Watching last week's premiere episode of the new TLC reality series "All-American Muslim," I couldn't help noticing that virtually every member of the show's large ensemble introduced themselves by explaining why he or she might not be considered a "typical Muslim." There was Nina, who styled herself as if she was auditioning to be on "The Real Housewives of Dearborn, Michigan." There was tattooed, heavily-pierced Shadia, who explained that while she studied the Koran, "Do I choose to follow all of that? Not so much." Even a relatively traditional couple like expectant parents Nader and Nawal made a big show of explaining that their marriage is much more of an equal partnership than most of the Muslim-American couples they know.

I'll get to the rest of the Wednesday comedies I watched in a little bit, but I'm enjoying "Happy Endings" so much these days that I feel it deserves its own space when I have the time to do so. A review of last night's episode coming up just as soon as I demonstrate that I'm no stranger to the three-hole punch...
The show goes 3 out of 4 with its stories, but the 4th is a doozy
