Hello, new readers!

I haven't mentioned it here, but I'm now doing a monthly column based on this site for San Pedro Magazine (I don't think they have a website). This may or may not mean that I'll be updating more often. In the meantime, feel free to browse the archives of Pedro movies linked on the right, there, and leave comments or questions about the movies or the site.

Hay this is a cool project... did you know wikipedia has a San Pedro page that lists losts of movies shot there? But what about the TV shows... Like the A Team and Night Ryder and Macgyver

The problem with TV shows is that although they were filmed here, I don't know which episodes (and I don't really want to watch whole seasons of a show just to get a couple of screencaps.) If I know what episodes to look for, it becomes easier. I already have caps for an episode of Knight Rider, and there's an episode of Moonlighting that I'm gonna rent as soon as it comes out on dvd.

If you know any episode details, let me know!

Maybe you could train a monkey to notice when a scene is in San Pedro… Then get someone from UCLA to set you up in laboratory that has the proper equipment for doing those monkey experiments (Like the one in “Back to School” when Rodney Dangerfield is left alone with monkeys and they are suppose to watch something but then Rodney messes it all up by putting on pro wrestling and getting pizza… that Rodney Dangerfield what a geniuses)

Anyway… the Monkeys could have this button they press that will write a message to ASCII text file that has the information you need to find the scene… Perhaps the system could be more like TiVo… that way you wouldn’t need the ASCII text file….

Better yet get an infinite number of monkeys…. No that’s impractical… Oh… I know… higher a Mexican from the parking lot of Homedepot. Then make sure he is comfortable… you know get him some nachos and horchata, that way he will understand you are sensitive to his needs and this will build trust between you and he will want to do good work for you.

Then again you could just divide the work between you and your friends…

I have started my own news site for San Pedro. If you want to participate, I can add your blog to the news feeds and include your stories into the website.

What do you think?

I read your column in the August edition.

I am still hoping that you take a look at "Some Kind of Wonderful". I think the only scenes not shot in San Pedro were shot very close to the refinery, in Wilmington.

One bit of trivia that might find a good question is; how many commercials have been shot using the basketball court and hoop at Angel's Gate?

It is probably now the most filmed hoop not inside a building.

I love your site. I may be very late to the party and maybe you're not working it anymore...but didn't Gods and Monsters have a bar scene shot in Walkers? I think I got that from Michael Medved's book on movie locations. Anyway, great efforts here!

Thanks, Vix! I haven't seen Gods & Monsters (at least no the whole thing) so I don't recall a Walker's scene, but if Harry said so it's probably true. Fun fact: I was actually an uncredited consultant on that book! I didn't get anything but a free copy, but it was still cool. I am still "doing" this site, just not so often. (It never was that often to begin with actually.) I'll try to update before too long, but don't hold me to it. :)
