From 'Matrix' to 'Chuck': The Warner Bros. Studio Tour (Part 1)

Today's cuppa: Arnold Palmer with pink lemonade (it's hot here in LA!)

Sorry for the light posting lately -- what with big interviews (Sarah Palin), big set visits ("Law & Order: Los Angeles," "CSI: Miami," "NCIS: Los Angeles," and, most recently, History's upcoming "Top Gear") and big stories for both print and Zap2it.com, my teakettle's been set on permanent boil.

But I haven't forgotten my Cuppers, and I promise to spend more time with you in the future.

Expect new goodies tomorrow and early next week, but for now, here's a look behind the scenes at Warner Bros. Studios in Los Angeles. As part of the Television Critics Association Press Tour earlier this year, WB took some of the TV critics a trip around the studio (I've lived here for years, and had never done it!).

This slideshow begins with the prop house and the display of movie and TV vehicles. Later on, I'll share some of my shots of the backlot.

Enjoy!
