    That's a great question. Does Toronto have a Chinatown? I'd have to look at an episode again and see if they were trying to imitate New York.

    It was Toronto. When I was visiting the city years ago I saw David Carridine and the Ancient hanging out on set. Plus in the show you can see several land marks (the CN Tower, the Courthouse, the Royal Ontario Museum and in "Citizen Caine" they show the famous City Hall several times).

    Most of the cast is also Canadian - a requirement when filming in Canada.

    The show was filmed in Toronto, but took place in New York. A lot of US shows that are based in US cities are actually filmed in Canada.

    That does seem to happen quite a bit, Mickey.

    As I remember the name of the city was never mentioned, but the location of the city was mentioned several times throughout the show. It was located in the mid-west United States. It was also refered to as a big city. I always sort of imagined it to be Minneapolis, although I have never seen Minneapolis so I don't really know if it compares at all, or if Minneapolis even has a China Town.... but in my mind it does.

    Anyone else have any more ideas?

    KFTLC was filmed in Toronto (which has a pretty big Chinatown), and the fictional city was called Sloanville, after the exec producer Michael Sloan. I'll have to dig out my vids to see in which episode they first called the city Sloanville, but I'm pretty sure it's more than just a fandom thing.

    (Omg, I joined this site JUST for this show, haha.)

    I don't remember that name! I hope they release this series soon on DVD, so we can be more certain of these facts. Let us know if you find that name on your videos.

    It was filmed in Toronto but actually, despite everyone thinking it's supposed to be New York City - it was a fictional city called Sloanville.
