GEO-WAIT FOR IT-GRAPHY: One thing we didn't note out of press tour is a bunch of spoilery stuff about the HIMYM crew's plans for next year (basically, they admit last year was "too sitcom-y" and are pledging to find their way back this season) but what I want to talk about is their plans to shoot (for the first time) on location in New York. HIMYM, even though it's always been shot in L.A., manages to (mostly) feel New York-ish. Many other New York-set shows that film in L.A. miss that mark completely (I'm looking at you, Friends), while some do hit the mark (both Seinfeld and Sports Night were New York-ish, even though they shot entirely in LA). What other shows/movies hit the mark or miss it completely? Does Good Wife feel Chicago-y even though it films in NYC? How badly does Toronto double for DC on Covert Affairs?
