Re: “Memphis Beat, "Inside Man"

I enjoy the show. I think the characters are likable and the dialogue is often funny. But I don't understand why the producers avoid using the names of real places. There is no legal reason why they can't say someone had dinner at the Rendezvous or that they live on Poplar Avenue. It would give the show some much-needed authenticity if they would name-drop actual locations. (The stock photos of downtown Memphis are great, but they're not enough.)
What really bugs me, though, is that the place where they do film the show doesn't even resemble Memphis. The land is too flat, and you can see tropical species of trees that don't grow in west Tennessee. I understand the need to film in Louisiana because it's cheaper, but can they be a little less OBVIOUS about it? They're not fooling anyone.
