    What’s next, a Picket Fences reboot?

    As long as this revival trend was mostly limited to comedies, it was fine. But drama is a big no from me.

    I figured this one was inevitable at some point. But I think what the producers are missing here is that since Northern Exposure hasn’t been on the air in decades; has rarely been in syndication or streaming there will be little to no interest from millennial viewers for this one. Heck, the last DVD release of the show was way back in 2007.

    I can’t see this being a big attention getter or ratings grabber.

    I agree completely.

    The one positive outcome, if any, is that CBS might decide to make the original series available to stream on CBS All Access, hopefully circumventing the music licensing issue that has prevented Northern Exposure‘s fans (and anyone interested in watching this Emmy-winning landmark 1990s TV series) from purchasing the DVDs.

    This is the weirdest shit I’ve seen all year. Reboots are good for certain shows, sure. There is certainly a nostalgia that goes along with watching them (again). I watch The Conners (Roseanne). Even without Roseanne, as much as I miss her on the show, it still works. Last Man Standing has been great for FOX, and Fuller House has been huge for Netflix. But certain shows just really have no place in today’s television world. I’m pretty sure Murphy Brown is going to be a “one and done”, but if I’m wrong, it won’t be THAT surprising. But Northern Exposure? Really? I just don’t see it.

    The reboot premise isn’t bad at all. Barry Corbin and John Callum are still kicking around, so it wouldn’t be out of sorts at all for Joel to return to one of rhoaw character’s funerals and then gradually get sucked back into Alaskan life again. That is, if that’s the way they’re gonna go to begin with. I’d only be concerned about the demand for something like this, but CBS seems to be the place for these kind of lighter, dramedic reboots. Not entirely the same, but “MacGyver,” “Hawaii Five-O,” and “Magnum P.I.” are all there and working.
