One of two shows that FX greenlighted in 2007 with female lead characters, trying to shake the public conception of the network as a 'male network'. The other show being Dirt. See more »
Set in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, the series clearly shows mountains in the background in several episodes. There are no mountains anywhere near Baton Rouge. The nearest "mountain" in the entire state can be found hundreds of miles away in the northern part of the state, near Shreveport. See more »
This show is not nearly as funny as I thought it would be (damn those trailer editors!), but it is better than I imagined. It's amazing what a couple of excellent actors and good writing can bring to a series. Seeing Minnie walk out the gates with those braids and that pallid, dead face! I disagree with a previous poster: Minnie is excellent with accents, and EDDIE IZZARD!! We have been fans of his stand up for years, and he is unrecognizable. He prides himself on having an almost incomprehensible English accent, but his American accent is--so good. Americans are so often casted in Brit flicks, so it's refreshing to see a couple Brits doing the same routine. I'm so excited there is something on to watch--we have no shows left. Hope this doesn't go the way of Wonderland, Wonderfalls, Freaks and Geeks . . . I do hope that it doesn't push itself into some of those Rescue Me directions (cheap thrills, cheap thrills). But would Eddie sign onto something that wasn't special?
