Storyline

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). Written by Ron Kerrigan <mvg@whidbey.com>

Marin moves out of her standard New York City life to face the Great North
29 September 2006 | by amycohenbankerSee all my reviews

This does remind me of my time in Alaska as a New York City woman facing a surprising environment and interesting people and flora and fauna. I did find it believable except for the fact that no one consummates in this pilot. It would have been warmer if they actually had sex but I guess it would not have passed the "censor". And now we get to wonder what will happen next. The acting is sweet and energetic and it has both a funny and pathetic twist. I was left wanting to return to Alaska and to return to the next episode of this cute family show. I loved the little touches, especially her slapstick antics, her high heels, and the confusion of a new environment way over her head. And now there are plenty of lessons to be learned..By the way, I emailed my Alaskan friend and told him to check it out.
