Η Γενιά των 592 Ευρώ” (which loosely translates to Generation 592€) is a sociological comedy that examines the lives of underemployed and unemployed twenty-somethings living in Greece under the austerity measures. Generation 592€ is the colloquial term given to educated, twenty-something Greeks who earn only the minimum wage of 592€ a month. It has since been canceled, for lack of an available budget, but it’s nice to see a show that deals with this staggering social problem without resorting to Two Broke Girls stereotyping and nonsense.
Only one Christmas tradition has endured between my brother and I, and that’s watching the Space Ghost Coast to Coast Christmas special every Christmas Eve. It started back in 1995, because Turner made a habit of unscrambling their C-band (never mind) Cartoon Network feed every Christmas Eve until they finally digitized and later moved their feed to KU-band (again, never mind). However, every Christmas Eve Cartoon Network would repeat the Space Ghost Special, and we’d clamour to the television in the basement to watch it. However, since it’s illegal for Canadians to subscribe to Cartoon Network, and I doubt that they air it every Christmas Eve anymore, we pulled our CD-R back-up and watch it.
