My Big Fat Greek Life Sitcom

The sitcom version of the hit movie is coming to your television soon.. are you planning to watch it?

John Corbett is not part of the cast, ladies..


Not to be a party pooper, but I didn't think the movie was all that.. but I'd like to know your thoughts on the new sitcom.

Normal

I have yet to see the movie.

Do you guys think the sitcom is a good idea? It usually ruins everything.

I have not decided yet after seeing the moive. I don't think it will be that great. Usually when a tv show is a spin off from a movie, it does not do that well. I could be wrong, but that is my opinion.

I LOVED the movie, but I think the sitcom is a bad, bad, BAD idea.

I liked the movie, but think the sitcom will be stupid. It's a one-trick pony, IMO.

I just really hope the writers of the show don't sink into what might be perceived as "ethnic stereotyping" for a show of this nature - and highlighting what it does about her background.

We'll see I guess

I really liked the movie but I don't generally take time out to watch tv. I might tune into it just to see what it's all about but I don't plan on watching it.

I loved the movie (saw it twice), but I'm kind of neutral on the idea of a sitcom. I doubt that it will be terrible, especially since most of the original cast will be in the sitcom, but I'm irritated that they renamed Ian (he's Thomas now - what the hell?), changed Toula to Nia, AND there isn't any kid. Is it really that hard to pronounce Ian? Or work a kid into the plot?

Well, I'll be watching it anyway. I hope it's good.

I loved the movie but don't plan to watch the TV show. I just don't think it will be any good, especially without John Corbett

I really liked the movie, but I doubt a sitcom will work. We'll just have to wait and see, I guess.

Add me to the list of "I liked the movie but don't think the sitcom will work."

Movie=great

sitcom=???? I might watch to see what they are doing but I really doubt it will take off. Who knows maybe they beat the statistics and it actually works.

I haven't seen the movie. But generally I don't like sitcoms.
