    The writing is so good, so clean and understated that it's a pleasure to behold.

    [It] looks like Sex and the City relocated to Northern Exposure. [18 Sep 2006, p.39]

    With a pleasant blend of quirkiness and charm, this is an M.I.T. we can all get into. [15 Sep 2006, p.68]

    A witty, sophisticated romantic drama.
  5. 70
    It’s really a sentimental looking-for-love show after all, albeit one with a wonderful lead actress who will surely do her best to bring nuance and spark.
  6. A surprisingly refreshing romantic dramedy full of appealing characters.
  7. Heche really shines in this role.
  8. Heche is very likable here. She plays some of the same notes she played when stranded with Harrison Ford in "Six Days Seven Nights," or playing Amanda in last year's "Everwood" guest arc, but also crafts a credible character, and slips into her central role comfortably.

    This ia a chick-flick series, so all the male critics jump on it. If you have mostly XX chromosomes, check it out.

    I'm trying to remember the last TV show in which every single member of the cast is not only amusing but actually likeable! And no I'm trying to remember the last TV show in which every single member of the cast is not only amusing but actually likeable! And no overdrawn, stupid caricatures, either. It's a great show!!
