CSI: Arden Villa

Post by Joe Huth » Thu Oct 12, 2006 4:33 pm

A long time ago, it was mentioned on this board that Arden Villa (the FLAG building) was in an episode of "CSI: Miami". Thanks to Netflix, I am able to confirm that Arden Villa did indeed appear in the first season episode "Just One Kiss". This is (to my knowledge) the most recent appearance of the villa, and only the second I believe since it was bought in 1997:

What's interesting about the villa in this episode is that, using CGI, the show made it appear that the villa is right next to the beach! This is NOT the case. In fact, where the "beach" is in the picture below, is actually a tennis court!

Another thing: see the building in the picture above and the smaller building in the picture below? This building is, in fact, NOT REAL. It's CGI also! Where that building stands in this episode is nothing but a grassy area at the real Arden Villa. Amazing, isnt it?

Enjoy!

No, the Batman house was different than this one. The Batman house can be seen in "Diamonds Arent a Girl's Best Friend".

If I remember, the Batman house burned down a year or two ago.
