Colorado — Community
South Park is the other iconic Colorado TV show, but Community is just the best. It might be set at a community college in the fictional town of Greendale, but the show definitely has that Colorado pride. And Chevy Chase. And Donald Glover. And Jim Rash. The show is a gold mine. (In fact, in the 1800s, people mined for gold all over the state of Colorado.)
Connecticut — Gilmore Girls
What is there to say about Gilmore Girls other than the fact that it is one of the best shows ever, possibly the best mother-daughter relationship in TV history, and the most envy-worthy depiction of a charming small Connecticut town in existence. Who didn’t want to move to their own Stars Hollow after watching this show? No one, that’s who.
I would be remiss, however, if I didn’t mention my other favorite Connecticut show, Soap, the soap opera parody from the late ’70s that 100 percent holds up today.
Delaware — Steven Universe
Steven Universe takes place in a fictional town on the Delmarva Peninsula, which technically includes some of Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia, but we’re going to say Beach City is on the Delaware side.
I think it’s pretty safe to say that Steven Universe is the most imaginative show to take place in Delaware (The Pretenders is one of the only others). This Cartoon Network gem is sure to be a classic for years to come.
Florida — The Golden Girls
I mean, there’s no competition. Thank goodness liking The Golden Girls is cool now because if it wasn’t, I don’t what we’d do, you know, as a society. Honorable Flordia mentions go to Dexter, Miami Vice, and Coach.
Georgia — The Walking Dead
I remember watching the first episode of The Walking Dead and literally thinking to myself, “Thank goodness someone put zombies on TV.” It is possibly the grossest show on the list, and yes, that’s a compliment. Plus it’s got that whole southern Georgia charm thing going on.
Donald Glover’s new show, Atlanta, also deserves a mention here.
