Your Questions About Las Vegas Tv Show

Robert asks…

How would you compare modern pilgrimages with the Canterbury Tales?

What would be some modern pigramages to compare and contrast to the one in the Canterbury Tales, and how would you do so?

Administrator answers:

I recently went to Las Vegas to please a certain relative, and to please her further went to The Gold and Silver Pawn Shop, where the reality show, “Pawn Stars” is filmed. It’s a shabby little place you would never give a second look, if it wasn’t on TV. However, people were lined up out the door and practically around the block to gawk at the place and its contents — which, apart from some curiosities, are not too different from what you might see at any pawn shop.

So my point is that people have come rom all over the nation to gawk at this modern “church” of fame — the true religion of many of us.

Lizzie asks…

What should I get my mom and dad for Christmas?

They are always doing so much for me so i want to get them a nice gift. So let me tell you about them. My mom loves to play piano,cook,run,and likes to look at the things in the coach store but never buys anything there. My dad likes the two and a half men show, to cook on the grill, and pretty much any sports show on tv. I know I asked this more than once but I need more ideas. Thanks in advance

Ken asks…

What Casino is used in TV show Vegas ?

Does anyone know what casino is used in this show, on TV they call it the Montecito. I go to Vegas often and I know there is not a Montecito casino in Vegas.

Administrator answers:

The location of the fictional Montecito has changed from season to season. Some of the first episodes were taped at the Mandalay Bay which is located south of the intersection of Tropicana and the Las Vegas Strip (next to Luxor)
Because of its similarity to Mandalay Bay, many of the show visuals place the Montecito at the far southern end of The Strip, albeit usually across the street from Mandalay Bay on the airport side of Las Vegas Boulevard. The exact location and rotation of the building seems to vary a lot within this area, indeed the CGI zoom shots of the building exterior in the season two episode, “Montecito Lancers”, shows the building in three slightly differing locations for three different shots. In Season 5, the Montecito seems to have the consistent location across from Mandalay Bay.

Many of Mandalay Bay’s interiors and exteriors (including its wave pool) have been used as Montecito exteriors, although (according to the Internet Movie Database) the actual set of Montecito is located at Culver Studios, in Culver City, California, so the interiors are a replica of the Mandalay Bay. These studios are where Gone With The Wind was filmed. The Season 3 set of Las Vegas has been said to be the biggest set for a TV show ever.

During the first season of the show, many of the Montecito’s suites overlooked various parts of the middle part of the Strip, placing the hotel near where The Venetian, Flamingo Las Vegas, or The Mirage are currently, before the more consistent location at the southern end of the Strip was finalized.

During the first season, except for the pilot episode, the sets were built as needed for filming.

In Season 3, Ed Deline’s office appears to be in the middle of the strip, overlooking Harrah’s, Caesar’s Palace, The Mirage, and The Venetian, which puts the Montecito near where Treasure Island is located. This is inconsistent with the flyover shots of the Montecito, which would place Ed’s office over two miles away. Closer examination of the window scene shows that The Mirage’s marquee over their driveway has been edited to read “Montecito”. In season 4, episode 2 there is a scene in Ed Deline’s office where again we can see an overview of The Mirage and Caesar’s Palace. Again it’s a confirmation that Ed Deline’s office would be where Treasure Island is located.

According to an episode that originally aired in December 2005, the Montecito is located about 1.5 miles from Wynn Las Vegas. It’s possible that this distance is in a straight line (“as the crow flies”) as opposed to a reference to actual driving distance. This distance is inconsistent with long shots that place the Montecito near the airport and Mandalay Bay, but is in line with Season 3 visual references noted above.

Other episodes show aerial shots of the Montecito that make it appear to be situated at the corner of Giles St. And Reno Ave., about half a mile from Mandalay Bay

Chris asks…

Las Vegas Trip Help 10 Points to best answer!?

So I am turning 21 this summer and my best friends and I are planning on going to Las Vegas. Can anyone give me some ideas as to the coolest places to stay, the best things to do etc? Fun shows, game shows, sights… Best answer with info gets 10 points! Thanks so much!

Administrator answers:

