(Video) MORE ABOUT "NORTHERN EXPOSURE"
John Cullum explains how the creators of the show, Joshua Brand and John Falsey. began to develop the characters based on the real people playing the parts.
It worked, it made the characters very real, but by the third season, Brand and Falsey began to run out of material. Em remembers the nightmares that various characters began to have, but delights in the episodes where John Cullum was actually singing.
Cullum reveals that the show was never shot in Alaska, and explains more about why using an actor's personal life begins to hurt a show, and why everyone was sad, of course, but relieved when the show ended.
