I am not a particular "Knight Rider" fan, but I am very impressed with your outstanding location research.
We also detect locations used on our show, "Falcon Crest", one of the great 1980's nighttime drama series, in a particular section on our website ("Behind the Scenes": http://www.falconcrest.org/english/mast ... des/ai/bts
- among other background information).
Besides using locations in Northern California (San Francisco and the Napa & Sonoma Valleys), "Falcon Crest" also shot all over Los Angeles -- and also used the Arden Villa in Pasadena in a few episodes. It once posed as a mansion in Buenos Aires (episodes 69 and 70) and later portrayed a mansion in the fictional Tuscany Valley north of San Francisco (episode 212).
I visited the Arden Villa in 2004. In case you would like to have photos for specific purposes on the site, please let me know. I will be happy to help.
When you go thru our "Behind the Scenes" section, you might discover some locations that were also used on "Knight Rider", which might also be of interest to you.
I am looking for a particular building based in Greater Los Angeles. It was used on "Falcon Crest" as a courthouse (but does not necessarily have to be one in real life, of course) and on various other 1980's TV shows. I am attaching two screen grabs from 1989 episodes. I am not exactly sure if it was also featured on "Knight Rider", but if it was, you guys can certainly tell me. We had no luck detecting this building and have no clue in which part of L.A. it might be situated. In case you have any idea, please let me know. You seem so experienced tracking places down. I would be happy to read your comments.
By the way, one of our story editors and writers, Bill Schmidt, also wrote for "Knight Rider". As you can see, there are some parallels in our favorite shows although they are so very different.
Thanks a lot for your help!
