    One of the best monologues in the whole series. Adam was my favorite character too.

    Wow. Surprisingly intelligent script writing for the time period.

    Friggin YT has removed almost every Northern Exposure video. Bastards! I have the DVDs so YT can get stuffed.

    I bought all those dvds, sadly though I watched the 6th season, which ruined all of it for me.

    Yeah, Dr Replacement was disappointing. NX should have stopped when Fleischman went back to NY.

    Yep... but I don't know if "pessimistic" is the right word for this. IMO, having grown up in the deep woods and spent most of my life in and out of it, the correct word would be "reality". There's about 1001 ways good ol mother nature can send one into the next plain of reality, at any given moment, for no reason whatsoever other than being at the wrong place at the wrong time, or taking one wrong step. Facts of life. Mother nature doesn't sugarcoat anything, and she always wins ;)

    ... said the guy that lives in a culvert

    ha ha... I've lived 70 years in Alaska. some of that series was OK, mostly it was BS

    none of it was filmed here (in AK)

    he's mostly right about nature though... it wants to kill you

    I really enjoyed Northern Exposure until Fleischman left. Some of the best characters on TV. Great scriptwriting.
    Maybe I should look into getting it on DVD.

    How timely. Or is it some things never change?

    I liked Northern Exposure.

    (I've also learned to not build a house with your sideload garage on the northern exposure if you also want trees;)).
