Okay okay. I'm calm. Really. I just started watching Constantine because I thought it might be fun. I watched the first episode and it wasn't totally terrible. The story was ok, the characters vaguely interesting. BUT I was struggling with John Constantine's accent. What was it supposed to be? Irish? British? A tiny bit Scouse at times? I dunno. I looked up the actor - he's Welsh. So perhaps a touch of Taffy in there.

I start watching Episode 2 - set in a Welsh mining town in Pennsylvania (stretching my credulity already here, but okay, if you can have a Welsh-speaking enclave in Patagonia, then why not in the USA?). Bar scene, Constantine talking to a local yokel. Says he was born and brought up in Liverpool. OMG!!!! He IS supposed to be a Scouser. Fuck me sideways, but that has to be one of the worst Scouse accents EVER. Even I could do better than that.

I will try and carry on watching but I don't know if I can get past this. First Patrick the Irish witch, then Crowley's supposed Scottish son and Rowena the Scottish witch in SPN - what is it with US TV that won't allow these poor actors to use their own PROPER accents????

Breathes deeply. I'm fine.
