If I start watching Grimm I’m going to be so distracted by all the locations I recognize. I’m two minutes into the pilot and I can tell you they’re on NW 10th and Flanders. Which happens to be where my sister currently works which is how I spotted it immediately.
I’m from New England, where little filming occurs. I’m not used to recognizing locations because I’ve been there. I can tell you Dean and Sam go to a motel where Juliette and Lassie staked out some parolees who kidnapped Shawn and Gus. And I can tell you the Rosewood Grill is really Luke’s Diner. And the Royal Diner is down the street from MacLaren’s Pub. (Because I’ve got a little Rainman going on.) But almost never can I tell you on sight where a location is. (Scenes in both The Box and Ghosts of Girlfriends Past where filmed at the Crane Estate in Ipswich, Mass.)
Therefore if I watch Grimm, I will be insufferable with all my newly gained Portland knowledge.
Maybe only if I watch it with other people… because I sort of really want to test my memory!
Also, I should probably share, today I watched a little of the filming of a scene for an upcoming episode.
As you already know, I don’t watch this show. I only know that actress because she played “Dylan” on QuarterLife. In fact, while trying to dredge up her name from the pits of my memory, I could only come up with “Dylan”.
