Sexy Albuquerque...

It’s amazing how sexy Hollywood can make your city look. Tonight I was watching the USA Network show "In Plain Sight" (IMDB :: Wikipedia), which is based and filmed here in my hometown of Albuquerque, NM. One of the shots early on in tonight’s episode was of downtown after dark and I could not figure out where in downtown they used for their shot.

It just totally did not look anything like Downtown Albuquerque does after dark. They made downtown look sexy and glamorous, two things its not after dark (trust me, I've been downtown after dark, and ya, it’s not anything near glamorous or sexy). Watching this show, and others shot here in Albuquerque and New Mexico, I am just amazed at how well they can make this place look. Granted, I know that is what TV is all about, but it still really does just amaze me.

A while back, I saw a story on 60 Minutes about something that happened in Redding, and I was amazed how the shots they used to the town made it look nice. In reality, Redding is one of the ugliest, skankiest places in the state.

"skankiest" God how I love that word! :)

I would not say that Albuquerque is the ugliest, skankiest place in the state, like Redding is, but this city does have its own "charm" to it. lol.

Really and truly, Albuquerque really does have a really nice charm and character to it, and even to some part downtown, but not after dark. Downtown after dark is all about the bars and clubs, and it’s not really pretty.

Redding is charm-free, except for the view of Mt. Shasta, but you can get that from nicer towns than Redding.

That's funny, because we were watching the show, too, and I had that exact thought. I said - wow, they sure make it look cool here.

Let me know what you think. Overall, it’s not the best show on TV, but it is getting much better then the pilot episode was.
