Ramy is a show about faith, Millennials, New Jersey, friendship, and porn. It’s a show about searching for purpose, identity, and community even as your identity is assigned to you by outsiders, your community may not be a fit for you, and your purpose is constrained by navigating between those two extremes.
It’s hard to be Muslim-American. It got harder on September 11, 2001, the show reminds us, but it was never easy. It’s hard to be a Millenial who cares about faith but who also cares about being in your 20s, and Having Experiences.
