Don't remember if a Discussion was started about this show, but I began watching it again recently.
It's about the tight-knit wealthy Persian (Iranian) community in the Beverly Hills area, with an epicenter around a bunch of 20- and 30-somethings. The first time I started watching it, I was really turned off by the diva behavior of one of the women (GG), and the general over-the-top focus on money. Now, I'm seeing deeper & more difficult relationships that are compelling .. like Reza's family.
While Reza Farahan's parents are both Persian, his mother is Muslim & his father is Jewish, and his father converted to marry his mother. He & his father were totally cut off from their Jewish family, and it eventually was part of the end of the marriage. It was really touching when Reza reconnected with his Jewish family in Great Neck, NY (almost as $$ as Beverly Hills) recently, and he gets very choked up, whenever he talks about the "disconnect".
Do you watch .. who are your most/least favorite cast members?
