Little mosque on the prairie

The CBC has had a great idea with their new television sitcom Little Mosque on the Prairie. It’s about a small Muslim community in, of all place, Saskatchewan that’s trying to start a mosque in a local church’s parish hall.

I haven’t watched it yet, but from what I’ve read, this is exactly the sort of show that should be played in the States, where Muslim actors generally only get to portray terrorists and bad guys.

It looks like it’s on bittorrent and can be downloaded here.

UPDATE: I’ve just watched the show, and it’s pretty cute. It’s really similar to other sitcoms on television, except that there are Muslims, Muslims who are normal people. And to my mind, that is what makes this show so important.

  2. Another great show by the Canadian Broadcast Company I’m sure. Someone needs to throw some money at that network…lame ass Canadians.
