As a mega Northern Exposure fan I thought I knew all there was to know about the show and it's quirky characters. This book filled in the blanks.It was a fun and nostalgic trip back to the days of the television series that made millions of us wilderness wannabees!The personal interviews made me feel as if I know the stars personally. The book took me behind the scenes and gave me a wonderful insight of what it really takes to produce a T.V. series,and make it work.

Northern Exposure is one of my favorite show. That's why my curiosity as a fan is enormous. The book is not bad, but it's the official one!!! There are a few trivia, the five seasons' episode guide (and the sixth?) consists of summaries (no notes, no nitpicks). The first part is a commentary during the shots of one episode, but the author tell us things that I don't think are very interesting. For instance: Janine Turner spots a blue jay! So?
On the contrary, I invite you to read the interview to the creators Joshua Brand e John Falsey: enlightening.
Anyway, a MUST, for a real fan...

This TV series is still as great as it was to watch during the decade it was produced. This is a large part of the reason I found a small town to live in; filled with eccentric characters, and lovable and supportive friends. This is a must see series no matter your age.

This book is a nice supplement to the series for the hardcore fans. You'll learn more about the behind the scenes, and about all the actors. I'm a huge fan of the show and I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

This Chunovic's book is a reminder. So.....
After watching the series a few times, all I can say is I agree
with Ecclesiastes ( remember the Kohelet/Ecclesiastes, a Bible
guy, the purported King Solomon ? )-"Is not the eye surfeited with
seeing, and the ear sated with hearing ?"
For me- it is. Maybe the best one could do is to be grateful for the gift and pay homage.
So, thanx:
- for characters that are not "larger than life", but stand for
life's largeness
- for the message that ordinary life already *is* a mythic one
- for making friends with mortality, whilst eschewing both
morbidity and shallow New-Ageish dull mantras/stereotypes
- for presenting, yet not succumbing to tedium vitae
- for the most sophisticated TV show kids & analphabets
could enjoy
- for being life-affirming & not taking an easy route to existential
despair, quick fixes and loopholes ( at least, for the most part )
- for, while being a celebration of life, not lying on human condition
- for giving a cast of average actors ( a couple of old grizzlies excluded ) the chance to say these were the best years of their lives;and the entire crew, from producers to actors and stunt men that they,being good women & men as they are, took part in something that was way beyond "good"; something that was great ( grand but not pompous )
- for rekindling innumerable sparks in innumerable viewers into, at least, fleeting flickers
- for helping people grow in wisdom & compassion
- for being .......hmm, what's the most encompassing word ?..
............life's grandeur embodied
