THIS POST MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS FOR SEASON 8 PREMIERE OF "PSYCH". Do not read on, or view photos if you do not want to know anything prior to seeing the episode.
The cast & crew for the current longest runnng show on the USA Network, the comedy-drama crime show "Psych" are back to work on their 8th season already.
I caught up to them filming on 2 different occasions in their opening week.
First I caught them just a block off of Sunset Beach in Vancouver filming scenes that included Lassie (Timothy Omundson) at an apartment. At the time, I thought very little of the apartment till I stumbled across the trailers & found a trailer for....MARLOWE. This got me thinking, is this where the Lassiter-Viccellio love nest is? Only time will tell.
This past week USA Network officially confirmed Marlow weould be back in season 8 for a guest role, as well as the Cary Elwes character Pierre Despereaux.
A few days later, I was told about them being in New Westminster. After a long exhaustive game of "follow the bread crumbs" I found the set in uptown New West, a quiet neighbourhood of above average value houses.
On set that day, I saw Shawn & Gus (James Roday & Dule Hill) along with Juliet (Maggie Lawson). I also saw another cast member there. Unfortunately, I have no photos of this cast member on set at this time, because the specific person in question asked me not to post photos of them there that day, as it was a plot point that hasnt come up yet (and I instantly knew this person was right, having watched the show enough). Also on set on this day was, the blueberry. The scenes were all indoors while I was there, so I didnt see any filming...but here is my 1st pics of Psych cast & crew back at work for the 8th & likely final season (if James Roday & Dule Hill were telling it like it is at the Upfronts last week)..
This past weekend I stayed out overnight for a shoot of the major motion picture "Robocop". A remake of the 1980s classic starring Peter Weller.
With "The Killing" star Joel Kinnaman now at the helm, the remake recently moved production to Vancouver to film some scenes.
Originally shot mostly in Toronto & Hamilton this past summer/fall, production moved to Vancouver partly to accomodate the star Joel Kinnaman, as he is still actively filming The Killing here in Vancouver, and partly because the people in charge felt they werent getting everything they hoped for out of Toronto. The experience & skill of Vancouver won out. The production moved to Vancouver for a 16 day shoot of new scenes.
In this video we see Robocop (I believe the stunt man did this take...hard to tell when they were both in the suit which 1 is which) driving along the streets of Detroit coming in towards the headquarters of the fictitious Omnicorp.
EDIT (May 20, 2013)- As I promised in the original posting of this blog, there was another video of Robocop drawing his gun for a take.
Here it is.
Over the few weeks I have caught up with the filming for season 2 of the AMC crime drama "The Killing" on a few occasions.
If you read my blog with any level of regularness (is that a word? well, it is now) you likely saw my blog awhile ago with my 1st photos of Joel Kinnaman on set with his new partner Gregg Henry as they take off in a car chase here http://canadagraphs.weebly.com/6/post/2013/04/amc-critically-acclaimed-drama-the-killing-is-filming-its-3rd-season-despite-originally-being-canceled-giving-countless-other-shows-hope-of-a-resurrection.html
I've caught up with Holder a couple other times since then and once before then.
First time was in March.
I actually saw Mireille Enos very breifly that day at a scene at a school yard. Shortly after her scene, they changed locations to an long overpass that goes overtop of railroad tracks. There I ran into Joel Kinnaman for the 1st time and was taken aback by the very professional looking attire Mr. Holder was wearing. Gone was his trademark hoodies, replaced by a suit & trenchcoat.
More recently, in the last week of April I found them 2 days in a row.
The 1st was a night scene of Holder in his more usual attire of a hoodie & driving with a female teenage street kid that he meets up with under an overpass. Because of how dark it was, I really didnt get much in the way of photos that night. Took a few of the fake rain they were making by having a guy standing ontop of the overpass spraying down to the street they were filming on with a firehose.
The next day however, I found Joel & Mireille on set between scenes hanging out. While I again was unable to see much of the actual scene, since they had lots of skrims around the car they were filming in to block out the very sunny weather we were having that day, I did manage quite a few pics of the stars hanging out chatting & sharing some laughs.
A couple days ago I caught the crew filming near my house. This time, no cast I was familiar with. The scene consisted of 2 street kids having a conversation at the edge of an alley with 1 telling the other to be carefull out there.
Currently, Joel's upcoming feature film "Robocop" a reboot of the 1980s classic is doing some shooting in Vancouver. I caught up with Joel at that set Friday night, and will post some pics from that set as well later this week. In the mean time, here is the handful of pics I have from the recent shoots for "The Killing"
Season 3 of The Killing will begin airing on AMC starting June 2nd
EDIT - 1 of the street kids in the scene I alluded to is "Bullet" played by Bex Taylor-Klaus
You can find more on her character & other characters for season 3 here
THIS BLOG POST CONTAINTS POSSIBLE SPOILERS FOR THE MUSICAL EPISODE OF "PSYCH". Do not continue reading or viewing the photos if you dont want to know anything prior to the episode.
This week season EIGHT of the hit USA Netowrk comedy/drama "Psych" started up.
With season 7 currently airing in the U.S. I decided I should get this long overdue & almost forgotten set of photos of a guest star they had here for their large 2 part musical episode that will air later this year.
So who is the mystery returnee?
Yes, Ally Sheedy was back in Vancouver last year to film scenes as the insanely dangerous Yang. I caught her at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre preparing for a scene, but of course didnt get to see her film the scene as it was indoors. A few days later I ran into her on her way to a get together a few of the cast members had.
Psych airs Wednesday nights on USA Network
The musical episode will be near the end of the season.
