Little Mosque on the Prairie: Season 3

I know it's been quite a while since I last talked about Little Mosque on the Prairie, so I'm going to make up for that.

Three seasons after it aired, Little Mosque on the Prairie is still one of my favorite shows and the only sitcom I watch. That should be telling.

What I've grown to love about this Canadian show is not only that it is both funny and smart, but the depth and breath of the characters. While most series are happy to remain stagnant in story, theme and characterization, Little Mosque moves forwards with story arcs and develops the characters. I commend the shows creators for doing this. It's easy to stop working when you have a successful product.

With season three wrapping up, the show has certainly become more than a run of the mill sitcom. It's evolved into a comedic drama with characters that you become attached to.

The CBC has certainly evolved also. If you're lucky enough to live in Canada, the CBC is now streaming season three as it airs on their site so no need to worry if you miss an episode.

Now without trying to get all preachy liberal on you. Little Mosque is probably the most exposure some people have ever had to Muslims other than the news (which is rarely positive). The humor and characters of this show might open some people to being a little more accepting. Like Star Trek in the 1960's breaking barriers and portraying visible minorities in leading roles, Little Mosque on the Prairie does the same now.
