Classic 80's Australian comedy about the workers of a small Greek restaurant in Melbourne called the "Acropolis Now". This show will crack you up if you understand the lingo used. The story begins when Jim's father leaves to go to Greece after living in Australia for 23 years. When his father leaves, he turns his dad's restaurant into a modern day meeting place for wogs. If you loved The Wog Boy (1999), you'll love "Acropolis Now".
