Trivia

According to Ned, he left after Cicely's death in 1909 and returned for what would have been her 100th birthday. Considering the episode takes place in 1992, then Cicely was born in 1892 which would have made her about 16 years old when she arrived in Alaska and about 17 when she died. See more »

Perfect in Every Way
8 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There is such a wonderful quality to this episode, while history it is also a highly intelligent discussion of art and the soul. Almost a miniature Back to the Future III, without the train chase, here we have a real fantasy that is just magic. Watched it the other night and it still retains a glow to it. It was also expensive for the producers had to construct a 1908 version of the town and re-create the Alaska version of the Old West, not easy to do. That all the main characters of the contemporary town show up in the past adds a timeless quality, perhaps the closest we have to a TWILIGHT ZONE equivalent of WALKING DISTANCE.

Wonderful way to spend an hour with good friends, both today and in 1908.
