The Gator Nation

Mon Sep 24, 2007

I’ve noticed that both The Sopranos and The Wire have throwaway references to Gainesville (vending machine falls on someone in the former, Bunk’s wife visits family there in latter). Given that every other college graduate, roughly speaking, is from Ohio State, Florida, or Arizona State, I’d guess that some company gaffer or another’s having a bone thrown; but I don’t know.

Also, one of the Buffy seasons, maybe six, has an extra with a guy wearing a UNCW shirt, which pleased me.
