The British accents

I know some of the "northern" English fighters had fairly strong local accents but were the subtitles really necessary?

I can't understand what you're saying; anyone want to translate?

I didn't need them, but I guess someone in the production department or at Spike did...

Even I could understand them so I don't think the subtitles were needed. Faulkner was pretty hard to understand when he was talking fast though.

From what I've seen on TV subtitles usually aren't necessary. Not just in this show but in lots of others. I think they just put them there to be on the safe side.
