9/9 Season Two, Episode 2: The Times They are a Changin’- Scarecrow and Mrs King

Uh oh… Lee gets nabbed by the music hater..2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_001985185Actually she’s not so bad.. it was very kind of her to just kind of wave her gun near the back of Lee’s head like 2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_001994194that so he could knock himself out falling down the stairs Winking smile Maybe the tux won her over Winking smile 

AHA!!!! Finally I figured out where I had seen Von snob’s house before!!! It’s the fake blind baddie’s house in Brunettes are in!!!!! ROFL!!! In America!!!
2.06 BRUNETTES ARE IN.avi_001890223

Anyway, next thing we see Lee and Amanda maintaining their tradition of spend the night being held captive together ! Smile
2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002004838
Lee is out cold.. I love how their heads are resting together.. awh.. like they are offering comfort to each other..he comes to.. ugh.. I hate that flippin flute! they do a good job of making it annoying!!

2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002024224Amanda: What am I going to tell Mother? She must be worried sick. I didn’t come home all last night.
Lee: Yeah, I know that.
Amanda: I didn’t even call.
201Lee: Tell her you were tied up.

Amanda: That’s not funny.
2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002028228
Lee: But it’s true!

2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002037237Von Snob enters the room: I’m so sorry, my dear, for the inconvenient 2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002036236way you had to spend the night.
Amanda: Then maybe you’d consider letting us go.??
2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002041374
Love this line!!! Love the look Lee gives von snob as Amanda says this.. challenging Von snob- like he is saying- you are full of empty words and Amanda called you on it-Pal!!! Smile

“I don’t know if we should leave them unguarded!” the flutey baddie enquires- Well of course you should leave them alone! How else are they going to
2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002056256escape?! Dummy.. the baddies head off to nab Haddy the daddy.. Love Inga asking Von Snob if she can kill them.. she’s a baddie with lots of personality! Smile

The moment they are alone, we can see Amanda’s given up hope.. but.. Lee’s brain is in gear, looking for a way out.. awh! good for him!!
2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002076276

2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002092292(The whole let’s knock over the vase scene is funny- but probably not suppose to be!!).. Amanda’s facial expressions totally don’t match the noises 2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002143343that we hear from her! hehehee.. I bet Lee took great pleasure in breaking Baron Van snob’s vase! 2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002152352 - CopyLove how Amanda’s hair is suddenly very wiry when it comes time to fall to the ground tied to the chair! tee hee.. ahhh I love stunt Amanda..
Amanda says “I’m glad I wore the pants instead of the gown. “ – ain’t that the truth..(although she could have gotten away with a gown.. it’s stunt Amanda that does all the tough work Winking smile ) that’s where Lee has it easy.. a tux is so easy to do action in! and.. look good!

The script had an extra moment here where Amanda uses Lee’s american express card [product placement alert!] to open the locked door.. glad they didn’t go with it- overkill! Maybe the endorsement agreement fell through 😉

Anyway, Lee and Amanda are free and the chase is on! this is where my atttention begins to lag.. the scarecrow and mrs king theme kicks in rather loudly, we see lots of stunts and Lee kicking butt.. Amanda bumbling somehow but things working out in the end.. goodo..

Hey! Amanda is super clever, she can get kidnapped, tied up all night- and hang on to her handbag!! I am in awe of her talent..

How did Lee and Amanda arrive in Emmerams Mueller before the baddies? don’t tell me.. Lee knows a short cut Winking smile

Did Lee just say Wait here in german to Amanda? HA!!  (yeah Lee you may as well tell her in german, for all the good it does to tell her that! haaaaa haaaa.. )
2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002218418
2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002242442Lee heads off ( looking a little overdressed Winking smile remember that moment in nightcrawler?? !!!) to get Haddy the daddy, but the two baddies show up.. 2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002297831lots of shooting.. yawn yawn.. hey it looks like blood thirsty Inga is a lousy shot!! Smile
Amanda squashes Inga accidentally.. Sweet! Smile  you know.. because my interest fades in these big action sequences I am sure I miss out on lots of goodies.. I just stumbled across one when looking to see if I could get a shot of Inga getting squashed (lol!)- I couldn’t ( Sad smile) but.. what I did get was we see
2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002301468Inga’s face as she realises the skip is coming right for her.. and then we see Inga’s point of view: the skip coming straight to camera- and- rofl! you can see someone’s sneakers underneath it running and pushing the skip towards the camera when it is suppose to have run away from Amanda!! haaa!!
2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002301735

Ah looky.. Billy and Francine have showed up.. Flutey boy takes off on a motorbike and super Lee has to run after him Oh goody! bike chase.. and so continues Lee’s contractually obliged 10 minutes of action and compulsory single handed nabbing of the bad guy.. Lee always chooses the motorbike which will be the fastest!!! How does he do it.. ha haaaaa
2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002431131

Gorgeous scenery! Isn’t it great that SMK didn’t just lock itself away in a tv studio in London to film these european episodes!! They make the most of it, and it is just glorious!! Smile
LOL! Lee has to pull the knocked out bad guy up off the ground so that he can deliver his trademark 1, 2 punch!!!!! and then.. and only then, is the baddie allowed to pass out!!! I’ll tell you when you can pass out Pal!!! Smile Hey! this week, the action doesn’t stop here!! we’ve still got an assassination to stop!

Lee heads back to all the gang and Haddy. They put their heads together to work out who’s the target..
2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002492125
2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002505138Billy even adds in a line that Mathew Herns ‘ is leaving before nightfall’ Open-mouthed smile Haddy is certain the 2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002524157target is him though..  Amanda realises there is only about 5 minutes left of this episode so she had better hurry up and solve the puzzle here.. so Lee and Amanda have time to save the day, and have their little tag together Smile too funny!
2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002522155Lee: His Royal neatness is the back up assassin?  – whooo Lee! that’s harsh!!! 😉

2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002537170
2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002539172Amanda
: It’s not the kind of night that falls when it gets dark! It’s the kind of knight that wears armour!

Lee tries to leave without Amanda.. no way
2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002553186buddy!! Smile Amanda tries to come along and he pushes her back yelling: NOOO!!!! 2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002554154whoooo all intense.. I like it!! Winking smile (love how Lee’s tux armpit is torn! Maybe Lee borrowed it from Francine also Winking smiletoo tiny! No I know!! It’s Lee’s stunt tuxedo 😉 )
2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002554688
Lee is determined to keep Amanda out of danger, but.. Amanda responds quietly, calmly, firmly, intensely( go Amanda! she even manages to still smile slightly here-awesome acting KJ!!) : LEE!!! MOTHER AND THE BOYS ARE THERE!!!
2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002558958

Billy and Francine seem to notice the sparks 2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002559192between them here too Smile ..Lee sees- he can’t stop her from being there for her family!!!!
2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002561327

( good decision!) soooooo on the bike and let’s go!!!! so glad I can finally get half decent photos of this moment.. before the official dvds it was just too blurry to bother! whoo hoo!Gee aren’t you glad you wore your pyjama pants now Amanda?
2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002568635
Pretty sure that’s nooooooot Lee and Amanda! Smile Anyway, on to the glockenspiel.. Lee and Amanda will meet you there stunt riders!! Winking smile
2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002610243AHA! So there is the weird puppet dance they were talking about at the party! they should have showed that footage at 2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002598231the beginning of the episode so I knew what  they were on 2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002613246about.. 2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002626626
[I’m guessing this location has zero to do with the actual marienplatz??!! though very pretty! ETA:**Thanks Claudia and Redgold- I guessed wrong here 😉  I stand corrected here: this really is the marienplatz? I am super impressed they managed it!! 🙂 ] So, Lee and Amanda arrive just in time.(get it?!)-The knight is about to fall! eek!!!  Lee 2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002645278the human spider climbs up and stops His royal 2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002646279neatness.. and.. gives him a contractual 1,2 punch! EEEEKKK!!!!! Oh dear.. when Lee stops and picks lint off the Baron’s suit and says “just a bit of lint2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002660293and mocks the baron- I cringe!!!! I know others will feel differently, but for me, I think it makes Lee look  petty! I think it was suppose to be clever.. but I thought it made Lee look small- and that is not what his character is like in my view! [I never understood the concept that the Baron was willing to shoot the guy in front of everyone.. I thought his cover, money and reputation were key to how effective he’d been.. so what he gives that all up just to be the one to shoot this guy?]

