TV show description:
Young Jewish doctor Joel Fleischman (Rob Morrow) attended medical school thanks to financial support from the state of Alaska. To repay the loan, he’s obligated to practice in Anchorage for four years but ends up reassigned to the small and remote town of Cicily.

The community’s odd and easy-going characters include former astronaut Maurice Minnifield (Barry Corbin), former felon Chris Stevens (John Corbett), beauty pageant winner Shelly Marie Tambo Vincoeur (Cynthia Geary), bar owner Holling Vincoeur (John Cullum), mild-mannered Ed Chigliak (Darren E. Burrows), general store owner Ruth-Anne Miller (Peg Phillips), Native American receptionist Marilyn Whirlwind (Elaine Miles), and bush pilot Maggie O’Connell (Janine Turner), who develops an ongoing love-hate relationship with Joel.

    How i miss Northern Exposure. I found it a most unique Series and very well produced. The show runs a revolving set of situations at all times among the Characters. The Characters themselves ranging from the rich to the poor to the strange and weird to the educated and also a mixture of people all toss together in one town. Indians, Canadians, A Jewish Doctor. Talk about making things interesting with this group. it kept the show alive. I must admit that the radio DJ and his mixed Philosophy, got a bit old to hear 2 or 3 times an episode. However the love/hate relationship Between Maggie and Joel would both make ya laugh, or tear your heart out, or make you love them both. I for one found Maggie most frustrating and beautiful all at the same time. watch the series and you will see what i mean. She could really deliver a loving, longing look of desire towards Joel. you will see her character calm down a bit and she does not want to conflict with him. The twisted minds of the people made it just a bit crazy to watch. Ballerinas in the street. Shelly Singing everything she says, just adds a touch of craziness to it and makes it funny. The really Versitile character of Adam made me laugh the hardest because he hates people in the show so badly that he comes off with a string of insults that had me dying with laughter. He was involved with military operation in his past. he is an ace Chef and he is married to a hypercondriac . Hey just watch the series. You will not be sorry. it was one of the best produced show ever and the acting is tops. I got the entire series on Dvd off Amazon. . I miss it and wished it could have went further than it did. How i wished it would have. I loved it a lot.
