Our Own On TV Tonight

New episodes of "Bordertown: Laredo" air tonight.  Here's what one outsider had to say about the show:
There's the accents — professional Hispanic men who pronounce the word question “kwes-tee-yuhn” and guys with little accent at all, both toggling between English and Spanish to get the job done. The familiar streets full of hand-painted signs and corporate advertising, shiny new work trucks and carcachitas on their last legs, all of which work. Palm trees next to cedars next to tall skinny trees in the same front yard, enclosed by a cyclone fence and sharp municipal buildings serving the 10th largest city in Texas.
Happy watching.
