There’s going to be a new TV channel in France aimed at American expats. It’s called Burger TV. How unimaginative and stereotypical.
Here’s an actual quote from one of the directors of the channel: “When you are an American living outside your country you miss two things: your television shows and a good burger!”
Excuse me? I’m sorry, but this just makes me feel angry. And insulted.
On an interesting linguistic note, that second article (written by a Brit) mentions the Midwest as if it refers to the entire USA. And “homely” US dramas? LOL. I knew the meaning must have been different in British English.
