Frank and Claire’s Townhouse from “House of Cards”

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

It is a rare occasion for me to lay eyes on a Hollywood-designed set and not immediately want to move in.  But such was the case with the townhouse belonging to Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) and his wife, Claire (Robin Wright), on the Netflix series House of Cards.  While I love the handsome brick exterior of the politico couple’s pad (who wouldn’t?), the inside is just a bit too cold and a bit too stark for my tastes.  Though undeniably beautiful, Frank and Claire’s décor […]



Freddy’s BBQ Joint from “House of Cards”

Jul 17th, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

I have never been a fan of dark TV shows or movies.  Surprising, I know, considering my love for true crime and all podcasts, documentaries and news stories related to the subject.  But when it comes to fictional TV and movie watching, I prefer a much lighter fare.  One exception to this rule is House of Cards, which the Grim Cheaper and I got really into a couple of summers ago.  The Netflix original series is undeniably dark and exceptionally heavy, but the smart writing, […]



The Old Place from “Scorpion”

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

There are some spots in L.A. that I miss more than others.  The Old Place pretty much tops that list.  I first stalked the rustic eatery, tucked away on a forested road in the picturesque mountain town of Cornell, in 2011 and was immediately smitten.  Because the restaurant is only open Thursday through Sunday and because I don’t get out to the Cornell area very often since moving to Palm Springs, I haven’t been able to frequent it as much as I’d like.  So I […]



Off Limits Cocktail Lounge from “Rosewood”

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

I’m still in quite a bit of shock – not to mention completely heartbroken – over the recent cancellation of Rosewood.  The cancellation was especially stinging being that there are a couple of locations from the former Fox series that I stalked, but have yet to blog about – namely Off Limits cocktail lounge, the supposed Miami-area dive-y bar that Dr. Beaumont ‘Rosie’ Rosewood, Jr. (Morris Chestnut) and partner Det. Annalise Villa (Jaina Lee Ortiz) regularly frequented.  In reality, the watering hole (which, like Rosewood, […]



The Fourth of July Parade Location from “The Wonder Years” Finale

Jul 3rd, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

Americans nationwide will be gathering together tomorrow to celebrate the birth of our country.  So what better time than today to write about a location related to the holiday?  Back in late 2015, I stalked the street where Kevin Arnold (Fred Savage) and his family and friends attended a July 4th parade in the final episode of The Wonder Years, Season 6’s “Independence Day.”  Filming of the nostalgic – and, let’s face it, incredibly sad – scene, which was the second to last of the […]



The Gilmore Mansion from “Gilmore Girls”

Jun 28th, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

While I realize this may be considered blasphemy in some circles, I have never really watched Gilmore Girls.  On paper, the show definitely looks like something that would appeal to me, but for whatever reason, I failed to tune in when it originally started airing in 2000.  At the behest of fellow stalker/Gilmore Girls aficionado Chas, from the It’s Filmed There website, I finally viewed six or so episodes early last year, but the series just didn’t hook me.  Don’t get me wrong – GG […]



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 […]
