System Details:
"Amjad Alian, an Arab-Israeli journalist, and his family and friends return for a second season of this funny, provocative, and popular Israeli sitcom. Created by Sayed Kashua, a 32-year-old Israeli-born Palestinian journalist, Arab Labor offers a fresh perspective on Israeli-Palestinian cultural friction while presenting an unbelievably entertaining show that has made an international splash. About Season 2: One decent shower in a Jewish neighborhood is enough to make Amjad decide to upgrade his and his family's life and move from the Arab village to the wealthy Jewish neighborhood in western Jerusalem. In the new neighborhood, there's a great water flow, the garbage is cleaned 3 times a week, there are marked streets, a machine that cleans them, trees, gardens and best of all- no Arabs. Amjad, an Arab very well aware of his inferior status in the eye of his new neighbors, will do absolutely anything in order to win their affection and possibly get accepted by the average Israeli bourgeoisie. In every episode, he tries and retries to prove he is an inseparable part of his neighbors' life. He goes out of his way to please the neighbors, and, in his attempts, completely neutralizes his identity, culture, and nationality, sometimes at the expense of old ties from the village but at most times at the expense of his family members' mental health as they put up with his suspicious behavior. Poking fun at the cultural divide, Kashua and his characters play on religious, cultural and political differences to daringly depict the mixed society that is Israel. This show marked a milestone on Israeli television as the first program to present Palestinian characters speaking Arabic on primetime"--Distributor's website ( (as viewed on 6/28/2012)).
