Life Beyond The Movies

So very disappointed “My Big

So very disappointed
“My Big Fat Greek Wedding” was simply one of the best comedies I’ve seen on the big screen in YEARS. I personally thought it had a shot at taking Best Picture at the Oscars this year. The film is just wonderful, and if you haven’t seen it yet… WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!?! Anyway, last night was the premiere of the TV show “My Big Fat Greek Life” with just about the WHOLE cast from the movie reprising their roles. I was hoping for a repeat performance of the genius from the movie. I was horribly let down. The show was TERRIBLE! The characters were suddenly all 2 dimensional in the worst possible way. Their personalities (except for the father) were completely different, they changed the names of the 2 lead characters, they contradicted several important story points from the film… in other words, the show SUCKED. The writing wasn’t at all witty, and overall it just felt like another bad sit-com. I’ll have to rent the movie again tonight to try to purge the awful television experience.
