^Ah, if we're going to get into mapping issues then The Glades will make any Floridian cry. That show treats the state like it's the size of Rhode Island. Going to Cassadaga and Homestead in the same day? Before 5pm? Not at less than 100 mph.
Kind of like on Little House on the Prairie
, where they seemed to travel with ease to other towns despite usually going by horseback or wagon. They even had baseball games against Sleepy Eye despite that it's about 30 miles from Walnut Grove. And trips to Mankato- which is at least 50 miles away- was made to seem like just a short day trip.
Of course the landscape itself looked nothing like SW Minnesota (which is really flat).
