So there is somebody on Downton Abbey who is supposed to be American (I'm watching ahead of the PBS airings via Totally Legitimate Internet Means) and I'm like NO YOU'RE NOT from the first time they opened their mouth. Lo and behold a cursory IMDB search reveals that they are in fact British! British people doing American accents always cracks me up, I'm like, oh lord, is that how they think we sound? Real 'Murcans can always tell!
