    Thoughts on the British dub?

    Why not. Just like the title suggests.
    Having grown up in the UK, I love the dub (well, at least S1/2), but obviously it's... erm... not for anyone.

    What are your thoughts??

    Re: Thoughts on the British dub?

    Unfortunately, Australia had to have the British dub of Cooking by the Book in their OST. Im not a huge fan for it. I tried to watch Dancing Dreams with the dub... I wasnt a fan.

    But hey, if other people like it, why not?

    Re: Thoughts on the British dub?

    I'd consider having the UK dub of CBTB on the Australian CD to be a blessing as opposed to a curse
    I do understand how it could be seen as rather... awful, for a lack of a better term, though. I suppose I'm biased because I grew up with it.

    Re: Thoughts on the British dub?

    I find the british dub to be hilarious so I often find myself watching it just to get a good laugh.
    Especially Trixie's voice because she's still voiced by Sarah except now she goes all out with her accent.

    Re: Thoughts on the British dub?

    It seemed like they got a bit sloppy in s3-4. Like in TWGR when they didn't even dub the chorus. And maybe in RFE, but I thought maybe they dubbed the UK voices over the US voices to make it sound better. Like in the chorus how Jodi is singing along with Stephanie. Or Stingy's part in the second chorus when there's a high key and low key at the same time. But in some cases the UK s3-4 dub, you can still hear US voices for some reason, which is really unnecessary because it is not hard to dub a simple little *haha* or something like that. I agree the s1-2 dub is good but the s3-4 dub is ok. Not terrible though.

    Re: Thoughts on the British dub?

    I'm british but i personally prefer the american dub, to be honest i think it's unnecessary cos it's still english and at the end of the day you still see american words everywhere like tv and movies

    Re: Thoughts on the British dub?

    I absolutely detest the UK dub to the point where I can't watch the Ziggy scenes of LazyTown Extra. All of the dubbed voices either sound annoying (like Ziggy) or stupid (like Pixel). Additionally, all of the accents sound totally fake and exaggerated.

    And the original actors didn't even have American accents strong enough that a UK dub would be required.

    Another terrible part of the UK dub is the singing, which seems to sacrifice pitch and tone for a fake British accent. Just look up "I am a Prince UK dub". They get rid of talented vocals from Jodi Eichelberger and (for seasons 1 and 2) Kobie Powell and replace them with depressingly bad singing.

    Re: Thoughts on the British dub?

    Oh my... I can understand that though. I personally find it incredibly amusing (especially the singing). There are some songs that I really genuinely prefer the UK for, such as Wake Up.

    But Kobie Powell's so much better at singing. But yeah, Wake Up is one of the better UK dub songs.
