The first episode, "The House Gift" is a great reintroduction to the characters. Yes, Toula is now Nia, and Ian is now Thomas. I was able to get over that fact with little pain, so I don't see the big deal for some who cannot seem to live with the new names, or the fact that Thomas is played by a different actor. It's a TV show, not real life, and these are actors. Things change. Get over it and enjoy the show.
#2 - The Empire Strikes Back - Nick is hilarious in this episode, and Voula is great. (In fact, she is the best and most funny character in this series.) Gus and Maria are preparing a will to see who will inherit the "empire" (restaurant and house). Nia inherits the restaurant, and she is none to happy about the aspect of being just like her father. Watch this one just to see the scene with Voula, Nia and Nick as the women try to approach the subject of who will get the restaurant to Nick.
#3 - The Free Lunch - man does this one seem to get the criticism! This one is funny too, not a classic, but it is funny, which is what this show is about.Read more ›
Whereas the 2002 film had been expertly written and successfully drew the audience into its tale of self-discovery and love for its main character, 'Tula' Portokalos, the TV series instead focused primarily on jokes and less engaging, often predictable plot lines. My rating for each of the seven episodes, as well as each episode's air date, are as follows:
1. "The House Gift" (3, 2/24/2003). After returning from their honeymoon, Nia and Thomas are surprised to learn that Gus and Maria have purchased them a new house.
2. "The Empire Strikes Back" (3.5, 3/3/2003).Read more ›
When CBS said they were going to do a weekly TV series based on WEDDING, I was thrilled and delighted!
That was the GOOD news, now the BAD news..This short lived seven episode series died a quick network death (THANK GOD). The series had so much potenial as a series. It could have been another M*A*S*H (A TV show that also started as a film) if the writing was good and kept slightly to the movie story line...IT DIDN'T and the show failed quickly!
I would have liked Nia to talk less and use more facial expressions as she did in the film. She kept running her mouth, a motor mouth..as she was very shy in the film.
This sitcom could have had more bite as a family comedy, it copied everyone else's sitcom styles and not its uniqueness which it had. Most of the supporting characters were very under used, acting as if they were part of the furniture.
On DVD, they could have given the DVD patrons a treat such as an audio commentary, promos, features, etc..alas no extras on can be found on this dvd disk..at least they couldn't give us something.
Ah, if wishes for a good show was something that could happen
