Where in the World?.... Episode V


Okay kids. You know the drill. The first person to correctly identify where this was taken wins a dreamy picture of Dr Zelenka, featuring creepy eyes-that-follow-you-around-the-room, and a genuine 100% knock-off dollar store Stargate party hat - with adjustable elastic head-band to keep the hat on your head when you are mid-party. Both will be signed by the elusive and mumbly one, as soon as I can find him, and sent to your front door. So be sure to leave an email address, just in case...

Well, I'm pretty sure it isn't anywhere in Czech Republic...

I'll take a guess New York City?

Paulína said...

Vencouver?

Becky S said...

I woud have to agree with paulina..I would have to guess Vancouver.

Liz said...

For no other reason than I would be the first to say it, how about Toronto?

Jennifer said...

Atlantis?

(someone had to say it)

Teknikal said...

im gonna have to say vangroovey

Vesica said...

Well don't try to totally stump us or anything.

Um...based on the lovely detail on the building on the left....

Chicago?

*has no freakin' clue*

Dana said...

Not a clue...somewhere in Germany? Strilim od boku. ;D

lemonchicken said...

With what looks like scaffolding, Id guess somewheres of downtown Vancouver.

-lemonchicken ... it wont let me sign in!

Audrey said...

You're an evil man, Dr. Z. :) Hmm....my first guess would be New York City, as someone already said, but hmm...well, no, not LA, too much pretty detail on the building.....

lemonchicken said...

Another thought ... its not Gastown (vancouver), is it? The buildings look old.

SeattleMeg said...

Hmm. given the lovely fascia on the bldg to the left and the fact that the one on the right looks greenish, I'm going to guess that old hotel and glass building in downtown Vancouver that are right across from the plaza in front of the Art museum. Did I get it? and great perspective, by the way.

Rose said...

Amsterdam? They have nice tall green buildings.

girl.introspective said...

Good god! I'm going to go batty crazy with this. I'm going out on a huge limb and going to say San Francisco. With only basing it on the fact that you are on the West Coast and all the other likely locations have been picked. That and it is my home town.

Good luck to whom ever gets this. You deserve it!

moiraeknittoo AT gmail DOT com said...

I'll go out on a limb and say Downtown Seattle, just for the heck of it.

Suz said...

I agree with moiraeknittoo...I think it's Seattle

dunno why...just a hunch!

(and dang why won't blogger let me log on with my other account!)

suekay :)

Rosehawk said...

Yeah I'm with you moiraeknittoo and SueKay; my first instincts were Seattle or maybe Tacoma.

How soon before we get a hint?!

Kai said...

Well, this has to be Paris, France

Cori said...

It'd say somewhere US or Canada

hmmm Los Angeles?

KaziWren said...

Hmmm....totally random guess:

Los Angeles (I'm mainly thinking the downtown area because of it's old buildings).

Valderys said...

It's not the McGraw-Hill Building in New York, is it? Something in the greenness, and the brick layout...

nickeyb at gmail dot com

Tauri Sith said...

First thing that popped into my head was Philidalphia, but that's prob'ly not it... second guess would be Paris... third would be San Fransisco (though I can't be sure, haven't been there in seven years).
tauri[dot]sith[at]gmail[dot]com in the extremely unlikely event I was right...

Shelley Templar said...

For some reason I want to say London.

faithchan said...

Es very clean, so if it's not in Canada (as so many have already guessed), I'll be different and guess Boston.

Very kewl shot, though. :)

(Oh yea, since today is David Hewlett's birthday, and David Tennant's birthday, and your birthday is apparently top secret, I'll just make it a clean David sweep and say "Happy 40 Years on Earth")

Mel said...

Darn--another'n I don't know. I should post some of the pictures I have and see you can guess 'em!

LOL. Just kidding. It is a great shot, though.

Anonymous said...

Hm, this reminded me a little of my time in Paris. One of the Museum's actually had something that looked like construction on the outside.

Good one though.

crazedturkey said...

This is probably going to make me sound really daft...

but...

Sydney Australia?

or Wellington NZ?

Rachie said...

I'm going somewhere in California... Anaheim, San Francisco, Berkely... somehere there.

Like most people I have no clue!!

~Rach.

Cynthia said...

Hrm. The Chicago Loop?

warmskin@gmail.com said...

I'm going to guess Montreal! Because nobody else has. :)

Kliggs said...

New York City?

