Good as usual for the show, but some dodge British accents
The show in general has been fun and compelling, but a couple of the actors playing the parts of Brits were not just not British (if they can act well enough it doesn't matter), they were not passable as British, mainly my problem is American actor, Billy Magnussen, who plays a fool who turns out to be a "great actor" and wows everybody by nailing the part of a colourful British character, now poor impersonations of accent aside, he is a fine actor, not really much more than that, he's no Alec Guinness or Marlon Brando, no Garry Oldman (unless you are talking about his more recent roles), but he's fine, he's certainly not bad, but to get to the point real British people (the kind in the script reading) would not be at least sincerely impressed (unless they were particularly stupid) by a quite frankly inadequate impression of a British accent, to point out the kind of pronunciation mistake Magnussen makes, he pronounces dog as dug, Americans pronounce dog dawg (no offense) a British person who speaks the queens English as the table read character was attempting would pronounce dog, dog, any way other than this nitpick it was a fine episode.
