  1. Why not call it Vancouver Daily!!
    I luv anything about Alaska & that is why I was excited about this show!!!
    Disappointed to know it’s not in Alaska!!!

  2. How many shows filmed about New York not filmed in New York? about L.A. not filmed in L.A.? Atlanta season 3 was not in Atlanta. And IK for a fact Multiverse of Madness was filmed on this Earth. And as a Black Man (one of the first) born and raised in Alaska! After 2 major films and no network TV shows! This Sucks! The funny thing is with our Super Long Days in the summer, you could have filmed 2 or 3 seasons in 1 Summer Month! JS. Wait Until ABlaskans gets red lit to film here, where it is about.
