Canada stereotypes, just like us!

After watching the second episode of the imported "Grey's Anatomy as cops" on ABC, I noticed that the one Jewish cop is struggling to be taken as a threat by bad guys. Somehow they instantly think he's a wimp. His name is Epstein. He also uses an inhaler. Also - not played by a Jew. Nice work Canada. It's good to know that the stereotype of the nervous Woody Allen type is alive and well in the great white north. At least you have free health care.
This is from the pilot episode.

First words out of his mouth... complains about the bill.

He has asthma!

This last episode after making a big bust who does he call...his mother. Then an old timer cop who's mad at him says "You look smart. You could've been a lawyer or a financial guy..." He looks smart?

The actor who plays Dov Epstein is Greg Smith. Nice.
