    i just finished watching the 1st season, it's sort of entertaining but average america won't cling to it like they do entourage. everyone has a general idea of the hollywood douchebag life, the new york hipster scene isn't quite as relatable

    Anybody watching the second season? Just downloaded it a couple of days ago and saw the first episode. Totally forget about this show since it fell off the wagon.

    There's a decent thread in the "General Chat" subforum. I've watched the whole thing. A lot of fun

    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.?

    lactose intolerance. Its easier to deal with explosive diarrhea after breakfast and before the morning shower.
