There really is a town called Evening Shade, Arkansas which is located in the north-central part of the state. During the show's run, gift shops in the real town would sell t-shirts and other trinkets with the show's logo on them. See more »
An underrated television program from the early years of the last decade which featured good stories, interesting subplots, and brilliant mixture of comedy and drama. Was Burt Reynolds's last time that he gave a good and consistent performance as an actor. Evening Shade(1990) is definitely better than any of the shows on NBC today which passes for quality television. Also contributing to the good acting was Charles Durning and Ossie Davis. One of my favorite shows from that time period that derserved to stay on air longer.
