I don't think the characters and situations of "Little Mosque" are particularly unusual. But since the show deals with issues that have that have also irked me at my own mosque--for example, the totally unnecessary sexism coming from the various Muslims' ethnic culture (totally unnecessary in the framework of Islam and its founder). I feel relatively well represented by the character of Rayyan. I assume that Sarah is a Muslim to please her husband, or more likely in an effort to appease her unappeasable mother-in-law (I had one like that; she got herself a larger apartment on my wedding day so that my husband could move in with her); since Muslim men are allowed to marry anyone of the opposite sex, even atheists and scientologists, Sarah had no need to convert; and I consider her, at best, a Muslim in name only.
The first season was quite pedestrian, but it established characters, and rounded them out somewhat. Seasons two and three, I might give four stars to. (Just to establish what I might give five stars to Satijit Ray's "Music Room", or to "Rasho Mon"--or "The Battle of the Casbah," for its political relevance to present-day U.S.A.; I cannot think of one TV show I would give five stars to, even though I might have enjoyed them (I have also watched "Startrek: Next Generation" and "L.A. Law" because my husband was watching them).
Getting back to "Little Mosque", I am going to watch tonight season 6, disc 1: I am feeling not that the show is running out of steam, but that it already has done so. There are fewer characters. I feel that Reverend Thorne is a pointless monster, totally two-dimensional, while his predecessor is a human being. Baber at least has ability as a mathematician / statistician; for example, when he taught at his daughter's highschool, the students actually liked him so when Islam is not involved, he can be rational, even witty; and since he is not a specialist in humanities or social sciences, his religious rigidity appear logically justifiable.
So I would call "Litte Mosque" a somewhat shallow (but not stupid) entertainment, floating somewhere between two and four stars: that would make three stars a reasonable compromise.
