Northern Exposure (Season 3) DVD Review
Nominated for a numerous of Emmys and other critical awards, Northern Exposure is part-drama, part-comedy, a show successfully built on the tried and true premise of a "fish out of water". During its short five-season run, the show's rapier like wit and originality earned it a place among some of the best television shows of its era… Northern Exposure follows the life of recent medical school graduate Joel Fleishman (Rob Morrow) who is informed that he must work in a small town in Alaska in order to fulfill the requirements of his medical school loan. Making matters worse, he's the only doctor in the small town which is filled with eccentric characters from every walk of life. The wealthy entrepreneur Maurice Minnifield owns the town (named Cicely), and he's determined to transform it into an ideal vacation paradise. Other memorable characters include pilot Maggie O'Connell (Janine Turner), radio deejay Chris Stevens (John Corbett), filmmaker Ed Chigliak (Darren E. Burrows), and husband/wife restaurant owners Holling (John Cullum) and Shelly Vincoeur (Cynthia Geary).
The Northern Exposure (Season 3) DVD features a number of hilarious episodes including the season premiere "The Bumpy Road to Love" in which Maggie learns of Rick's extensive past of lovers when a statue is commemorated in his honor. Meanwhile, a disagreement hinders Maurice's pursuit of Officer Semanski and Joel is kidnapped by a reclusive mountain man and his hypochondriac wife… Other notable episodes from Season 3 include "Jules et Joel" in which Joel gets injured, prompting a visit from his twin brother Jules, and "Things Become Extinct" in which Joel experiences feelings of isolation as he searches for other Jews living in Alaska… Below is a list of episodes included on the Northern Exposure (Season 3) DVD: Episode 16 (The Bumpy Road to Love) Air Date: 09-23-1991 Episode 17 (Only You) Air Date: 09-30-1991 Episode 18 (Oy Wilderness) Air Date: 10-07-1991 Episode 19 (Animals 'R' Us) Air Date: 10-14-1991 Episode 20 (Jules et Joel) Air Date: 10-28-1991 Episode 21 (The Body in Question) Air Date: 11-04-1991 Episode 22 (Roots) Air Date: 11-11-1991 Episode 23 (A-Hunting We Will Go) Air Date: 11-18-1991 Episode 24 (Get Real) Air Date: 12-09-1991 Episode 25 (Seoul Mates) Air Date: 12-16-1991 Episode 26 (Dateline: Cicely) Air Date: 01-06-1992 Episode 27 (Our Tribe) Air Date: 01-13-1992 Episode 28 (Things Become Extinct) Air Date: 01-20-1992 Episode 29 (Burning Down the House) Air Date: 02-03-1992 Episode 30 (Democracy in America) Air Date: 02-24-1992 Episode 31 (Three Amigos) Air Date: 03-02-1992 Episode 32 (Lost and Found) Air Date: 03-09-1992 Episode 33 (My Mother, My Sister) Air Date: 03-16-1992 Episode 34 (Wake Up Call) Air Date: 03-23-1992 Episode 35 (The Final Frontier) Air Date: 04-27-1992 Episode 36 (It Happened in Juneau) Air Date: 05-04-1992 Episode 37 (Our Wedding) Air Date: 05-11-1992 Episode 38 (Cicely) Air Date: 05-18-1992.
