Big Fat Greek Dissapointment
24 February 2003 | by (Mexico City, Mexico) – See all my reviews

I loved the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding, but the TV show was not as good as I expected. I started seeing it but did not finish it, it has 1 or 2 good laughs but the rest of the show literally stinks. First of all, the names change and you get confused. Second of all, the story does not follow the movie. And third, there are no laughs, Ian, or as he is called in the show, Thomas, is a really bad actor, no talent at all, he is also not funny. It seems as they are beging for some funny moments, but they try to hard. I gave it a 2 out of 10.
