Critic Reviews for Ramy Season 1

All Critics (32) | Top Critics (16)

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 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.

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

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....

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…

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

Audience Reviews for Ramy: Season 1

Great show the accurately depicts the Arab-American experience!

This show is so relateable for muslim growing up in America/Western countries who are struggling to find a balance between their two identities/cultural backgrounds when it comes to Islam.

balancing faith and modern life.

Rewarding, neat and full of funny moments. The way it portraits the struggles of the young Muslim generations -those of migrant parents or those of the post-revolution era of Egypt- is so clever and deeply understanding. A must watch, even for those who do not relate to the community. I loved every bit of it

Just watched this back to back. Some very real issues faced by Muslims growing up in the West today, which made me question my own judgements. Hanging for series two.

Most relatable thing I've ever seen. Very authentic.

Los primeros capítulos son entretenidos pero desde el cuarto al décimo se pone tonta, obvia y monótona. Quizá por ser latino no le veo mucha gracia, ya que vivimos muchos problemas similares tercermundistas. Además, me pareció estar viendo una versión adaptada de "Master of None" del indio Aziz Ansari, la misma cosa pero en vez de raíces indias ahora raíces egipcias.

An all-around outstanding first season for Ramy, thats quality is confidently matched with insightfulness. Regarding the modern day trials-and-tribulations of a first-generation Muslim, the show has a more universal outlook to it than other recent shows that focused on specific ethnic groups (i.e. Master of None, Insecure) in that its characters are in far less gentrified conditions. Ramy's problems will strike a tone with anyone trying to find themself in the balance of millennial culture and familial background, and speaking of family, the show is anything but solipsistic. Perhaps taking a page from Junot Diaz' brilliant novel The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, Ramy's title character isn't always the protagonist in his own show, as at least two of the ten episodes focus on his family members instead, and the results greatly expand its world and thematic weight. Progressive in other ways too (such as casting an actor with muscular dystrophy) and presented with immaculate style and nuance, Ramy is just the latest triumph from A24, one of the past decade's most reliable studios for top-notch art and indie productions, and it will almost certainly go down as the year's best (and most important) new series.

all I have to say is what an amazing show.

amazing look at American Muslim Millenials!
