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 […]



Center Stage from “Vanderpump Rules”

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

Continuing on with our Vanderpump Rules tour of Lake Arrowhead, the Grim Cheaper and I headed over to Center Stage, the outdoor concert venue where Pierce the Arrow, Tom Sandoval’s band, played in the Season 2 episode titled “Only the Lonely.”  Thankfully, this was an easy find and stalk.  Not only was the name “Center Stage” shown in the episode, but I knew from my prior visits to the area that the arena was located somewhere in Lake Arrowhead Village, the city’s sprawling lakeside alpine-themed […]



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 […]
