    For interior shots were there was a window looking out, it appeared to be mid strip. Exterior shots seems like it was located where the Tropicana sits.

    I loved that show, to bad it ended on a cliffhanger. IIRC the show was a victim of the writers strike.

    With this quarantine, I've got nothing but time for stories.

    So here's a story.

    My second ever trip to Vegas was for our honeymoon in 2005, which was a couple of years into the run of Las Vegas (the series). With all of my wife's other medical issues, this was about five months before she had reconstructive back surgery so as soon as possible after getting the car, she needed to stop for something to drink to take a pain pill. This McDonalds is basically the very first opportunity to stop on Las Vegas Boulevard after exiting the airport (this was before the consolidated Rental Car Facility).

    Post-trip, we fire up NBC on Friday night to watch Las Vegas and Scout's Honor. it looked like the Montecito is located on top of this McDonalds.

    Making it (to us) the Montecito McDonalds... even 15 years later.

    Personally, I was a bigger fan of the other bunny show actress... Sarah Silverman from Greg the Bunny.

    I never understood why you couldn’t stream this show from any service. It’s like whoever owned the rights didn’t want to make money off of it.

    I want to watch the entire series but I can't find it streaming anywhere. I am hoping E! picks it up on demand after the marathon runs.

    On demand would be better, don’t have to see the commercial E! airs. I don’t know who these Bella twins are but I don’t want to watch their show, ever

    I was in the Excal/Mandalay tram car around the time of the series, and James Caan was in our car. He got out at Luxor with a few people. Fun to have a celebrity sighting.

    It's a TV show.......not a Documentary.
    The Casino doesn't exist....nor the characters
    Why would the rest of Vegas HAVE to be " correct ? "
    .
    I've checked it out......and just for Marcil.....whatever her name is ?
    She did " Loreal ' make up commercials.

    I just watched one a day ago and was trying to find it On Demand, no luck. On my service you can't fast forward on Demand. I'd love to be able to record the entire series and watch it when I want.

    I liked Molly Sims’ work in that lonely island video with Adam Samberg, Oscar worthy work

    Saw this too late.
    Was able to only record about 7 shows.
    Really enjoyed it.

    For some reason, I never watched this show when it was on. But I caught a couple of episodes on Sat, and really enjoyed them. I'll keep watching.

    Yes, in the vacant lot across from Luxor. Actually, that's the only place I've ever seen it.

    It changed. See earlier posts. In one episode a million dollars blew out of a something story window at the Montecito (plot was about an annoying gambler who won a million on his last dollar at an oversized slot machine and, of course, wanted the money all in cash—up in his comped suite the money gets dumped on the bed and a gust kicks up on the balcony and the money flies—sort of like the scene when Lara Flynn Boyle flies off the roof). Anyway, the money floats out onto the strip and appears to head south past the Flamingo which would put the Montecito somewhere around the Venetian—that episode was Season 1/Episode 17.
