Storyline

Eleni and Konstadinos are two totally different people who are forced to live under the same roof, because they are in the middle of the proceedings of a trial, regarding the ownership of the house. Konstadinos is a strict university professor, while Eleni is a crazy girl who works at a bar. Their different characters put them in constant conflict, but does this mean that they really hate each other? Written by Chris Makrozahopoulos <makzax@hotmail.com>

Trivia

The title of the series is a reference to the "Feast of the Holy Great Sovereigns Constantine and Helena, Equal to the Apostles" (21 May), a feast of the Orthodox Christian Church. It commemorates two saints: Roman Emperor Constantine the Great (reigned 306-337) and Elena, his mother and Augusta during his reign. They are typically commemorated together. "Konstantinos" is the Greek form of the name "Constantine", and Eleni the Greek form of the names "Helen"/"Helena". See more »

The hilarious and yet useful contrast
5 April 2010 | by teiher2See all my reviews

This is so much more than just the typical sitcom series : A comedy about the continuous battle between the old and the new ideas.

Apart from the lack of any character development through the series, which is typical for this kind of comedy, this series makes some powerful statements about today's Greece, using a very smart sense of humor : On one hand the old ideas and tradition, represented by Konstadinos, the professor and Matina, next door neighbor, versus the new way of living in todays Greece, represented by Helen, the waitress and Manthos, the spoiled son of a wealthy entrepreneur.

The lesson to be learned is that the different issues that arise, will sometimes be solved easier with traditional methods, some other times with unconventional ideas, but most of the times it takes a combination of both to make things work.

The end of the series, the rule of opposites attraction, is the natural happy end that every viewer was hoping for from the first episode.
