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>

There's No Comparison - Just Enjoy
22 September 2006 | by zaamgSee all my reviews

Comparing Men in Trees with Northern Exposure is like comparing Boston Legal to L.A. Law or E.R. to Grey's Anatomy. Yes there are similarities but Men in Trees is not recycled Northern Exposure. Any show nowadays needs quirky characters or gripping drama to make it. This one has the former and it's not overdone. The characters are engaging and fun and have a story to tell. After only 3 shows I already look forward to finding out more about the town residents.

In fact, even if this were recycled Northern Exposure I would be thrilled. Northern Exposure was a fantastic show and I've missed such light hearted fun. Men in Trees may appeal more to women than men, but men might be surprised. Either way it's a fun hour on a Friday night and you leave it feeling satisfied and yet ready for more.
