This purpose of this blog is to put together a virtual list/collection of memorable (if fleeting) references to the cities of Wilkes-Barre, PA or Scranton, PA in movies/TV/music/Broadway/books (in the script, setting, lyrics, etc).
We'd like to thank everyone for the overwhelming support and suggestions for the Entertainment blog. I'll continue adding these as blog entries as time permits.
The hit sci-fi TV show The Fringe recently wrapped its fifth and final season on FOX. Near the beginning of the third episode of the season (titled The Recordist, which originally aired on Friday, October 12th, 2012), Dr. Walter Bishop (John Noble) has the following exchange during a Coordinate Search in Northern Pennsylvania:
Walter, you alright?
I'm fairly certain I have a blood clot, because somebody wouldn't stop at Scranton to let me stretch my legs.
Much thanks to Elizabeth Davis for this reference.
