    True, the parka pack is gone, and I do miss it. However the change to slimcases warrants a more manageable packaging. And I am in favor of the slimcases because of the improvement of episode listings and synopses on the sleeves. That is definitely nice. Now, more pressing matters:

    MUSIC: I went through after purchase to satisfy my curiosity (I didn't have anything else to do at the moment) and held my breath. ALL THE PLOT-INTRINSIC SONGS ARE INTACT, except for the original Chieftans "Coolin Medley" from "Wake up Call". In terms of incidental music from The Brick and KBHR, "Jolie Louise" by Daniel Lanois is missing from "The Body In Question", and there are a few more that may be changed, but the majority is still there. All of David Schwartz's brilliant music is still intact, the wonderful symphonic stuff and Willie Nelson's "Hand's on the Wheel" are staples of "Three Amigos" (perhaps my favorite episode)-still there. Billie Holiday's "Let's Dream in the Moonlight" from "Only You", Bela Fleck and the Flecktones' "Flight of the Cosmic Hippo" from "Jules et Joel", The Chieftans' do have "Il Est Ne" intact in "Seoul Mates", Bach's "Invention #8" and Fredrica von Staade's beautiful "Bailero" from "Wake up Call", Strauss' "Blue Danube" from "Burning Down The House", "Democracy In America" 's Copland "Simple Gifts" and the stuff from the American Boys Choir, Enya's "Caribbean Blue" from "The Final Frontier", and the one I held my breath on, the quintessential quirky song, without which the sequence could not work, "Toy Cows in Africa" by Chance for "It Happened In Juneau"!

    So, yes there are a couple of songs missing, and I miss them-great songs. But EVERY OTHER ONE I CHECKED is intact, the video and audio quality: excellent.

    For those wondering the third season contains the following episodes:

    The Bumpy Road To Love

    Maggie discovers the late Rick was unfaithful and proceeds to distrust all men; Maurice's tax indiscretion could destroy his relationship with Officer Semanski; while Joel is toted off to the woods to play marriage counselor to wildman-chef extraordinaire Adam and his hypochrondiacal wife, Eve.

    Only You

    Chris emits a scent which attracts all women to him. Maurice once again accuses Holling of stealing Shelly from him, leaving only Shelly to set the record straight.

    Oy, Wilderness

    Joel and Maggie become stranded in the wilderness. Shelly's best friend Cyndy comes to Cicely asking Shelly to divorce Wayne.

    Animals R Us

    Maggie is confronted with the possibility that Rick has been reincarnated as a dog; Maurice sees big profits learns that Marilyn owns an ostrich herd; and Ed seriously considers getting out of show business.

    3.5 Jules et Joel

    Joel's twin brother, Jules, a charming but conniving rogue, creates a stir when he arrives in quiet Cicely to visit his sibling.

    The Body In Question

    A frozen body discovered in the local river could cause a world-wide historical revolution: was Napoleon Bonaparte at Waterloo or was he ice fishing near Cicely and fathering a tribe of French-speaking Native Americans?


    Joel grapples with the possibility of a new start when his ex-fiancee Elaine visits Cicely; Bernard brings Chris his inheritance from their father, giving Chris the opportunity to go to Africa, as his dreams have told him to; and Adam becomes the chef at the Brick.

    It is so unfair of Universal to put fans of NE in this position. I was gutted when watching the second season of this series on DVD only to realise that it was full of pappy generic music where REAL music should have been. It didn't destroy the episodes in question, it just took some of the soul away from them. While it is great that this stunning series is finally being released on DVD, I can't help but feel that, without all the fabulous music, it is somewhat the poorer. So many memorable and moving scenes are made all the more so by the perfectly-chosen music that accompanies them, so it is sad to think that we are being made to choose between a compromised DVD version of NE on one hand, or no NE at all apart from the old videotapes and reruns on the other. So my plea goes out to whoever is responsible for these things - I will pay whatever it costs, an unreasonable amount if necessary, to have these episodes with all the original music, and I am sure that many other fans of Northern Exposure feel the same.

    What would "Jaws" be without the score? Would you tell the story of the "Nutcracker Suite" without music? You could do either, but you would lose the magic. The soundtrack from NE was one of the most deliberately chosen, eclectic gatherings of music that has ever been proffered on television. Separating the music from the story is artistic rape. It is a perversion of original intent. It is tearing the sails of the schooner America. It is slashing Mario Andretti's tires. It is spoiliation of achievement.

    Universal has taken a 5 star show and given it a 1 star DVD treatment. The show is still there. And it's not a totally empty shell. But nobody buying these DVDs who has seen the show as intended should be deceived: You WILL notice the difference. There is no cherry on top. There is no final perfection.

    For those of us who have come to relish this show for that total refinement of vision, this DVD release is a let down. There is a crucial element missing, and there are no excuses relevant or acceptable.

    Canned music?
    When I first saw the episode "Wake Up Call," I had just gotten my late father's violin after he passed away. I had been trying to teach myself to play it by practicing the Chieftains' "Coolin Medley." Then when Maurice was up on the roof playing his grandfather's bagpipes,... Read More

    Season 3 - $8.99 - Target 12/19/10
    I just bought the two pack of season 3 and season 4 at my Target last night for $15.00. I hadn't opened my $8.99 season 3 yet so I'm taking that one back. :-)
