in a very rural part of North Dakota. It has recently been re-built near Ross ND. Settlement by Lebanese muslims goes back to the late 1800s and relatives visited each other between North Dakota and Saskatchewan. So it's not unrealistic at all. Recently the first year of the series was picked up by Dubai, Turkey, the Palestinian West Bank & Gaza, Finland, and Israel! How about it, Americans?

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Box Set!! Nov. 15 2007
Format:DVD
I picked up the Little Mosque on the Prairie season 1 dvd box set and it's a home run. The first season only had 8 episodes (I think this season that's currently airing has 20) but the box set has great added extras including inside the writers room and some interesting interviews with the show's key actors. If you love the show than you'll luv the dvd. I have alot of friends who love the show and will be getting this dvd from me as a christmas/hannukah/eid present. Look forward to seeing when season 2 comes out in box set as well. Little Mosque on the Prairie ROCKS!

5.0 out of 5 stars Mercy Me! So Much Merriment! Aug. 22 2008
By Breyel
Format:DVD
Little Mosque on the Prairie is a remarkably novel way to show Muslims and how their religion is practiced. Set in the fictional prairie town of Mercy, Saskatchewan, Canada, you see Muslims with liberal and conservative views; how they have assimilated into the dominate society (small town Canada); and how they interact with their fellow non-Muslim neighbours who can be just as broad or narrow minded.

While Little Mosque on the Prairie tries to neither dramatise nor make political commentary, it does show through humor that Muslims and non-Muslims all have their funny idiosyncrasies and share much common ground. Through laughter, the show makes an effort to break down prejudices and hopefully foster a better understanding and tolerance between cultures.

The comedy is family-oriented, lighthearted and fun as sitcoms go. It looks like some of the characters are still developing. Am anxious to see how they grow in Seasons 2 and 3. I find Muslim feminist Rayyan Hamoudi (Sitara Hewitt), conservative Nigerian immigrant Fatima Dinssa (Arlene Duncan), divorced college economics professor Baber Siddiqui (Manoj Sood) and bigot DJ Fred Tupper (Neil Crone) to be the most well-rounded characters. Baber?s daughter, Layla Siddiqui (Aliza Vellani) is quite interesting in that she represents the average teenage Muslim girl struggling to balance her life between being a good Muslim and a regular Canadian teenager who's into music, clothes and boys.

What? You?re still not convinced it?s a good sitcom? You haven?t seen it yet? Do what I did. Watch some of the episodes on YouTube.

There were eight episodes in Season 1:

5.0 out of 5 stars A Brit Canadian T.V. Nut June 4 2008
Format:DVD
Having become a fan of Canadian T.V. through watching Red Green, Corner Gas and Air Farce,I to said the least was intrigued.Now in the U.K, we've become use to ethnic humour thanks to Goodness Gracious Me ,The Kumars At No. 42 and others.And the one I have found is that so-called ethnic humour is nonexsistant.Why? Simple,because everyone of the characters in this and Corner Gas you and I have met at at one time of another. And speaking as a Christian I know .This a show ,I know.that will never be seen on U.K. T.V.(Shame I hear you say)but this DVD set is now in my top ten collection.Welldon all the cast and crew and well done CBC.

3.0 out of 5 stars Religion???? Jan. 7 2012
Format:DVD
Here is hoping that the depiction of Moslem religion and practices is more accurate than that of Anglican religion and Practices. The visiting Anglican churchman who ranted from the pulpit would be liable for an urgent psychiatric assessment in any Anglican community that I have ever seen.
