Okay, who wants to talk 'Northern Exposure'? I don't really know how to make this tread. I think we are all done watching the first 3 seasons. If this discussion is a success we could create later on another tread for s.4, etc. So, this is s.1 to 3, please no spoilers about the upcoming seasons!
What i LOVE about 'Northern Exposure' is the intelligence. It's in intelligent show that promotes knowledge. I love to hear Christ talk about whatever he feels like, or the film discussion Ed has with everyone, or all the fantastic things Marilin does.
This series is getting older, but it doesn't feel dated. The dialogue is great and the stories always fun. It is so well done it doesn't need to be recent to capture the publics imagination.
I was happy about the end of s.3. There were two unresolved issues that stated to drag along. Joel hating Cicely and the Joel and Maggie relationship. Although the situation between J & M. did changes in s.3, i think it will still be around a long time. I really like the last ep. of s.3 'Cicely' when Joel finally learns to appreciate and love his adoption town. I feel like the series can move on from there.
And i can't wait to see where s.4 will lead us.
