The Space Needle survived... but good acting was nowhere to be found.
And I think I recall an episode in "Seattle" where someone got thrown off the top of the Hotel Vancouver.
What is this from?
If someone actually has the guts/balls to tag the space needle like that, we need to leave it up there.
Why is the future always dark and ugly? And the sun never shines? Wait, Roddenberry died, that's what happened....
Ah yes... I miss Jessica Alba in leather.
SPOILER ALERT This image is from Dark Angel - the last TV series I watched.
I never watched enough to 'get' that show. Mostly what I remember was that it wasn't as cool as Pretender.
Jessica Alba was/is hot.
But Battlestar Galactica is better. As is Reaper, another show about Seattle, filmed in Vancouver ...
Please cite things.
P.S. Does the Space Needle actually tower over the Belltown high rises that much? The perspective seems off. Maybe in the future they put the Space Needle on risers. I've always wondered how long the city will be able to keep the high rise development away from the Space Needle and keep it the tallest building in such a large radius.
P.S.S. Why is practically every Seattle skyline photo taken from Queen Anne? Seriously, stupidest angle ever. This is why idiot out-of-towners think the Space Needle is the tallest structure in Seattle.
That's actually a pretty accurate perspective. Alan J. Pakula's 1974 political thriller "The Parallax View" includes a scene taken from almost exactly that same perspective, which looks almost exactly the same (I'd post a link, but SLOG only allows one per comment - look up "parallax view shooting scene" on YouTube and you should be able to view a clip that includes the shot.)
Also, the live web-cam atop the needle:
- can generate a view from almost the same angle that clearly shows the distance and perspective to Belltown isn't fudged more than slightly in the "Dark Angel" screen cap.
Yeah, idiot out-of-towners thinking they know which building's the tallest. Haven't they seen that big black building? They're so stupid.
I guess that sort of reads like I believe all out-of-towners think that. Which I don't. Sorry.
Actually, the view from Queen Anne (usually shot from Kerry Park) is so popular mainly because it also captures Mt. Rainier in the background.
For the record, Alki offers a much better perspective of the downtown core.
