Why is it that the Britain shown in American shows, whilst being wildly off the mark always has the air of the Britain (or more specifically London) of the 1960's? And why is it we're often show to say nonsense words like "fimbly" I get the whole "Brit slang is weird" thing, but nobody actually talks anything like that.

I'm not being a butthurt Brit, it really doesn't bother me but I legit want to know peoples thoughts on it

Why do Brits keep getting cast in big American roles then?
>>
>>64908256
Because there is more concentrated talent on this tiny island than what there is in the whole continent of America.

But nah seriously, its probably because it's easier to get noticed in Britain, and American films tend to be set in or have American roles so when you look for talent for your role, sometimes it lands on a Brit.

I'm a Labour voter, and I think the monarchy is good for Britain, but only because to give her her dues, the Queen is fucking good at her job as ambassador to Britain, let alone all the money made from tourism.

I think it's because the 60's were when Britain was strongest economically. The 50's were too close to the war so people were still recovering, and in the 70's things started to go downhill, so it's the only time until I guess the 90's when you saw people there being more confident and optimistic.

60's Britain was after the Suez crisis though, which was a marked turn for Britains standing on the world stage in that we weren't seen as the strong nation we once were at the height of empire. That coupled with the wind of change speech and the letting go of India made Britain look incredibly weak to the world.

We didn't really seem like a properly strong nation again until the Falklands, but then we still had mass strikes and Thatcher to deal with.

That's true but I think the phenomenon we're talking about has more to do with the mood on the street at the time. Quality of life was going up for most regular people so the nation was feeling more energetic. On top of that (or maybe because of it) British pop culture was starting to become a real force internationally. I think this caused in places like the US a kind of snapshot of the culture at the time to be embedded in people's minds as part of their image of Britain.

>>
>>64911585

It's not like you can just get rid of them just like that. They are so heavily ingrained into the countries structure literally everything would need changing from taxes to laws and so on. This would not be easy, would take a lot of time and money. Then you would have to be able to convince the public to accept it, which there would definitely be a massive section of the population heavily opposed to it, and could easily lead to riots and such.

Basically, the cost of changing the system would be much, much higher than just keeping it going as it is, even if you don't like the royals.

Because in the 1960s Britain was culturally relevant in the US, and that was the time when America was trying really hard to be like Britain. You had The Beatles and The Rolling Stones in music, Monty Python on TV, James Bond in the theaters, etc.

Therefore that just happens to be the mental image most Americans have of England.

I'm sure in the UK there's a similar phenomenon where everyone thinks America is New York in the 70s because of Annie Hall or something.

That's a real load there, anon 2. Brits are cast as Americans in American films because casting someone else from the anglosphere, specifically Europe, gives the film international appeal. In reality, Bongs are just as bad at American accents as Americans are at Bong. However, American audiences are stupid and forgiving, or just never think about the actors being a different nationality, which is where this stigma of Brits being good at accents comes from.

I've found the US TV view that Britain = England = London quite wierd too.

Like pic related is Britain but I'd made a good guess that most Americans would call it Scottish first. Yet if I showed a picture of a red telephone box, or some other London thing from the 60s then they'd say Britain rather than England.

It's kind of like a British person being shown the Empire State Building and saying "that's NYC, not America!" or a cowboy "that's Texas, not America!"

Yes, all that tourism moolah would completely vanish if the Royals were booted out.

For the record, I'm entirely ambivalent to them. I really don't care enough to form a solid opinion either way, but don't pretend the argument of the pro-monarchist is any more compelling or objective than those wanting to give them the boot.

>>64916630
>They bring more to the economy in tourism than they waste in taxes
No, their houses do. No tourist has ever met the Royal's for more than 5 seconds if they happen to be at the front row of an event they're opening.

This argument is one of the stupidest you hear in regards to the royals. I mean, France's high levels of tourism has completely disappeared since they beheaded their royals hasn't it?

"British accent" is a weird one.

I don't expect Americans to know "Scouse", "Geordie", etc. even if the accents and dialects are familiar to them, but it's odd that a Scottish accent is a "Scottish accent", yet an English accent (any English accent) is usually a "British accent" first and foremost.

Not that I'd know the difference between various Southern American accents, I'm sure there's a lot of variation beyond the typical hillbilly accent.

I'd read the comments on that second video though. The author makes some good points, but gets a few things wrong.

People still go to see the relics of the French monarchy though.

Way to prove his point, only half of those are in common use.

The answer is that most American accents are really easy to do.

Listening to most American actors do an English accent is just painful.
>>
>>64917412
See that's what I mean.

That's hilarious but nothing like anything any British person would ever say.

Like its not even a playful ribbing of our slang, its literally nothing like it. Why do yanks think we speak even remotely like that?

I have also lived in England all my life and the vast majority of people I know really like the Queen and William and so on, although most hate Charles and Camilla.

Are they?

I can do one because of exposure to American films and television (I can do an RP accent in the same way), but I doubt it would sound authentic to an actual American.

However, I couldn't do Brummie or Cockney to save my life.

They wouldn't go see buckingham palace if the royals didn't live there. Or at least pretend to.
We should just scuttle big ben and the london eye too because they eat tax money in maintenance.

>>64917694
The idea that folk wouldn't go to visit a building because people they will never see anyway, are not in it, is frankly absurd.
>>
>>64917694
Don't forget St Pauls and Westminster Abbey. The Globe can go as well.

Forgot about The Globe. Might as well tear the whole of Stratford upon Avon down as well.

Shakespeare has been dead for 400 years this year, so there is no chance of him being in any of the buildings still up from his day.

i have this vision in my head of THE ENGLISH as a weird family made up of vinnie jones, hyacinth from keeping up appearances, the uncle from harry potter, david bowie, judy dench, Mr. Belvidere, Mr. Sheffield from the nanny, and micheal caine, and then at teh kids table johnny rotten, and adele, and the people from shaun of the dead.

That's pretty much the southern third of the country. But I don't blame you for thinking that's representative of England as a whole.
