Mmm, masochism
As defined by watching any Supernatural episode set in Indiana, and not just covering my ears and going LA LA LA LA LA whenever it looks like they might mention a geographical location or community feature.

Dear Kripke Sam and Dean: that's a mighty long detour off I-90 you took there, to get to Muncie. 'Bout, oh, three hundred miles... pie in the tri-state area?

MUNCIE IS VAGUELY NEAR THE OHIO BORDER AND OTHERWISE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STATE. IT IS NOT PART OF ANY TRI-STATE AREA IN WHICH TO HAVE THE BEST PIE. It also has a population of around 70,000 and is not in the middle of nowhere; it's a major state-university city.

Sigh. Could be worse. You could be back tracking down Lilith as she chases an ice-cream truck through the sparkling cul-de-sacs of suburban New Harmony.

Which is as rural as you can possibly get, and has a population of 800 with no houses built after the turn of the previous century.

Admittedly, Quantum Leap will always have you beat with the cliff in freaking Crown Point, but you do keep trying, don't you.

(My sane grandmother was born in Muncie, in 1895; according to the family history her father was stricken with sciatica and moved to a warmer climate: Prosser, Washington).

This is why I cannot watch The Sentinel; ALLof the geographic nonsense is local to me. The stupid, it burns.

Julia, I prefer making up towns from the whole cloth rather than bending the space/time continuum for existing ones

Yeah, I have to wonder why they haven't done that - I can see why they use real names for flavor, but the only people who'd really appreciate said flavor... would know enough to headdesk over the details.
