  1. It seemed like Chase was being really careful to make the show appear to be filmed in Houston. They have a lot of aerial downtown shots, they always venture out to nearby neighborhoods/towns (e.g., The Woodlands, Galveston, Sealy, River Oaks, etc.). However, last night's show clearly showed a downtown Dallas skyscraper in the background of the image. I was a little surprised to see this obvious Dallas evidence in the show that tries so hard to be set in Houston. Oh well, as I said a while back, I'd rather have a show filmed in Dallas and set in Houston than have a show filmed in Houston but set in Dallas. It's like the producers are saying that Dallas isn't cool enough for the setting of the show, they have to pretend to be the cooler city to the south to make a compelling show. A slap in the face to Dallas if you ask me.
  2. I guess the moral to my post is, be careful what you wish for. Even if LSU has had success "in spite" of the head coach, he's still fielding a consistently good team. Don't assume that if he's fired, that you'll automatically get an upgrade. See Dennis Franchione.
  3. As an Aggie, I have little sympathy for LSU fans who constantly complain about their coach who consistently fields Top 25 teams and has won a national championship. He's obviously doing something right. Meanwhile, the Aggies just can't turn the corner. And you think your coaching situation is so terrible?
  4. That's fine, like I said earlier, I liked Chase better than Lone Star anyhow. Plus it's much more Houston-centric than Lone Star was. Dallas is the biggest loser here, all the shots of their fair city (once again, portrayed as Houston) are now gone. Chase hasn't yet attempted to pass off any Dallas-specific shots as Houston.
  5. I do find it humorous that Dallas finally gets two high profile shows to tape in their city, but the producers decide the shows would be better if set in Houston. They went out of their way to portray Dallas as Houston. I would be ticked off if it were the other way around.
  6. Well I watched both of these premieres on Monday night. Lone Star was ok, a little weak in parts if you ask me. It does have potential though. The annoying part of this show is that while it's partly set in Houston they don't attempt to portray Houston. It's obvious they're in Dallas, but they refer to it as Houston. Chase on the other hand was really good. You can see the Jerry Bruckheimer influence all over this show. It's a pretty high budget affair along the lines of CSI. The premise is set around a group of US Marshalls who office out of downtown Houston, they hunt down a different fugitive in each show. We get the customary flybys of downtown Houston day and night, pretty cool. They portray Houston well with a good attention to detail - they mentioned Ben Taub, Briar Forest, River Oaks, etc. all in the first episode. Smaller portions of the show were also set in Fort Worth, San Antonio, and El Paso, but no Dallas. It looks like they're really trying to appeal to the Texas audience with this one. Check it out.
  7. Wow, this is cool. I can't wait to watch them. Don't forget that "Real Housewives" is coming to Houston also.
  8. I'm all signed up, and it appears that I can manage my picks from the office this year! Thanks for putting this together again Highway6, gig'em!
  9. I agree that this is a good location, probably better than the other, as long as they can upgrade the nearby infrastructure. I know they completed the bridge and exits from Hwy 6 to Hwy 90, but I think they need better on/off access from Hwy 90 to Hwy 59 if they want people from Houston to have easy access to the new ballpark.
  10. Wow, nobody has been keeping up with Sugar Land Town Square. It's booming...still. They are adding more office space and retail/restaurant tenants continue to come aboard or expand. New businesses opening in Sugar Land Town Square
  11. This is a great location. Right on the hippest part of the Riverwalk.
  12. Neither was available when the Texans picked at 20. I think they got a solid Cornerback which, along with Running Back, was the biggest need. Hopefully we can get a good Running Back today in Round 2.
  13. It looks like I've already wrapped up first place! And before the Final Four weekend has even begun, not too shabby. No thanks to the teams from the state of Kansas.
  14. Let's please not get into this again. Read the full thread and your question is answered several times.
