Woody’s Boathouse Restaurant from “Vanderpump Rules”

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

I had high hopes for a lot of rest, relaxation, and reading during my recent trip to Lake Arrowhead.  I wound up doing little else besides shopping and some Vanderpump Rules stalking, though, which, hey, I’m not gonna complain about!  One site I did not pinpoint the exact location of prior to actually setting foot in the lakeside city was the eatery where the Sur gang grabbed lunch in the Season 2 episode titled “Only the Lonely.”  I recognized from my prior visits to the […]



Papagayos Mexican Restaurant & Cantina from "Vanderpump Rules"

Apr 10th, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

It has been hot in Palm Springs lately.  Granted, it is always hot here, but the past few months have been unseasonably sweltering.  Two weeks ago, my parents, the Grim Cheaper and I decided to chill out a bit by heading to Lake Arrowhead for a short getaway.  Just prior to our trip, the GC and I started watching Vanderpump Rules over again from the beginning and, as fate would have it, one of the reality series’ Season 2 episodes was shot in the mountain […]



A Round-Up of “Big Little Lies” Filming Locations

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

I’ve decided to break with tradition a bit for this post.  My latest small screen obsession, Big Little Lies, came to an end on Sunday night and, though the finale was excellent, I am bummed to say the least that the HBO miniseries is now over.  During its seven-episode run, I tracked down most of the L.A.-area locales, as well as a few of the Monterey spots, featured in it and I thought it would be fun to chronicle them here.  Because I have not […]



Madeline Garden Bistro & Venue from “Mad Men”

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

I have had many different stalking notebooks over the years.  My latest is a gorgeous white Moleskin that I picked up during my Switzerland vacation back in June 2013.  One locale that has been listed in it since I started using it almost four years ago (it’s one of the very first entries), but had never been checked off until recently is Madeline Garden Bistro & Venue, which was featured in a Season 4 episode of Mad Men.  I had seen photos of the darling […]



Jane’s House from “Big Little Lies”

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

I am extremely biased when it comes to my former stomping ground of Pasadena, where I lived for close to 15 years.  Though I’ve heard on more than one occasion from L.A. denizens that the city is too suburban and too far removed from the hustle and bustle of urban life, I think it is one of the best places in the world and miss it so much at times it almost breaks my heart.  So whenever I hear of a movie or TV show […]



Madeline’s House from “Big Little Lies”

Mar 27th, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

Every once in a while a show comes along that absolutely grips me.  Granted, I watch – and get hooked on – a lot of series, but among them are certain standouts.  The Hills, Vanderpump Rules, and Beverly Hills, 90210 come to mind, though my obsession with the latter was admittedly next-level.  My latest fixation is Big Little Lies, the murder-mystery miniseries based on the book of the same name currently airing on HBO.  Besides a scintillating premise, well-drawn characters, and a dynamic timeline (the […]



The Villa Del Sol from “Rosewood”

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

The Baader-Meinhof Phenomenon is a term used to describe the experience of coming across an obscure word, thing, or piece of information for the first time and then subsequently happening upon references to that same word, thing, or piece of information on a regular basis.  I had never heard of it until fellow stalker/guest poster extraordinaire Michael (you can read the many articles he has written for IAMNOTASTALKER here) mentioned it to me while discussing Haskell’s Ice Cream Hut from The Brady Bunch, a locale […]



Palindrome Healing Center from “Flaked”

Mar 20th, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

Some images just stay with you.  When I came across these MLS photos of a Venice Beach home on Curbed Los Angeles back in 2008, I practically started drooling and the words “real estate porn” immediately came to mind.  The pictures of the dramatically unique Moroccan-inspired dwelling, especially the ones of the meandering pool, seared themselves into my brain.  So I was thrilled to spot the pad when scanning through episodes of Flaked early last year while writing this Los Angeles magazine post about the […]



The “Last Man Standing” House

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

The Grim Cheaper and I watch a lot of TV.  Like a lot.  So I am always surprised when I receive an email from a reader asking about a location from a show I am not familiar with.  Such was the case in January, when fellow stalker Marjorie reached out to ask for my assistance in tracking down the house where the Baxter family lives on Last Man Standing.  Though I had never seen even one episode of the CBS series, I am always up […]



The Tate Mansion from “Soap”

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

I have a pretty amazing memory, especially when it comes to things most people find useless, such as filming locations and movie quotes.  I’m like a vault.  Or an elephant.  Once something enters my brain, it locks in and I don’t forget it.  So I was shocked when I received an email a couple of weeks back from a fellow stalker named Andrew who wanted some assistance in tracking down the mansion belonging to the Tate family on Soap.  My parents and I watched the […]
