Check the RedEye today. There's an article about new TV shows coming out that are set in Chicago, four of them. However, none of them are shot here beyond the gathering of stock footage. And you know what happened because of that on The Loop? Instead of shooting a scene at O'Hare Airport, they shot a scene at LAX. And, clear as day in the backdrop, there were mountains. In Chicago.

All I ask, if producers and directors plan to make their settings "Chicago," is that they get the major topography right.

By the way, it's a good start to the Chicago baseball season!
