We review the first season of Neflix’s first ever Palestinian original series, Mo! Co-created by Palestinian American actor and comedian Mo Amer and Ramy Youssef, this outstanding comedy-drama is a semi-autobiographical take on Amer’s own life in Houston.

How does it do well at portraying Palestinians, and Houston and its various people? Why does it have such a perfect balance of comedy and heartbreak? What are the few things we wish were better? We also discuss *everything* that’s been happening recently with Warner Brothers Discovery and HBO Max, give our recommendations, and much more!
