“Tash ma Tash” (meaning “No Big Deal”) is the name of a very popular TV comedy show which runs exclusively during Ramadan in Saudi Arabia. It is shown right after Iftar, the meal at sundown when the fast is broken. It has been on the air since 1993. The show has historically poked fun at Saudi society and culture and has tackled some controversial subject matter, and it has not gone without its critics. Sometimes the show will really hit sensitive nerves and cause an uproar, yet the show continues to gain in popularity and ratings. Even though I don’t understand Arabic and there are no English subtitles, I can often figure out what’s going on just by watching.
About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby and teenage son. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
Please be sure to also visit my other blog, SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE, which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
