The first season of Ramy was astounding, a look at a Muslim-American millennial's attempt to navigate his religion, cultural identity, and own sexual and spiritual desires and views

The show is more thoughtful than laugh-out-loud funny, but it handles its soul-searching subject matter with a light touch.

Wickedly irreverent.

In general, Ramy is a highly interesting dramedy thematically but in turn is quite insecure and irregular in its execution. [Full review in Spanish]

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.

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.

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.
April 23, 2019
Language, sex in comedy about balancing faith, modern life.

[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.

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.
