Ronnie and Amber’s House from “Modern Family”

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

This season of Modern Family brought to life a storyline that is basically my worst fear – nightmare neighbors.  Poor Phil (Ty Burrell) and Claire Dunphy (Julie Bowen) had their tranquility disturbed in the episode titled “Won’t You Be Our Neighbor” when loudmouth medicinal marijuana dealer Ronnie LaFontaine (Steve Zahn), his wife, Amber (Andrea Anders), and their two children moved in next door.  It’s been a horrific (and rather comical) ordeal ever since, with antics including a dry-docked boat parked in the driveway, an invitation [...]



The “Pretty Little Liars” Guide to Warner Bros. Studio

Feb 25th, 2015 | By | Category: TV Locations

My name is Lindsay Blake and I am a Pretty Little Liars addict.  I started watching The CW series on Netflix while the Grim Cheaper was away on a weeklong business trip last year and it was not long before I was utterly and totally hooked.  I’m no longer ashamed to admit it, either.  PLL is a great show.  There is good news and bad news about its filming locations, though.  The bad news first.  Production hardly ever – and I mean like ever – [...]



The Tonga Room & Hurricane Bar from "The Bachelor"

Feb 23rd, 2015 | By | Category: TV Locations

This season of The Bachelor has been one for the record books!  I don’t think there has ever been a prior season featuring so many crazy contestants – and for The Bachelor, that’s really saying something.  Sure there are a few sane women in the bunch (Whitney, Carly and Becca), but for the most part each episode is like a parade of crazy – and I am loving every minute of it!   The Grim Cheaper and I just visited a location from a past season [...]



The Cat & Fiddle

Feb 10th, 2015 | By | Category: TV Locations

We’ll always have the Cat & Fiddle.  Or so Angelinos thought.  Sadly, the historic restaurant closed its doors this past December.  When news of the impending shuttering hit the blogosphere in late October, I became desperate to stalk the eatery – especially once I read via several online news outlets that it had appeared in Casablanca (though, due to the fact that the 1942 classic was filmed pretty much solely at Warner Bros. Studios, I had my doubts as to the authenticity of the claims).  [...]



The Bel Age Hotel from “Beverly Hills, 90210″

Feb 9th, 2015 | By | Category: 90210 & Beverly Hills, 90210 Filming Locations

Ah, change.  It’s one of my least favorite things, especially when it comes to filming locations.  So I was devastated when the Wyndham Bel Age Hotel, one of the most prominent locations from Beverly Hills, 90210, closed in 2007 to undergo a huge renovation and was renamed The London West Hollywood.  I had been to the Bel Age prior to its closure, but failed to take any photographs of the place.  I was so incredibly excited to be there that the visit is seared into [...]



Huron Substation from “NCIS: New Orleans”

Feb 3rd, 2015 | By | Category: TV Locations

I have been a fan of the television show NCIS ever since it premiered in 2003.  While I never got into its 2009 spin-off, NCIS: LA, the Grim Cheaper and I recently caught the backdoor pilots for the series’ most recent offshoot, NCIS: New Orleans, and absolutely loved them.  I was also thrilled while watching to recognize the location used as the NCIS New Orleans field office in the episodes – it’s actually the Huron Substation located in Los Angeles’ Cypress Park.  Mike, from MovieShotsLA, [...]



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 [...]
