The Haunted House from “The Goldbergs”

Oct 6th, 2017 | By | Category: Haunted Hollywood, TV Locations

There’s literally nothing better than being scared at Halloween!  In my mind, at least.  Terrifying movies?  Yes!  Spooky decorations?  Yes!  Haunted houses?  Yaaaas!  Especially haunted houses!  Too bad Adam F. Goldberg (Sean Giambrone) doesn’t share my sentiment.  In the Season 3 episode of The Goldbergs titled “Couples Costume,” the teen only begrudgingly visits a haunted house on All Hallows’ Eve in the hopes of impressing his girlfriend, Dana Caldwell (Natalie Alyn Lind), after his sister and brother, Erica (Hayley Orrantia) and Barry (Troy Gentile), tell […]



Bette Davis’ House from “Feud”

Sep 29th, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

My favorite Big Little Lies quote belongs to Madeline Martha Mackenzie (Reese Witherspoon), who, in response to Celeste Wright (Nicole Kidman) advising her to let something go, quips, “I love my grudges.  I tend to them like little pets.”  A woman after my own heart, I swear!  Oh yes, I am a definite grudge-holder.  So I really should have loved Ryan Murphy’s 2017 anthology series Feud, the first season of which detailed the longtime rivalry between actresses Bette Davis and Joan Crawford (played by Susan […]



Dana’s House from “The Goldbergs”

Sep 25th, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

Brenda and Dylan.  Winnie and Kevin.  Rachel and Joey.  Adam and Dana.  All TV couples who didn’t wind up together, but who, in my never-to-be-humble opinion, really should have.  Though, since The Goldbergs is still on the air, I guess there’s still hope for the latter two.  I mean, any romance that starts out with an ‘80s movie re-creation has to end well, right?  It would just be sacrilege otherwise!  For those who don’t watch the popular ABC series, when tween Adam Goldberg (Sam Giambrone) […]



The Former Site of the “Eight Is Enough” House

Sep 22nd, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

One of my biggest filming location pet peeves is when an unfound spot from an old movie or television show is explained away as having been demolished without any evidence to support that allegation.  Like Whitney Houston, I wanna see the receipts!  So when I recently came across an Eight Is Enough message board in which several commenters mentioned that the home where the Bradford family lived on the popular ABC series had been torn down years back, I was not quick to believe the […]



The Francis F. Palmer House from “Gossip Girl”

Sep 1st, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

A Gossip Girl tour of New York wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Constance Billard School for Girls/St. Jude’s School for Boys, the elite preparatory academy attended by Serena van der Woodsen (Blake Lively), Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester), Chuck Bass (Ed Westwick), and the rest of “Manhattan’s elite” teenage set on the CW series.  The only problem is that four different locations (yes, four!) actually portrayed the learning institution.  I visited (and blogged about) the most recognizable of the bunch, the Museum of the […]



The Empire Hotel from “Gossip Girl”

Aug 30th, 2017 | By | Category: Sex and the City Filming Locations

My friend Mikey, from the Mike the Fanboy website, always teases me for being a huge fan of “Hollywood randoms,” i.e. stars he has never heard of.  One of my favorites of the so-called randoms is Ed Westwick, who played Chuck Bass on Gossip Girl.  Out of all the male TV characters I’ve ever come across, Chuck is hands-down my most-loved.  (Jack Donaghy from 30 Rock runs a close second.)  The Grim Cheaper and I were obsessed with Gossip Girl when it was on the […]



The Cunningham House from “Happy Days”

Aug 25th, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

I consider myself a seasoned stalker.  I think most would agree.  Somehow though, until last month, I had never stalked one of the most iconic homes in television history.  I am talking about the Cunningham residence from Happy Days.  I did not even realize my colossal blunder until I was contacted by The Meredith Vieira Show about using some of my photographs in a segment they were running called “Name That Hollywood Home” last spring.  Producers were interested in utilizing a pic featured in my […]



Brand Library from “Scorpion”

Aug 21st, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

I am probably the only person you will ever hear say this, but I absolutely loved working as a background actor in Hollywood.  Sure, the hours were long and unpredictable and the work tedious and repetitive, but the opportunities I was afforded to be up-close-and-personal with the inner workings of movie and television production were unparalleled.  I reveled in observing everything from the rehearsal process to the stars’ make-up application to the Steadicam operators’ choreographed movements.  I also got to learn about and was granted […]



Happy Trails Catering from “Big Little Lies”

Aug 14th, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

As you probably noticed, I was unexpectedly MIA for most of last week.  My dad had an experimental five-day procedure done at a hospital in Orange County, so my family and I spent the week by his side.  I fully intended to write new content while there, but the hospital Wi-Fi wasn’t really amenable to that.  (What is it with hospital Wi-Fi, by the way?  I’ve literally never encountered one even halfway decent!)  But I am finally home and ready to get back to my […]



Scorpion Headquarters from “Scorpion”

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

The Grim Cheaper and I tend to get hooked on a new series every summer.  Well, truth be told, we get hooked on new series all throughout the year (The Goldbergs, Veep, and Vanderpump Rules come to mind).  But during the summer months, we typically pick out a new-to-us show and binge-watch it nightly to avoid dreaded reruns.  In 2014, that show was Revenge.  In 2015, Scandal.  Last year, it was Suits.  And this year, it’s Scorpion, the CBS procedural that focuses on a group […]
