10:57 am - Sometimes living in LA really does = awesome
Okay, so last week (Thursday, I think) I was pulling out of my driveway on the way to work. I noticed 3 large, unmarked white vans parked across the street and wondered what they were there for. A quick look revealed a Criminal Minds sticker discreetly placed in the rear window each.

This led me to believe that someone might be scouting a house on our street for location shooting. :-)

When signs started going up on our block on Monday, warning us not to park on the street from 7am - 11pm on Wednesday, I knew I was right.

I don't think we got the official "we will be filming in your neighborhood" notification on our doorknob till yesterday (maybe Monday and I just didn't see it till last night). Definitely Criminal Minds, episode 3.14, and from the scene description (driving, interior and exterior dialogue, etc) it sounds like it's a major crime scene for the episode. And I'd bet $$ that means major cast members and first unit crew.

When I drove to work this morning? There was a police cruiser and a van with lights/siren on it parked across the way. The cruiser said "Pittsburgh Police," and the van, "Pittsburgh Coroner."

*luvs LA*

And I don't even watch that show. If it were Numb3rs or CSI, I so would have called in sick today and sat watching the proceedings out my living room window.

I've watched it a few times, but it kind of creeps me out. I quit watching for much the same reasons I quit watching Law and Order: SVU. Good show...but I can't scrub the cases out of my brain. :S

You need to email me about when you'll be here so Amanda and I can meet you somewhere or have you over to our house! livefortheone AT hotmail DOT com, in case you've lost it.

Pittsburgh police? Pittsburgh coroner? Hahahahahah I find that so funny since that's where I'm from. They better have gotten the logos and the town seal correct.

LOL, if I had a way to upload pics at work I totally would have taken a picture of the cruiser.

Well, I adore Criminal Minds, so I'm very happy to hear it's filming anywhere, let alone on your street. You must watch that episode and point out anything you recognize, so that the rest of us can see where you live.

That's right, you're a fan! :-)

I'll totally DVR this ep, just to see our neighborhood on TV. And I'll let you all know which scene it is.

You know, it occurred to me later that you might not actually want to advertise your neighborhood on the internet. So feel free to ignore my suggestion, I was just intrigued. :)

Well, my house isn't going to be shown; and they'll give a different address since it's supposed to be in Pittsburgh. So I probably will post about it on my LJ after I see it. (Maybe I'll friendslock it, but maybe not.)

Still: TV! On your block! Awesome!

Exactly. *g* When I got home from work, they'd finished all the outdoor shots, but they had light blasting in through windows to the interior of the house to simulate daylight. Clearly still doing some work.
