Joel Fleishman is fresh out of medical college, and fresh out of luck. Failing to read the fine print in his scholarship conditions, he finds he has no choice but to move to the remote and somewhat eccentric town of Cicely, in the wilds of Alaska.

Despite Joel's adamant denials, one gets the impression that he enjoys life in Cicely more than he admits. Written by

This series is by far the best series ever. It ignores bland stereotypes and sleezy "one-liners", it's true, it's real. Real emotion, real plot.

But the show goes more into depth than just "a trapped doctor". We laugh and cry for Northern Exposure.
