I watched it after its own hiatus, and it disappointed me a great deal. It just
seems like 30something gone north.  Even the name is a Real Estate term.
(I say that w/o ever having watched 30something. I make reference to the
constant reports of whininess and self-conscious trendiness. I do not believe
there can be a more whiny character than the "hero" of "Northern Exposure" on
TV.) It has an "odd" way of telling it's story, more collage-like than
commercial TV goes about things, but that is scant help when you don't
much care for the story.
