The “Mama’s Family” Houses

Aug 4th, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

I have dreamed of writing this post for so long!  One of the locations I get asked about the most (I literally get emails and comments about it all the time!) is the house that portrayed Thelma Harper’s (Vicki Lawrence) residence during the first two seasons of Mama’s Family.  For those who aren’t familiar with the series and its locales, three different dwellings were actually used to represent the Harper family home throughout the show’s six-year run.  Two of them have long been well-documented online.  […]



The Campbell House from “Soap”

Aug 2nd, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

Something must be in the water, because this has been the most fortuitous week I’ve ever had when it comes to stalking.  Over the course of the past few days, not only have three of my most-wanted locations been found, but I was even granted access to the interior of one and, remarkably, it still looks exactly the same despite the fact that 27 years have passed since filming took place!  A post on that spot is coming soon.  Today though, I’m covering the Campbell […]



Carrie and Big’s Penthouse from the “Sex and the City” Movie

Jul 31st, 2017 | By | Category: Sex and the City Filming Locations

I know I am in the minority when I say that I like the 2008 Sex and the City movie.  Was it the greatest flick ever?  No.  But I did enjoy it.  Seeing it was like being with old friends again, friends I’d missed ever since the HBO television series went off the air in early 2004.  The more I watch it, the more it grows on me.  Though, again, I know I am in the minority.  One aspect of the movie that audiences did […]



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, […]



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 […]



The “Swingers” Party House

Jan 27th, 2017 | By | Category: Movie Locations

2016 was a great year for me as far as finding locations goes.  So many of my most-wanted unknown locales were identified.  Rod Tidwell’s home from Jerry Maguire, the Say Anything . . . amphitheatre, the Life Goes On house, the “Las Vegas” casino from the Season 4 episode of Beverly Hills, 90210 titled “And Did It . . . My Way” –  I could go on and on.  Another spot that I tracked down in 2016, but haven’t gotten around to blogging about until […]



The Burr House from “The Twilight Zone”

Oct 10th, 2016 | By | Category: TV Locations

After what amounted to a nearly two-year stalking hiatus, Mike, from MovieShotsLA, is finally back!  Let me reverse a bit and explain.  Over the past couple of years, Mike has been busy working in production (yep, he actually toils away on movie sets now!), which hasn’t left much time for tracking down locations.  I was having some trouble with a locale this past week, though, and on a whim decided to see if he could lend a hand.  Mike was game and, lo and behold, […]



Spencer’s House and Barn from “Pretty Little Liars”

Jan 14th, 2016 | By | Category: Pretty Little Liars Locations

Though all of the homes featured on Pretty Little Liars are pretty darn amazing design-wise, my personal favorite, hands-down, is the farm-like residence where Spencer Hastings (Troian Bellisario) and her family live.  So when I began tracking down the locales used in the pilot, which was shot in Vancouver, Spencer’s pad was at the top of my list of places to find.  And find it, I did.  While not much of the dwelling is visible from the street, sadly, I still had my good friend/fellow […]



Aria’s House from “Pretty Little Liars”

Jan 8th, 2016 | By | Category: Pretty Little Liars Locations

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – stalking begets stalking!  One of the Vancouver locations I was most interested in finding from the Pretty Little Liars pilot was the gorgeous Craftsman-style house where doe-eyed beauty Aria Montgomery (Lucy Hale) lived.  There was virtually nothing to go on, though – no address number, no street signs, no clues visible in the background.  So I put that hunt on the back burner and instead set my sights on tracking down the DiLaurentis/St. Germain home […]



Ali’s House from “Pretty Little Liars”

Jan 6th, 2016 | By | Category: Pretty Little Liars Locations

Pretty Little Liars will be returning to the small screen on January 12th and I could NOT be more excited!  Though I found the recent mid-season finale to be absolutely ridiculous, not to mention a total let-down (this was SO me and my mom while viewing it), to the point that I thought I might never watch again, I now find myself thrilled that new episodes are only a few days away!  As detailed in my February 2015 post titled “The Pretty Little Liars Guide […]
