Little Mosque On The Prairie

Thursday night, the Daily Show featured a piece about how we need a Qu'osby Show, an Islamic version of the Cosby Show, to show that Muslims are people too, that the think, they feel, and that if we cut them, they do indeed bleed.
I was struck by two things about the piece: first that there was no mention of The Merchant Of Venice, and the speech to which I allude above: and second, that the brilliant Canadian show from a few years ago, Little Mosque On The Prairie, was not on the radar.

Unfortunately, when I checked on Netflix a little later, I discovered that it's not available.  A pity.  The show was very funny, and exactly what the Daily Show was looking for.

Yours, in tolerance,
