I got that second chance with the 'Men In Trees' pilot on Friday night when I got home from the movies. But this time I never made it to the second episode which followed it.

Sorry, but it just didn't grab me.

I was rather neutral about it, unlike my brother Bill, who sat there loudly grousing that we didn't need another TV show set in Alaska after 'Northern Exposure'.

Speaking as a Televisiologist, this attitude doesn't make sense to me. Would we ever have 'Taxi', 'Rhoda', 'Friends', 'Seinfeld' or 'How I Met Your Mother' if we never allowed another sitcom set in New York City after 'I Love Lucy'?

My brother can be a jerk. All three of them can be. It must be hereditary.

Wait a minute.....

At any rate, I don't see myself heading back north to Elmo, Alaska, any time soon.

thank you - missed it but sounded like you described... wonder if people wouldn't be complaining if it was set in Yellowknife, NYT, Canada? Should it matter?

Thx for the link.
