Do yourself a favor and skip buying this set. I was able to obtain/bootleg all of the episodes on DVD, which I felt I had no choice in doing (I'd rather buy a factory set), recorded from Canadian TV (which, by the way, even has more footage in some of the episodes than the syndicated U.S. broadcasts). This way it's intact, the way it was intended, with the original soundtrack---not the pusillanimous generic elevator music that the studio hastily replaced it with in the DVDs. It's just not the same show without the original soundtrack.
A faux-suede satchel or fake parka case doesn't come close to making up for compromising the artistic integrity of Northern Exposure. Sorry Universal, but you aren't getting one red cent from me until you get this right.
Purchasing the full series would be a no-brainer if it were fully intact, but many fans I've spoken to are choosing to not buy, or in some cases, purchasing bootlegged DVDs of the show as aired because they are truer to the show than the official DVDs.
- all content from the previously released seasons are here
- picture quality is excellent
- despite their only being 5 boxes you will get all six seasons ( seasons one and two are in one DVD set)
- the biggest and most obvious pro is that you get to watch all 110 episodes
- no known issues related to double sided discs
- all extras from original season are included such as deleted/extended scenes. There are even some extras highlighting lot lines that were dropped from the show. Also expect the occasional gag reel.
- ****the biggest and most noticeable con is that with this set you will NOT get the original music from the series. The music has been switched out for royalty free music. This is not the end if the works but you will real a lot of negative reviews due to this. It kinda feels like the soul has been sucked out if the show. If you watch a lot if old shows you will be used to this. See the Wonder years on Netflix for similar disappointment.
- the fluffy parkas are included. This was only part of the original separate season 1 and season 2 separated sets.
- the messenger bag packaging is not included
- small con episodes are on double sided discs. I have not head of any issues with this particular set but double sides discs in the DVD community can sometimes lead to issues from cheap production.
This is a fantastic collection and is far cheaper than buying the individual seasons. If you know you love this show then you will love this bundle.Read more ›

I have the same question. I wish it would happen, but I kind-of doubt it -- these are probably the same discs as before, just repackaged into this set. I think if they actually "solved" this, there would be more information about it.
For me, I'm waiting, and wouldn't buy with the... Read More
