Get Exposed: Northern Exposure, CBS' once quirky and charming series, is available on DVD (just the first season): This 7-time Emmy award-winning series is a remarkable blend of quirky humor and heartwarming storytelling. With an ensemble cast including Rob Morrow (Quiz Show), John Corbett (Sex and the City), and Janine Turner (Cliffhanger), Season 1 of Northern Exposure takes you back to where it all began. Fresh out of New York's Columbia University, cocky young Dr. Joel Fleischman (Morrow) is looking forward to his comfortable position in Alaska's largest city. Upon his arrival, Joel finds himself a fish-out-of-water as he's instead assigned to a tiny Alaskan village where the offbeat locals would love him to stay forever. Bonus Material: Deleted scenes; Never-before-seen footage and outtakes; Footage from the “Soapy Sanderson” episode; “Sex, Lies and Ed’s Tapes” Extended Footage. It retails for $59.99. The first season will leave you with the lingering question: Will Joel and Maggie get together?
