I thought that half an hour at my computer would be enough to fortify me for another ten-minute stretch. But nooooooo.

I get in front of the TV and what do I see? The homely daughter of Mr. Greek, on whom everyone's given up ever getting married to a nice Greek boy, has brought her WASP boyfriend to the big Greek party. And the really unpredictable part is, he's VEGETARIAN and all the dishes are MEAT! Oh, the conflict!

Andrea Martin dreadfully plays some Greek caricature in a way that should have elicited protests from the Greek-American community. If she played a black person in like fashion, she'd never work again.

The SNL cheeseburger sketches portrayed Greeks more sympathetically, and I don't know if they were even supposed to be Greeks.