Ange said...

My chiropractor will be pleased with me...the Pilsen district in Chicago?

Anthony said...

I will say Venace... or behind the Ed Sullivan Theatre.

There are probably so many places in the world that look like that.

Francy said...

Hmm... the streets seem to narrow to be Vancouver...

sgeureka said...

That's on Kelowna, Jonas's homeworld, as seen in SG-1's "Shadow Play".

http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g36/sgeureka/sg_eps/sg_607_building.jpg

LOL that I recognized it... :-)

sgeureka said...

Hate to correct me, but it just looked similar. But I still guess it's somewhere in Vancouver...

Chez said...

Venice.. heheh now I'm totally just making it all up! darn my travelling life!

BethyNYC said...

I say New York--it looks *awfully* familiar.

Windshieldbug said...

(I can't sign in.)

Since I'm the first to guess this, I bet I'm wrong. I figure you probably haven't been to Dallas before. However, those building look like some I know in the Dallas-Grapevine area.

zero_sgp said...

mhhhh.... i'am think it's Chicago.

Greetings from Austria :)

Misty aka s_aurius said...

heh, and we all thought we were so smart. ;p This is a tough one.
Looks like it could be in just about any major city. hmmm. I'm gonna go with...downtown Saint Louis, because they have some really beautiful old buildings there.

If it's not any that we have guessed could we get a hint please? :D

Novaks25 said...

Since no one else guessed this,
I say Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I don't think it is but we're known for older buildings.

petite franchi said...

In france
in aquitaine
in gironde
in Civrac en Médoc(is a big city lol)!
^^

Icie said...

Oookay, so I guess this is not any random little Czech village then ;) Hmm... *thinks* ... nope, don't know this one either, duh!

Mel said...

I've decided I need to do some more traveling--anyone care to join me?

Um, David? Has anyone guessed it yet? (Sorry... terminal curiosity.)

Mystery said...

Ha!! It's Pittsburgh!

Actually I haven't a clue, but no one else guessed it yet. Plus, we do have some pretty cool older architecture around the city. I'm just not sure if any of it happens to be green.

(long time reader - 1st time poster - Big Dr Z fan!! ;-)

ankhmutes said...

You've cleverly not given us any signs or other writing that would give us a clue. Very tricky. It doesn't really look European to me, at least not the parts I have been in, because of the mix in styles. Something about that says North America to me. A large city, probably.

I'm going to guess randomly among cities no one else has yet and say Denver?

Kimberly Eddy said...

It looks like Munich, Germany...

or Frankfurt...

Anonymous said...

Portland

Shelley Templar said...

doh!
Forgot to put my email when I guessed that it was London:
shelleytemplar AT yahoo.co.uk

moogman said...

Ill go for sanfransisco

Egwene said...

Hum... it definitely has a North American look to it. At least, it doesn't look like anything I've seen in Europe ;)

So, because nobody else said it before: Ottawa!

This is my first participation to the game, how many guesses do we have each??

kremlinois@yahoo.fr

Laitaine said...

Wow, this is a tough one. How about Rome?

Carol said...

London?

Or Montreal?

Somewhere in the Docklands?

carollee86@gmail.com

Christina said...

It kind of looks like Detroit, but I'm not sure who in their right mind would want to visit or take pictures here.

c_d_huber@yahoo.com

allison said...

Yeah, it really does look like Chicago on the L...

Carolyn said...

Nice shot! I have no clue, and since I won last time I won't guess, but it looks kinda almost like Kansas City. I know it's probably not, but it makes me miss home.

darklock said...

Surrey, British Columbia

Emilie said...

Ok, don't think anyone's said THIS yet... Philly?

heide20e@mtholyoke.edu

CM said...

Brooklyn ?

Library-Gryffon said...

For my guess, I'll hazard someplace in Boston, MA.

Tauri Sith said...

Pretty sure it's not Boston. Would be extremely put-out if it was. Me living there and not recognizing it and all.
Has anyone been close yet, Dr. Z?

Vesica said...

Arg! I realized I didn't leave an e-mail, nor is this silly account set up to allow anyone to get to my e-mail.

I am becoming more and more convinced that really is Chicago (as I already guessed...) though I can't say if it's the Loop (perhaps) or Michigan Ave. It really looks more like it's part of the Magnificent Mile (Michigan Ave).

Anyway: Vesica @ gmail.com

Elyse said...

