ALASKA – It’s Not ‘Northern Exposure’ and That’s Okay

I miss Alaska most during the summertime down here in the Lower 48 (that’s what Alaskans call the rest of the US.)  I also miss Christmas terribly in July.

Northern Exposure was an amazing television show which ran from 1990 to 1995 and starred, among others, the hero from two of my only three favorite chick-flicks, My Big Fat Greek Wedding 1 and 2.

Filmed in Washington state, it was a far from accurate portrayal of Alaskan life.  But, that was okay by me.  The characters were flawed and multi-dimensional and the plots were tight and engaging.  Loved that show.

This is my first post about Alaska on this blog.  The only thing predictable about these posts is that they’ll have something to do with Alaska.
