As an American, and for what it's worth, the "USA #1 GRAAAA GUNS!" people make me cringe too. I wish more of us had the humility you describe as being integral to British patriotism. I like (many, certainly not all) things about my country, being from my country, and living here. I feel lucky to have been born here, certainly, but I don't get the hyperbolic bragging. At all. 

On an unrelated note, I also love tea. Or maybe it is related...maybe what the USA needs is more tea drinkers?

OK, why do all my posts append "Web Rep" and "Overall Rating" to themselves without my asking, and how do I make that stop? It's really irritating me, so I can only imagine how people who's threads I comment on feel.

I'm really enjoying "Tropes vs. Women in Videogames" and I can't wait for the next one to come out. That said, I wondered if you'd ever do more of your TV/pop-culture based videos too. For example, I just started watching Supernatural on Netflix, and while I enjoy it quite a bit, I can't help but be bothered by the use of Sam's mother AND girlfriend being non-characters who serve no purpose other than to motivate Sam to go (violently) fight evil by dying horribly. I get that it's the whole epic hero call to adventure thing, so when he refuses the call something terrible must happen to force his hand, but it could have gone any number of ways other than that. I'm hoping it gets better later.

It wasn't so much the having horrible things happen to them, as the having mysterious abilities. I'm specifically thinking of the wise old native american man who just knows that Dean is lying immediately (I'd object to the indian burial ground as source of evil more, but I felt like they did an adequate job of explaining why, even if that whole episode wasn't terribly strong to begin with) and then the fortune telling black lady who really can tell fortunes. These traits aren't bad, but they are abnormal and thus reinforce the idea that members of those ethnic groups are fundamentally different from "us". 

However, the very next episode starts with a down to earth african american cop who isn't even the one who dies first (or at all) so it's not all like that.

As for horrible things happening to people, I'm pretty well prepared for that. I've heard people describe it as the X-Files/Buffy and well...horrible things, happening to people I like. Only time will tell if I think it goes too far.
