where would it be?
I thought this might be an interesting topic that I don't remember seeing before. Name off some of the fictional homes, neighborhoods, towns, cities or other dwelling places (boats, spaceships, or whatever else) in TVLand that you'd most like to live if you were able. It might be the fictional people that attract you to that place. Or perhaps it's just the beauty or atmosphere of the location itself that is appealing to you. Whatever the reason, tell us where you'd actually like to live if you could. Not just visit (as there are probably too many places like that to name), but take up residence for the foreseeable future. To start, I'll name a few.
Mayberry, N.C. - TAGS. This just seems like such a great little community that I can't imagine not being able to go get a haircut at Floyd's, or stop in at the Blue Bird Diner for a meal, or just be able to hang out with the friendly folks there. Definitely one of my ideal fictional worlds.
Mayfield - LITB, Springfield - FKB, Hillsdale - Ozzie & Harriet, or any of the other similar towns from that era would be attractive to me. I liked the feeling of community and stability that these shows often conveyed. I'm not sure I'd want to live in any of the large cities (no offense to those that would or do), although the thought of catching the glimpse of a superhero in Gotham or Metropolis would be neat. I'm more apt to prefer the smaller town setting, even though I lived the majority of my life in a huge city. No, I think I'd be more apt to choose some place like Sparta - In the Heat of the Night, but then again the murder rate seemed high for such a small city, so maybe not that particular town.
I'm trying to think if I'd like to live in Dodge City - Gunsmoke, or any of the other old west towns. Not really sure that would be my thing. Wouldn't mind a cattle drive with Gil, Rowdy and the rest - Rawhide. But it seems like it'd be anything but a picnic, so probably not for a prolonged period of time.
In my younger days I'd have loved to live on the Seaview - VTTBOTS. Not sure if anything from space would have really been appealing as a permanent dwelling place. The Jupiter Two or any of the Enterprises may have been neat to visit, but I don't think I'd really want to live in them. Even as seemingly endless as the T.A.R.D.I.S. is, I can't say I'd want to live in it on a regular basis. Of course we know these are all vehicles, so perhaps none of them really come into play with my question.
How about Bedrock - Flintstones or Orbit City - Jetsons? Bedrock seemed neat, but it could go from a small town to a larger city depending on the plot.
Parts of Honolulu and the surrounding area certainly looked good back in the late 60's with Hawaii-Five 0. Doubt I'd turn that down if I could live there in that era. Not sure it'd be the same today.
I'm probably missing a bunch, but that's a start.
