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 […]

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 […]
I’ve never met a police procedural I didn’t like. When one centers around an insanely charming male lead who constantly (and comically) spars with his cynical female partner, it’s a guarantee it will make my top ten. Such was the case with the FOX drama Rosewood, which began airing in 2015. For those who don’t watch, the insanely charming male lead in this instance is Dr. Beaumont “Rosie” Rosewood, Jr. (Morris Chestnut) and his cynical partner is Det. Annalise Villa (Jaina Lee Ortiz). An additional […]
Did you know that there is a real The Simpsons house? Neither did I. For my birthday earlier this month, I told the Grim Cheaper that all I wanted to do was spend a couple of days at the Westin Lake Las Vegas Resort & Spa (which I blogged about here) in Henderson, Nevada. He granted my request and the two of us had a fabulous stay. While there, my friend, fellow stalker Owen, of the When Write Is Wrong blog, texted me to let […]
I always find it amusing when the exterior of a home is changed between a television show’s pilot and its subsequent episodes (which happens often, as I have mentioned numerous times on this site), but the interior is kept the same. Such was the case with the ranch-style residence where Sara (Paget Brewster, who I just realized played Kathy on Friends!) lives on Grandfathered. While watching the pilot, I recognized the dwelling used as Sara’s immediately as I had stalked and blogged about it way […]
The Meredith Vieira Show recently used my photograph of The Golden Girls house as part of their “Name That Hollywood Home” segment. It is a really fun bit, which you can watch by clicking above.
Some locations I spend ages upon ages trying to track down only to discover that, when finally found, they had been listed on another website all along. D’oh! Such was the case with today’s locale. I’ve mentioned before that Life Goes On is one of my all-time favorite television shows. It is pretty common knowledge amongst stalkers that the Cape Code-style home belonging to the Thatcher family – Drew (Bill Smitrovich), Libby (Patti LuPone), Corky (Chris Burke), Becca (Kellie Martin) and Paige (who was played […]
My latest Scene It Before post, about the mystery of the Fuller House house, is up on LAmag.com. You can read it here!
Don’t forget to read today’s Los Angeles magazine post – it’s about The Wonder Years neighborhood. My articles typically get published in the early afternoon hours.
I cannot express how disappointed I am that ABC cancelled Wicked City. I’ll admit that I was not very impressed with the series’ pilot episode, but I think that was mainly due to the fact that it was rather jarring to see Ed Westwick (one of my absolute faves!) portraying a serial killer. The second episode had me hooked, though, and by episode three I was full-blown obsessed. So it was quite a blow when the show was cancelled just three days after that episode […]
