San Francisco is iconic and there is no doubt about it.
Warner Brothers Everywhere you go... you see San Francisco.
The City by the Bay has been the muse and inspiration for all sorts of art forms, ranging from the signature tune of singer Tony Bennett to the song-like poems of Lawrence Ferlinghetti that shroud you in an enchanting delight like Karl the Fog.
Our city has also been appearing in the fair amount of television shows recently. NBC just debuted About a Boy last week, which stars David Walton and Minnie Driver. The show is a comedic take on the 2002 Hugh Grant film (which is based on the Nick Hornby novel). But unlike the film, which takes place in London, the story lines develop in San Francisco instead.
As well as HBO announced that it renewed Looking for a second season. The story of three gay men living in San Francisco and their forays into love, relationships, and self discovery were filmed entirely in San Francisco and surrounding Bay Area late last summer.
And last week we noted TNT's new series, Murder in the First, will be filming San Francisco this year.
So while San Francisco has been the starlet of the small screen lately, this isn't the first time TV programs have taken place in our beloved city. As a result, we here at SF Weekly have ranked our top picks for the10 best television shows depicting San Francisco. Let us know if you agree, or if you feel we left any off the list.More »
