Sorry, but right from the start couldn't handle the English accents. Not English accents, but these. I can take accents. Love BBC, Masterpiece Mystery (even though you would think no Americans write mysteries). Lovejoy, the best. These sounded phony. Especially the guy. Maybe it won't bother you. Try it and see. And i really wanted to listen to these.
