Picket Fences deals with life in a small town - in this case the town of Rome, Wisconsin; it centres around the Brock Family. Jimmy Brock is the Sheriff of the town and likes to think he's the centre of attention. His wife Jill is the town doctor; they have three children: Kimberly, 18, Matthew, 13 and Zachary, 10. A lot happens in this small town from bizarre murders to rape, assault, drunk driving, kidnapping & spontaneous human combustion. It seems that all the crimes that have occurred in the whole of the United States have at one point or another happened in Rome and they have to deal with it in their own quirky way. Written by

There are two communities named Rome in Wisconsin. One is an Adams county resort town with a population of around 2,500 and the other is a Jefferson County unincorporated town with a population of under 600. Neither Rome is in proximity to Green Bay. Hogan County, the location of Rome is fictional (there is no county named Hogan in any of the 50 states). See more »

Sure they were. You just can't tell.

I enjoyed the show "picket fences", especially the first several years, up until the change from current events to concentrating on individual characters(and relationships). When the show focused on different opinions of what was going on in the world and having the same thing happen in Rome was great! I particularly enjoyed the "religious" controversy with jimmy his wife and kids when jimmy said at the very best he was an agnostic. The show was great up until that change and I feel that's what did it in. Still would buy it if it ever comes out on DVD, but only the first few seasons.
