This is the kind of episode that makes me love Northern Exposure. The Chris storyline is great, and classic Northern Exposure. Wacky and hilarious, and makes you wish you lived in a town like Cicely, instead of your home base.
This show is the best when it is quirky like this. I can not go into it, but the doctor's office scene is hilarious, and buy the DVD sets now, so you can see how great this show is, and will become.
The Maurice storyline i do not love, but still, i think it is a great example of how this show can be. Great.
