An offbeat comedy drama series, which gained a loyal cult following and enthusiastic press during its five-season run, Northern Exposure concerned Dr. Joel Fleishman (Rob Morrow), a recent medical school graduate who attended Columbia University on a scholarship that stipulated that after graduation, he had to spend four years working as a general practitioner in the small town of Cicely, AK, where he is to be paid the princely sum of 465 dollars a month. As Fleishman bides his time in Cicely, he gets to know many of the local residents, including Maurice Minnifield (Barry Corbin), a multi-millionaire former astronaut who is the city's largest property owner; Maggie O'Connell (Janine Turner), a bush pilot (and the town's mayor) who has an on-again, off-again romance with Fleishman; Chris Stevens (John Corbett), the philosophical DJ at the local radio station; Holling Vincoeur (John Cullum), the owner of a local watering hole who has married Shelly Marie (Cynthia Geary), a young woman who was once in love with Maurice; Ed Chigliak (Darren E. Burrows), a genius-IQ teenager who wants to become a filmmaker; and Marilyn Whirlwind (Elaine Miles), a soft-spoken Native American who serves as Fleishman's receptionist.
A classic anthology of sci-fi, suspense and goose-bump-inducing tales that explore 'a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man.' Filled with invention and irony, the stories are tightly constructed, ingenious flights of imagination with often cautionary themes---and frequently a terrific twist at the end.
A cult fantasy about a lawyer who befriends---and eventually falls for---a kindly man-beast who lives in a subterranean world beneath New York City. Strange, moody and oddly romantic, the series had unusually loyal fans, but, alas, not enough of them and was gone within three years.
