For my non-American Followers: Shows That Represent the USA Realistically


Roseanne: They’re poor. They fight. They stick together. Probably the most realistic depiction of an American family that has ever been on TV. Still rings true, even though the fashions are now a little dated. 


King of the Hill: As a native Texan, I have to say that if you visit Texas, you will meet some of these people. So little of this is an exaggeration, it makes you wonder why its animated. 


The Office: Okay, yeah, it’s based on the British original, but much of what came out of the American version is unique to its local, and the differences (and similarities) between the British and American versions are very true.


Community: The school Greendale is ridiculous, and there’s no point trying to defend it potentially being a realistic representation. However, representing what the attitude and demographics of America are? Hell to the yes. The study group represents all the best and worst of who Americans are, everything from the obliviously racist baby boomer, to the egocentric hipster. Dan Harmon even managed to give us an incredibly realistic Evangelical Christian without making her cartoony or offensive to actual Christians.


Note that none of these are reality TV shows

↳ Study Group Scene That Made You Cry: Pierce’s Death

"Tonight’s celebration was cut short by some tragic news. Pierce Hawthorne, entrepreneur, and expert heart attack faker has passed away, for real this time. Pierce had been recently banned from campus, but not from our hearts. He’s survived by many ex-wives and all of us here at Greendale that called him friend. If you’re listening, Pierce, you were a hell of a D&D player. It’s time to level up.”

Pierce was an amazing character, truly. He was so real and tangible and always truly himself (even if that was kind of rude and horrible sometimes) whereas all the others flip flopped around. He was so human and flawed and it was great. Pierce forever.

I just loved that we had the Baby Boomer who was so typically racist and horrible in that way that they all are, where they insist they can’t be because they smoked weed and went to protests in their youth.