LOL, It is kind of ironic that in the next moment Lee tracks down Amanda, and she brushes off his 2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002676109jacket absently while she tells him where her family is!!! tee hee! [did I just hear Amanda whisper ‘lint!’ ?? ] whahahaa! Just kidding!!

Although I do have a sudden craving for Lindt chocolate..

How did Dottie and the kids not see Lee take out the baron? How did they not see Amanda in her crazy distinctive outfit on the back of that dirt bike zoom into the square? her arms around a conspicuously hunky guy in a tuxedo?? I mean.. who misses that??!!
2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002677877
LOL!! A surprise goodbye from Amanda here!!Now who doesn’t love how Amanda 2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002681314inadvertently totally gets back at Lee here at the end by sneaking away 2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002682315on him??!! It’s ironic because Dotty and the boys sneak away while he isn’t looking also! Smile His reaction is great!
2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_0026883212.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002690323

2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002692325“Hey! I’m suppose to do that!”
2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002693326

2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002694327Love to see Lee having a laugh at Amanda getting one over on him! Smile
Tag time!!! Love how Amanda tells Dotty she was tied up! haaa so Lee’s idea wasn’t so dumb after all huh!
Dotty: Amanda, if you don’t have your memories, you don’t have anything!
2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002716349
Amanda: Mother, it’s not what you’re thinking!
Dotty: you’re too young to know what I’m thinking!
2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002722355

Not a very eventful tag for me.. but kinda cute! Amanda sees Lee and makes an excuse to wander off for a moment..  (surely Dotty can see them Amanda talking to that guy who scaled the wall and started punching that guy?! too weird!) Lee 2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002754387tells Amanda that Haddy the daddy is with his son now.. I think Lee just wanted an excuse to see her again! Well.. that and this show 2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002755388never ends without them together- or at the very least it ends with one of them-thinking about the other!! (Lee’s tie looks too short!! It looks weird- Maybe he borrowed it from Francine Winking smile )

The rigged coffee can is still bothering Amanda!! don’t do that to Amanda again Lee! The cashier and box boy are agents? ( surely not!! apprentice agents maybe.. Winking smile )
Amanda: Gosh. That used to be a simple
2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002809442neighbourhood grocery store. Well. . . . Look, would you do me a favour? Would you not put any more winning contest tickets in my coffee cans?
Lee: You got a deal.
2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002813446Amanda: Thanks very much.
Amanda turns to leave..but stops and turns when Lee says:  But I’d keep my eye open for the breakfast cereal boxes.
2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002814447

(and Amanda’s home never ate cereal out of a box again! 😉 Love how Lee has a good laugh here.. at the beginning of the episode he didn’t seem to want to show his good mood.. and hid his smiles- here- he is open with his enjoyment!! Smile
2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002815448
2.02 TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN.avi_002817450

Amanda can’t help but smile at Lee’s joking.. yes I much prefer this Lee too Amanda Winking smile and.. there we have it.. the final frame of this episode.. so sad to say goodbye to Munich.. and Lee’s fabulous haircut.. but.. life in the spy bizz doesn’t stay still for long! Especially spy hair.. it grows very fast! ( sob..) next week we are back in LA err I mean washington. This episode has turned into an epic series of posts! I hope you have enjoyed it as much as I have – inspite of my narky comments about the action finales and the smk routines I do love it!! Smile

  1. This episode!!! I’ve been wanting to comment on it for some time, but my brain kept short-circuiting. Lee just looks soooo good! I’m not sure that he’s ever looked better 😍 So many frames of Lee in a tux, plus Lee in a tux with his dimples out in full force

    I especially love when he comes back from the motorcycle chase and the looks Lee gives Amanda, wordlessly checking to make sure she’s okay, then she breathes out: oh yes 😍

    And that entire near silent conversation that follows … oh my god!

