Some of my favorite TV series have been set in small towns (mostly fictional towns). One of my all-time favorites was Northern Exposure, a CBS dramedy set in Cicely, Alaska. Another was Gilmore Girls, a WB drama set in Stars Hollow, Connecticut (now featured in a new short series on Netflix).

With most of these shows, the town was as much of a character as all the strange and wonderful people who dwelled in the town.

Of course, there were many other TV series set in small towns but in most of those cases, the town played a small role. This is especially true of the many westerns which have been set in small towns (Bonanza, Gunsmoke, The Rifleman, Wyatt Earp, etc.).
