Details!

You don't honestly expect 99% of Moviegoers to even know about that sort of fact, let alone give a shit?

It's more different when you are from the said country.

I sympathise, trust me; being told "you don't sound English" by Americans has long lost it's charm.

Is it? Really?

The show Vikings is shot in Ireland. Even the episode where they were supposed to visit Uppsala. It's about convenience. No reason to get pissy about in any way, actually.

I think it's more of a way Romania was shown.

I am not sure that is actually true. Maybe have sent few more guys. We had big number of expatriats before anyways. Considering it was one of them who brought the DVD along.

Quite sadly, "from Kazakstan" is my trait. Being a quiet, socially awkward kid doesn't really help.

Nah, at least they didn't go to a poor gypsy village like those Top Gear wankers did.

You know what's somewhat annoying? People speaking German in American TV shows. I wouldn't even use myself to play a German...

Okay, bad choice of word.

But anyhow, giving a crap about how your country is portrayed by the media doesn't lead anywhere good.

I really find it... annoying. I get they wanna show off and feel superior, but that is just not classy.

If you watch Top Gear expecting Class, you're gonna have a bad time.

Wasn't the general idea to make comedy from the Americans' reactions to the idea and actions of a "Ruritanian"?

In Borat? Yeah, pretty much.

Think Hooded is talking about Top Gear/Romania in that quote though.

Maybe. I am sleepy...

What I meant in general, is that when I went to this posh UK school, most of the time some loved the portrayals of other poorer countries. Be it Top Gear or Borat.

Sometimes they wanted to drag me in. Which was weird, as I wasnt poor... so it was just racist I would say.

P.S. I rarely watch TG, but i mostly expect cheap jokes))

Or when they speak English with a German accent.

No offense, sorry
But then, that is the problem. I rarely show emotion of any sort, and also, am extremely shy and an introvert. As a result, it just seems as if I don't have any trait at all. I don't like to give up when confronted by problems, so there's the stiff upper lip, but the thing is, it is not something that can be easily seen in any post on the Internet( I don't discuss my real life problems with anybody besides my own family, so obviously how I deal with them isn't something anyone here would know)

But my likes and dislikes, I thought would be known, because I did spend a lot of time defending WoW and Blizzard an year ago, and did have huge debates with whiners, particularly the night elf ones(I felt that most whiners took the game too seriously, as if it's something deeply tied to their life, when in the end, it should just be a game, not something you depend on to live).
