'White Lines' Netflix Fans Are All Distracted By The Same Thing
But there's one (pretty huge) thing people can't seem to get past: the Manc accents.
The drama follows Zoe (Laura Haddock), who leaves her comfortable life in Manchester for the stunning Balearic island to find out what happened to her brother, legendary Manchester DJ Axel (Tom Rhys Harries), whose body is discovered 20 years after he went missing in Ibiza.
It's made up of present-day action and flashbacks of Axel and his friends, Marcus (Daniel Mays), Anna (Angela Griffin) and David (Laurence Fox), and their hedonistic and anarchistic years on the music scene between Manchester and Ibiza in the 90s.
Despite all of the key characters being Mancunian, none of the cast hail from the northern city, and it's only Angela Griffin who comes from anywhere close (Leeds).
And it seems viewers are able to tell quite easily, with feedback online giving a big thumbs down for the accents.
"Trying to get into white lines but these northern/Manchester accents are terrible," wrote one viewer on Twitter.
"Trying to watch White Lines on Netflix and the supposed northern accents are f*cking atrocious, not sure I can get past it," agreed a second.
Some even say the accents were enough to make them switch off.
One viewer wrote: "Questionable manny accents on white lines I had to turn it off."
"Started watching White Lines on Netflix. Some of the most shocking Manc accents I have ever heard. I'm trying but this is close to unwatchable," said another.
Jeez. Maybe just hire some actual Mancunian actors next time, eh?
