CBS' "New Adventures of Old Christine" Discovers the L.A. Subway
Of course, this wasn't shot in the real Los Angeles Metro Red Line subway... but Wednesday's episode of CBS' "New Adventures of Old Christine" took place there -- in the process, helping spread the word to the rest of the world that, yes, L.A. does have public transportation. (It also comes on the heels of another CBS show, "The Amazing Race," which also featured folks taking the L.A. Metro).
Here's a synopsis for the episode: "In an attempt to teach Ritchie's class some street smarts, Christine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) encourages Principal Nunley to have them take the subway on a field trip, but she ends up being stranded at the station and has her own street smarts put to the test." (Why is that such a big deal? I guess I'll have to watch the full episode to understand.)
