Nia's rambunctious and unique family welcomes her new husband to the fold after the uproarious wedding. Nia may be as surprised as he is, when the people react to every crisis with a wildly eccentric sense of humor and a steadfast refusal to do things like anyone else.
The Portakolos family witnesses the ups and downs of the new relationship, with everything from the couple's honeymoon to the hectic atmosphere around the holidays. Watch her parents overreact to everything; watch her husband not know whether he's coming or going; and relax as it all works out in the end.
This is the rare family comedy that is well-written and not sappy. Too bad it had an abbreviated run. Nia Vardalos, from whose real-life story this series was drawn, is a strong writing talent and I hope to see her work on television again soon.
