I’ve started watching season 2 of Heroes. I had heard much talk of Cork being in the second season, and god it’s bloody awful. The accents are woeful, the sets make Ireland look like it did in 1954 rather than 2007. The second episode shows a pub “The Wandering Rock” (
whatever that meansan apparent reference to Ulysses – in Cork?), with dingy bathrooms and people wearing shabby dirty clothes. Jaysus.
I guess there are some pubs like that, but do we have to stereotype to such a degree?
Here’s hoping it gets better.
