* Wiki/{{Wikipedia}} has [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Television_shows_set_in_Seattle,_Washington a category]] for television shows set in Seattle. Some of these include:
** ''Series/DarkAngel'': [[VancouverDoubling Filmed in Vancouver]].
** ''Series/DeadLikeMe'': Filmed in Vancouver.
** ''Series/FearTheWalkingDead'': Mentioned by George Greary in Season 2 that all major cities in the American West Coast, including Seattle, was bombed in order to eradicate the growing hordes of infected.
** ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' actor Armin Shimerman remarked that his character's home planet, a [[SwampsAreEvil soggy mudball]] called Ferenginar, "looks a little like Seattle on a bad day". It even has a Space Needle (the "Tower of Commerce").
** ''Series/{{Frasier}}'': Filmed in Los Angeles except for the 100th episode, which was actually filmed in Seattle. And the episode gets as much mileage out of Seattle landmarks as it can, including Niles getting a fish thrown at him in Pike Place Market and Frasier getting trapped on the Monorail on the way to the Space Needle.
*** The view of the Space Needle out of Frasier's apartment doesn't exist. [[MonumentalView There's no such apartment]] with that view.
** ''Series/GreysAnatomy''
** ''Series/{{Highlander}}: The Series'': at one point it's outright called "Seacouver".
** ''Series/ICarly''
** ''Series/IZombie''
** ''Series/TheKilling''
** ''Series/KyleXY'': [[RunningGag Filmed in Vancouver]].
** ''Series/{{Millennium}}'': Filmed in Vancouver.
** ''Series/{{Reaper}}'': Filmed in Vancouver.
** ''Series/{{Smallville}}'': Vancouver doubles for ''Kansas'', but one episode was set in the Seattle docks.
** ''Series/TheFortyFourHundred'': [[OverlyLongGag Filmed in Vancouver]].
** ''Series/TwinPeaks''
** ''Series/JohnDoe'', filmed in Vancouver, to the point that the Website/TelevisionWithoutPity recapper just kept calling the city "Seacouver".
** ''Series/AlmostLive'': [[SubvertedTrope Actually filmed in Seattle]].
*** Also ''Series/BillNyeTheScienceGuy'', who got his start on the above. Also actually filmed in Seattle.
** The second of the ''[[Series/KolchakTheNightStalker Kolchak]]'' TV movies was set in Seattle, and several scenes were actually filmed there.
** The 1968-70 {{Western}} ''Here Come The Brides''. Its theme song was "Seattle", a tribute to the city, and Perry Como's version became a Top 40 hit.
** Some boats features on ''Series/DeadliestCatch'' are homeported in Seattle, such as Sig Hansen's ''Northwestern'' and Keith Colburn's ''Wizard.''
** It's AfterTheEnd, so it looks much different, but a portion of ''Series/TheShannaraChronicles'' was set in Seattle 3000 years in the future, indicated by the presence of The Space Needle in the pilot.

A city situated on the eastern bank of Puget Sound in the [[TheOtherRainforest state of Washington]] and its surrounding metro area. Named for a 19th-century Duwamish tribal chief from the region who [[NewerThanTheyThink did not give an environmental speech often attributed to him]]. Home base of (or at least origin-point for) Microsoft, Creator/{{Nintendo}} of America, Creator/{{Valve|Software}}, Starbucks, Boeing[[note]]who have moved their headquarters to Chicago, but most of their production plants are located near Seattle, including the Everett plant, the world's largest building by volume[[/note]], Amazon and several other companies of note. The birthplace of {{Grunge}} music (Music/{{Nirvana}} in particular, despite not being from the city itself). Its landmarks include Pike Place Market[[note]]where the very first Starbucks - kinda - is located, which is still open for business and widely considered the ''real'' main tourist attraction, the Space Needle being little more than a giant tourist trap[[/note]], Pioneer Square (which pre-gentrification was the ''original'' Music/SkidRow), [[AlienGeometries the Experience Music Project]] (Or whatever [[IHaveManyNames its name is this week]][[note]]it's currently the Museum of Pop Culture, or [=MoPOP=] for short[[/note]]), a half-mile Monorail constructed for the 1962 World's Fair which exemplifies {{Zeerust}} to a tee, the [[UnderCity Seattle Underground]] (which was a partial inspiration for [[Literature/{{Discworld}} Ankh-Morpork]]), and the Space Needle, also constructed for the World's Fair[[note]]it looks a lot bigger in pictures than in RealLife, due to the fact that it's usually photographed from Queen Anne Hill from an angle that makes it [[HitlerCam look taller than anything else in the skyline]], despite being relatively short and at least a mile north of downtown[[/note]]. Navigation and traffic in the area [[TheMaze are notoriously frustrating]], among the top ten worst in the country.
