* In a now-forgotten show called ''Series/{{theMountain}}'' a girl dresses in skimpy clothes for a visit to her boyfriend. The California-based costumiers apparently forgot that the show was set at a ski resort with subzero temperatures.

** Whenever the series needed a train station, Pacific Central Station would get used. The same station was used to double for Boston South Station as well as two alternate universe versions of Newark Penn Station (as well as a few unspecified commuter stations). This leads to some interesting scenes, such as vintage stainless steel railroad equipment being used to double for external shots of commuter cars (even while more modern equipment is used for the interior shots)...though the coffee shop where Fauxlivia gets her coffee in Newark is still operational.

* Most of ''Series/{{TheManInTheHighCastle}}'' was shot in Vancouver (the remainder was shot in Seattle).

* Stockton CA has been used for a large number of movies and TV, mostly because it doesn't look much like LA/Southern CA. Prime examples, the roadbuilding scene in ''Film/CoolHandLuke'' (Shot just outside of town on 10-mile road) and the "Eastern College" in ''Film/TheSureThing'' (which is actually Pacific University).

* The TV miniseries ''Series/TheLostRoom'' has a scene set in Las Vegas. In one take, an Albuquerque bus drives past; in another, the Sandia Mountains - what Albuquerque has instead of a skyline - are clearly visible.

* ''Film/{{Thor}}'' is set in a small town in New Mexico. Where is it filmed, you ask? Why, a small town in New Mexico. (Well, mostly Albuquerque made to look smaller than it already is).

* ''Series/ColdCase'' has occasional location shots in Philadelphia, but has many scenes clearly filmed in LA: the architecture that is supposedly "Germantown" or "the River Wards" has no business anywhere that gets harsh winters. The UsefulNotes/LosAngelesMetro has stood in for the Broad Street Subway at least once, as well. Any scene involving the cops standing outside their workplace is a bit strange since it's the same building that the FBI's LA bureau uses in ''Series/{{Numb3rs}}'', shot from below the bridges.
