    This season really is a let down after the peak of Season 3. There is barely a sighting of Adam, who has become a parody of himself and Chris: Would you shut up for a minute? Sure it has its moments but they are few and far between. The restraint the writers used in characterisation is gone.

    What is it about American consumers that makes them so incredibly and unbelievably whiny? No matter how many times it is explained to some as to why some of the music used in the original broadcast of “Northern Exposure” had to be changed people still gripe and whine about it as if the FACTS of the legal issues involved are nonexistent. The law is the law people and until it is changed they are the facts. Be grateful we can even get these episodes at all. Some shows, such as “WKRP in Cincinnati” will probably NEVER get a DVD release because of the legalities involved of song licensing. Would you prefer that NoEx be treat the same way? What on earth is Universal to do if someone who owns the rights to a particular song says NO to allowing the song to be used in a DVD set?

    But now we see a new gripe making its way into these reviews. I even saw one complaining because Universal changed the packaging designed meaning that all the DVD sets will look differently on a shelf. Amazing. How unbelievably nit picky is that?

    Why do people buy this, or any other TV show on DVD in the first place? Is it for the packaging, or the show itself? Sadly, it would appear that for some so called NoEx “fans” it is for the packaging.

    NoEx represents one of the finest moments in TV history and I am thrilled it is even finding its way to DVD given all the obstacles. Sure, it is too bad that Universal was unable to get the rights to “A Whiter Shade of Pale” for the closing sequence of the “Heroes” episode, but if the alternative was to not have that episode on DVD at all, well, I’ll take it without the song.

  3. C’mon people…I know there’s at least a few others out there. Raise your hand if you probably would never have notcied that some of the music had been changed, if it were not for the endless bitching of the “purists” and “real fans” of the show who simply cannot shut up about it. I guess I’m just not “deep” enough to notice, or care. I guess I’ll just have to be content with some of the most brilliant dialogue, and best characters ever portrayed on TV. I’m just glad I don’t have to hang around with any of these whiners….GROW UP, IT IS WHAT IT IS. Buy the DVD’s or don’t, but don’t buy them and then complain that they suck when you knew exactly what you were getting in the first place.

    Boy, can some people ever be dense. For the 4 billionth time some of the music has been replaced because of COPYRIGHT law. each and every individual song has to be negotiated and in some cases either the holder of the copyright was demanding a price so high that including it would price the DVD set out of the market (some of you might pay a few hundred dollars for such a set, but there are not enough of you to make such a set feasible) or they SIMPLY SAID NO. When faced with that situation Universal has only three choices 1) substitute the music, or 2) eliminate that particular episode from the set or 3) not release any DVD sets. Why is this so hard for people to understand? Was your toilet training THAT unpleasant?

    Yes, I miss some of the music, but I would much rather have the episodes without some of it than not at all. What a pity that for some people “Northern Exposure” was apparently ONLY about the music.

    Here’s the thing: Northern Exposure is one of the greatest series to ever grace the airwaves. No matter what music is playing behind it, it is still the same scripts, the same actors, the same plotlines, the same energy in the cast, the same spirit to the show.

    If you can actually remember every scrap of music that played during the original run of the series on CBS, try this out: Whenever you hear different music from what you think ought to be there, just hum the missing music to yourself. Problem solved, right?

    Would it be nice if the original music were included in these sets? Maybe. Does it effect the show in any way whatsoever? Hardly. It’s still a brilliant show, and the DVDs are as close as we’re ever going to get to the original show. Take what you can get, folks, because they didn’t have to release them at all…
