I just saw the movie today. I didn't think it was that great...mayhaps it was so overhyped that I was expecting better. There were some cute/funny moments, but overall, I don't know if I'd ever bother watching it again. As for the sitcom...it won't be something I'll make a point of watching.

I loved the movie! And I plan to watch the sitcom on Monday to see how it is...I'm keeping my mind open until then...

I just don't really watch television at all--especially now that Joe Millionaire is over--although I bought the My Big Fat Greek Wedding DVD the other day.

I don't think the sitcom's going to work, though. One of the driving forces behind the movie was Toula's transformation from "frump girl" into this fun, outgoing person that could snag a guy like Ian--and of course that won't be in the show.

I don't think the sitcom is a good idea either. I'm going to watch it just to see if it's any good, but I doubt it..(I'll be at work so I'll have to record it). I think it kinda ruins the movie, which I thought was good.

Remember back when the movie was released and how popular it became, and the big thing was that it became so popular without a lot of advertising, just by word of mouth, and it was a low budget movie, etc? When I first heard about the sitcom, i dunno, it was kind of a let down, kinda like they sold out or something

I'm trying to be optimistic, but I don't know...as someone else said, the track record for movies to sitcoms isn't so great...but this could be another MASH. You never know...

Except no John Corbit (sp?). That sucks!

I just might watch it while I am waiting for Joe Millionare to come on. Nothing else is good to watch.

It was okay....But I honestly don't see it lasting. The curse of the movie to sitcom...

and I probably won't get to watch it much anyway because they're moving it to Sundays at 8, when American Dreams is on!
