Series Info

A med-school grad must practice in a remote Alaskan village to repay his education in this quirky, fish-out-of-water dramedy. The series is populated with generally eccentric, often endearing characters who mostly baffle the young New York physician as he struggles to adjust to life in the isolated community. An Emmy winner as Outstanding Drama of 1991-92, the show came from the creators of `St. Elsewhere.'
