A: As with so many shows, it depends on where you look. While I have not yet found a channel currently replaying the show, all six seasons of the 1990-95 comedy-drama have been released on DVD in a complete-series package and in individual season sets.
That said, there have been complaints about the DVDs substituting music for what was heard on the original telecasts. If you don't want to own the show, check your local library's collection.
Q: I was watching "Rizzoli & Isles" and at the end it said it was in memory of Lee Thompson Young (1984-2013) and then showed pictures of the young black man on the show. Has he died and what from? He was so young. He will be missed.
A: Lee Thompson Young, who played Detective Barry Frost on the TNT drama, died Aug. 19; he reportedly committed suicide. Young was 29 years old and had been acting for almost 20 years, notably as star of "The Famous Jett Jackson" for the Disney Channel.
Writer-director Wes Craven, who knew Young from 2007's "The Hills Have Eyes 2," said on Twitter that "he was a pro, gifted and warm."
Q: I am writing to inquire about the television series "Cedar Cove." I understand it was a book series first written by Debbie Macomber. I love it and would like to read the books. But where do I start?
A: The Hallmark Channel drama is indeed based on books by Macomber, the author of more than 100 novels, including those about Cedar Cove. (You can see more about Macomber, including lists of her books, at www.debbiemacomber.com.)
