Has anyone seen this new drama series?

It's probably the best TV I've watched in some time. It's a bit disappointing that the accents are not Russian, as that would have added to the immersion of the story for me, but overall, it's some cracking stuff.

I agree it is one of the best TV shows I've seen but I disagree 100% on the accents. I am perfectly fine with the creative decision they made to have everyone speak with an English accent and I think the show benefited from it.

Yeah, the assumption is that they're speaking in Russian and we can understand them. Bad Russian accents would have been more distracting than anything else.

See exhibit A: The Hunt for Red Oktober for more information.

That Sean Connery. What a Scottish Russian accent.

I'd have preferred genuine Russian with subtitles even.

Dunno, just something about that language which lends itself to the story. Very harsh language. English feels too.... dunno, soft and out of place.
