Basically since I’ve moved to hot, steamy New Wye, I’ve been taking a perverse pleasure in watching films and TV shows set in cold, northern climates. See as cases in point: 30 Days of Night, Twilight, Into the Wild, the “Mountains” episode of Planet Earth, and so on.
It only recently occurred to me, however, that there is a whole entire television series set in snowy Alaska, and it incorporates my love of shows set in quirky small towns (à la Stars Hollow) and my love of mountains, trees, and snow. Northern Exposure! And I never even watched it while it aired, so the whole thing is new to me.
I am currently on episode four, and while it’s certainly enjoyable, I am still waiting for Rob Morrow’s character, the fish-out-of-water New York doctor, to get slightly less annoying. Please say he will!
Are there any fans of this show out there? Keeping in mind I don’t want to hear any spoilers, what was your favorite season?
