The series received mixed reviews, primarily due to its humor, cliches, prejudices, and the fact that an Afghani character is played by an Indo-South African actor with a fake accent. However, the series also received high praise for its attempts to diversify television, and the pilot episode received a nomination for Outstanding Production Design for a Narrative Program.
