I highly recommend this sixth season of Northern Exposure. Since it is the final season, all loose ends get tied up. A lot of surprises here.

HASH(0x9ebe2198) out of 5 stars The best show in the history of television Jan. 15 2007
By Roland - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Northern Exposure is the best show ever made in all of television history.

This is the final season, and though Joel leaves the show to many peoples dislike, the rest of the characters keep the show interesting up till the finale episode. The way Joel's experiences in Alaska end up changing him are very significant as we see in the final season, and this has always been in my opinion one of the most existentially sincere and compelling character changes ever developed in any television show. This is the result of writing that is comparable to high literature if you compare the character of Joel from the first episode to the final one he appears in, and the entire series of NX becomes a protrayal of a man who goes through the most poignant and profound experiences of self realization.

HASH(0x9ebe23c0) out of 5 stars Music Change a Detriment to the Series March 9 2007
By Parlabane - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I love this show. I do.

But the entire feeling that I remember so fondly from the end of the episode entitled "The Quest" is altered by the change in music from the original. Years ago when it first aired, "Forever Nightshade Mary", by the Los Lobos side project band Latin Playboys, played over Rob Morrow's final scene on the show. I distinctly remember the calming, almost zen impression it made, twelve years after it first aired.

Now, it's gone, replaced with something that sounds like Rosemary Clooney or Ethel Merman, something that has far more bombast, and was no doubt cheaper to license for the DVD set. Do I love the fact that I can get the show on DVD? Yes. But it would be disingenuous to say that I don't cringe everytime I hear a piece of music that I know didn't play when the showed aired originally, as music played such an integral part of the mood and feel of the show. This is a case in point illustration of the effect of choice of music in television.

I had hoped against hope that it would not be the case with the sixth season (they had at least managed to get away from double sided DVDs), but alas...

HASH(0x9ebe2534) out of 5 stars Worst season of one of the best shows still has its moments. March 6 2007
By Paul J. Mular - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
When Rob Morrow announced, at the end of the 5th season, that he would not be renewing his contract to do the show, it sent the producers on a hunt for a replacement. Since the show had started as a Summer Replacement show, Rob still had six months left in his five year contract to fulfill. This meant that he had to appear in some of the sixth season episodes, and Rob seems to be just walking through these episodes waiting for his contract to expire.

While Dr. Joel Fleischer was the basis character for the series, the town itself quickly became the star. So the death of the series at Rob's announcement was not a given situation, replacements worked fine for M*A*S*H which had the similar ensamble style (but it was not Hawkeye they were losing). The producers introduced a new town doctor, but this time he was not neurotic and would not be persuing Maggie (he was happily married). That was the trouble. In a town full of neurotic characters, replacing neurotic #1 with a bland character having less personality that the town's totum pole just reminded fans that the series was ending after all.

One would think that with six months notice a better replacement could have been found.

Fans could also have troubles with the character transformation of DR. Joel Fleischman. He starts off this season like other seasons, but he quickly becomes a different character than the one we grew to enjoy. Watching the last 10 episodes of this season could be like watching a slow death, almost like watching "After M*A*S*H". The surreal series finale is perfect for this surreal series, and should have happened a few episodes earlier than it did. The nice part about watching this on DVD is that you can skip over those Morrow-less episodes.

I think that the town of Cicily Alaska could have survived the loss of DR. Joel Fleischman had the right replacement character been found. The first 5 episodes are classic Cicily. When Shelly meets the Devil the outcome is in the true spirit of the series.

Others have listed the episodes, so I will not repeat this information.

HASH(0x9ebe2780) out of 5 stars The best show to ever air on television. Feb. 18 2007
By Skyclad - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
What can you say about this show that people that have already seen it haven't said already? Each and every episode of Northern Exposure has a plot and enough great writing and acting to be full length movies in their own right. Whoever was the casting directeor did an outstanding job with getting this cast together in the beginning because they all seem to fit their parts so well. Also, how many shows that are an hour long each week can last 6 seasons without the quality of the episodes going down at all. Sure, many people didn't like the fact that Joel left in this, the 6th and last season, but all of the Joel-less episodes were still great. And if you want to get technical, Joel did play in almost half of this season's episodes anyway. Each and every episode of this show was like I went on an adventure with the people of Cicely, Alaska, and I never wanted to come back. So many wonderful memries like Ed buying Ruth-Anne and burial plot and dancing on it with her, Chirs' legal trouble with the state of West Virginia, Holling's mid-life crisis at 63 years old, Joel discovering a wolly mammoth that Walt ends up cooking on his grill, and I could go on and on. Season 6 has its share of touching moments as well, most noteable is the very last episode called Tranquility Base. Did anyone feel bad for Ed when at the end of this episode everyone had someone to be with, but Ed went back home alone. But he had his movies and seemed as happy as anyone else.

Speaking of this "Tranquility Base", I would like to plead to whoever is releasing this set of DVD's to PLEASE leave the song "Our Town" in this last episode. I know the music has been reowrked a lot in these DVD's, but this song is crutial to this last epsidoe and it should be left in!

I was saddened to hear Peg Phillips (Ruth Ann) died a few years back. I wish she could have gotten to see these DVD's that she's so much a part of.
