What is the beautiful Chinese or Japanese building at about 12 minutes into the Ep?
It's where MK comes to have a fight with someone. It looks to be a permanent structure, with a lot of greenery around it. Sorry I can't do a screen

Also, where is that lake at the start, where the father and daughter are fishing, and the attack starts. I thought it was in the Batcave area, but I don't think there is a lake up there in the Hills.

I think the water falls at the beginning were on Universal Studios' backlot...I think that's where they filmed the waterfall scenes in "Not a Drop to Drink" as well.

As for the Chinese building, I've been looking for that for a long time. There is a clue in the scene where KITT pulls up. You can see a sign for the Hollywood Freeway in the background:

Yes I saw that sign too, as I have it on my TV right now (sadly cannot get a shot like you have done).
The only way I think it can be trace, is via those building behind.

However, this maybe similar to the fabled HOTRS shot - two locations, one shot! As the way it is filmed, they conveniently 'cut' between the two shorts, rather than pan across.

Incidentially, where is the waterfall used in 'Drop'? Tho a long time ago and Universal change their lots so many times, even the position of the Psycho House, that I wouldn't be surprised if it's long gone.

Bingo, found the water falls from an old photo.
This is it, tho where it is on bing maps is another thing entirely. I'll add this in Locations to Not a Drop...

Well I would, but it won't let me. Please add not a drop to drink with that detail.

I found the Chinese temple! Even though the scene was cut, where Michael and KITT pull up is the same place as the temple. The Shell gas station is still even there!

Good grief Joe, how on earth did you locate that?
I can't see any clues there at all. I'm not a local (from the UK), so wouldn't be able to spot much. But I can't see anything there at all.
Top marks.

I am going to watch that scene again, as on the DVD it looks like a huge place. The angles used. I guess that 'wall' behind the lady where you see MK's silohuette is where the gate is, so it blocks it and makes it look like a large place.

The diamond exchange featured at the end of this episode was actually filmed at the same place as Circus Major from "Circus Knights" - just facing the opposite direction. The building is across the street from the Barham parking lot (Circus Major) at Universal.
