Critic Reviews for Ramy Season 2

All Critics (28) | Top Critics (14)

RAMY brings a new perspective to the screen as it explores the challenges of what it's like being caught between a Muslim community that thinks life is a moral test and a millennial generation that thinks life has no consequences.

Jun 23, 2020 | Full Review…

With a formidable mix of surrealism and humor, Youssef explores the complexities of being a religious millennial man.

Jun 11, 2020 | Full Review…

It's a smarter, better show for being so hard on Ramy, in part because it knows him well enough to not let the whole story rest on one young millennial's shoulders.

When the laughs do come, they're highly rewarding. The most engaging aspect of Ramy, though is that simple, dogged question: how to be yourself, how to be modern, and still be a person of faith.

Jun 22, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Through Ramy's increased devotion, viewers get a broader understanding of Islam's tenets of peace and self-awareness, in addition to Youssef's brand of humor, which still illuminates the difficulties of being Muslim in American culture.

Jun 17, 2020 | Full Review…

Well-drawn supporting characters with sharp tongues help lighten the mood, and Hiam Abbass is hilarious as Ramy's daggy mother.

Jun 11, 2020 | Full Review…

Season 2 of Ramy Youssef's Hulu dramedy is just as life-affirming, poignant, and funny as the first-only now it features one of the best actors on the planet...

Jun 12, 2020 | Full Review…

Ramy presents us with an exceedingly flawed protagonist. The show doesn't want to make him an example, and we not only see the beautiful aspects of his experiences but also the ridiculous ones.

Jun 12, 2020 | Full Review…

Throughout the 30-minute format provides enough time to get the story told without lollygagging..."Ramy" will jump from one scene to the next almost before you can get the laugh out. Yet it rarely seems hurried.

Jun 11, 2020 | Full Review…

Both depsite and because of uncomfortable moments like that, it's a joy to watch Ramy find his place in the world.

Jun 1, 2020 | Full Review…

If there's a new release this week, or maybe even just this year, that has its finger on the pulse of the fear that again boiled over into anger, it's Ramy.

May 29, 2020 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

The result is a tremendous show that is heartbreaking, uncomfortable, and wickedly funny.

    Absolutely loved it, what a fresh and unique new voice

    An entertaining comedy with so much heart.

    Almost one layer comedy but not as smart as the first.

    I liked the second season but not as much as Season 1. Ramy is known for being unique because it is a comedy about a Muslim-American family and Ramy, the main character, wrestling with his desire to to be a good Muslim. While it may be true that we rarely see American-Muslim characters in television comedies, I actually think it has become rare to show people wrestling with deep issues of faith anymore on television at all. Ramy is very much about the main characters spiritual journey and wanting to be true to his religion, but he constantly seems unable to refrain from sex and is often impulsive in general. There is an episode about a gay, Muslim character on the show that I thought was outstanding. It helped us understand the deep shame some men of an older generation and from religious communities still experience about their sexuality and how it impacts who they become as people. The one thing that bothered me about Season 2 is that I thought Ramy's relationship with one of the other main characters, a women who he marries, is under-developed and I especially thought the actions of his fiance and bride were not believable. I never believed they fell in love with each other at all or even was convinced that they thought their feelings were deep enough to marry. I also had trouble the way his relationship with his female cousin was underdeveloped and I thought her character's action just did not feel believable to me either. I think he needs to work on the development of his female characters more, especially his romantic partners. But I still really like and recommend this show. There were times in both Season One and Season Two that I thought the show was poetic in a way that we rarely see in television, and I hope there is a Season 3.

    The first season was brilliant, moving, and often unexpectedly hilarious. This second season has been a huge letdown. While it still has highlights. by and large it's a lazy, clumsily-written rehash of the first season's "greatest hits." This show always had a lot to say, but it almost always managed to say it in a subtle, quietly intriguing way; this season just telegraphs whatever you're supposed to think about issue X, Y, or Z, and it's much less effective. Perhaps most surprisingly - this season is way less funny! I'm surprised to see so many glowing reviews, there has been a tremendous drop in quality.

    Heartfelt, dark, and outstanding.

    Ramy is so close to my heart cause it really portray our lives, young Muslims end of 20s from Arabic origins living in the west. Trying to stick to our religion and culture while emerging in western life with all its pros and cons. It is really twisted and dramatic with high complexity this season. I thank Ramy Youssef for such spectacular masterpiece.
  • Jun 01, 2020
    An amazing look into another world for me. My eyes were really opened to some things I didn't know and my heart is crying for more. This is really a great show.

    Second season lived up to the first one. One of the best observational comedy shows out there. Thought provoking, smart, hilarious, and with great insights into the struggle of first generation Muslim Americans.
  • May 31, 2020
    Finished in 24 hours. It was hard not to. The first couple of episodes were all over the place but it takes off and hones in on some of the characters in the show. As an Arab Muslim living in America, Ramy exposed a lot of suppressed taboos, which was very profound. I watched it with my non-muslim/non-arab friend and i was able to explain any minor details of our culture along the way. Despite our differences, she was able to relate to the characters and was certainly touched and moved by the story line. Definitely recommend this show, especially to the Arab parents out there! Finally, the sheikh was my absolute favorite. His character was inspiring and authentic from beginning to end. Oh and Boomer, the dog!!!!! Well done!!!!!
