Ramy: Season 1 Reviews

September 12, 2019
At once entertaining, illuminating and drenched in millennial ennui.
April 29, 2019
The writing is rich and layered, the references are topical...and "Ramy" explores topics and themes that feel quietly revolutionary.

Ramy executes its male narratives with wit and precision. It's unfortunate that, so far, the show fails to demonstrate that Muslim women's stories can be more than a sympathetic canvas of unfulfilled dreams.

[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 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.

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 18, 2019
[Ramy] is another strong yet artfully subtle example of what this emerging genre can accomplish.
April 18, 2019
Ramy thus takes the oldest of premises... and infuses it with situations that give the series life and depth.
April 18, 2019
In terms of the stories it chooses to tell,... Ramy feels like nothing else on TV.

April 17, 2019
Ramy is a comedy, and it's a good one, but its clear priority is to have the jokes emerge from the characters being so carefully drawn, and from the worldview so frankly explored.
April 17, 2019
Ramy is essential viewing, a family TV show about a family that TV's never fully shown, until now.

It's initially a slow burn, but through it all, Ramy consistently subverts and redirects expectations, and doesn't hide from tough contradictions.

One of the biggest strengths of "Ramy" is that, contrary to the narrow focus of the show's title, the show goes out of its way to flesh out other characters beyond Ramy himself.
March 12, 2019
"Ramy" resonates because it treats its characters' lives with the utmost compassion.

Youssef knows exactly how much to ask of himself as an actor and his performance is likable, generous and present, not quite the straight man, but happy to settle back and let his co-stars get the big reactions.
