  Two companion documents to the FAQ are the Northern Exposure Episode
  Guide and the Northern Exposure Music Guide. The Episode Guide was
  originally authored by Andy Bates and finished by Kimiye Tipton . The very brief Music Guide was published by Andy.

  The quotes list for the show, previously maintained by Erin Sasaki
   was given to Cliff Chen . The list at the FTP site is up to date as of episode 4.19, 
  "Family Feud." If you would like information on the list, please contact 
  The trebuchet mailing list has been laid to rest, due to lack of activity

  About this newsgroup was created in the fall of 1992. If you are sending a 
  message to the group for the first time, we ask only that you send a message 
  that is appropriate for the group and that it is not insulting, flaming, or 
  trolling (see alt.folklore.urban for examples and explanations of trolling.) 
  It also helps to read the group for a few weeks until you get the general 
  feel of the group.

  Please refrain from using this newsgroup for personal messages.
  Remember that a post without any explicit distribution usually defaults
  to "world" in most news software. This newsgroup is not to be used for
  commercial purposes. And please don't post to "remind" us that it's
  only a TV show and that we need to get a life. We already know that and
  most of us already have one, thank you very much :-)

  A note on spamming: if anyone spams Usenet, including our group, please
  do not followup to the article. Rest assured that the FAQ author, as well
  as thousands of other Usenet readers, will be replying immediately to the
  postmaster at the offending user's site. If you see a spam show up in
  our group, hop over to news.admin.misc to see what happens to the little
  bugger. If you don't know what spamming is, it's the posting of the same
  article to multiple newsgroups (usually every newsgroup) regardless of
  the appropriateness of the topic. Previous spams have included "Make
  Money Fast," "Global Warning For All: Jesus is Coming", the infamous
  Skinny Dip advertisement, and the scum lawyers at Canter and Siegel with
  their Green Card lottery advertisements. When someone spams, chances are
  they will not read our group to see your witty followups. Although a
  large core dump placed in their incoming mail will do nicely :-)

  Picket Fences now has an alt group - If anyone
  continues to post about that show, please direct them to the proper area.
  If anyone is wondering why fans of that show would post here, remember
  that Picket Fences was compared to NX when it first began, just as NX
  was compared to Twin Peaks.

  A note on posting binaries to the group: it is not forbidden, it is not
  against "the law," and it doesn't even violate the charter of the group.
  However, the posting of large binaries is not nice. It's easier to post
  locations of FTP sites and let people retrieve that way. Or post them
  to one of the groups.
  What was Northern Exposure?
  NX was originally a summer replacement show from 1990 which developed a 
  large following, and was eventually picked up as a regular network show. 
  The show was created by Joshua Brand and John Falsey, who were also the 
  principal forces behind "St.  Elsewhere" and "I'll Fly Away."
  NX was not renewed for the Fall 1995 season. The last episode aired on
  July 26, 1995. And an auction was recently held that sold ALL of the props
  and equipment from the show, so any revival is highly unlikely.
  There have been six seasons of NX:

	1. Summer of 1990 (eight episodes)
	2. Spring of 1991 (seven episodes)
	3. Fall 1991 (23 episodes)
	4. Fall 1992 (25 episodes)
	5. Fall 1993 (24 episodes)
 	6. Fall 1994 (23 episodes)

  NX was the story of Joel Fleischman, a New York City raised Jewish internist 
  who financed his medical education through a scholarship from the state of 
  Alaska. Unfortunately, the terms of this scholarship required him to repay it 
  by serving as a doctor in Alaska for four years. Because there were no 
  openings in Anchorage, Joel was sent to the town of Cicely ("on the cusp of 
  the new Alaskan Riviera") to serve his term. But after certain circumstances
  happened, Joel first went "up river" and turned native, then returned to
  New York. The circumstances are best explained by viewing the episodes
  "Up River" and "The Quest." Joel was replaced in Cicely, by Dr. Phil Capra, 
  who longed to escape the rat race of life in Los Angeles.
  NX is shown internationally on various broadcast networks:

  Character information

  Characters and their histories
  Main characters:
  Phillip Capra (Paul Provenza)

  The new doc in town. He and his lovely wife Michelle left the Los Angeles
  area to start a new life in Cicely. They hated Los Angeles, but were they
  really ready for the charms of life in Cicely? Phil speaks French and
  enjoys biking.

