Is it okay if I'm a little critical?

The sound was awful. I had trouble understanding the dialog even with the captioning on! This is unusual for me. Part of the cast was mumbling and the Indian woman was talking way too fast. I felt like I was watching a foreign language film, one where I didn't know the language.

I hated the songs being played over everything. This approach is hackneyed. You see it in every show since at least "Buffy", which was when I first noticed it. Can the "sound track music". Dare to be different.

Was I the only one who thought Jamie blew the accent when he went in to talk to the mother after Quin died? It sounded English, not American to me. OTOH, his anguish is always superb.

For someone who has done so much with an American accent I was a little surprised at this. I'm not sure he quite blew it but he just sounded odd. Like he couldn't decide what type of accent he was using or possibly like he had a head cold or marbles in his mouth or something. Someone had mentioned that back when we first started seeing previews so I was on the look out for it. Maybe he was trying a different type of American accent? I don't know. I'm interested to see the next ep, maybe he has things worked out by then.

Have heard this from a few other people, and other than one moment during Ty's M&M (the exact line escapes me, sorry - lots of jargon in that scene ;) )... honestly, I'm not hearing any real "slips" this time. It sounded to me like Jamie's giving Ty a slightly more laid-back, West Coast-y sounding diction than perhaps Lee had, so it's a little something different than we've heard before.
