Critic Reviews for Ramy Season 1

All Critics (34) | Top Critics (17)

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.

Sep 13, 2019 | Full Review…

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

Apr 29, 2019 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

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.

Apr 25, 2019 | Full Review…

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.

Apr 17, 2019 | Full Review…

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

Top Critic

"Ramy" resonates because it treats its characters' lives with the utmost compassion.

Top Critic

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

May 24, 2019 | Full Review…

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....

May 20, 2019 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

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

May 13, 2019 | Full Review…

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

May 2, 2019 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

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

Apr 23, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

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.

    I have to say, that this is one of the best new comedies I have watched in a long time. Funny, sometimes sad, insightful and sometimes very moving. I am looking forward to season two and Witnessing the further growth of Ramy, the main character

    love it , culture shocks for new raised generations been asked to answer questions they don't have an idea about, a take on a very chill note

    PERFECT Storytelling of the American Muslim experience! Great writing! Funny Islamic inside jokes!
  • Sep 01, 2019
    I would call this show, "A documentary on Hilarious Muslim stereotypes", exploring topics like: Generation gap in Muslims, Muslim-Jews in today's USA, Especially exploring Muslim women sexual life & their frustrations (3 whole episodes on that - not-so-insightful though), 9/11 (a glimpse into it while being sensitive to USA audience), & then Exploring roots in native country (another amateur attempt). Not exceptional but still a good watch and sets a good base for second season if it actually improves.

    The most relevant comedy series since Master of None.
  • Aug 11, 2019
    this show is wonderful, informative, funny, well shot, well written, etc. I could talk about it forever. absolutely loved it and highly recommend
  • Aug 03, 2019
    This is such a GREAT TV SHOW, I literally finished it today, I started it today, finished today! Let me go to the best points which I loveed so much about this show. 1. This just touched me sooo much from the bottom of my heart I say that. 2. every case you discussed in the show is so true and so clear, I literally feel every situation and lived every case. What I would really love more about this, that you need to give like solutions, how can we fix this? how can we stop thinking only about sex? for men and women. How can we find our selves, I know that this is so hard, but this is such a Great tv show so it has to be the greatest. There are a lot of messages and cases in that show but I can't speak about all of them. All thanks go to all of the crew, everyone who helped to execute this beautiful work so I can watch it here.

    Not representative of the type of life that Muslims in North America live even though it it is meant to be
  • Jul 20, 2019
    Ramy is the STRUGGLE. It offers a new glimpse into the life of many Muslim youth, not only in the U.S, rather in any society in which Muslims are a minority and are observed as strict religious people.There's a lot of laughs, but also a lot of sad moments, because the're so true.Almost all of the female Muslim characters were portrayed as sexually frustrated horny cheating women, I mean, I get it. It's all for the laughs, but still, it was a bit too much,All in all, it's a very good show, with some tweaking issues.I'm definitely waiting for season two.
