I saw that show tonite, too. The opening shots are of Portland but the rest of the show looks like it's filmed in Vancouver.

Is that Vancouver, Washington, or Vancouver, BC?

Vancouver BC. I agree that it was shot there. The Portland photos are stock cityscape iamages. All the other location shots had to have been Vanc. BC as I didn't recognize, or downright knew it wasn't Portland, the streets and buildings shown.
Enjoyed the show and will definitely DVR it.

Vancouver BC is a popular shooting location because of the huge variety of outdoor settings available, government subsidies and because it is in the same time zone as L.A.

And less restrictive union work rules in Canada.

It's Vancouver, BC. Looks like the Waterfront station parking lot and the Vancouver Art Gallery.

A really good tv show that IS being filmed in Portland is "Leverage" on TNT. Of course, in this series Portland is standing in for Boston. But Portland's recognizable in the outdoor shots.
