Why does something have to be cutting edge in order to be culturally relevant?

America is the most culturally relevant nation in the world, Paris Hilton or not.

I think there's plenty of interesting and original culture happening in the United States, but unfortunately it doesn't get supported and hyped as much as junk culture like reality TV, so most people don't know it is there.

Do you guys have "Lost" yet ? Wiorth a watch.

I read somewhere also that a HUGE amount of internet bandwidth in Europe is taken up by the torrenting of US TV shows because the beeb et al aren't all caught up yet with the likes of "24", "CSI", etc

Yes we have Lost, I haven't seen it. Don't watch much TV to be honest.

Second point: probably quite true!
