I’ve made no secret of the fact that I bailed on the television series Glee shortly after the second part of the first season began airing. In my opinion, after starting out so strong, the show totally jumped the shark at that point. But because I love the Big Apple, I did make sure to tune in to the Season 2 episode titled “New York,” which was partially shot in Manhattan. One of the locations featured was the TKTS booth, or TKTS staircase, in Times […]
I stalk so many places, typically in quick succession, that oftentimes a few get lost in the shuffle. Such was the case with The Blind Donkey, an Old Town Pasadena whiskey bar that I visited back in April, shortly before the Grim Cheaper and I headed off to New York, and then promptly forgot about until this morning when I was going through my many stalking photographs. The site made an appearance during Season 4 of fave show Revenge. I still have yet to watch […]
One of the best things about starting this blog is the people it has put me in contact with – a myriad of fabulous individuals who share my unique affection for filming locations. One such fellow stalker, a New Yorker named Gary, has gifted me with countless Big Apple locales since we first started exchanging emails way back in 2010. Most of Gary’s knowledge comes from driving a cab for three years. The job took him all over NYC, made him familiar with its nooks […]
It appears that my posts have been heavy on filming location inspiration as of late. On Friday, I blogged about the Annie orphanage and the two buildings that it was modeled after. And here I am today with another spot that served as inspiration – this one Arnold’s Turtle Vegetarian Café, the eatery that Central Perk from Friends was based upon.
I first learned about the place in a 2015 The Huffington Post article titled “8 Behind-the-Scenes Stories You’ve Never Heard About Friends” written by Todd […]
Today’s location is a bit of a fail and a lucky twist all in one. My mom always says to trust in the universe – and she’s right. Things happen for a reason. This locale – easily one of my most-wanted ever – is proof of that. I am a pretty simple girl when it comes to most things, especially food. I’ll take McDonald’s over a fancy restaurant any day. So when Aleksandr Petrovsky (Mikhail Baryshnikov) and Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) dined at an […]
The Grim Cheaper and I have yet to watch the final season of White Collar, despite the fact that it aired almost a full two years ago. We became hooked on the USA series back in 2011 after I attended a screening/Q&A with the cast – so hooked that we were devastated when its cancellation was announced and could never bring ourselves to watch the final six episodes. Saying goodbye to loveable con man Neal Caffrey (Matt Bomer) and equally loveable FBI agent Peter Burke […]
My friend, fellow stalker Michael, is proving to be a true Brady Bunch virtuoso! Here he is yet again gifting us with yet another fabulous post about the 1969 sitcom – this one a round-up of nine different locales featured on the series! Take it away, Michael!
I know, I know. Yet another Brady guest post foisted upon you. I swear, I do know how to find non-Brady locations. However, I had compiled a bunch of Brady Bunch establishing shot sites that I hadn’t seen posted […]
The Grim Cheaper and I became obsessed with a myriad of new shows this year, namely Blindspot, Quantico (though I think that one may have already jumped the shark), The Family, Limitless, The Grinder (those last three have, sadly, all been cancelled), and Rosewood. Oh, how we love Rosewood. The police procedural perfectly mixes comedy with drama, the writing is witty and smart, and Morris Chestnut, who plays the endlessly positive and charming titular character Dr. Beaumont “Rosie” Rosewood, Jr. is perfection, as is […]
At the risk of this blog becoming solely Sex and the City-based, here I am yet again with yet another locale from the hit HBO series. For those of you non-SATC fans out there, don’t worry, I will be chronicling NYC sites from other productions soon. I will also be interspersing New York spots with ones in L.A., as well, to break up any sort of location monotony. For today, though, it’s all about SATC and SJP. I bring you Stuyvesant Square Park, a spot […]
The DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Torrance – South Bay from “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story”May 23rd, 2016 | By Lindsay | Category: TV Locations
I do not think O.J. Simpson is guilty. I know how incendiary that statement is and, up until a couple of years ago, had I heard it come out of someone else’s mouth I would have found the sentiment absurd. But in November 2012 I read O.J. Is Innocent and I Can Prove It, written by esteemed private investigator William C. Dear, and became convinced that the former footballer was actually innocent of the murders of Ronald Goldman and Nicole Simpson. Now before you jump […]
