Are you being serious? Not being snarky, just asking.

I just think it's a dated and derogatory term used to stereotype a group of people based on what they do for a living. It denotes that there's something dirty or undesirable about them, it's just not a term I would use.

Yes, no doubt, but what I was getting at is if there're too many locations it will reduce the time spent in those locations and reduce the value and or possible interaction of the location in the overall story itself. Would the first series of TD have been anywhere near as good if it was located in say, New York City, Long Island and parts of New Jersey? I loved the fact the environment played a substantial part in the story and I'm hoping that dynamic is not reduced to just boucing around a bunch of different locations in California diluting the effect and atmosphere of the locations they do use. In other words, use too many locations and the locations themselves end up adding nothing to the story, they could be Anywhere, USA and it would have zero influence or importance to the story.

I'm still going to watch every episode though!

Gotcha. I misunderstood what you were saying. Personally, I love California and I'm looking forward to seeing some of the locations, particularly Big Sur. I love that place. I hope they do a lot of the filming there.

I watched the show for the first time a few weeks ago over a few days. I thought it was very well done and atmospheric.
