Stath Lets Flats

Just randomly found this on HBO Max and it is hilarious!. It's about a British-Cypriot manchild who works for his Greek father's real estate business and he is a catastrophe. The lead, Jamie Demetriou is a handsome clown. His real life sister Natasia Demetriou (the female vampire on FX's What We Do In The Shadows) plays his sibling in this and she is also very funny. How does this show fair in the UK? It's one of the better Britcoms I've seen in awhile.

I tried watching this a few years ago and it didn't take. Now that I know that she is his sister I'll give it another try. I love What We Do in the Shadows.

I almost stopped watching after the first episode but it grew on me. The sister plays a meeker character in this show but she has some hilarious bits. There's a dancing routine she does that had me in stitches.

Who cares? The population has to pay us for a license whether they watch it or not.

Jamie Demetriou needs to take out his (probably) uncut cock. He probably has a thick bush, too.

I love that he chose the title because it's so incredibly hard to say.

Same here because I can't take cringe humor. But I do like Demetriou. Glad he won the BAFTA TV.

I gave up after one episode too because his character was such a buffoon. I’ll have to give it another chance. Had no idea they were siblings!

I watched the first episode last night. The scene with the pigeon was funny, but overall it was uneven. I'll try some more, though, based on the recs in this thread.

Fox, by the way, is doing a US remake called [italic]Bren Rents[/italic] with Demetriou as co-executive producer.

So racist!! Only 30% of Greek men are this dopey!

by Anonymousreply 10March 12, 2021 10:23 PM

Bren Rents could actually work on FX/FXX, probably paired to It's Always Sunny or What We Do in the Shadows. FX has been floundering with comedies since the Louis CK debacle and needs at least a few more shows on its slate. Plus a few of their top comedies have ended over the past few years and who knows when Atlanta is coming back because filming on that doesn't even start until March.

I am rooting for them though. It's far and away my favorite network.

I wonder where they'll set it in the US?

Was he the buck toothed guy on Fleabag?

The same.

by Anonymousreply 14March 14, 2021 3:21 AM

Is he gay? It seems as if all the men of Fleabag are.

by Anonymousreply 15March 14, 2021 4:57 AM

First episode was shaky, but the second with the "garden" flat was hilarious and enough to keep me interested.

Not available where I live, but will watch for it.

He was in Sally4Ever with Julia Davis. Almost unrecognizable because he didn't play a buffoon.

by Anonymousreply 18March 19, 2021 11:33 AM

Sally4Ever was the worst piece of shit HBO ever aired. Literally. The scene where some guy shits on the face of the desperate main female character was nausea inducing.

by Anonymousreply 19September 10, 2021 9:31 AM

I don't want to spend time with that character. The actor is quite the dish, however.

by Anonymousreply 20September 10, 2021 10:10 AM

Natasia Demetriou's character is really understated and annoying in this. I love that she's a bulldozer on WWDIS.

He was Bus Rodent (with hideous teeth) on Fleabag.

I tried getting into this series, but the main character is super annoying. Talk about 'cringe'!

Natasia Demetriou's character is dull in this, she's much better on What We Do in the Shadows. Her doll on WWDITS is hilarious.

George on "Great British Bake-Off" is also a Greek Cypriot. Are they prevalent in the UK?
