CIT­I­ZEN KHAN

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

The BBC’s first Mus­lim sit­com at­tracted plenty of out­rage when it aired in the UK. View­ers were up­set by what they saw as a lack of re­spect for re­li­gion and fam­ily. They should also have com­plained that it wasn’t that funny. Billed as a mul­ti­cul­tural warm, satir­i­cal com­edy, it is a one-joke show in which dad and self-ap­pointed com­mu­nity leader Mr Khan (Adil Ray) is ridiculed be­hind his back by his wife and chil­dren, friends and the man­ager at the lo­cal mosque (Kris Mar­shall.) The most clever piece of writ­ing in the se­ries is the ti­tle. ★✩ Ex­tras: None
