Writing Can Be Murder

They say the devil’s in the details

I haven’t watched much HOUSE lately, but I do remember that it takes place in NJ. According to my sister, they don’t have anyone reading over the scripts that actually resides in NJ. She was so annoyed that they kept referring to the Division of Youth and Family Service as “D.Y.F.S”. Now if you live anywhere other than NJ, you’d think that Dee Why Eff Ess would make sense, but here, everyone knows it’s called “DieFiss” (DY FS).

Now in the writer’s defense, how the hell would you research that?

  1. You mean they don’t call it DIE-FYSS everywhere? Why not for heaven’s sake?

    It’s probably better they don’t try to be too ‘authentic New Jersey’ actually – all the shows that do that think we call our home state ‘Joisey’ anyway.
