    A very noticable difference in the accent.
    However , I do understand what is being said.

      My point exactly. It has no bearing on the natural language of the land.

              Funny stuff
              The Australlian accent throws me off bigtime though
              I had to watch it twice before I got it

                i found acropolis now to be one of the funniest shows on tv during its time in the 80s, but now they are flogging a dead horse and its become stale and oppourtunistic to parody ones culture ll the time.

                  Were there any shows on tv during the 80's that showed your Macedonians' culture or was there no such thing?

                      I don't remember any of the Greeks calling themselves Macedonians in that show if that helps you.
                      After all, it was before the greek mind meld of the 1990's.

                        There was no need to clarify what type of Greeks they were in the 80's.

                          Oh, I see you've forgotten. Back then they used to say Macedonians do not exist.

                          "If you can't beat them, be them" appears to be the Greek mantra.

                              I can't recall them saying that in the show.

                                Is it trash day yet?
                                You want Macedonia? Come and take it from my blood!

                                A prosperous, independent and free Macedonia for Macedonians will be the ultimate revenge to our enemies.
