I love how they added scenes of L.A. into the show's opening sequence.

From Mike Most (Visual FX Supervisor): The driving sequence (with the guys sticking their heads through the sunroof) was on Ocean Ave. in Santa Monica. The amusement park and the skateboarding was on the Santa Monica Pier. Other scenes were shot in a high rise office building in downtown L.A. (the agent's office and the lawyer's conference room), a hotel in, I believe, West Hollywood (the pool), the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel (I believe that was the restaurant), and a club in Inglewood we've used before (the dance club, which was supposed to be the House of Blues - we used the same location for Ling's mud wrestling club a few years ago). The only sets used in this episode were the hotel room and the plane, as well as the scenes in the office. Everything else was on location.
