Insert Mosque Pun Here

Sshhhhh. I'll have to type quietly, because I don't want to disturb the writers next door. "But hasn't season 5 been completely written?" To which I respond: Sshhhhhh.

I hope you guys enjoyed that week's triumphant episode. A few of you on facebook have certainly had positive things to say. Even our resident critic P. Joy Webster found the courage deep within her to come forward with this statement:

After all the negative comments that I made last year, it is my responsibility to write and say that I'm LOVING this season.

P. Joy Webster, to you I say this: Aww, shucks. It weren't nothin'.

Be sure to tune in next week for another good episode, Brother Can You Spare a Mosque? It was written by Andrew Carr of Corner Gas fame and, more importantly, it stars a mattress salesman! Also, I think some other characters are there as well. Like a drifter played by one of the co-executive producers' brother... but before you say anything, he earned that role dammit! Maybe Amaar and Rayyan show up too, I can barely remember. ;)

Smooth Hate Criminal

Hey Mosque-ovites!

I hope you enjoyed the last episode. Thorne and Amaar, Amaar and Thorne--together at last... Sort of. And if that isn't strange enough, things will get even stranger in the next episode. And because we are a Canadian show with a natural tendency towards low self-esteem, we will praise this upcoming episode only because it was written by guy who wrote on The Office. Sure, he's Canadian and a very funny guy and a good father and all-around nice guy, but really who cares! He wrote on The Office!

Actually I care. Anthony Q. Farrell....I care deeply.

Here's the summary: Rayyan urges Amaar to befriend a lonely Rev. Thorne but quickly finds herself shut out when the former frenemies find much in common. Meanwhile, when a mishap at the Mosque is misread as a hate crime, Sarah covers for the Mayor until she has to come clean and mend fences between the Anglicans and the Muslims.

Next Monday at 8!
