Moonlighting was a lot of fun for the time. The chemistry between Madddie and David was superb, love/hate at its best. You can't go wrong with Al Jarreau either - loved the theme. Agnes and Herbert were as essential as TC, Rick, and Higgins (IMO) - loved em. The use of fantasy was very enjoyable, camera and lense work, excellent - watch the show.

What ruined Moonlighting for me, for some reason I hate when the mains couple-up! Psych and Castle went this route too and I enjoyed the shows less and less. I don't know why this bugs me so much but it does, it takes something away, waters down the chemistry.

I haven't seen Moonlighting in years, my hope if I see it again is that it lives up to my favorable memories, as for 80s tv (in the 80s), very fun :D in our cynical 21st century - who knows :?

I know its a bit of a longshot, but I'm wondering if anyone can identify the address of the dumpy residency apartment ("hovel" as David puts it) the deaf guy was living at in the episode Yours Very Deadly (season 3, episode 4). Its at 17:30 or so, in the episode...

I haven't been able to identify where this location was or whether it still exists. Obviously its in skid row area of downtown LA, but I haven't been able to narrow it down or whether its still there.

Try, 802 E 7th Street Los Angelas on Google maps!

Looks possible, but I'm not sure that's it. All those streets look similar in the area, and after 30 years its hard to tell.

Thanks for the quick reply.

All it takes is a little detective work! If you Google Rite Way Truck Brokers Los Angeles, you find they are now Wolfe Trucking. In their history, they started out on 7th street, across from the old Los Angeles Wholesale Produce Market, which started out at Central, and 7th. If you Google Rite Way Truck Brokers 7th street Los Angeles, you get that address, 802 E 7th Street! So that is the spot!

You can also see the old large rooftop sign in the upper left corner of the video: Wholesale Terminal(Wholesale Terminal Produce Market)!

You're a better detective than me. I tried various ways to find the spot and came up empty. The big problem is that I couldn't read the little print on the Rite Way building.

Yes, I saw the partial sign but couldn't find anything, or in fact, I found too much and no images with that sign. I saw the same "clues" as you but I guess I didn't have your detective skills!

Also in the Moonlighting video, you can see the Hotel sign, behind the fire escape. In Google maps, you see a newer Hotel sign, and the windows where the fire escape used to be!