  Michelle Capra (Teri Polo)

  Wife of the new doctor, she is a free-lance journalist. She is not very
  accustomed to life in the wild, since she first tried to defend herself
  against unknown woodland creatures with a thighmaster.
  Ed Chigliak (Darren E. Burrows)
  Ed is a half-native Alaskan who was raised by one of the local tribes
  when his parents abandoned him. Ed wants to be a film director, and has
  already started pen-pal correspondences with Martin Scorcese, Steven
  Spielberg, Woody Allen, Peter Bogdanovich, and others. Ed works for
  Maurice and Ruth-Anne, and has an IQ of 180. Ed has met the man who
  could be his father, Pete [Duets] and is in training (by Leonard) to be
  a shaman.
  Joel Fleischman (actor: Rob Morrow)
  A New York (Flushing) raised doctor who fulfilled the terms of his medical
  scholarship ($125,000 to attend Columbia University) by serving four
  years as general practitioner in the town of Cicely, Alaska (earning
  $465 a month after taxes [Grosse Pointe 48230]). Joel was the only
  Jewish person in the entire Borough of Arrowhead County, Alaska [Things
  Become Extinct]. After becoming engaged to Maggie, then thrown out of her
  home because it wasn't working out, Joel headed "up river" to start his life 
  over. He has since returned to New York (it's a "state of mind.")
  Ruth-Anne Miller (Peg Phillips)
  The owner of the general store in town, Ruth-Anne left the lower 48 in
  1971 with an old station wagon, all her household possessions she could
  carry, and her cats, to make a new life in Alaska.  Regrettably, one of
  her children is an investment banker.
  Maurice Minnifield (Barry Corbin)
  Ex-astronaut with a family fortune of $68 million [On Our Own], Maurice
  had big plans for the town of Cicely. The local radio station, KBHR
  (K-Bear 570 AM), is the flagship of the Minnifield Communications
  Network, and is almost solely run off the extensive music collection of
  Maurice (including a fabulous collection of show tunes). Maurice also
  owns the local newspaper and 15,000 "acres of opportunity."

  Mary Margaret (Maggie) O'Connell (Janine Turner)
  A bush pilot who owned the Capra's cabin, she was constantly at odds with 
  (but once engaged to) Fleischman (rarely did they call each other by their 
  first names).  Maggie was raised in Grosse Pointe, MI and is the daughter 
  of the youngest CEO in automotive history ("Do you remember the hatchback? 
  That's my Dad.") She flies a Cessna 170 (an old tail-dragger) [Birds of a 
  Feather], N4423V [The Gift of the Maggie] or N8326A [Russian Flu] (for 
  filming reasons, they use different planes in different episodes.) She is
  also the mayor of Cicely.
  Christopher Danforth (Chris) Stevens (John Corbett)
  (alias: Chris in the Morning)
  A free-spirit who can converse on Kafka and theoretical physics, as well
  as philosophize on any topic that might come to mind, Chris was the DJ
  at KBHR.  He began acquiring his vast wealth of knowledge when he
  spent time in prison in West Virginia (for grand theft auto, which is
  why he can no longer vote.) He jumped parole in 1986 [Democracy in
  America]. He lost his extradition hearing in 1992, but the judge ruled
  that the town must find a suitable replacement in three years or he is
  to be handed over to the authorities from West Virginia "should they show
  up." Chris also doubles as the town's minister, being ordained in the
  Worldwide Church of Truth and Beauty after answering an ad in the back
  of "Rolling Stone."
  Shelly Marie Tambo-Vincoeur (Cynthia Geary)
  Shelly was the woman over whom Maurice and Holling wanted to kill each
  other. A former Miss Northwest-Passage, Shelly came to Cicely to marry
  Maurice. But once she met Holling, she left Maurice to be with him
  (Holling is over 60 years old, but Shelly hasn't even hit "the big 21"
  [Northwest Passages]). Shelly is the only confirmed non-US citizen
  (she's still a Canadian citizen. [Northern Hospitality])
  Holling Gustav Vincoeur (John Cullum)
  The owner of one of the local bars, The Brick, Holling was an ex-trapper
  and hunter who swore off killing. Holling and Maurice are old and dear
  friends, but once were mortal enemies over the love of a woman. His
  family history of long life spans has lead him to believe that he would
  outlive any woman that he would marry (he was born Jan 1, 1929 [Things
  Become Extinct]), but he overcame that objection to marry Shelly.
  Holling was also a direct male-line descendant of French aristocracy [The 
  Body in Question.] He and Shelly are the parents of Miranda (Randi) Bliss 
  Marilyn Whirlwind (Elaine Miles)
  Phil's receptionist, who raised ostriches at her farm. She was in love
  with the Flying Man (Enrico Bellati) from a travelling circus, but
  could not leave Cicely to accompany him. (Character note: Elaine got the
  part when she accompanied her mother to the audition. The producers and
  director liked her timing and sense of humor better.)
  Recurring characters:
  Adam (Adam Arkin)
  The world's worst pathological liar (as far as Joel was concerned), Adam
  was a gourmet chef who was originally thought to be the Cicely version of
  Bigfoot [Aurora Borealis]. He popped up occasionally to cause havoc in
  life of Cicely. He and Eve are the proud parents of baby Aldrich.
  Eve (Valerie Mahaffey, winner of a Best Supporting Actress Emmy, 1992)
  Adam's wife, also the heiress to a $22 million tungsten fortune, she
  was the world's champion hypochondriac and once chained Joel to her cabin
  so that she could have a doctor in-house round-the-clock [The Bumpy Road
  to Love].
  Dave (William J. White)
  Cook at The Brick, he took a lot of abuse from Adam over his style of
  cooking (bacon is not pancetta). Dave and Ed are cousins to Marilyn
  through their clans (Dave and Ed are of the Bear; Marilyn is of the
  Raven). Note: William J. White gave up his role as Dave after reinjuring
  an old diving injury.

