I love the earlier episodes of Northern Exposure too. Our public television station has been running the entire series. It's too bad it fizzled out in the final season.

While the final season was well "over the shark" I loved how JoEL got home.

Ms. C, once again you characterize the Star Wars debacle that was the prequels sooo well.

The last season of NE was AWWWWWWWful. Who WERE those people? Why did they think we would care?

And I could write a doctoral thesis on Star Wars. There is SO much wrong with episodes I-III. Where to begin????????

I am glad you also have the same opinion of the new Star Wars movies--and that irritation continued when they digitally remastered the Return of the Jedi to have Hayden Christensen as the ghost of Annikin at the end...arg.

Ah, the mark of a true okie.....saying she'd rather be in TULSA in July than where ever she is now...... :-)

Star Wars.....just enjoy them. It is all made up, so what if...whatever. Just enjoy them. I am looking forward to the new Indiana Jones movie !

I think most of us who saw the original Star Wars movies tend to view them as better - I know I do, and I certainly agree with your assessment of Darth Vader as a whiney middle schooler! Brilliant!

Seriously? Crowded House has a new album? I am SO THERE!

If CDs could wear out from being played to much, my Recurring Dream: Best of Crowded House album would have been belly-up a long time ago. The funny thing about that album is that my favorite song from it - "Instinct" - wasn't even released on the radio to the best of my knowledge.

Thank you for listening. I have to have some sort of outlet to vent my love for Crowded House.
