The lead story in H&G this week was As Seen on TV about the Chicago style interiors in the sitcom My Boys.

The show is about a sports writer living in Chicago and H&G spoke with both the set designer to find out what they included in the interiors to make it typically Chicago (fireplaces, molding, wood floors, built-ins) and a local newspaper writer to find out how well they did on the authenticity scale (pretty good, but where is the gaming console?).

Has anyone seen the show? Did they get Chicago apartment style right?

Also from H&G this week:
