^Don't forget Detroit. RoboCop: The Series
was filmed in Toronto, and after a while they stopped even trying to hide the skyline.
And let's see, The Dead Zone
was set in a small town in Maine but was filmed in Vancouver for its first five seasons and Toronto in its sixth.
And of course the Stargate
franchise gave us a whole universe that mostly looked like the woods around Vancouver.
Then there are those Canadian-made shows that are filmed and implicitly set in Toronto but try not to admit it so that they're marketable in the US, like Flashpoint
and Lost Girl
Of course, Americans have had to endure decades of Los Angeles and its environs being passed off as New York, San Francisco, South Korea, and just about everywhere else. Leverage
passed Portland, Oregon off as Boston for three seasons, but then switched the setting to
Portland in the final season.
