Northern Exposure - The Complete First Season Reviews
And we now have DirecTV.
So I now watch The Discovery Channel, ESPN, and other stuff in disgustingly perfect High Definition.
Needless to say, it is a very small town with some very peculiar folks. The first Cicilian we meet is Ed, by far my favorite character. He is a young native boy in a leather jacket and jeans. Very smiley. I love him. Then we meet Maurice Minnifield, the towns "rich guy". He owns something outrageous like 15,000 acres of land and has a huge house with guns, dead animal art, and a very nice 1960-something Caddillac convertible. Anyway, the cast of characters ranges from sweet-but-strange native americans to practical handy women to an obnixious New York Jewish doctor. All of the characters are still likeable, even though there is tension on every front. Well, maybe Maurice isn't that likeable but as the season goes on, you kind of warm up to him. Hell, I even like Shelly and I never liked her watching reruns on A&E. She is a little annoying but each character, taken for who they are supposed to be, is very loveable.
It's smart, it's funny, it's insightful. I recommend it very highly.
And John Corbett is in it. He was sooooooo....mmmm.
