A. In previous seasons, I've
usually had to hunt down the locations after viewing the episodes,
using clues from the various scenes. By the 6th season, though,
I'd developed a small group of fans, spies & tipsters who kept an
eye out for Dexter filming in their neighborhoods, and would let me know
in advance when something was about to film there.
Between those reports, my own personal reconnaissance around town, and a
few new resources I discovered, by the time the first episode aired, I
already knew most (but not all) of the filming locations, and only
needed to watch the episodes and match up the scenes with the correct
This group of helpful fans includes Kerry, Rick, Ellen, Susan, Jason,
Elaine, Joel, Julie, Geoff, Jeff, Jen, and others. My thanks to all of
This tip came from Rick,
and it was very welcome, indeed.
I have found that schools are
some of the most difficult locations to track down. Why?
Because there are hundreds & hundreds of them, a school in every neighborhood
across Southern California. And many of them look remarkably
similar. Trying to pinpoint one school out of so many, based on a
brief glimpse in a scene, can be next to impossible.
The only way
to improve my chances is to search first near areas where they had
filmed other scenes in same episode, but that still doesn't guarantee
success. Fortunately, Rick knew where it was. (Thanks, Rick!)
