Product Description

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 (TV's Sex and the City, My Big Fat Greek Wedding) and the beautiful Janine Turner (Cliffhanger), Season Two takes us back to the slightly bizarre, yet charming, little logging town in Alaska. Relive the Complete Second Season of the show TV Guide calls "…one of television's truly fine series."


The colorful cast of characters from Cicely, Alaska, returns for a new set of adventures in Northern Exposure: The Complete Second Season. While much of the first season was devoted to establishing the plot, each of the seven episodes in season 2 helps us to know the offbeat ensemble of Cicely residents a little better. Dr. Joel Fleischman (Rob Morrow), the New York urbanite stationed in small-town Alaska to pay off his medical-school tuition, still complains constantly about his assignment, but it's clear the town's growing on him when he passes up an opportunity to return home (if only temporarily). We learn from town patriarch Maurice (Barry Corbin) that retired astronauts have groupies, and when a beautiful woman steals the voice of DJ "Chris in the Morning" (John Corbett), it's no huge surprise when the long-deceased spirit of "One Who Waits" provides Chris with an ancient Indian cure.

But it's the chemistry between Joel and Maggie (Janine Turner) that really makes the series sizzle. The season is book-ended by a pair of breakups that leave first Joel, and then Maggie single, clearing the way for the romance to come in later seasons. The season includes "Spring Break," one of the best-loved episodes from the series. With the impending arrival of spring, libidos run amok, a wave of petty crime hits the town, and the men in town blow off steam au naturale in the annual "Running of the Bulls."

Season 2's packaging and extras are virtually identical to those from season 1. The two-disc set comes sheathed in a collectible mini zippered nylon "parka," and each episode includes deleted scenes and bloopers. There are no retrospectives or interviews with cast and crew, and no printed materials accompany the discs. --Shane Burnett

    I am not buying this. I can't believe that some of the music in the Second Season DVD has been replaced with elevator muzak. What a disaster!!! I want to cry. I don't care about licensing and copyrights and resons why. This is America, and I am a consumer.

    I would pay 250 for the DVD, if it only had all the music, so don't tell me you edited out the music to make it cheaper. Northern Exposure was special because of the music that weaved through the show. It was based around a radio station for God sakes. And if Willie Nelson is not playing when Holling and Maurice are hauling the casket through the woods then forget it.

    I can't believe that Universal thinks they can get away with this. We Northern Exposure fans know the songs. By Universal calling it Northern Exposure, we expect a product, the one we have seen and know as Northern Exposure. It can't be changed, modified or reduced. That would be like replacing Marilyn Whirlwind with a 6 foot animated fish by Pixar. This product is a lie, and they should all be recalled.

    I thank Amazon for providing this, so that consumers will not be angry when they open their new DVD to find such a dissapointment.

    This really makes me angry and sad because i waited so long....

    Now, I don't really care about packaging or inserts, or even cost, when it comes to this show. I just want the show. I didn't mind paying the $40-60 asking price for Season One, since I was aware that much of that money was going toward securing the wonderful music that helped make this show the gem that it was.

    Therefore, I also didn't mind paying it again for Season Two. This 7-episode season contains some of the best television I've ever seen. You can clearly see, in the last three or four episodes, that this show was really beginning to hit its stride. "Spring Break" and "War and Peace" were harbingers of the wonderful things to come in ensuing seasons - both episodes contained great situations, dramatic and comedic, as well as music that, in my opinion, made up the best TV soundtrack ever done.

    Again, we were told that we were paying the relatively high cost in order to help ensure that the great soundtracks for each episode were kept intact for the DVDs. Made sense to me, and I was happy to pay a little extra.

    So imagine my horror when I turned on "Spring Break" and was greeted with elevator music instead of the original songs, those songs that helped tie the show together, those songs that I remember so well as being such an important part of the series. And it got worse before it got better. It seemed as if each episode was missing integral music, music that was seemingly replaced by the soundtrack from the Sears Tower elevator. I was in shock.

    Now I'm not going to pretend to know about copyrighting and licensing. Maybe they weren't able to get this music. Maybe various artists wouldn't allow their music to be included on the DVDs. Who knows. But I do know one thing ...

    I'm a huge fan of Norther Exposure.

    I think it's one of the BEST TV series EVER produced... which is why it's very hard for me to say that NO ONE should waste there hard-earned moolah on this DVD set!

    This morning I started to check the Northern Exposure Syndicated episodes I taped off the TV, against the new second season DVD box set... Very disappointing. So much so that I got 10 minutes and three songs into the first episode and had to stop.

    As an example: The first song - during the teaser on my Syndicated version - is a beautiful trumpet-arranged version of Stardust over a monologue by Chris (Harry James maybe?). It's the first thing you hear and it sets a very important mood for the episode... and it's no longer there for anyone to appreciate. The song on the DVD Box Set is something completely forgettable.

    More so than anything else I can think of, the music on Northern Exposure is integral to the series. When it's used well - which is almost always - it is a profound voice in the series, and almost always a "character" of it's own. Most of the time the music tells a significant part of the story besides setting a mood for the scene. There are a lot of levels to Northern Exposure. Things like Shelly's earrings and their metaphoric relationship to the storyline contribute to the feel of each episode. Worse, without the original music, we aren't seeing the shows we remember.

    My own experience with licensors is that they're a very short-sighted, ignorant and greedy bunch of bad businessmen. They don't seem to take into account how many more copies of, say, Etta James' version of "At Last," they'd sell every time the show is rerun or watched on home video.

    There's never enough information on these TV season DVD's. Here's what you can look forward to with Northern Exposure Season 2:

    * Episode 1: Goodbye to All That

    Joel receives a "Dear John" letter from Elaine, who has decided to marry an older judge, and a concerned Ed enlists Maggie to help him deal with it. Holling regrets buying a satellite dish for Shelly, who soon develops into an international television junkie.

    * Episode 2: The Big Kiss

    Ed's wish to know who his parents were summons up a 256-year-old Indian spirit named "One-Who-Waits" who offers to help him find out. Chris finds his voice has been stolen by a beautiful woman passing through town, and comes to believe in a folk cure he hears: that he must sleep with the most beautiful woman in town, Maggie.

    * Episode 3: All Is Vanity

    Holling decides to be circumcised to please Shelly, Chris and Maurice organize the town to keep watch over an anonymous man who died in Dr. Fleischman's office, and Maggie persuades Joel to pose as her boyfriend to please her father.

    * Episode 4: What I Did For Love

    Joel's plans for a vacation to New York are side-tracked by Maggie's dreams about his death in an airplane crash and his suspicions about the enthusiastic doctor sent to temporarily replace him. Maurice's annual visit from an astronaut groupie is interrupted by his sleeping problems.

    * Episode 5: Spring Break

    Things get out of hand as the town waits for the annual ice breakup and the annual "running of the bulls" down the streets of Cicely.
