Curriculum Resource: American Geography

OK, so maybe this one is a little dubious...but I thought it was fun.

Someone has come up with a map of the United States with each state represented by a TV show.  Alas, as a former DC resident, I have to point out that they did not include the capitol city, although perhaps that was due to the difficulty in choosing just one--what with 24, Bones, Get Smart, Murphy Brown, X-files, Commander in Chief, and West Wing (among others) all in the running.

So your media-fixated child could watch episodes from all these shows and do a report on what s/he found was different between all these states--and what was the same.  Actually, I would LOVE to read a report on something like that.  If anyone ever does anything like that, or hear of anyone who does, PLEASE let me know.
