Expose Yourself

Earlier this week, we talked about how Northern Exposure is airing on KBDI-Channel 12 Monday through Thursday nights at 7PM. But what's the big deal? Why does this nearly twenty-year-old television series merit not one but two blogs?

Ah, my friend, I'd give it ten, if I could. (One on Janine Turner alone.)

And this show is worth it. This is not hyperbole. I don't need no stinkin' hyperbole. Northern Exposure sells itself. Which is good, since I've only got 300 words here. So instead of summarizing a five-year show — let's just stipulate that it's worth watching, want to? — I'm going to talk about the things about this show that make it special.
