Are Britain (and Ireland) like, totally turning into America?

Fed up talking videogames? Why?

If it's a UK show then I'll call it a series, if it's from the US I'll call it a season. I don't see any reason to change that.

Yeah I go with that. You have respect other cultures and their ways of saying things.

I don't say season, but I do say movie instead of film, "film" just sounds odd in this digital age.

Sounds like you're in there.

I hate Oreos and can't see the fascination with them. The peanut butter ones in particular taste like death. The king of biscuits is the Dark Chocolate Hobnob!

Budweiser is similarly unimpressive. Give me an ale any day of the week.

A friend once corrected me saying "series, not season". I didn't really understand what he meant (I was thinking, "aren't they synonyms in this context?") but I went along with it. I have literally only now just realised that "season" is an Americanism. :slol:

I approve of your views on biscuits and beer, also your avatar choice (Morrigan :datass:)

There is nothing to respect about American "culture".

It's been almost 30 minutes, I hope this punchline is worth the wait.

One is thick, caused by it's culture, the other is yoghurt.
