Daisie Villa’s Houseboat from “Rosewood”

Jun 23rd, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

While I love the ocean, the thought of living on a houseboat has never appealed to me – that is until I caught a glimpse of the idyllic floating home belonging to Daisie Villa (Lisa Vidal) on the recently cancelled Fox procedural Rosewood.  I became obsessed with the charming structure upon first seeing it in the Season 1 episode titled “Bloodhunt and Beats,” which aired in November 2015,  and immediately attempted to track it down.  I was unsuccessful in the hunt, though, and started to […]



The Los Angeles Marriott Burbank Airport Hotel from “The Office”

Jun 21st, 2017 | By | Category: The Office Filming Locations

I typically have the memory of an elephant, but up until the Grim Cheaper and I recently started re-watching The Office over again from the beginning, I had honestly forgotten what a great show it is.  I had also forgotten that several locations from it remain unknown and/or undocumented.  One that I recognized immediately during our re-watch was the supposed Philadelphia hotel where Michael Scott (Steve Carell), Dwight Schrute (Rainn Wilson), and Jim Halpert (John Krasinski) stayed in Season 3’s “The Convention.”

Filming of the episode […]



Old Tony’s on the Pier from "The O.C."

Jun 7th, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

The Baader-Meinhof phenomenon has been in full effect lately when it comes to Old Tony’s on the Pier, a Redondo Beach restaurant I stalked way back in January 2012 with my good friend Mike (he provided many of the images in this post), but have yet to blog about.  First, Alison Martino, founder of the fabulous Vintage Los Angeles Facebook page, posted some photos of the nautical-themed eatery on her Instagram in May.  Then last week, a link to an L.A. magazine article titled “100 […]



Rose Towers from “CSI: Cyber”

May 26th, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

Spanish-style courtyard apartment complexes are my jam (as evidenced here, here, here, here, here, here, and here).  One that I became especially enamored of a little over a year ago was the pink-hued building where Tristan Jenkins (fave actor Matt Lanter) lived on the Season 2 episode of CSI: Cyber titled “Corrupted Memory.”  While I don’t typically watch CSI: Cyber, when I learned that ML would be guest-starring I made sure to tune in – and was not disappointed.  Not only did Matt do a […]



Descanso Beach Club from “NCIS”

May 24th, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

My family has long had a love affair with Catalina, the idyllic island located about 22 miles southwest of Los Angeles.  One of our favorite spots to grab lunch or an evening cocktail while there is Descanso Beach Club, a toes-in-the-sand restaurant situated along the shore of Descanso Bay.  I have visited the site more times than I can count over the years, but had no idea it was a filming location.  So I was thrilled when I spotted it while re-watching an early episode […]



East Miami Police Department from “Rosewood”

May 19th, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

I was saddened to learn of the cancellation of Rosewood last week.  Yes, I said in recent posts (here and here) that the show had jumped the shark, but I was holding out hope that it would return strong for a third season.  Unfortunately, as Fox announced last Tuesday, that is not to be.  Even worse, because the series was given the ax after the Season 2 finale had already aired, there will not be closure to any of the main storylines, namely the will-they-or-won’t-they […]



The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library from “Veep”

May 15th, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

I don’t do museums, as many of my longtime readers well know.  One that I did partake of and thoroughly enjoy, though, was The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, which I visited with my parents and the Grim Cheaper waaaay back in 2005 (so long ago that when I went looking for my photos of it to post here, I wasn’t sure if they were film or digital!).  Surprisingly (to me, at least), I was thoroughly fascinated and engaged while venturing through the […]



The “All of My Heart” Farmhouse

May 12th, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

It seems that every time I turn around lately, I come across someone who is obsessed with Hallmark Channel made-for-television movies. First it was my grandma, who couldn’t stop talking about them at Christmas.  Around that same time, I started hearing about the flicks from my uncle’s girlfriend, who binge-watches them like crazy, much to the chagrin of my uncle (though he does do some amazingly funny recaps – according to him, the premises are all pretty much exactly the same). Next it was my […]



Soup Burg from “Sex and the City”

May 10th, 2017 | By | Category: Sex and the City Filming Locations

I am the first to admit that I get fixated on the most random things.  A few years back, I became obsessed with identifying the diner featured at the very end of the Season 1 episode of Sex and the City titled “Models and Mortals.”  Though the eatery only appeared briefly, I was consumed with tracking it down.  What can I say?  I love a good diner.  It took some legwork to find the place, but find it, I did.  Sadly, by that time, Soup […]



Guasti Villa from “Veep”

May 5th, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

It’s no secret how much I hate incorrect filming location information.  But sometimes errant info can lead to good things.  Case in point – back in 2012, an article was published about the Los Angeles locales featured in The Artist.  One of the sites detailed was Guasti Villa, aka Busby Berkeley’s former Jefferson Park mansion, which was said to have masked as the home of Peppy Miller (Bérénice Bejo) in the flick.  (I cannot for the life of me remember what publication featured the article, […]
