Last week IFC announced that Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein would be releasing Portlandia: A Guide for Visitors this November. It's the perfect idea for a show in which the town itself is such an important character: a more perfect vision of Portland, with a cool mayor, 100 percent employment, and hipster customs that seem more like local law—especially bicycle rights. And this guidebook might be our chance to find out where Ronald D. Moore of Battlestar Galactica fame lives so that we can visit him ourselves.

Inspired by the news, we've been thinking about some other fictional TV towns that we wouldn't mind visiting, even those without a decent Feminist Bookstore.
