  1. One of the best shows on TV. Film as much as they want in the neighborhood. Great actors, great plotlines, exciting..just all around perfect show.

  2. I recognized the enormous basement of Flatbush Tompkins Congregational Church (which is on 19th). Elizabeth meets Pastor Tim there. Season 4 Episode 11.

  3. It’s by far one of my favorite dramas. I have no problem suspending any belief as most shows and movies tend to lean that way.
