While we're at it, screenings of the other Vegas show on CBS, with D. Quaid, will be warranted... http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/tca-2012-vegas-dennis-quaid-cbs-ralph-lamb-michael-chiklis-355705

The only problem I have with Quaid's Quaid's show is
the whole thing is filmed at Santa Clarita Studios in
LA. The pilot was in NM. None of it is being filmed
is Vegas. At least on the last Las Vegas show, with
James Caan, the pilot was shot in Vegas, and lots
of exterior shots of the Strip were in every episode.

I've caught some "Breaking Vegas" episodes lately on "History-2" channel [note this is not the MIT-team movie but a TV series]. So, there is a chance to catch some of those still, perhaps. I saw 2 episodes, one of which I had not seen before.

One show will be "Fresh Butter Hyped, Decades old margarine provided".

The other show is more a period piece constantly set in Vegas of 1960. Old Time Coyboy Sheriff Tangles with Old Time Mafioso Big Wind.

Wait a sec ...

Is that supposed to be Vegas? With a sidewalk newsstand? And PARKING METERS... on a pedestrian mall?

I mean, are we supposed to think that the above location is the same as this?

Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition.

Oh no! It comes on the same time as Breaking Bad!

It's supposed to be old Vegas, not new Vegas.



And the reason why they are not filming in LV.

I'm looking forward to the Dennis Quaid / Michael Chiklis
series. I saw a preview of it somewhere, and I thought
it looked good. I think the 2 lead actors are pretty
talented.
