Admittedly I’m a lifelong massive geek of (nearly) all things American. Growing up in Yorkshire, England I watched all the top US shows that were shown on British TV in the 1980’s & 1990’s: Dukes of Hazzard, The A-Team, Knight Rider, Airwolf, StreetHawk, Home Improvement, Frasier, Friends, Seinfeld, The Larry Sanders Show, 3rd Rock from the Sun, Grace Under Fire + many others.
Nearly all of my best friends are American, too + kinda prefer American chicks to British ones ‘cos they aren’t as ‘orrible towards me. In fact of the hundreds of people I know, my friend Melly (originally from Illinois, but now living in South-West England) is the only one of my friends that sends me birthday & christmas presents (as well as the only friend I’ve had since leaving school who’s actually made the effort to actually meet me in person).
Still hoping to finally actually get to go there eventually one day (still making do with Google Earth + Streetview for now).