  Eugene (Earl Quewezance)

  Cook at the Brick (also known as "not-Dave" in this group), who had
  almost seamlessly taken over from Dave. He has a wife and two small kids.

  Ron Bantz (Doug Ballard - (DuckMallar)) and
  Erick Hillman (Don R. McManus)
  Owners of one of the local bed and breakfast establishments. They bought
  the property from Maurice, whom they thought at first to be a "kindred
  spirit," since he lives alone, loves gourmet food and show tunes. They
  also doubled as archaeological excavationists [Survival of the Species],
  and Ron served as a translator for Maurice and his Korean son, Duk
  Won [Sleeping with the Enemy]. Ron served as a Marine in Korea. They were
  married in a lovely ceremony.

  Edna Hancock (Rita Taggart)

  Edna was the mayor of Cicely, having been elected when she ran against
  long-time mayor Holling Vincoeur (vote was 255 to 247.)

  Lester Haynes (Apesanahkwat)

  A fellow Sons of the Tundra member to Maurice, he was also Maurice's
  nemesis in business. He was the richest man in the county/area, even
  wealthier than Maurice, and he's scammed Maurice on a few land deals.

  Cal Ingram (the violinist) (Simon Templeman)

  Cal was the violinist hired by Maurice to appraise the priceless Guarneri
  violin that Maurice was buying as an investment. His discovery that Maurice
  planned to lock the violin away in his safe, and not make it available for
  playing, drove him over the edge into deep psychosis. He eventually ended up
  in the state mental institute at Ellisburg. He escaped, visiting Cicely many
  times, where he has been hidden by Maurice and treated by Phil. He recently
  turned himself in (and turned on Officer Semanski) and is now in a half-way
  house. His first name Cal is short for Caldecott ("Cottie" to his friends.)

  Hayden Keyes (James L. Dunn)

  The town's ne'er-do-well, he has broken into Joel's office (for Maurice),
  claimed injuries for insurance and legal suits that did not occur, and
  fired off guns around the town's citizens.

  Walt Kupfer (Moultrie Patten)
  Walt lives with Ruth-Anne, and was an old friend of her's and Holling.
  He's currently a trapper, although he did try a stint as a clerk in the
  store. He used to work on Wall Street [Hello, I Love You], and was fired
  by Charlie Merrill himself.

  Duk Won Minnifield (Kwi Hyun (James) Song)
  Korean son of Maurice Minnifield and a woman that Maurice knew in Korea
  during the war. Recently engaged to Pak Soon Ae, who was the daughter of
  Maurice's sworn enemy, Pak Soon Yat.

  Mike Monroe (Anthony Edwards)
  A lawyer who once suffered from MSC (multiple chemical sensitivity), he
  lived in a geodesic dome off of Highway 3. He was hyper-allegic to the
  environment around him, a condition that developed in the last few years
  of his life. Mike was cured during his stay in Cicely and has since left 
  to fight environmental villains as a lawyer for Greenpeace. Joel thought 
  he was wacko, cured or not, but Maggie was attracted to him. Note: He is 
  NOT dead.

