    sometimes she sounds scotish, other times she sounds like a california surfer/spiccoli type, and others she sounds like the "da bearsss!" guys. all within the same sentence.

    is this a thing?

    it's terrible.

    Very strange. We noticed it when she said "home", like "ho-em". :right: What did you think of the episode, Dink?

    I didn't really notice. I will pay more attention.

    Accent or not, I really dug the first episode, and am stoked I have a new show

    She sported a sort of southern accent on The Office that last season...very versatile. As long as she keeps the nude scenes to a minimum we're good.
