As for the shootout, I was distracted by the presence of that NYC-style subway entry in a location that didn't resemble any part of NYC I've ever seen. This show just doesn't hold up well against all the shows that are actually filmed in NYC.
I know what you mean. Just about every time I watch Person of Interest I see somewhere I recognize. The only time that happens on Castle is when they do the aerial shots of the city.

Yeah, there are just so many shows today that are actually shot in NYC, like PoI and Elementary and White Collar, that the fake-NYC shows just don't measure up.

Come to think of it, Fringe actually did shoot its first season in New York and then moved to Vancouver to save money.

I remember one of the later season episodes of Fringe had them at 86th and Lexington in NYC and it was clearly not.

Re: Castle - Season 6 Discussion & Spoilers

Most of Fringe takes place in a fake Boston, and not NYC. However Fringe was the worst show I have ever seen when it came to locations. At least LA is a city. I will never forget the time that Fringe had "Westfield MA" as a location and all it was was flat farmland, no hills or rivers besides hundreds of miles away it looks like the Rookies. It was stupid and everyone doing "research" for the show should have been fired.

Quite a lot of the first season took place in NYC because it was actually shot there. Once they moved to Vancouver in season 2, the prominence of NYC in the scripts diminished.

Re: Castle - Season 6 Discussion & Spoilers

I have actually only seen about 8 episodes from season 1 now that I think about it. But wasn't Walt's lab in Cambridge aka Boston? Did they just travel down to NYC a lot?

Re: Castle - Season 6 Discussion & Spoilers

I saw a behind-the-scenes of CSI:NY once that revealed they shot in LA, but any street scene with a wide shot had a huge green-screen background, and they had a second unit in NYC shoot matching backgrounds to put it. I thought that was pretty amazing.

Conversely, there was a recentish ep of CSI (Las Vegas) where you could plainly see the LA City hall building in the background.

This is why I love "Continuum" - they flat-out admit it's set in Vancouver.

I wish they used the green screen technique on Castle.

Yes. Walter's lab was at Harvard University, but Massive Dynamic was in Manhattan, and a lot of the cases in the first season brought the characters to NYC.

I also recall that in season 1, Nina Sharp's office at Massive Dynamic had huge windows with a great view of the Manhattan skyline, but from season 2 onward she was in a different office with a much smaller window, since it was now a set in Vancouver with a fake skyline backdrop.

I know it says spoilers in the thread title but this one is best if you don't know anything about it so here goes:
