    Yep!

    Without the real music it wasn't half as intriguing...I had first two seasons and just donated them as I couldn't watch them anymore without the real music!

    Of course we know how much music plays a role in movies.

    Supposedly a reboot in planning but I'd not hold out for much....

    We liked that a lot. Last time I looked I couldn’t find a way to watch it in these sophisticated modern times. I resorted to buying my wife the “full seasons Rockford Files on DVD!” as a gift quite a few years ago as that’s perhaps her favorite show ever, but don’t want to travel that old road right now. I’ll go search.

    Ok, that was fast. Don’t bother searching.

    When I say I love that show I mean L-U-V love. The only way I can see it is DVD. Netflix doesn't stream it, but if you have a DVD plan, you can get it. I binge it like every two years or so.

    Amazon says the complete series will be release on July 21 2020.

    My favorite series of ever. I didn't have a TV, so I bought each season on DVD as they became available.

    Now I live it. Our tiny town is very similar in so many ways.

    I really got into INYA when it came out.

    It isn't clear whether they've restored the original soundtrack or not. I'll check back in a couple of months.

    By FAR my fav show that was ever on TV.

    The writing was other-worldly and, imo, genius.

    It's what made the show so great!

    They would tackle ANYTHING, weaving reality and fantasy.

    And the music was expertly and lovingly used to embellish the scenes.

    The characters were quirky but intelligent.

    Much of it was filmed outdoors in and around Rosyln, WA. (I plan on visiting Roslyn next year)

    Some of the indoor scenes were shot at the BRICK BAR. It's still there.

    Others were shot in a warehouse/soundstage in Seattle (i believe).

    I loved it so much that 15 years ago I bought the entire series (all 6 seasons) on dvds.

    I watch them all regularly...

    It's like going home.

    (btw, the dvds I bought advertised the original soundtrack/music... I believe it to be true)

    The full box set turned up at my work one day after drunk me purchased it.

    Drunk me makes good choices sometimes.

    Great show.

    They've been threatening to do a sequel for years.

    I read somewhere on-line, as recently as last year, that one was planned.

    Much of the original cast is still alive, albeit, some are quite old.

    Darren Burrows (Ed), keeps pushing for it.

    But, I doubt whether they could get Rob Morrow (Dr. Fleishman) or Janine Turner (Maggie) to do it. At least on a regular basis.

    John Corbett (Chris) might be up for it, if he can find time away from his gal Bo Derek.

    Peg Phillips (Ruth Anne) is deceased.

    John Cullum (Holling) is 90 but a trouper actor and might show up... if he can.

    Barry Corbin (Maurice) is 79 and also a trouper actor and might be game, if he can.

    Cynthia Geary (Shelly) might be into an episode or two.

    But, I think the most important peeps to have involved are some of the original writers and the producers, Joshua Brand and John Falsey.

    ................................................................................................................................

    It would be cool to do a few episodes that let fans know what happened to the folks in Cicely, Alaska since the 90's.

    The PBS series "Doc Martin" reminds me a lot of an English version of NE.

    The theme of an arrogant Dr., stuck in a place that's out of his element and trying to deal with the quirky local characters, is similar.

    If you add that it's shot on location in a small, beautiful old English seaside village, and you get very close.

    This is not the actual footage from the episode, but a commercial Christmas dub. Blasphemy!

    You know?.....it's been so long since I watched Northern Exposure, I never connected the dots with Doc Martin. ;) Doc Martin stands on its own as a clever, quirky show. I like it a lot!

    Probably my all-time favorite show.

    One day it struck me that no one was married on it and there were no kids. As a married father of two, I've often wondered what that says about me. o_O :D

    Excellent find. I was wondering why it was not as how I remembered it.

    I’m a huge fan.

    I thought the cliff jump was odd and triumphant. He supposedly had heart trouble and did this to reclaim his youthful spirit.

    Holling and Shelley married and had a child. Joel and Maggie eventually got married, but that was destined for failure from the start. Maurice would have married Barbara if he hadn't bent the law. I believe Adam and Eve were married and had a child. Joel's replacement, Dr. Capra, was married to Michelle. Poor Ed Chigliak, playing the classic hero role who fell in love with any woman who gave him a second look, couldn't really have a lasting relationship. Chris was too busy getting tail from any goddess within a 500 mile radius who no one else ever saw except in their dreams (except Maggie, a visiting optometrist (who is immune to his pheromones), and one who took his voice away). No one was "normal" in that series, and relationships weren't either.

    Joel went back to NYC, or at least was seen on the Staten Island Ferry with the city in the background.

    It was Chris that ended up with Maggie in the last episode.

    Maurice did end up with Barbara. (anyway, the last episode ended with them being together)

    Ed, in the last episode, went home to watch his movies.

    Holling and Shelly were raising their kid at the Brick.
