What’s on TV Saturday: ‘Ramy’ and ‘The High Note’


RAMY Stream on Hulu. This dramedy series made a splash when it debuted last year for putting the experiences of American Muslims front and center. Created by the comedian Ramy Youssef, who also stars as the title character, the show follows an Egyptian-American millennial in New Jersey torn by hedonistic pleasures and his desire to reconnect with his faith. Existential questions are still swirling through Ramy’s mind in Season 2, but he’s now unpacking them with help of a spiritual mentor (newcomer Mahershala Ali). We learn more about Ramy’s family and watch as he navigates sticky situations that test his faith. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Youssef suggested that this season may spark “uncomfortable conversations” among critical viewers — for one, the trailer reveals a scene featuring a former adult film star — but it also offers a more intimate look at his character’s spiritual motivations.