Well, built between 1915 and the 50s, so says my brother by studying the outside of the building to the left, but it's very generic, possiblyMidwest. Heck, could be Pittsburgh, Chicago, Des Moines, or NYC even. I'm going to definitely say, It's on Earth. I know I have that part right, eh? ;) Then again, could be Seattle, Portland OR.

How about Springfield, MA?

Carolann said...

Has no one guessed it yet? Is it Newfoundland?

Dr Z said...

We have a winner! Yes, you were all sorta close. Not much time to write here, but the place is

Mel said...

*frowns*

You are so evil!!!

HyperCaz said...

hehe it could have been accidental...evil bunny boy ^_^

Dr Z said...

FAITHCHAN wins the lucky Meat Draw Doorprize: it's Boston, just outside Filene's Basement on the way up to the Common.
.
Email me your mailing address. You get the party hat.
.
Honourable mention goes to LIBRARY-GRYFFON for guessing correctly, but without the twitch-reflex speed of Faithchan, your post came in a scant 3/100ths of a second later, putting you in second place.
.
The drama!
.
Talk to you all again soon...

Tauri Sith said...

It was Boston?! How the heck did I not know that?! I was just wandering around there yesterday...!!!!!
[hangs head] I think I'll move to Scotland...

Carolyn said...

Congrats to Faithchan!

faithchan said...

Holy Carp!

Library-Gryffon said...

Congrats faithchan! I thought I'd read all the other posts. Dr Z, it's very kind of you to describe 36 hours as milliseconds, though I suppose in the cosmic sceme of things, it is a very short time....

SeattleMeg said...

Ah, Faithchan, you lucky, lucky you.... sigh... Someday I'll see something that doesn't look like Seattle or Vancouver. LOL

Francy said...

Congrats, Faithchan!

Rachie said...

Haha! Boston. Congrats faithchan.

My guess was barely less than a guess (think random place from a hat). I haven't even been out of Australia! :P

Misty aka s_aurius said...

Congrats faithchan! :)
hehe this is too much fun. :p

I look forward to the next episode. :D

allison said...

*looks down at Boston U T-shirt*
Sometimes the answers right in front of your nose ^_^;
Great Job, Faithchan! ;D

Elyse said...

Well, I was only miles away in Springfield. Same state at least :)

Mel said...

Congrats, Faithchan!

Becky S said...

Congratulations faithchan! Good job!

Anthony said...

Boston you say. I knew that, I just didn't want to be greedy and take the prize *sinister grin*.

Nah, I had no clue really. Nice work!

Kanku said...

Wow...took me forever to find this blong, I knew it was somewhere...

Anyway...um...no clue in the slightest so...
New York City?
-Kanku

susan said...

Boston. I have been up and down all the streets here in Perth (Scotland) and couldn't find it.

Any prize will be donated to the save carson beckett fund. Let's hope there is never a save zelenka campaign.

Susan

Kanku said...

And NOW I loads all the other comments...sorry bout that
Congrats Faithchan ^^
-Kanku

Dr Z said...

Full time busy now, apologies, no time to even seal an envelope. Patience Faithchan, one day your prints will come. Will blog, will mail soon.

Teknikal said...

heehee...if you wait for it..it will come ...(said with a waynes world accent)

hope all is well in the wacky and exciting world of DR to the Z!!!

allison said...

Glad to see they're keepin' you busy ;D.

Pega said...

Doesn't it just suck when real life interferes with the online fun and games? ;)

youkay said...

A vague wondering Dr Z... In the world of your brain is it "Doctor Zee" or "Doctor Zed"?

I ask because I'm English and even to me it's Doctor Zee.

darklock said...

Dr. Zed sounds like Dr. Zee's ominous alter ego.

allison said...

Like Rod and Rodney. They should absolutely do an episode like that for Zelenka ;D.

Rosehawk said...

Hey, congradulations Faithchan, that was one lucky guess!!!!!

I would love to see an alter-ego Zelenka! After seeing some of your other work where you did dark characters, an alter-ego Zelenka would be fantastic to watch! As long as it isn't permenant!

allison said...

And just as long as they don't give you that...interesting crew cut from Jake 2.0 ^_^;. Drop a hint to JM.

Ben said...

Earth?

The Milky Way?

mario said...

I do not really like to buy DVD's for particular tv show and episode. I have found a source and I watch all TV Shows Online. Here picture quality is brilliant.
