Popular TV Show Visits Pendleton — But Locals Are Furious
The CW channel's hit show "Supernatural" explored a supernatural event in Pendleton, Oregon! Locals should be excited for the notoriety! The Round Up and visitors bureau must love that kind of free publicity! So why is everyone upset?
It turns out the show's producers never actually set foot in Pendleton, OR. They filmed the entire episode by finding businesses elsewhere with the word "Round Up" in their name and filming in front of THOSE!
Apparently the same thing happened previously with the show Criminal Minds (S8E5, "The Good Earth").
The show is actually filmed in Vancouver, British Columbia, so it wouldn't be surprising if film crews drove over THEIR east side for filming. At least the landscape is similar.
The episode is called, "About a Boy" and aired in February.
This is a random scene from the show just in case you've never seen it:
