CBS (ended 1995)
I love Northern Exposure. We don't have television and so I never saw it when it was on the air. I bought season 1 and then eventually the rest as they came out. It is our winter show. We watch an episode almost every week night during the winter. We've seen them all through almost 3 times now (we're currently on the last season. The first couple of years weren't as good as the later seasons. The Joel/Maggie fued got old real fast. I just could not stand Maggie and Joel was boring. They got more likable later on. I really started loving the show when the writers began exploring the lives of the other residents. I found the other people much more interesting than Joel and Maggie. The weird thing for me was Marilyn. The first time I went through the series I found her her amusing but by the third time I didn't like her at all. I found her quite cold and self absorbed. My husband and I always wonder: Why didn't anybody ever punch out Maurice? Also I think the actress who plays Shelly is not like that at all. My husband thinks she is. What do you think?
