Poor Schenectady. They felt so screwed when it seemed the producers of “The Place Beyond the Pines” — a film that was partially shot in the city — would not show them some Hollywood love with a movie premier. It looks like it’s all worked out — but who the hell cares about that when Schenectady was prominently featured in a recent episode of Archer on FX. THAT is a big deal.
And not just Schenectady, either. Much of the story take place on the Northway and Thruway — and Coxsackie and Catskill are also name-dropped.
Sorry I can’t show the whole episode. Maybe you could buy it or something if you’d like to see it.
