HASH(0xa7fafe0c) out of 5 stars What a wonderful series Aug. 10 2009
By Shai Farber - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I happened to glance at Link TV one day, and this series happened to be on at the time.
Since Hebrew is my mother tongue, I had to watch.
The plot is about the trials and tribulations of Amjad, a journalist of Arab Israeli descent. The show's language is mainly Hebrew with Arabic and English interspersed throughout. In Israel the title Arab Labor, is akin to shoddy labor. It was/is used as a denigrating phrase for Arab capability.
The show is funny and full of heart. Amjad is torn between the respect he owes to his scheming "old fashion" father, and to his modern secular upbringing, which brings him closer in spirit to the modern secular Israelis. However, since he is an Arab, he does encounter bias in every turn. How his problems are handled, is the main crux of the plot, and they are handled with love and a great sense of humor.
I highly recommend this DVD to one and all.

HASH(0xa5bcf708) out of 5 stars "Good Times" or "The Jeffersons" for Israel July 8 2009
By M. H. Fayad - Published on
Format: DVD
This product is mostly in Hebrew, but is subtitled in English. I was lucky to get an early release copy. This is the Israeli version of "The Jeffersons" or "Good Times". It is groundbreaking as it is a series about a family of Palestinian-Israelis. A view of Israeli and Palestinian-Israeli life from the view of an Arab-Israeli. He is a normal father, husband and son who is trying to fit in to a dual society. He isn't a confrontational person nor is he controversial, he is just trying to make it through the day and have a normal life. Not only is this a great glimpse into lives that most Americans and even most Israelis will never see, but it is FUNNY. It is life, whether it is trying to find a good kindergarten for his daughter or dealing with parents or in-laws.

Cutting social commentary done in a humorous way. Should be required viewing for all potential suicide bombers and ultra orthodox settlers.

HASH(0xa7a574a4) out of 5 stars Utterly brilliant TV series Feb. 15 2013
By Sophocles - Published on
Format: DVD
This is an utterly brilliant TV series that I believe has taken Israel by storm. It's very much a 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' for Israeli Arabs, especially for those, like our central character, who suffer a deep crisis of identity. It's about time that the Israel/Palestinian conflict, which is ludicrously self-defeating for both peoples, was treated with irreverence and to outlandish comic effect. Incredibly insightful into the foibles and contradictions of Israeli society, it treats the prejudices of both sides in an honest and unpatronizing way. Representatives of both 'sides' are humanised in ways seldom seen by their Israeli or Palestinian counterparts, several being candidly depicted as being far from saintly. The program uses humor to expose the hypocrisy and bigotry that have bedeviled all reasonable attempts at finding a political solution to this continuing Middle East nightmare. I wholeheartedly recommend it, especially to leaders of Hamas and the Israeli government respectively. Maybe they can all watch it, have a good laugh at themselves, shake hands and divide the land into 2 states asap!
