Where You At?

Miguel Ferrer’s crazy Cajun cop from New Orleans in Broken Badges uses this expression. There are parts of Ferrer’s accent that are semi-authentic but his character and speaking are a hodge-podge of Louisiana stereotypes. He is able to sell it because he is Miguel Ferrer and he doesn’t give a shit. Cajuns aren’t from New Orleans. Nobody, and I mean nobody, ever uses the words “loup garou” and “Gris-Gris,” and Broken Badges had them in just one episode. It’s an entertaining show despite this one gripe. Too quirky for its own good and that happens a lot.