  Leonard Quinhagak (Graham Greene)
  Leonard was a shaman, and his healing skills have been shown in a number
  of episodes. Recently, Leonard diagnosed Ed as having the call and the
  abilities to be a shaman, but he warned Ed that his life would be very
  different if he takes up the calling.
  Elaine Shulman (Jessica Lundy)
  Joel's ex-fiance'e-- she left Joel to marry an older man who died
  shortly after their marriage. She and Joel have since reconciled their
  relationship and the unfortunate way that it ended.
  Sgt. Barbara Semanski (Diane Delano)
  A state trooper who shared the mutual hots for Maurice, but at first thought
  she could not sustain a relationship with him because of his disregard for 
  the law (tax law, that is) [The Bumpy Road to Love]. Since that time, they
  have spent more time together, and became engaged [Tranquility Base.]
  Bernard Stevens (Richard Cummings, Jr.)
  Chris' African-American half-brother. Bernard and Chris are psychically
  connected-- they discovered each other when they both had the same
  vision of a sculpture about the Aurora Borealis [Aurora Borealis]. They
  often share the same dreams and thoughts. Their mutual father was a
  travellin' man who just happened to have two families.

  Miranda Bliss Vincoeur (baby twin actresses unknown)

  Daughter of Holling and Shelly, Miranda, or "Randi," was born in Holling 
  and Shelly's living room upstairs from the Brick, during happy hour.  
  According to a dream sequence featuring Shelly ["Hello, I Love You"], Randi 
  will, at the age of 18, travel to Dallas, Texas to become a Dallas Cowboy's 
  chearleader.  Along the way, she will also be a big fan of Barbie dolls, 
  and a drummer in a local rock band.

  Morty (Morty the Moose)
  Morty est morte (dead.) He was part of the captive moose herd
  maintained at a Washington State Univ. research station. According to
  some reports, another moose at the station (Minnie) died of a cobalt
  and copper deficiency, and it was too late to save Morty.  Morty was
  about five years old at the time of his death. Most moose live only 6
  or 7 years in captivity, as opposed to up to 16 years in the wild.  
  Morty is survived by a number of offspring, including Melody and Matilda,
  sired in the spring of 1993.

  Who played the Flying Man? [Get Real]
  The Flying Man (Enrico Bellati) was played by Bill Irwin. A bio of him
  in the Playbill for "Largely New York," one of his Broadway shows, says
  the following:
  BILL IRWIN (The Post-Modern Hoofer, Author, Director and
  Co-Choreographer) was an original member of KRAKEN, a theatre company
  directed by Herbert Blau, and was an original member of the Pickle
  Family Circus of San Francisco, where he worked with Larry Pisoni and
  Geoff Hoyle. He appeared as a guest artist with the ODC Dance Company of
  San Francisco, which first produced his original work. His own pieces,
  often developed with Doug Skinner and Michael O'Connor, include "Not
  Quite/New York," "The Courtroom" and "The Regard of Flight" (PBS "Great
  Performances"). Skinner, Irwin and O'Connor have performed "The Regard
  of Flight" on and Off-Broadway, across the United States and in Sydney,
  Australia. Mr Irwin most recently appeared on the New York stage with
  Steve Martin, Robin Williams and F. Murray Abraham in "Waiting for
  Godot" at Lincoln Center. At the La Jolla Playhouse he played Galy Gay
  in Brecht's "A Man's a Man," Medvedenko in "The Sea Gull" and Arlecchino
  in "Three Cuckolds." He has appeared on Broadway in "Accidental Death of
  an Anarchist" and "5-6-7-8 . . . Dance!" On television he has been seen
  on "Saturday Night Live," "The Tonight Show," "The Cosby Show" and HBO's
  "Bette Midler, Mondo Beyondo." In Britain he appeared on the BBC
  "Paul Daniels Magic Show." His film credits include the 1981 Robert
  Altman movie "Popeye," Alan Alda's "A New Life" and John Sayles' "Eight
  Men Out." In 1983 Mr. Irwin was awarded a National Endowment for the
  Arts Choreographer's Fellowship, and in 1984 was named a Guggenheim
  Fellow and awarded a five-year MacArthur Fellowship. He gratefully
  acknowledges those awards.
  The Playbill was copyright 1989, and since then he has appeared in:
  "Steppin' Out" as Liza Minelli's only male student; "My Blue Heaven" as 
  the partner of Rick Moranis; Bobby McFerrin's video of "Don't Worry, Be 
  Happy"; "Eight Men Out"; "Fool Moon" (current Broadway production);
