Northern Exposure I'd the only one mentioned in the article that I would be curious ti watch again, or try to do.
I'm not a nostalgic person so a lot of old TV series that made an impression in their day don't hold up well. The humor, the style, the writing quality, and almost always it seems the timing fare poorly.
I liked Northern Exposure because it was about finding something in the often too quirky at first glance characters and the plot was just a transparent device to unfold these qualities and flaws of the characters. Each character was very much in his own or it - fitting, I suppose, for Alaska, and any connection or friction between characters only amplified the individuals, the plot was rather beside the point.

Since I don't know if many DL denizens are even aware of the show, I'll add some detail: "When their youngest brother comes out as gay, two conservative men support him and help him navigate being openly gay in 1980s Philadelphia."
With Robert Walden, Paul Regina (RIP), Brandon Maggart, and Philip Charles MacKenzie.
You might remember Robert Walden from 'Lou Grant.' Very hunky at the time, as was Paul Regina. Maggart was the original gay bear and is the father of Fiona Apple. Philip Charles MacKenzie is straight but played a great flamer on the show.
Loved it at the time, and I remember it being the only TV show to feature two out characters. It may have been the first ever to feature ANY out gay character, but I'd have to research that.
I'd love to watch it again and see how it held up.

I ordered bootleg DVDs of "Frank's Place" from a collector — it's the only place they exist. The music rights would have been staggering for a regular DVD release.
Yes, it's as good as they say but too far ahead of its time. One show could be broad comedy, the next dead serious. And a sitcom filmed like a movie with no laugh track was risky business in the 1980s. It likely would have thrived on premium cable a few years later.
The cast is uniformly outstanding. If you get a chance to watch, do so.

"The Dead Dog Records" arc of the "Wiseguy" series has the same problem regarding music rights. The eight episodes of that Season 2 arc (arguably one of the best storylines of the series) were not included in the 2009 DVD set, because of the music.

I'd also love to see Brothers again, r24, especially the original uncut Showtime episodes. I only ever saw the show when it ran in syndication on a local independent station in the early 1990s. I'm sure they had to cut some content since it was originally a cable show and probably also cut scenes to add commercials. It was an enjoyable show and the reruns were timely as I was just coming out when they were airing. They ran for about a year and then I never saw the show anywhere else again. When LOGO network first started I hoped they would air it.

Tales from the Crypt. HBO must not own the rights because this show was fairly popular (as far as '90s premium cable goes) and spawned two movies.
Linc's on Showtime with Pam Grier and Golden Brooks (Maya on Girlfriends) was a fun update of Frank's Place. Rude Awakening with Sherliyn Fenn premiered at around the same time, based on the messy alcoholic life of Claudia Lonow (Diana on Knots Landing).

Also yes R22 Partners in Crime, which would have us believe Lynda as a photographer and Loni as a musician, and also that they could solve mysteries on the regular when in actuality the mystery of 2+2 would've probably been a challenge. It was two aging leading ladies in a Charlies Angels minus one format. And the mysteries were even dumber (don't forget Charlie's Angels almost always showed us the guilty party toward the top of the episode--it was a show about pursuit and collecting evidence, not solving whodunit type mysteries).
Carter is styled like a femme Linda Dano pretty much throughout. Eileen Heckart, who could out-act both ladies without even getting out of her chair, is the Bosley-esque older character. It's odd to see her in a scene with actors who can barely make you believe they're reading a newspaper or that someone is on the other end of the phone.
