Watch Paul Ryhs, an otherwise excellent actor, try to mimic an American accent in his performance as Aldrich Ames in The Assets. It was painfully bad.
Your post left me with the impression that you failed to read, or at least comprehend,
Let me, less vauge..
Shows get on my list to watch:
1) ACTORS... I guess I need to be totally clear. FEMALE ACTORS.
HOT FEMALE ACTORS
2) Potential for those in #1
to be nude
99) Plot, story, etc..
Hopefully that clears it up..
The names you are giving me, don't ring bells. Because they likely are NOT FEMALE.

Read... it... I don't notice the accents.. end of story. Its not something I worry about...
Something I will notice is that if you pick two agencies, and put them in a show cough GLADES cough. Then you start with mix and matching of some things related to these agencies... Well let me tell you right now, the two agencies depicted in that show do NOT WORK THAT WAY! Period. Additionally, there is a pretty good chance that the officers from the two would shoot each other.
Same with things related to radio use in a show... If you are depicting a show in x and then start showing radio use that is inconsistent with the radio system in that area.. I will flip out... Simple little things like the background chatter for the radios. to when they key up and you have a 5/6 tone ANI burst... for x... NOPE! That is stuff I notice.. Same with all these "CSI" labs... If the public were to see the ACTUAL "CSI" labs in 99.9999% of agencies, their jaws would drop... I can deal with a little dramatic license, but these shows go beyond that , and most against their own consultants who are telling them that "it don't work that way."
I am not into artsy farsty stuff.. I don't care that much about all the technical stuff that they used f.28 400 inch lens on panaduper camera... Blah balh blah... I tuned out..
Plain and simple you put Kate Winslet in a movie I will likely watch it at some point. Same with a long list of actors.. There is stuff I've had to seek out because much of this stuff is for foreign actors in languages I don't understand. Its really too bad that some of this doesn't get some decent releases outside the source country.
