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).

User Reviews

Loved it! Only one (hopefuly constructive criticism) - please read on.
24 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I (my wife and I) loved the first episodes of Men in Trees. We have enjoyed Anne Heche since seeing her in Six Nights Seven Days (or Seven Days Six Nights) Whatever. Only one critical remark. The background music and sound is too loud. I defy anyone to make out most of what the characters are saying. The music especially - to have music with LYRICS pounding away while people are talking is almost enough to make us tune out or turn the sound off as I used to do when watching Charlie's Angels - who cared what they were saying - I just wanted to watch. I really don't want to do this with Men in Trees. Anne Heche is a remarkable comedic actress - a real master (mistress?) of physical comedy. We want to hear every word. Good luck - please hang in there, we want this show to be around for a long time. You'll see from my birth date that I am incredibly old (80 glorious years!) - this show can keep me young. I need you!
