Best comedy i've ever seen...
10 March 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Jim's father leaves Australia to go to Greece, so he leaves his café to the immature and irresponsible Jim. Memo is the waiter and Ricky handles the money. Liz is a waitress and Skip is a cook. The story lines are original, but my favourites have to be the episode where they have the Shakespeare play at the café, the episode where Memo becomes a Greek Orthodox Priest and the episode where Jim hosts a Mrs. Acropolis. They got the name Acropolis Now from Apocalypse Now, but not many people seemed to have gotten the joke. I have seen this show so many times, and each time I do I can't stop laughing. This series is over 15 years old, but the jokes never seem to age. This is comedy at its best. Russel Crowe has actually appeared in one of the episodes, a long with many other well known actors/actresses. If you're after a comedy, this one will not disappoint you.
