Was filmed in the town where I work, Plymouth, NH. First showing is in just a few minutes on CBS. I seldom watch any network shows but I will be watching this one, just to see some of the familiar scenery and what they did with it.

you'd be surprised how they chop things up - suzn used to work at a shop in sand canyon and they had a crew up there shooting a scene for BJ and the bear - we managed to find out the air date so watched the show. To anybody locally familiar, it was the most confusing foot chase in history - here's this guy chasing the other one between the trees at sand canyon, thru san fernando mission (20 miles south) across a parking lot in san diego (200 miles south) and finally tackled him near vasquez rocks (10 miles north). with all the splicing, i forget what they were arguing about. it was probably in the script somewhere :)

I didn't even notice that kind of stuff. They couldn't even get through the opening scene without a handful of seksual references. Now mind you, I don't have nothing against seks because I know if it wasn't for seks, none of us would be here. But this is just gratuitous garbage. Can't anybody write anymore? Whatever happened to the good old days of Taxi, Barney Miller, F Troop........

I built a house for a cop some years back. He said that the only cop show even close to reality was Barney Miller... Mike D.

It took about 2 minutes to remind my why I haven't watched network tv shows in years and 20 minutes of it was all I could stand.
My humble apologies for even bringing the subject up.

it could have been a lot worse,Les. They made a movie here in 1999 called The White River Kid with Antonio Banderas. Filmed a lot of it right here in town. What a flop. I tried twice to watch it. Turned it off both times. As far as I know it was only released on video, never the big screen. It was that bad.

Several years ago much of the forgettable movie, Chill Factor, was filmed in and around our small town. They needed a chase scene filmed on a dirt mountain road, so they went up into the mountains north of town (and you could count the number of paved roads through those mountains on one hand with fingers left over), found a paved road that just fit their needs, and hauled in dumptruck after dumptruck load of dirt to cover the pavement and filmed their chase scene.

That night it rained . . . and the fish hatchery at the bottom of the road needed its daily delivery of food for the fish . . . and seeing as how the road consisted of hairpin curves and 9% grades, the truck couldn't get down the slippery once-paved-now-dirt road. So, they called my husband, who runs heavy equipment for the county, out on his day off to scrape the dirt off the road so the baby fish could eat. The road was just as slippery for him to drive and work on. He was not happy.
