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, […]



Huntington Beach Central Library and Cultural Center from “Rosewood”

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

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – stalking begets stalking.  While out and about sightseeing filming locales in Orange County last month, the Grim Cheaper and I struck up a conversation with a friendly local couple who informed us that fave show Rosewood (well, it was a fave show until it jumped the shark recently) had just done some shooting at the Huntington Beach Central Library and Cultural Center.  So we headed right on over there and were both shocked at what […]



June’s House from “White Collar”

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

Sometimes the work and detail that go into creating certain locations absolutely boggles my mind.  Case in point – the house belonging to June (Diahann Carroll) on the USA series White Collar.  The imposing residence is actually an amalgamation of three different places – a spectacular estate on New York’s Upper West Side, the rooftop terrace of an ornate Murray Hill building, and a studio-built set.  While in Manhattan last April, I stalked the estate, known in real life as the Schinasi Mansion, which is […]



The Waterfront Beach Resort from “Rosewood”

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

It is such a shame when a favorite show jumps the shark.  If its latest episode, titled “Amparo & the American Dream,” is any indication, that fate seems to have befallen Rosewood, the FOX procedural currently in its second season.  While I was all in with the recent storyline centering around Captain Ryan Slade (Eddie Cibrian) donating his kidney to Dr. Beaumont “Rosie” Rosewood, Jr. (Morris Chestnut) and the complications that arose from that, as soon as the focus shifted to Slade possibly being a […]



Studio Gate 3 from the “Feud” “Hollywood Drive” Promo

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

It will probably come as a shock to most readers that I don’t know a lot about Old Hollywood.  Sure, I am well-versed in all things Marilyn Monroe and have stalked my fair share of noir locations, but on the whole, I’d say I’m pretty lacking in knowledge about the Tinseltown of yesteryear.  I am always itching to learn more, though.  So I was thrilled when it was announced that the inaugural season of Ryan Murphy’s new anthology series Feud was tackling the decades-long discord […]
