TAR locations in popular culture
« on: September 29, 2012, 09:29:04 PM »
We don't seem to have a thread for those instances where a location used on TAR shows up elsewhere in popular culture (TV, films, books, what have you), so that's the idea behind this thread.

The impetus was the appearance of Bethesda Fountain in Central Park, New York City (start point of TAR 1) in the Doctor Who episode, "The Angels Take Manhattan," which premiered tonight in the U.K., the U.S. and in Canada. If you're familiar with the Weeping Angels, it needs no explanation.

It appears that hundreds, if not thousands of people were in Central Park the day of filming some months ago so how no one mentioned it then I honestly don't know.

The Start Line of TAR15 is in the Pussycat Doll's music video for 'Don't Cha'

A new show on BBC America (it's a reality competition involving chefs from the US and the UK), Chef Race: U.S. v. U.K., used the Santa Monica pier as its start point, just as TAR did some seasons ago. This show is going to some first and final leg cities, including Las Vegas, Denver, Chicago, and New York, so there may be more in the coming weeks. (First episode aired tonight, but it will normally air on Tuesday nights.