    Amanda: Mother and the boys are there and the chimes are so loud you could never hear a gunshot
    Lee (quietly): I know
    Lee (more forcefully as Amanda moves to go with him): No! No!
    Amanda (loudly): Lee!
    Lee (hands on Amanda’s arms): No!
    Amanda (turns her hands to grab Lee’s forearms, while slowly enunciating each word): Mother. And. The. Boys. Are. There.
    Staring contest for 4 seconds; cut to Francine looking at Billy with a “can you believe this?!” look)
    Lee (huffs): Oh, alright, alright!
    Lee (taking her left hand in his right as they run to the motorcycle): Come on!

    Can you tell I’ve watched that scene several times over? 🤣
    They had an entire conversation with very little actual words being said. These two! How did I miss this the first few times I watched this episode? 🤦🏻‍♀️ I’m incoherent now 🙃


    • Aren’t they amazing together? I think the song “You Say It Best” is THEIR song and was written by someone who loved the series.


    • I was just disappointed that according to the script, they cut Amanda finding Lee unconscious on the stairs and caring for him. Those moments are always so tender.


  2. #2019 rewatch

    It took my pedant brain far too long to ponder through the unwieldiness of the nightfall pun when surely Haddy et al spoke German to each other, even though they kindly all spoke English for us?

    I am bemused that the left in the “gown” line when they must have know that the motorcycle scene would preclude being able to wear one?

    This remains though one of my favourite episodes – and not just because of the high levels of tux swooniness!


    • #2019 rewatch

      This remains though one of my favourite episodes – and not just because of the high levels of tux swooniness!

      My two top scenes were Lee and Amanda chair-hopping to break the Baron’s valuable vase; plus, the look on Lee’s face when he realizes he has to up his game since Amanda has mastered his trademark disappearing act. Great choice Janet!

      PS: It’s still September in California.


  3. #2019rewatch
    I think it’s a sweet touch that Lee makes a point to let Amanda know that Haddy the Daddy has been reunited with his son. That to me says he’s been holding on to that comment she made during the early scene back at the arches when Amanda comments about how awful it would be if Haddy and his son were never to see each other. I think it also must be at the forefront – the level of importance family is to Amanda- when he hears her say “Mother and the boys are there”. His knight armor may be brave and tough enough to take down terrorists like Baron Von Snob/Lint, but Amanda King is certainly finding the soft spots in that armor that are beginning to chink away…

    Hope you each have a chance to chime in (clock pun 100% intended) with some comments on this episode within these last days of September!


  4. If anybody is interested in locations, pls visit the Yuku forum for SMK. I’ve created a topic to collect all filming locations for this ep in one thread. But I’m still missing the locations for the Tied-Up scene (which isn’t Villa Stuck) as well as for the Brauhaus scene (which isn’t the main room of the Hofbraeuhaus). So if anyobody has any idea where to find them, please let me know.


  5. ScarecrowsAngel

    Nice episode, and until the DVDs, unknown to most Germans. At least with this one I have a theory why ZDF did not broadcast it. They had NO idea how to satisfactorily translate the nightfall/knightfall pun. I wouldn’t know how to do that, either. That’s why we didn’t get it. Back then, broadcasters could get away with omitting episodes, because we didn’t have the Internet to fill in our blanks.

    Too bad SMK went to Munich twice but never to Hamburg. Envy…


    • Yes, that night-/knightfall pun would have bee hard to fit in. 😉

      And I also think the similarities between the fictional Rheinbaden-Group (or what they called them) and the very real RAF (NO, I don’t mean the Royal Air Force but the Rote Armee Fraktion!) were probably too close for our good old ZDF…

      They not only came to Munich twice and not once to Hamburg, they also left out West-Berlin! Pffh 😦


      • ScarecrowsAngel

        Now that you mention it, I believe you’re right. That would really have hit too close to home for comfort. I guess both reasons played into ZDF’s decision.


