Proof Arlington has gone down hill

They are filming Prison Break here in front of my work this morning and playing it off as Panama. I just thought thats funny...

But really, its pretty cool. This is one of the only shows I actually watch. Iv never missed a single episode. Only person I saw is Lincoln though, another chick who I didnt recognize... But cops wouldnt let me get too close to talk and ask questions. But I sneaked in for a few minutes and was 5 feet from Lincoln while he was sitting in his chair..

i dont know why, but is cool to me

where are they filming this at?

Never wrap it up, never pull out. Just grind up the morning after pill in her scrambled eggs at sunrise, she'll appreciate that you made her breakfast.

no shit, what the fuck? it's a diverse, old school city that is so far from being shit, it's unreal. it's been gradually on the up & up since the katrina cats split the scene, too. i went back to arlington to visit the parents for thanksgiving and i went to the parks mall....that place was actually decent to shop around in again...

hahahah that is funny. I've walked though Panama City before. I think the only difference is that Arlington has more white hookers.

wtf? Maybe you visited on a lucky day...anytime ive been to the parks mall its been far from "decent"...unless if drastic changes have happened in the past month. I can tell you they havent from everywhere else around here so i think you got lucky. Crime is up in arlington from what ive seen so there's nothing going up besides that.

I guess downtown Dallas is bad too. They've been filming here for the last 2 years. A lot of the scenes fron Chicago were actually Dallas.

it's mickey mouse land compared to most towns and citys is all I'm saying. the majority of my life was spent there and i've seen it go through its ups and downs, but it's definetely not 'Tha Cliff' or some shit like some people make it out to be lol. it's still a very nice place to raise a family.

true...not trying to talk it up to something it isnt. Its by no means Fair Park lol...just saying its not nice either. Grapevine is what I consider a nice place to raise a family or Coppell, not arlington though..but still better then ghetto places in dallas and even parts of Irving/GP can get worse then Arlington

It's cool because it has "hella hoes", and... let me get this straight.... "beer". Doesn't everywhere have beer?

I know there are dry areas in some places, but you're usually a mile or two away from somewhere to buy beer.

There are worse parts in other cities, but overall Arlington has gone way down hill over the past 20 years, and especially the last 10. Sucks when you can't park your ride and go in for a movie without taking a very real chance of getting your shit jacked. Sucks when my mom can't even put a bird feeder out in her front yard or a cactus on her porch without someone stealing it. Sucks when kids can't ride a bike to their friends house without pulling it inside. Sucks when a bunch of thugs stand in the middle of the street flashing gang signs at old people in their cars just trying to get home from church. I know it goes on elsewhere, and then some, but the point is that Arlington wasn't really like that back in the day.

Shit man, I don't know about you, but I'm always making special trips to Agtown for my beers and hoes. You just can't get good quality beers or hoes North of the Trinity anymore.

<----- I've been in some background work in 2 episodes in the past. The main set is up in Decatur, but they've done alot of filming in Dallas. How could you not know this?

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel, "Pick up your shovel, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land." Nearly 75 years ago, Roosevelt said,"Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a camel, this is the Promised Land." Now Obama has stolen your shovel..., taxed your asses, raised the price of camels and mortgaged the Promised Land!
