I hate it when Hollywood butchers Texas' accents.
One of the new lineups for television this year is about small town Texas and a high school football team - Friday Night Lights. We watched the season opener, but I doubt we will hang on for its predictable short ride. It does have hunky Kyle Chandler in a lead role, and I know it has only had one episode, but I just don't think this is Emmy material. I could be wrong.
Besides, I just can't listen to one more badly pronounced "ya'll" without retching.
Maybe it's time for the....ta da..."Texorcist!"
The Texorcist, slowly eradicating bad fake Texas accents, one "yew" at a time.
Ewwwww! We don't tawk that way, do we?
I do make an exception for the character of Joy on "My Name Is Earl". Joy's accent and pronounciations are fine even if the writers never actually say what state Earl and his cohorts live in:
''I can't loose my teeth, Earl. I'm going to be the first woman in my family to get to thirty with all my originals.''
