Entire first series of the popular American comedy. In 'Pilot - Northern Exposure', aspiring New Yorker doctor Joel Fleischman (Rob Morrow) finds that the only place he can get a much-needed scholarship is Alaska, in the nowhere town of Cicely. 'Brains, Know-How and Native Intelligence' sees Joel asked to help Ed's medicine man uncle, who refuses to have the prostate operation which will save his life. In 'Soapy Anderson', Maggie and Joel are left 100 acres of land by hermit Soapy Anderson when he dies, in the hope that it will bring them together. Joel, however, only sees the opportunity to sell up and return to New York. 'Dreams, Schemes and Putting Greens' sees Joel attempting to help Maurice sell the Alaskan Riviera to two Japanese businessmen in the hope that he will be able to play golf at the resort they plan to build. In 'Russian Flu', Joel's long-awaited reunion with girlfriend Elaine is put on hold when Cicely falls prey to a flu epidemic. 'Sex, Lies and Ed's Tape' sees the pregnant Shelly distraught that her husband wants a divorce in order to wed her best friend, despite the fact that the father of her child is in fact a man called Holling who wasn't even aware she was marrried! In 'A Kodiak Moment', Maurice asks Chris to become his son when he realizes that he has no heir to the Minnifield empire. Finally, 'Aurora Borealis' finds Joel being educated by Ed in the legend of a bigfoot-like creature called Adam who is said to roam the Alaskan outerlands.

Even Season 1, however, has considerable charm, and not having seen most of these since the first UK transmissions, it was a nostalgic experience for me as all these 'old friends' reappeared. Re-seeing the first appearances of characters like Holling and Maurice was a bit startling - nostalgia had mellowed their memories and I'd forgotten just how brooding and sinister Holling was, as well as what a racist blowhard Maurice was. Chris has less prominence in the show than he later came to have, apart from the final episode of Season 1, the rousing 'Aurora Borealis', which also features guest star Alan Arkin as Adam the psychopathic chef.
By the time Northern Exposure was cancelled, it was, in truth, looking a bit exhausted - certainly the episodes after Joel returned to New York were below par. So it's nice to return to the beginnig and remind yourself what was so appealing about this series in the first place. I see from the other reviews posted here that many viewers appear to be of like mind, so let's let Universal know - we want more!
he gets sent to a 800 people village in the middle of nowhere
It is a beautifull comedy(but not a sitcom) , well acted well scripted and more importtanly with lots of charm without ever being gross, a class act.
the main atraction is the love/hate relationship of the doctor Rob Morrow with his landlady (janine Turner).
he represents the go getter newyorker with lots of ambitions and totally frustrated of him being conned to be in Cecily( alaska) for four years.
She on the other hand is a mixture of headstrongness and sarcasm but with a sweetside beneath (if he can find it that is)
the 2DVD are nearly six hours so it is also value for money.
All i can say is i remembered fondly this series when i was 15, i just saw it again at 31 and i am still charmed.
Northern Exposure has been a long time coming to DVD, and I wait impatiently for series two, when it really got into its stride.
There are very very few things that I recommend totally and completely - but this DVD is definately one of them. Buy it, settle into it and ENJOY

Advertised as having subtitles and it states same on the box. However there are no subtitles, which as I have a hearing problem renders the DVD useless to me. Read morePublished 14 months ago by Helen Holdcroft
