This made me laugh.

By the end it appeared as if the influence of the liberal agnostic lady on the Muslim family caused the Muslim daughters to be more rebellious, whilst the legacy of the Muslim mum on the other family made them more closer.

You could tell the Muslim mum was not happy about this in the end.

It does beg the question. Is liberalisation a destructive force for more strict religious families? In terms of Edward Said's model of othering, it looks like certain conservative Muslim families have 'othered' the western liberal setup as decadent, salacious and evil. I think this may also be a truth with many other conservative religious groups, even white Christian ones.

Can these positions exist together without one side attacking the other? Are they locked in combat?

I think this particular program was genuine. Both sides wanted to try and present themselves in their best light to the public. The western family as progressive and tolerant, the Muslim family as adherent and pious to the faith.

But otherwise, I would agree that reality tv in general is a load of mindnumbing sh1te (like Big Brother). However I must confess that I did enjoy the recent The Family show with the Grewals.
