Fun to Watch - and unduly lambasted by viewers !!
29 August 2004 | by nicholas.rhodesSee all my reviews

I saw the original film My Big Fat Greek wedding and thoroughly enjoyed it. I love the subject of culture shock and had a whale of a time. Then I learned from a friend in the USA that they had made a TV series based on the film. I read about it on imdb and the were a lot of very negative comments about this tv series. No matter, I

thought, I will pursue and buy the dvd which I promptly did. And in truth, I certainly don't regret my purchase.

Of course the novelty of the film has worn off by the time we get to look at the series but I found it very pleasant and amusing to watch. Of course I have some minor criticisms, why did they change her name from Toula to Nia, and why wasn't her husband ( the non-greek ) the same man as in the original film. But apart from that, I watched thru the seven episodes of the dvd with a great amount of pleasure and don't understand all these negative criticisms. The actors themselves are an adorable bunch of people and I just love their accents. That alone makes it fun to watch but the plots of each series aren't too bad at all ( of course they're not masterpieces ) but I feel I'll often be putting on this dvd when I need a programme to cheer myself up. So I am giving what I hope to be a very positive review of this series which I think, in addition, will age well in the coming years !
