St. Vincent Court from “The Mentalist”

Jan 28th, 2015 | By | Category: TV Locations

I cannot wait for the Secret L.A.-themed February issue of Los Angeles magazine to hit newsstands!  The City of Angels is chock full of tucked-away gems and I absolutely love discovering them.  The Grim Cheaper and I just stalked one, in fact, that is also a filming location – St. Vincent Court, which appeared in a recent episode of The Mentalist.  I first discovered the tiny and incredibly unique alleyway while on a Watson Adventures’ Downtown L.A. Movie Locations Scavenger Hunt with Mike, from MovieShotsLA, [...]



Burning Man’s House from “Major Crimes”

Jan 27th, 2015 | By | Category: TV Locations

My friend Owen and I share an uncanny synchronicity.  The other night I received an email from him which said the following, “837 Beacon Ave., L.A.  You may want to stalk this place after you watch the Season 7 premiere of Parks and Recreation.”  I had yet to see the episode, but immediately looked up the address via Google Street View and just about fell off my chair.  The very same house had also appeared in that week’s Major Crimes and I had made a [...]



South Fork Inn from “Revenge”

Jan 26th, 2015 | By | Category: TV Locations

Finding today’s location had me feeling like a complete moron.  Though my obsession with Revenge has waned in recent months (I have only watched three episodes from the current season), I remained hell-bent on tracking down the Colonial-style structure used in establishing shots of the South Fork Inn on the series.  I figured the location was most likely a private home and scoured the internet for months looking for it, all to no avail.  Then a couple of weeks ago, I decided to once again [...]



FBI Headquarters from “The Mentalist”

Jan 20th, 2015 | By | Category: TV Locations

Around this time last year, The Mentalist embarked on a huge change of course by having Patrick Jane (Simon Baker) and Teresa Lisbon (Robin Tunney) leave the Sacramento-based California Bureau of Investigation and then join the Austin, Texas branch of the FBI.  So, of course, that meant that I had a new location to find – the building used as FBI Headquarters.  I spent countless hours searching for the stunningly modern structure, though, but was never able to track it down.  For a while, I [...]



Hyatt Westlake Plaza from “The Karate Kid”

Jan 14th, 2015 | By | Category: 90210 & Beverly Hills, 90210 Filming Locations

2014 was definitely the year of The Karate Kid.  Not only did the flick turn thirty, but two of its missing locations were finally found – Mr. Miyagi’s house, which I blogged about here, and the fictional Encino Oaks Country Club, which, as it turns out, was actually the Hyatt Westlake Plaza hotel in Thousand Oaks.  The latter was only brought to my attention recently thanks to this June LA Weekly article.  So while I was in the area one (very rainy) day a couple [...]



New “L.A.” Mag Post – About the “How to Get Away with Murder” House

Dec 4th, 2014 | By | Category: TV Locations

Be sure to check out today’s Los Angeles magazine post – about Annalise’s house from How to Get Away with Murder.  My articles typically get published in the late morning/early afternoon hours.



Henry’s House from “Selfie”

Nov 19th, 2014 | By | Category: TV Locations

I was saddened to learn recently that both Selfie and A to Z – two of my favorite new shows of the fall season – had been cancelled.  If How to Get Away with Murder winds up on the chopping block next, the networks will be receiving a very strongly worded letter from me!  While Selfie is (or should I say “was”?) both hilariously written and fabulously acted, it is the architectural house where Henry Higgs (John Cho) lives on the series that has me [...]



Grayson Manor from “Revenge”

Nov 18th, 2014 | By | Category: TV Locations

My favorite location from the television series Revenge is Grayson Manor, the massive Hamptons estate that originally belonged to the dysfunctional Grayson family, but is currently home to Emily Thorne (Emily VanCamp).  It seems that pretty much everyone who watches the show is as obsessed with the house as I am and there are countless message boards dedicated to its design. While most commenters stipulate that the dwelling is not a real place, but a CGI-generated property created by Revenge production designers, that information is [...]



Porter’s Stowaway Tavern from “Revenge”

Nov 7th, 2014 | By | Category: TV Locations

The Grim Cheaper and I recently became obsessed with Revenge.  We randomly started watching the ABC series on Netflix one night in early September and could NOT stop.  For the next three weeks, the two of us obsessively binge-watched episodes, to the extent that I’m kind of surprised no one staged an intervention.  We headed to L.A. for a few days in the middle of our Revenge-fest and made sure to bring along our Apple TV so that our viewing would not be interrupted.  And [...]



Griffith Park from the “Full House” Opening Credits

Sep 26th, 2014 | By | Category: TV Locations

Growing up, I was obsessed with ABC’s TGIF series Full House.  Like obsessed!  Because my Uncle Tim lived with my family during my younger years, I related closely to the show – and thought it was insanely cool that I had my very own “Uncle Jesse.”  So I was thrilled when fellow stalker Michael contacted me recently to let me know that he was in the process of hunting down the park used in the opening credits of Full House’s first three seasons.  I had [...]