I have been in Vegas since 1970 and feel www.lasvegasnow.com is a great link site, run by Channel 8 TV.   You do not have to gamble or drink to have fun.But here are great suggestions.  Do one corner of casinos a day, there are 3 major corners.The cheaper places to stay are CircusCircus (has a manor/motel too); Tropicana, ImperialPalace, and Sahara.  CORNER – NYNY, MonteCarlo, Excalibur/castle, Luxor/pyramid, Mandalay Bay, Tropicana, MGM GrandCORNER – Treasure Island, Mirage, Venetian, Palaza, WynnCORNER – CaesarsPalace, Bill’s, Flamingo, Bellagio, BallysYou can walk from Mirage to Caesars easily.  Things to do Caesars Forum Shops with 2 statutes come alive shows, MandalayBay Sharf Reef, Mirage Secret Garden Sigfriend Roy (sorry volcano down until Oct), Venetian Shops with free entertainment and inside-outside gondolas rides for fee, MGM free walk thru lion house, CircusCircus Adventure Dome (indoor amusement park); Venetian Guggenheim Museum, Bellagio has 2 art museums 1 free, Paris Effiel Tower Ride and Madame Trousauds Wax Museum.  Tropicana still has Titanic Exhibit and Bodies (real bones in parts).  As far as the night clubs, there is an entrance fee but watch out for hands requesting MORE $$ and don’t give like Pure, etc.  Try Wynn’s.There are 5 Cirque shows – TI/Mystere considered by locals the best, no bad seats and cheapest; Mirage/Love Beattles tribute; O! A water version of Mystere; Zumanity adult version; & KA a dream version.  But there are hordes of other shows like Caesars/Bette, Trop/Follies; Ballys/Juballee.  Make sure you try a buffet or two.  Bring a swim suit.  Put THREE dollars no less into MegaBucks for a chance at 18millionIf you drink at the slots or tables, tip the cocktail for a nice return free drink/s and the dealer if you are leaving the table a winner.Sights to see off Strip – Red Rock Canyon, Hoover Dam, Valley of Fire, Springs Preserve, Red Rock Resort, Green Valley Ranch Resort, and on and on.  Have fun in my beautiful city in the middle of the Mohave Desert.

Daniel asks…

Is it just me or are criminals getting smarter?

With all the shows on TV like csi and such doesn’t it seem to be more like a home course on covering your tracks or”Being a better crook 101″?

Administrator answers:

It’s not just you. Interestingly, I had this conversation with my sheriff today. (I’m a lawyer who represents a county, including a detention center and sheriff’s department) My sheriff truly believes that criminal activity has changed since CSI became popular. He told me he never used to see bleach used to clean up a crime scene. He gave me numerous other examples, all of which I had seen on CSI. Ironically, I love the original CSI–the one set in Las Vegas–and so does the sheriff. However, he feels almost obligated to watch it to keep current with his job.

Richard asks…

Reviews on University of Nevada Las Vegas?

I’m from Alabama and just applied to UNLV (University of Nevada Las Vegas) for Fall 2010. I’m moving there mainly to be with my boyfriend, but I’m already attending a community college here, so I’ll be a transfer student. Anyway, I’ve done some research and all, and I know the “basics” of the university, but I would just like more in-depth reviews. I’ll have to start out in a dorm for a semester till he finishes his house, and I know the dorms aren’t the best but which ones should I avoid?

Administrator answers:

Campus LifeUNLV is a gateway for opportunities. As a member of the campus community, everything you need is at your fingertips. From student activities and cultural events to tasty dining options and wireless locations, we offer something for everyone.

An Active Campus
Students are always on the move at UNLV. You can play intramurals or take fitness classes at the rec center, hang out with friends in the Student Union game room, or cram for an exam over coffee at the library’s Book ‘n Bean.

Interested in the arts? Check out an event at the Performing Arts Center or visit our museums and galleries. These modern facilities on our growing campus give students every opportunity to interact with each other and explore their interests.

Beyond Campus
But that’s not all. Your UNLV experience expands beyond the physical borders of campus. Take a hike at Red Rock Canyon. Ski the slopes of Mount Charleston. Take in a show on the Strip. Whatever you want to do, UNLV’s unique location puts you just minutes away. Always remember: Life at UNLV extends far beyond the classroom.

Sharon asks…

How many more Americans will be murdered by Muslim Terrorists if Obama is re-elected?

How many more Americans will be murdered by Muslim Terrorists if Obama is re-elected and continues to fail to protect , defend, aid or rescue Americans again ?

How many more requests for Security or Military Rescue will be denied to Americans if Obama is re-elected again ?
I guess Obama will try to catch up with the number of people killed on 9/11/01 by allowing more & more Terrorist Attacks killing more & more Americans ?

Administrator answers:

I suspect that there will be a lot of “bumps in the road”, probably even mountains in the road.
I won’t be surprised if the commander in chief (no capital letters in order to show my disrespect) initiates a post humus court martial for those who disobeyed his orders and tried to help Stevens.
Barack Obama is a sorry excuse for a Commander in Chief.
I heard the interview with Charles Wood, father of slain Navy Seal Tyrone Woods, who now KNOWS that his son died while begging for help and none was given.
Obama had a campaign stop in Las Vegas to attend.
I don’t understand how Barack Obama can come on TV or stand before Americans at a campaign event.

Barack Obama literally makes me sick.
He is a disgrace to every man and woman who ever wore a Military Uniform.

Linda asks…

How much taxes do they take out of a sweepstakes winning?

I won $25,000 in a sweepstakes and I live in North Carolina. This was NOT a gambling contest, it was free to enter. I’m wondering how much taxes they will take out of this.

Administrator answers:

It’s 25% of the prize if you provide proper ID etc. It’s 28% if you don’t. That’s just withholding, not your actual tax liability. Doesn’t have to be gambling. TV shows have to withhold on prizes.
