Rating: Not Rated
“This 7-time Emmy award-winning series is a remarkable blend of quirky humor and heartwarming storytelling. With an ensemble cast including Rob Morrow (Quiz Show), John Corbett (Sex and the City), and Janine Turner (Cliffhanger), Season 1 of Northern Exposure takes you back to where it all began. Fresh out of New York’s Columbia University, cocky young Dr. Joel Fleischman (Morrow) is looking forward to his comfortable position in Alaska’s largest city. Upon his arrival, Joel finds himself a fish-out-of-water as he’s instead assigned to a tiny Alaskan village where the offbeat locals would love him to stay forever. Relive the complete first season of the show TV Guide calls ”one of television’s truly fine series.'”
Northern Exposure The Complete Third Season is not rated.
That being said, I recognize that there are legions of Northern Exposure fans out there and they’ll be glad to pick up this DVD set. (They may not be so happy that some of the original music used in the show has been changed.) I wouldn’t recommend picking up this third season unless you already own the previous two seasons. If you’re going to own Northern Exposure, you might as well start at the beginning. And if you’re one of those people who have never seen Northern Exposure, then I recommend it if you’re into quirky comedies and shows with long, drawn out romantic relationships. That being said, I recommend it in small doses.
Deleted and/or Extended Scenes There are a number of deleted scenes from various episodes. I won’t go into them all here, but there will be plenty to keep fans happy.
Unexposed Scenes This is kind of a series of blooper reels from the shows. Considering how much footage they shot making the series, there are a ton of bloopers. There’s a lot of flubbed lines, practical jokes on the set, and more. This is the highlight of the bonus features. Also included is some footage of Ed’s independent films.
Lost Storylines In each episode, there are several storylines all woven together. Sometimes those storylines are dropped for the sake of time, but they are included here. Again, it’s sure to please Northern Exposure fans.
The Bottom Line:
