The characters discuss the fact that the chemistry between GG (Muslim) and Mike (Jewish), may be doomed because of religious difference, though Mike is currently dating a Latina (presumably a Christian).
But the most fascinating story line for me as a “patrilinial half-Jew” is that of Reza, born to a Muslim mother and a father who converted from Judaism to Islam in order to marry.
I am struggling to come up with another such microcosm of intense Jewish and Muslim friendship on television, or in any other medium.
If you can think of one, please post it in the comment section!
Mike’s family Shabbat was featured on the first episode.
Mike worships his Jewish mom, who urges him to marry a nice, Jewish Persian girl.
What drew me to was the unusual depiction of a close circle of Jewish and Muslim friends.
The show depicts Iranian-American (Persian) singles partying and shopping their way through LA and Las Vegas in the highest of styles.
Critics have focused on ravaging the shallow stereotypes of the Persian community, and decrying the predictable glitz and hyped-up drama of reality shows.
