Describe what the characters would be like and what kind of things would happen in the episodes.
A bartender called Moe who owns a messy bar with only 5 regulars…
The worst type of degenerate oafish ……
Visit Forumosa Lounge and you will know!
Crusher and BigDave walk into the bar.
Everybody else walks out (an olldie but a goodie).
SHHH! That’s our secret area! Don’t tell the
peasants I mean members!
A middle aged guy goes to work and comes home and cooks dinner or maybe gets takeout or goes out for dinner with their spouse?
Then sits on sofa to watch TV or read, cat in lap.
No one “watches TV” anymore do they?
Um … is there a better phrase for “turn on Apple TV box or Roku thing-a-ma-bob and TV and watch something from Netflix / Disney+ / Apple TV+ / Amazon Prime / Twitch / Plex / YouTube / my video library”? That doesn’t quite roll off the tongue as well as “watch TV.”
The Lost Soul - came to Taiwan for a gap year, ended up staying 16 years. with no real education or professional background is doomed to stay a buxiban teacher, an alcoholic in the making, spends most of his money on beer.
The Dark One - on the outside is a successful foreigner, but harbors a dark secret. Originally from Slovenia, he is staying here and teaching illegally.
The Frustrated Hua Qiao - Being of Asian origin is constantly mistaken for a local. complains that there are no good bagels in Xinyi.
The love struck foreigner - still thinks in USD and thinks everything here is cheap and so nice… his ignorance of social clues leads to embrassing moments.
The entitled ABC - entitled prick, likes to tell people he manages an invetment firm, but actually manages the family money from a tofu factory in Guandong.
Dude comes from England, but can’t speak nor write a word of English. Gets a job teaching English. Tattoos his face and starts petrol-bombing sidewalks.
An asshole, an idiot, a bullshitter, a drunk and a cheater.
With a lot of overlapping of personalities xD
Yeah… who could believe that?
The sofa is red. It’s always red.
Have you been speaking to my ex?
I suspect many in Taiwan have the same “ex”, but I think we are connected by at least 3 degrees or more. I think!
I was thinking of my Morrocan ex, not my Taiwanese. The Taiwanese ex and I are good friends now.
A lot of drinking in or in front of 7.
And fighting in front of 7. Don’t forget middle aged men rolling around on the floor after a heated political debate got personal.
Would it be this iconic though?
