PET PEEVE: Filming in Vancouver, BC and trying to pass it off as Seattle. The city of Seattle plays a crucial character role in this series. The only problem is that, besides the aerial shots (which are very nice, BTW) nothing was filmed in Seattle. Even some of the effects and dialogue references are inaccurate. For example, one of the characters chides the Sarah Linden character for frequenting the drive-thru at DelTaco too often. I don't think there's a DelTaco in the entire state of Washington, let alone Seattle. I know, it's a minor detail, but it's still annoying. And OMG, the fake rain! Seriously? Folks, it rarely rains this intensely in Seattle (or Vancouver, for that matter.) Yes, it's steady and relentless but it's not a constant deluge.
I guess the point of submitting this review is to say that, as a resident of Seattle, it's frustrating, annoying and ultimately distracting to see this happening yet again. It was so distracting for me in this case that I found it impossible to pay attention to the story line or even take it seriously. Suspension of disbelief is critical to enjoying entertainment but, film and television producers must make a convincing effort on the details for it to pass muster. This, unfortunately, didn't work for me here.
