I imagine that the writers make up names of locations so that they don't show any part of Memphis in what could be considered a disparaging light by some suit with their knickers on too tight. I also imagine that they make up names of things like restaurants so that they don't have to pay them any fees for using their establishment in the show; or maybe, it is just to prevent them from being sued (look at what happened with the Mike Tyson tattoo in Hangover 2).
With the show being so young, I thought that they would spend a little more time on character development for the characters they already have. I would like to see more happen with Celia Weston, DJ Qualls, and Leonard Howze before they start integrating more characters with any sort of multi-episode arc. I realize that it is inevitable that the show will give Jason Lee a number of different love interests. This season just seems... lacking.
