An Ode to Northern Exposure, Star Trek: Voyager

Since I spent 1991 to 1995 in a conservative Christian college and then 1996 to 1997 in the Army where I didn’t have direct access to a television on a daily basis, I missed out on some great television shows. Right now on Netflix, I’m watching Northern Exposure. Through my son’s account, I’m also watching Star Trek: Voyager. I deeply regret not watching these shows when they were on the air. Yes, it’s great to have the DVD option of skipping through boring commercials and not having to wait the next week or next season to find out what happens next, but there’s something about getting to see it when it’s current and on television.

Of course, Dr. Joel Fleischman, Maggie O’Connell, Captain Kathryn Janeway and Chakotay aren’t real, but you know it’s a brilliant show when the actors play the parts so well that they seem real. When the show’s off the air and you wonder, “I wonder what Dr. Fleischman/O’Connell/Captain/Chakotay are doing now?”
