Budget cuts also scuttled a planned revival of the series in the early 2000s, though a TV movie sequel (albeit with only a few original cast members since Gerussi and Clothier had long since died) was made in 2002. See more »
Wow. Until I stumbled across this entry on IMDB, I had no idea that 'Nick' and 'Relic' were both gone. That is sad. I watched this as a kid growing up in northern Maine, we got Channel 6 outta St John really clear, and of course this, 'Mr Dress Up' and 'the Friendly Giant' were staples of a kid's TV viewing at the time.
They don't make them like this anymore, 'Beachcombers' kinda fit in with the Waltons, Little House, Disney flix, all wholesome kinda family entertainments, nothing too scary or controversial. It was shot right there on location in Gibson's BC, it had many locals-Inuits, Japaneses, French, etc come and go too-which is Realistic for the BC Coast. Not tokenism, just-opening the window and showing what's out there.
Good show, good memories, 'Nick' vs. 'Relic' was always fun.
*** outta ****
