Re: 1.19 - Knight Moves

It is an odd choice for a location isn’t it, I’ve no idea why it was chosen, but like I said above, I’ve always thought something was amiss with the roads at this location... and that's why. The photo you speak of is from an episode of ‘MaCgyver’, I can’t remember which one, once I found this locati...

Re: 2.10 - Knightmares

I’ve only just noticed simon_a6 ’s request (from way back in 2012 ) for this location, in the episode Michael Long’s address is given as 1834 Shoreborne Avenue, in reality however it is in fact 15630 Vanowen St. 15630 Vanowen St Van Nuys CA 34°11'37.60"N 118°28'25.65"W Windows match up. ht...

Re: 2.10 - Knightmares

I only watched this episode yesterday, afterwards I had a quick glimpse here (and on the Knight Rider Archives website) which showed that many of the locations for the episode had already been found. sgtpepper1138 was sooooooo close though, Frank Poole’s studio was actually just two streets to the n...

Re: 2.21 - Big Iron

Well I’m British so… I don’t think it’s a detention centre how you and I think of them, from what I understand Camp David (and the camp detention centres in general) are geared towards youth training and rehabilitation rather than being a detention centre in a ‘prison’ type context, so I suspect the...
