Fall Lineup

In addition to the great weather, Autumn brings back all my favorite shows. There are some great shows out there – Grey’s Anatomy, which I watched last year when I was in Seattle, made the city look smart and romantic, Lost, island living and surviving at its best. Six Degrees, a new show that has promise set in the big Apple. Even Gilmore Girls, Smallville, and Desperate Housewives with their idyllic picturesque fictional settings brings about a yearning to live there. Their shows are funny, witty, dramatic and entertaining. Is it mostly the writing responsible for this, or the actors? Of course, however, I do feel in my humble opinion that the setting is also very important. Except for Medium, which is set in Phoenix, I am surprised there aren’t as many good shows set in Sedona or Flagstaff, which are very attractive locales. Some of these shows are filmed in interiors anyways and mostly the exterior shots are in backlots or b unit photography. So what gives? Arizona not mysterious, dramatic, sexy, or funny enough? What if Grey’s Anatomy was set in Tucson? Would the magic be lost? They’ve got to do something better than “The Tuesday Night Book Club.”
