I really enjoy watching the Greek version of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? I never really watched it much in the U.S., I've long since passed my "game show" phase. But the Greek version is entertaining for a couple of reasons: one, I get to practice my Greek and learn new words and two, it reminds me that Greeks have a whole different cultural/entertainment background than Americans. This is made evident by obscure questions about body parts missing on well known Greek statues, ingredients in Greek recipes, and works of modern Greek writers, filmmakers, and artists. A lot of the questions about ancient Greek history I can answer, at least.
Still, it gives me pause when a player who is knocking out questions left and right gets stuck on a question like "where are the Oscars awarded?" The choices were Chicago, Los Angeles, Boston and New York, and the guy was stumped. He had to use his phone call, luckily, his mother knew the answer.
Yes, Greeks couldn't care less about the American entertainment business, and most of them get blindsided by questions about American movies. I guess that is why they put those questions in there. It seems a bit unfair to me, but yea, life isn't fair. Especially game shows.
