There's a push and pull to power dynamics and Ramy captures that nuance with heart, humour and intelligence. This is confident and commanding television.
September 12, 2019
At once entertaining, illuminating and drenched in millennial ennui.

Ramy is an unexpected treat that leads viewers into uncharted territory, all while showcasing diverse talent while never missing a comedic beat.

Youssef unerringly captures what it's like to grow up as an Arab Muslim in America. Impressively, he does so while providing a multitude of entry points for other communities....

By turns thoughtful and didactic, the Hulu show is steeped in tensions that you almost never see on TV.

I ended Ramy wanting more. Thankfully, having just been picked up for a second season, that's exactly what we'll get.

The writing is rich and layered, the references are topical...and "Ramy" explores topics and themes that feel quietly revolutionary.

The series derives its soulfulness from the myths that Ramy, his family, and his friends tell themselves and those around them.

Language, sex in comedy about balancing faith, modern life.

April 22, 2019
[Ramy] leaves nothing to fear, only a desire to convert curiosity into understanding and perhaps, at the end of the season, something like love.
April 22, 2019
Ramy's point of view is unique, but the subject matter isn't. That's what makes it, and Ramy Youssef, such a compelling watch.
April 21, 2019
It's a show about being a Muslim-American in which both of those words are given equal weight. And that makes all the difference.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
April 21, 2019
Ramy takes a couple of episode to smooth out its narrative but the wait pays off in big ways.
April 21, 2019
Ramy finds its shades of cynicism and defeat in other characters-and those explorations add brilliant and welcome depth to his journey.
April 21, 2019
Ramy is a dramedy that shows both a very different and a very familiar America.
April 21, 2019
Part of what makes Ramy work so well is that it's rooted in intensely personal experiences for Ramy.

One of the best new comedies of 2019 so far, and bonus points for also being one of the most interesting and different, too.

Ramy is proof why better representation makes for better TV. It can tell deeper stories because no character has to stand in for an entire culture.
April 19, 2019
Ramy is at its best when the Muslim experience and the millennial experience intersect.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
April 18, 2019
It's a portrait of an American Muslim family never before seen in a sitcom, because these kinds of characters are never allowed to be this complicated.
Full Review | Original Score: 90/100
