Boston Legal in New Orleans

Does anyone in New Orleans really talk like that? Because I've been there lots of time, and I've never heard it. Their judge and DA sounded like they were doing bad imitations of someone from My Cousin Vinny.

Oh, what the hell. Louisiana..., Alabama..., what's the difference? It's all Deliverance country.

I doubt anyone sounds like that.
I heard the judge do the "criminal" speech, got bored and turned backed to PBS. He was nowhere near the judge in "My cousin Vinnie"

"Frontline:The return of the Taliban" was on PBS. Musharaf has an interesting accent and it is authentic. ;-)

He can't touch Herman, that's for damn sure. As I said, a bad imitation of someone from My Cousin Vinny.

I was agreeing with you!

I should have said "You are right, he was nowhere near the judge in "My Cousin Vinny*"

(* you are correct here as well)

I was so mad!!! This is a great television show with an undoubtedly huge budget and they couldn't even find one single person with an authentic New Orleans accent?! I would have been happy if EITHER of them remotely sounded like someone from New Orleans. They both sounded like actors in a BAD local theater production of a Tennessee Williams play.

Then there was that farce they tried to call a New Orleans jazz club with Denny Crane onstage. It was so obviously someone's Walt Disney imagined version of a New Orleans club right down to all the wholesome, well-dressed patrons that I would have laughed if it hadn't been so sad.

Why they didn't use the episode as an excuse to shoot in New Orleans?
