While Joel gives Ed golf lessons, the Indian warns him Adam is around, the never actually seen monster-prankster, blamed for all kinds of weirdness since 15 years. Passing the night in his car in the...
Dr. Joel Fleischman (Rob Morrow) 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, Alaska. Once there, he is welcomed by the peculiar locals who are not keen to see him go, most especially Maurice J. Minnifield (Barry Corbin), the ex-N.A.S.A. astronaut. Despite Joel's adamant denials, one gets the impression that he enjoys life in Cicely more than he admits.Written by

An experience not to be missed. There are not even re-runs now. I would certainly buy any cds available as soon as I can find any! And the music! Wow. Awesome. Rob, why did you feel you had to go? That show was such a wonderful inspiration, and a near cure-all for the reality over-dosed. Heh.
Warmest regards to you all in Alaska. And here is a big ripe tomato to celebrate Columbus day right.
