The “Relativity” House

May 14th, 2014 | By | Category: TV Locations

Back in 1996, the Bedford Falls Company, the production company behind fave show My So-Called Life, debuted a new dramedy named Relativity.  I was hooked on the series from the get-go.  Sadly, it suffered the same fate as My So-Called Life and was cancelled after a solitary season.  Unlike MSCL, though, which prospered in syndication, Relativity was not really ever heard from again.  So when I recently found some episodes online, I just about flipped my lid.  The Grim Cheaper happened to be out of […]



The “Jack and Jill” House

This past Sunday afternoon, while doing some stalking in the Pacific Palisades area, I dragged the Grim Cheaper over to Amalfi Drive to stalk the main house used in the 2011 movie Jack and Jill.  And I should mention here that while I did not have very high hopes for Jack and Jill before watching it a couple of weeks ago, both the GC and I ended up really enjoying it.  Granted, it is by no means a classic, nor will it be winning any […]

The “If U Seek Amy” House

Apr 7th, 2009 | By | Category: This and That

A few weeks ago, Miss Britney Spears debuted her new video for the third single off her Circus  album, the controversially titled “If U Seek Amy”.  So, of course, I just had to watch!  I was actually pretty excited about this video, as many critics were proclaiming that the old Britney was finally back.  I was hoping for something along the lines of the Britney videos of old featuring adorable outfits, cute hairdos, and choreographed pop dances that high school girls everywhere (and – who am I kidding – I) would be copying.   But, […]
