Heroes goes oirish

Just watched the second season premiere of Heroes. About three minutes from the end a scene was introduced set in a dock in Cork, Ireland. Immediately my thoughts ran to “please don’t have the actors doing corny Irish accents”. Sure enough, not 10 seconds, later my fear had been confirmed. This is the worst type of ridiculous shit for a show like Heroes. Why couldn’t you have just done it right? Oh, and what made it even more OTT was the fact that there was a grafitti shamrock on a shipping container in the background. 🙄 Seriously.

    But don’t you think the Japanese, Haitian and Indian accents are also overdone?

    I don’t watch the show, but taking the easy way out is the Hollywood rule, not the exception… sadly. This is horrific because it only serves to reinforce stereotypes that we should be outgrowing.

    Where are you dude scoring these eps from? I cannot see them on channel bittorent anywhere… Am intrigued by the set in Ireland thing… the last episode looked like a lot of it was going to be set in feudal Japan.
