    Just watched the first few episodes, it isn't bad, story is interesting so far, some of the supporting cast can't act and their characters suck but the main people are OK.

    I have a question about American culture though. Is there some stigma attached to drinking milk? One of the supporting characters made the point that he only drinks black coffee, "I don't do lattes" and it seemed like a macho thing. Noticed it in a few other shows as well, black coffee = macho milk = effeminate.

    I always had the opposite stereotype

    To me typical American espresso drinkers look like this;

    I wouldn't call the absence of milk a macho thing, more of a "pretentious" air coffee snobs and others affect, to be closer to the bean rather than watered down by milk. I only do black for certain coffees and coffee related beverages, it really depends on the bean, roast, and mood I'm in. /pretentious rant

    I think for the images above it would be "Espresso drinker" in general (maybe with soy or almond milk) usually from the east or west coast and " Cows Milk Drinker" which are more commonly found in middle earth.

    Why? Do your taste buds suddenly change after 9 a.m.?