  6. How long do you think the German policemen stood around twiddling their thumbs with Flutey-Boy in custody after Lee told them “I’m an American agent. Hold him for me… I’ll be back.” and then disappeared off to save Ambassador Hearns? Do you think he really did go right back afterwards? 😀

  7. Do stuntmen wear padding under the costumes because that roll down the stairs looks like it must have hurt!
    Inga makes me think of the Terminator, soulless, driven, single track minded, intent on only killing. Wonder if her eyes glow red LOL
    I don’t envy Lee and Amanda sitting in those chairs all night, talk about a numb bum! Poor Ming vases, no wonder they’re worth so much people keep breaking them!
    Lee chasing Ortiz on the motorbike reminded me of The Great Escape film, similar scenery, very Steve McQueen only I think he did his own motorbike stunts.
    I too don’t see how Dotty and the boys missed a noisy dirt bike storming into the place but we shall gloss over that fact.
    The tag is kinda cute but quite frankly the best line goes to Dotty when she says Amanda is too young to know what she’s thinking. Ah Dotty the secrets she must keep 😉

    Just finished reading your wonderful post! I think Lee had a rip in his tuxedo due to his rippling arm muscles! LOL and *sigh* Also, I know you didn’t like Lee saying ‘just a bit of lint’ back to the baddie, but think of it this way–when the Baron dropped the lint in Amanda’s glass earlier, this was Lee’s way of getting back for that weirdness/rudeness. He was doing it for Amanda’s sake! 😀


  9. Amanda must have super sewing skills to repair Lee’s split armscye seam while riding on the motorcycle. HEHEHEHE!


  10. I wonder if there’s been a single ming vase in the history of TV that hasn’t ended up smashed by the end of the episode?

  11. Besides Sudden Death, is this the first time Lee and Amanda spend the night tied up together?


  12. Melissa Robertson

    I have always wondered that none of Amanda’s family saw them come in on the motorcycle, Lee stop the Baron, and then in the end with them talking. But, hey this is television 😉


  13. My youngest thinks the bit with “just a bit of lint” is funny. She doesn’t like that the Baron does that anyway. She says it makes the Baron petty, so she’s glad Lee gets back at him with it.


  14. IWSOD, I completely agree with your comment about the way the creators of this episode use the scenery in and around Munich–“glorious” is the word. And the climax is shot in the Marienplatz. It must’ve been very complicated to film there. I hope that stunt-Lee didn’t do any damage while climbing up the side of the Neues Rathaus.

    I love the scene where Amanda figures out the clue about the knight falling and the following one where she and Lee discuss whether she can come with him or not. She’s so determined to protect her family, and her quiet insistence convinces Lee to give in. Her protectiveness trumps his in this scene. It looks like the two of them completely forget about the presence of Billy, Francine, and Haddy; they’re focused only on each other and on the danger of the situation at the Marienplatz.

    Karen, lucky you to get to visit Munich today!

    • Hi Redgold.. I updated the post with your correction- thanks! I’m even more impressed with their use of the location now that I know it was the real marienplatz!!!

      What is the Neues Rathaus? is that the tower where he climbs?

      Yes!! well put.. Amanda’s protectiveness trumps Lee’s!! 🙂 awh!!!

      • Hi, IWSOD. The Neues Rathaus (New Town Hall) is the building with the Glockenspiel. Every time I see stunt-Lee scramble up it to reach the baron, I want to shout at him, “Don’t step on that gargoyle–you might break it!”

        Claudia, thanks for all of the wonderful information about the SMK sites in and around Munich. I would especially like to visit St. Emmeramsmühle, which looks lovely. We biked in the Englischer Garten, so we were close, but didn’t know it. On the next trip!

