Mo is the semi-autobiographical tale of creator and star Mo Amer, whose tricky bouts with immigration, interfaith relationships, and growing up Arab-American all figure in the show. It's a bittersweet series that brings the Palestinian and immigrant experience to the forefront—a tricky act that's dealt with deft ease here. The series may be rife with social, cultural, and political issues, but there's a big and heartfelt message at the center of it, and Amer tells it with genuine warmth and humor without ever being too self-serious and preachy, making Mo a breezy but meaningful watch.
