    There was also an “Evening Shade,” which made me do a double take, as I fondly remember the quirky early-90s sitcom by that name.

    Except that the TV show was set in Evening Shade, Arkansas. (There’s also one in Missouri.)

    Yeah, I guess I remembered that. (Is there a real Evening Shade in Arkansas, or did they just gank the name and move it?)
