What tv shows or movies show locales that are set in or filmed in your region of the country, that make them more familiar and local to you?
One I felt that way about growing up was the series I Dream of Jeannie. Major Nelson's bahama-style house looks pretty much identical to the house I grew up in, and much of the local scenery in South Florida. Cape Kennedy where the show is set is just two hours North of me.
Another was the show Flipper. In elementary school, we went on a field trip to the Miami Seaquarium, and they actually walked us around the set on the grounds where Flipper was still being filmed. It was a very quiet dock area, but still, as kids seeing the set of a show we watched every week, very exciting to see.
