    Great list Hink! King of the Hill has a lot of references to planning and zoning. The episode "Square-Footed Monster" is full of planning issues, including McMansions, Noise Violations and Eminent Domain. There are other episodes as well. Definitely a show where planning and zoning is showed in a fairly realistic light.

    My favorite Mark Brendanawicz quote is when he was presenting at a meeting describing the proposed park site. I'm assuming he isn't AICP... "This property consists of a rectangular parcel with excellent drainage. Any questions?"
