Northern Exposure (Season 2) DVD Review
The recipient of 39 Emmy nominations, including four for Outstanding Drama Series in just a short six season stint, Northern Exposure is one of the more interesting television shows of its decade. The offspring of St. Elsewhere creators Joshua Brand and John Falsey, Northern Exposure originally aired in July of 1990, but only lasted five years because critics loved the show more than audiences. Northern Exposure centers around the life of a recent medical school graduate named Joel Fleishman (Rob Morrow) who, not reading the fine print in his student loans, realizes he must practice medicine in the frozen tundra of Alaska. Even worse, he'll be the only doctor in the tiny town of Cicely, a place populated by oddball characters of every sort such as ex-NASA astronaut Maurice Minnifield, bush pilot Maggie O'Connell (Janine Turner), KBHR radio deejay Chris Stevens (John Corbett), aspiring filmmaker Ed Chigliak (Darren E. Burrows), and bartending couple Holling (John Cullum) and Shelly Vincoeur (Cynthia Geary).
It's a fine recipe for some hilarious situations. The Northern Exposure (Season 2) DVD features a number of hilarious episodes including the season premiere "Goodbye to All That" in which Joel learns that Elaine has left to marry a judge several years her elder. Meanwhile, Holling buys a satellite dish but regrets it when Shelly becomes addicted to international TV… Other notable episodes from Season 2 include "All is Vanity" in which Maggie persuades Joel to pose as her boyfriend in order to trick her father, and "Slow Dance" in which Shelly becomes jealous when Holling enjoys a reunion with a woman from his past… Below is a list of episodes included on the Northern Exposure (Season 2) DVD: Episode 9 (Goodbye to All That) Air Date: 04-08-1991 Episode 10 (The Big Kiss) Air Date: 04-15-1991 Episode 11 (All is Vanity) Air Date: 04-22-1991 Episode 12 (What I Did For Love) Air Date: 04-29-1991 Episode 13 (Spring Break) Air Date: 05-06-1991 Episode 14 (War and Peace) Air Date: 05-13-1991 Episode 15 (Slow Dance) Air Date: 05-20-1991.
