Just remembered, 'Are You Being Served?' with one of the gentlemen dressing as a "GreeK" Archbishop for a fake wedding.
Didn't see that one. I don't like that show very much except for Mr Humphries and even he in a black-humour way is part of the dreariness, the class hatred and 'hanging on in quiet desperation' of the show - in short, reflecting unpleasant and true aspects of real life in England.
I love this show, and when I saw this episode I was ROLLING. Mrs. Slokum (sp?) was supposed to get married to a Greek gentleman, who left her. Rather than let her face embarassment in front of her family and friends, the rest of the cast threw a fake wedding. I didn't find it offensive, the old man obviously had no idea what he was doing, somehow involving salt & pepper shakers and intoning "Arystotle, Olympus...."
Also, 'Friends', they needed a minister for a wedding and they dragged in an Orthodox priest, only to be shoved aside by Joey a minister of some group.
I saw that and it wasn't that bad - he seemed vested properly and the ruse was they claimed Chandler, Monica or both were Greek. Detail alert: the sign in front of the reception hall for the Greek wedding had 'Anastassakis' as one of the family names on it, and I think that might be Jennifer Aniston's real or least historical family name.
Ania: I saw it too, it wasn't so bad.
