    ...but it's a little disconcerting for me because many of its scenes are filmed in and around my community (Santa Clarita in Southern CA, which was also the shooting locale for the first three seasons of Weeds), so every time I see the characters standing in front of my favorite restaurant or filling up at a nearby gas station, it makes it a little hard for me to feel like I'm really in Kentucky.

    I also noticed as I was watching Season 3 (which I just finished) that the writers seemed to be bringing in a lot of characters whose sole function seemed to be to die at the end of the episode. In fact, I believe that, on average, there are more deaths per episode in this show than any other I watch (including Breaking Bad and Sons of Anarchy).

    Overall, though, I enjoy the series. The stories are interesting (if a bit convoluted at times) and the acting is consistently first-rate.