        Speaking of trips, IWSOD, I think your idea of an SMK European tour is wonderful! I can just picture knots of dedicated SMK fans wandering through the German meadows saying, “Do you think this is where Lee clocked the flute-boy baddie?”

        The way Amanda brushes the front of Lee’s jacket in this episode and others is so sweet. She just wants to have a little contact with him and show that she cares about him, and this is the only gesture she thinks he’ll accept, IMO.


  15. Hi! Here are the munich insights: The http://www.emmeramsmuehle.de is in munich near the “Englischer Garten”. The mountains we see at the action scene are 50 minutes away from munich, whooo Stunt-Lee is driving very fast!
    I love the scene when Stunt-Lee arrives with his fast bike behind the police-bus. Original-Lee just pops up to quick, what did he do with his bike? Just like my Kids throw on the floor??
    The location where Lee & Amanda arrive with the bike is the courtyard from the Glockenspiel at Marienplatz (you can see it in IWSOD’s first posted picture from this ep).
    The caffee with Amanda, Dotty & the boys is now the http://www.tambosi.de.
    And here it ends… but not the last visit in munich, and hey tegernsee is coming…
    Now I have one last look at Lee in a tux, Lee in a tux, Lee in a tux, ghjkghghjkghjjhf
    If I finde the time (and the knowledge) to form a map from this ep, I will email this to you IWSOD.
    Hey KARENRUDOLPH welcome to munich! Enjoy!


    • Hi Claudia!!! thanks for the correction on the marienplatz.. I’ve updated the post – and am even more impressed with the locations in this episode! they did well didn’t they!

      Lee must have been driving fast? rofl!! yes.. 50 minutes away in ohhhh 50 seconds! tee heee.. can anyone calculate how fast Lee was going? tee hee… lightspeed!

      ROFL! Did Lee do another one of his pop up shiny and new moments when he got off the bike? they are hilarious aren’t they! I can only guess if BB watched this now he would Laugh his butt off at this stuff. I know I am! I’m going to go take a look at that moment!!! We almost need someone who loves the smk stunt action to do a running commentary on the action..I know I miss lots of funny things because my attention fades during those looong sequences.. oh well.. but hey maybe together we can find all these moments huh?!

      A map of munich would be fabulous Claudia.. would you be able to tell us the locations smk filmed at?? in this and our man in tegernsee? that would be so interesting! I would make it into a post for those who want to follow on.. SMK teaches me geography! 🙂 haaaa..

      Oh gosh Claudia be careful there – don’t look directly at the tux!!! 🙂

      Thanks for sharing your local knowledge Claudia.. man I am busting to go to munich now!

      Anyone else think organising a european smk tour could be a good idea??!! A group of us could visit London, Munich, Tegernsee, salzburg.. ohhhhh joy!!! that would be amazing.. I would seriously be interested!! Maybe for the 40th! ( the ruby anniversary!)

      Anyone going to the 30th reunion in LA??

      • I think a European SMK tour would be fantastic! (As long as it is far enough in the future so that I have time to save up for it!)


      • I want to go to the 30th anniversary in LA. Does WB studios still give backlot tours?


        • Hi smkfan! I added a link on the blog home page to the official website for the 30th anniversary/reunion happening next year..BB was at the last one..but no idea who is going to this one- if KJ goes I’ll go!!!! hope that helps!

          I believe they do still run the back lot tours – I remember reading a post from Moxie over on yuku in the filming locations thread I think it was – where she detailed her experience of going on the tour and all the smk locations she saw – it was a while ago but she did a great job! and was very generous in sharing all her experiences with us.. so check that out and you should find what you are looking for – me? I want to go to all the Europe locations!
          Especially Cap d’afar ( LOL! ok.. I am joking I know they made up that place! 😉 ) but it sounds like it should be on the french riviera..

    Iwsod, never ever would I have discovered the sneaker of the person pushing the skip towards the camera. Kudos to your sharp eye!


    • Hi Karen!!! I have missed you!! 🙂 so lovely to hear from you!! Has it been a busy summer?
