The New Face of Anger… or Joy?
Well, the reviews are in for the first episode of the new season of Little Mosque on the Prairie. The critics seem to like it, and the fans are… mad!! (and you know I don’t use the double exclamation in bold lightly).
We received some good notices and articles in some major dailies:
The Toronto Star
The Calgary Herald
But on-line, another story emerged…
Once the program aired on Monday night, our Facebook page was immediately flooded with comments. Many were demands to bring back Reverend Magee. Someone even suggested an official campaign be started to do just that. I am not sure if anyone has ever successfully done this for a Canadian show, but if you feel that strongly about it, it can’t hurt to try...
Some of the other comments:
“I'm not sure about the new reverend. Don't like him much at this point but I enjoyed the rest of the show”
“From the writers' perspective it makes sense to get rid of Magee to add conflict. I like him, though.”
“ugh. I hate the new reverend”
“I think Rev. Thorne is an interesting addition to Mercy. There will definitely be interesting times ahead for the people of Mercy!”
“I was in stitches within the first FIVE minutes of the episode!”
“I LOVE IT! Welcome back ♥”
Well, we knew that Reverend Thorne would ruffle a few feathers, but that’s a lot of feathers!
What do you think?
