You, guys from American TV channels, please, stop it!
Stop filming episodes about Russia in your TV series, if you don’t know anything about the country! If you were not aware, we here, in Russia, also watching them and it is pretty annoying to see those stupid steriotypes in every episode.
We’ve got used to “Russian” characters with terrible accent (hello, NCIS, long-gone Sanctuary, Arrow, Criminal minds etc.
Special thanks to Pacific Rim for not making Kaidanovskies speak.). We’ve put up with the steriotype of Russian bandits and spies (guys, really, we have other professions here!). But please stop sending your characters in Russia! It is just to much! These computer-made landscapes and terrible Russian everyone are awful. Yes, we have problems with law-enforcement system, but it is not up to you to support an image of Russian police officers as corrupted idiots. It is not snowing all the year round. Russian girls are not all “glamorous” prostitutes. We don’t have bears on the streets. And we are not drinking vodka all the time.
So, please, either stop filming such idiotic episodes or google in advance
From Russia with love.
