Personally, I never quite understood how they could make a sitcom out of a POW camp experience, and how so many people who have gone through the war could watch it. But that is neither here nor there. I am not sure how one could spin Berlusconi's remark this way - especially since he explicitly said,
"In Italy, they are making a movie on Nazi concentration camps," Berlusconi snapped back. "I will propose you for the role of capo," or chief.
I cannot really see a reference to a sitcom that ended its run 22 years ago here. But it is just me, I am sure.
