"Shooting a television show."
"Really? Which one?"
"The Glades? Never heard of it. What channel is that on?"
"A&E. This is the second season.", he answered gruffly, and then turned and walked off towards all the hubbub.
He seemed to be a bit perturbed that I had even asked him, and even more when I expressed my ignorance of The Glades.
Of course the minute I got home I Googled The Glades.
"An attractive and brilliant Chicago homicide detective moves to the sleepy, middle-of-nowhere town of Palm Glade, Florida."
I checked out the cast, and didn't recognize one name in it. The star is some guy named Matt Passmore. I wanted to see the show, so I set my DVR to record it that afternoon. After all, if our little block is going to be on television, I want to see it. Sadly, I will probably miss it because after watching The Glades, my opinion is that it's boring. This guy, Matt Passmore, plays a cop who thinks he's the moral superior to everyone else. It had bad acting, and a stupid story line, and put me to sleep halfway through it. Later, just for kicks, I Googled Matt Passmore with the added word naked. Turns out that I might just give The Glades another chance.
