Trivia

David Marciano explained in a 1995 LA Times article on the series that the dead caribou seen in the pilot was a real caribou that they killed for use in filming. The Inuit people told the producers that they killed the caribou and did not use it for it's true purpose and that unless they had a proper burial for the caribou, the show would be cursed. Marciano then explained that the show was then cursed with such incidents as a plane use for production crashing and a special effects explosion nearly blowing up a location (the El Mocambo rock club). So the producers went back and gave the caribou a proper burial. See more »

A BREATH OF FRESH AIR
19 December 2002 | by (Memphis, USA) – See all my reviews

This series was a wonderful change of pace, a TRUE breath of fresh air in a medium that strives for mediocrity. It is so boring getting constantly bombarded in show after show by Hollywood's bogus philosophy that "Nice Guys Finish Last". The good guys usually win but not without acting like the bad guys. So here is a novel idea, and more importantly a reminder that there are ideals and values that we would like to see lived out. The Nice Guy Does Finish First for a change. Who wouldn't want this guy to be your neighbor or friend. It is truly a shame that the networks did little to support the show and practically everything they could to let it die. This reminds of the show Christy which had a HUGE audience and often won its time slot (proven by the Nielsens) but was dropped because it did not do as well in a couple of markets that are the network favorites (I.E. New York, and L.A.). Nice to know that 2 cities control everything that Americans get to watch.
