Don’t You Dare Mess With My TV-Seattle
June 5, 2012 1 Comment
To determine when exactly this crossover point occurred will require an in-depth federally-funded study, the grant approval for which I am still keeping my fingers crossed, but suffice it to say that sometime in the past decade I noticed that I actually spend more time reading about TV shows online than actually watching TV shows. Now this isn’t true for a TV show I am actually watching, like The Killing, but even then it’s pretty close, as I’ve logged my share of time reading the recaps and forums on Television Without Pity.
There’s one very common complaint that I wanted to note here though, as it is completely misguided in my view: several people think that The Killing portrays way, way too much rain in Seattle. Now, come now. I may not know nor care a lot about Seattle, nor do I ever wish to, but if there’s one thing I know, it’s that we in the TV audience want our TV-Seattle good and rainy dammit. So shut up.
(And yes, we do too want it to look exactly like Vancouver, in case that was going to be your next snippy remark.)
