Spreading the word

Did you happen to catch Zaib Shaikh on @Katiecouric? Zaib was a part of a Muslim panel she held in response to the amount of feedback she got from her "Muslim Cosby Show" a few weeks back. Quoth Zaib, "I'm no Imam, I just play one on TV." Watch the whole segment:;housing

Next week on Little Mosque: Roomies. A leak in the roof of Amaar's loft sends him scrambling to find another place to live and all roads lead to Thorne much to the Imam's chagrin. Thorne loves having Amaar there and is hurt when he doesn't want to stay. So Thorne sets out to make sure Amaar has no place else to go. Meanwhile, Sarah fights off aging to the point of injury to impress an old friend who stops by Mercy for a visit.

I know. Crazy right?

1/4 Too Short

Greetings from Mercy. I hope everyone enjoyed A Kept Imam, this week's episode that was written by a rockin' young Muslim woman named Sadiya Durrani. She's funny, she's fresh, and she's from Winnipeg! And this week, we've got another episode from a different but equally funny Muslim lady, Little Mosque creator Zarqa Nawaz. (Yes, there is more than one funny Muslim lady! In fact, I like to imagine an army of hijabi comedians, all anxiously writing episodes of the Big Bang Theory in their basement, hoping to break into the tv biz!).

Next Monday's episode is called Loose Lips. In it, Amaar shares a funny, little quirk of Rayyan's as a way to show a congregant that all couples disagree about some things. But Rayyan is not amused to discover Amaar has been talking about her and bans him from saying anything else. Meanwhile, Sarah convinces Baber to pose as her boss in an attempt to land a conservative Muslim as a client for Hamoudi Construction.

Hilarity ensues. Please join us Monday January 24th at 8:00 PM on CBC.

Greetings from Mercy

Hello all, and greetings form Mercy. Two episodes into the new season. Amaar and Rayyan are aboard the express train, destination marriage! Let's hope the journey is swift and smooth. But don't count on it. This is television after all! Also, that pesky Reverend Thorne, much maligned after his move to Mercy last year, seems to be... GASP... softening? Could it be that all of that fresh country air and viewer backlash is affecting his character? NAH!

More answers to be found in next week's episode, "Bromancing the Imam." Check it out on Monday, January 17th at 8:00 PM on CBC.

Also, follow @LittleMosque on Twitter. Where you can hear about the kinds of bagels Revered Thorne eats. This is important stuff people!!

The Muslim Cosby Show

Hey, they're engaged! Who saw that coming? Especially from an episode called The Proposal? Not me, that's for sure! And I read the script too. And saw them shoot the proposal scene. Still... shocking! Coming next Monday on Little Mosque is an episode called The Angry Separation. No, not really. It is in fact entitled Bromancing the Imam. It's full of engagement hijinks between Rayyan and Amaar, and Reverend Thorne starting along a new path to being... better-er. Hint: it's an uphill battle!

In other news this week. Katie Couric tells her viewers that America needs "a Muslim Cosby show". Ummm, hello? We're right up here? Katie! Yoo hoo! Oh well. Maybe she won't listen to us, but surely she will listen to Fox News making the case. It feels odd to be mentioned on Fox News without all sorts of hateful commentary. Luckily, that came from the comments section on the article!

Little Mosque on the Prairie. Monday at 8PM on CBC! Watch it. Cause the Hockey World Juniors are over!
