i must have seen a different film!!
Absolutely the worst movie.
Although I seem to have had higher expectations than I thought, the movie is super entertaining.
The film never slows down or bores, plunging from one harrowing sequence to the next.
i watched this show because there was absolutely nothing else watchable. this show taught me that, once again, all some American TV producers think people need to make a show watchable is boppy music, dime-store philosophy, rampant sexual undertones, every cliché imaginable, sadly predictable 'story' lines and stereotypical characters. unfortunately, for me (and most discriminating viewers) content needs to be evident, also. i stayed with it for the first 5 episodes and hate myself for doing so. that it is a poorly disguised rip-off of northern exposure is almost forgivable, but the parallels are not.
Love the show. I have to record it because it comes on at same time slot as my other favorite. Jack's recovery from sea brought him back with new hairstyle. Looks as if he just came from the big city beauty salon. Style would not be found in that small town. Looks great but citied. Might rough it up a bit for the show. Like he is just another town folk while filming. The show is great on character development. Not to hep on hockey team. Does not seem realistic for such a small town to be connected to a hockey team. Bring in small fishing tourist and guides. Plenty of real life comedy in other stories that really happen in Alaska.
I just love this show! In Australia it started in our summer season of 2006/2007 as a 'filler-in' in the 7.30pm slot for a few weeks, then almost disappeared into the 10.30pm slot without warning. At the end of summer it totally disappeared, and has returned for this summer and I have been watching it and still loving every minute.The characters are all wonderfully portrayed and the story lines keep me waiting for more. I also thought of the similarities between MIT and Northern Exposure, but decided to take this show and watch it on its own merit.I will be devastated if this show is axed!! It is bad enough that I may have to wait until next summer to see more episodes. I hope MIT's rating do well in America, so that it will not be cancelled, and I can see the show again next summer in Australia!
It is not a coincident that Sex and the City's creators had a hand in making Men in Trees. It's chosen Elmo, Alaska. I have always loved Anne Heche even though she has her own problems but she always has proved to be a good trooper. I love Cynthia Stevenson and thinks she's not being used enough. John Amos is great as Buzz. I also like Abraham Benrubi remember him from his days on ER. The cast is mostly masculine since the show is called Men in Trees and set in small town Alaska. You can't help but love Alaska if you have been there. Men in Trees is filmed in Vancouver, British Columbia and it's surroundings. I think the writing could be better and work more on Marin's personal discoveries. Just because a woman is alone is not the end of the world, it only appears to be thanks to society's dictation that women should not be alone and mated with a man right away or a partner. I think the show is a lot better than Sex and the City and Northern Exposure where a neurotic New Yorker is left behind. Marin loves Elmo for most of the right reasons maybe it's the nature and the less complicated life behind in New York City. New York City is not all that's cracked up too be. Maybe New York's over-rated.
