I liked Northern Exposure a lot. IIRC, it wasn't even supposed to be a regular series, but rather a summer special that CBS aired in July of 1990. Got such great ratings against NBC's repeats of Cheers and Night Court that the network green-lighted NE as a regular series for the fall, where it was moved to Mondays and aired for 6 seasons. Seems like CBS launched quite a few of their popular shows in the early 90s like that, (Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman, Walker Texas Ranger etc). I vividly recall seeing the movie that became the pilot for Dr. Quinn.

Great show. The writing and atmosphere were perfect. Too bad the lead left and the show tanked. It was so quirky and well acted except for the aforementioned.

Northern Exposure was a poor man's Twin Peaks, which it copied. There was successful revival of Twin Peaks this past year made by the original creator/director; so, maybe there is a Baby Boomer viewership.

Hard to say.


One thing about NE was its remoteness, it wasn't quite as primitive as it could be, but it was close.


But are there places now like that, given the great expanse of the internet and wireless (well, other than my ranch)?



And if there are, who would enjoy such a show other than us Oldie Von Moldies who remember how it once was?
