Lost In Translation

I heard recently that viewers of the show 'The Wire' in the UK used subtitles to follow the Baltimore gangsta slang and even the cop jargon. I feel like I could have used subtitles myself, but I did get a little better over time at understanding the local cant.

I suppose this is what it might have seemed like like if they had dubbed it instead of merely providing subtitles.

"Aw hell no, did you end a sentence with a preposition?"
