  1. Yey! Thanks, I miss my weekly fix of mercy…

    I loved this episode, I’ve wondered about Amaar’s family and Baber’s ex-wife and now we can all place faces to names. This episode opens up all sorts of opportunities for fun story lines with new characters. Loved the Bollywood segment, and the Mayor was a hoot.

  3. Episode 12 is Online 🙂 FULL

  4. I loved this episode, it was fun and I agree, with Kay, gave us more insight into the characters.

    I like the fact that you’ve posted it on the Islamic New Year! I wish for a blessed and properouse year for all. Ameen.

    Actually, shouldn’t a liberal Imam actually allow New Year’s Eve celebrations? There’s been enough imams doing that… but not to be superbly critical

    The bollywood segment was so hilarious I was almost falling off my chair

    I would have also expected Amaar to be all for New Years. But the episode was wonderful! I always wanted to see who Amaar’s parents and Baber’s wife was. =) And it was very funny as usual!

    Five years ago was December 31, 2002.

    Why do I state this very obvious fact?

    Well because I don’t think it would have taken Baber spilling coffee on Fred for Fred to decide what his position regarding Muslims was.

    Oh my god!! Amaar Rashid had more than 2 lines!!

    That was hilarious and Baber just keeps them coming. I love the bollywood thing but the best part was when Baber apologises to the cab driver for calling him handsome but nothing for calling him an infidel.
