I really related to a scene where Will is trying dating and it turns out his date loves all the tabloid stuff. He can't hide his boredom. I feel the same way. I have American (and even other nationalities, though not Japanese) friends over here that love all that Jersey Shore et al stuff. I am happy to say I don't have the slightest clue what it is all about, and am proud to say so.

I had heard the name Kardassian (spell?) - which I always thought was the name of a Star Trek alien race - and assumed she, they, it whatever was one of the Jersey Shore people. No, I was told, they are unconnected. Ignorance is bliss.
