Marin Frist has it all: a successful career as a lecturer and author about relationships, and an upcoming marriage to her dream man. Booked for a lecture (inexplicably) in the small town of Elmo, Alaska, Marin discovers her fiancé Graham is having an affair. This knowledge throws her into a quandary when she arrives in the remote Alaskan town populated mostly by men (some of whom trim trees and put out a warning sign to alert people below).

I like it
28 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I find the phrase "Chick Flick" extremely offensive and insulting but the caveman who posted it obviously hasn't given this show a chance. Shows entertain us is all. I can watch a show and I don't "count" the number of whites, blacks, native Americans, Latins,Asians, etc, it dosen't matter to me. People who do that are just instigating trouble. I don't like the fact that Sarah is a prostitute, that is unnecessary, but the only similarity to Northern Exposure which was a great show is that it also is in Alaska. Its a good show with a mix of comedy and drama. Each character adds his/her flavor and passion to the show and is unique and not a clone of other shows. I hope it stays around a long time. To those who hate it? CHANGE THE CHANNEL!
