    I agree. It would be nice to have exposure for the indian community beyond the ‘model minority’ or terrorist roles. However, I’m slightly scared of the Indian snookie (there has to be at least one out there). One is already more than enough for America.

    I do remember an episode of MTV’s Sweet Sixteen that featured a pair of Indian sisters. Even though they were the typical type of teens that MTV chooses for that show (rich, bratty, spoiled, etc), it was still kind of cool to see some brown chicks on there, not wearing a lab coat or hiding a bomb.

    I remember that episode too! It was a long time ago, if we are remembering the
    same one. One of the sisters disinvited a boy after he hugged her when she handed him an invitation. My mom, who was watching with me, approved, of course :) I think they had a surprise band too.

    I’m a Jersey native and I hate that show lol. I’m not against that format being applied to different cultures, I’d just worry about them being exploited. Also, the market has to be there. Depending on the network, the culture chosen would have to be relative to that network’s demographic. On top of that, you run the risk of being a copycat show so you may need a setting other than a beach. Lastly, Dev Patel is NOT that great of an actor lol His role in The Last Airbender seemed force … then again it really wasn’t too good of a movie to begin with.
