It’s Like “Northern Exposure” but Without the Humour

Virgin River

We starting binge-watching this series on Netflix last night. Almost immediately I got the “Northern Exposure” vibe. But, to be honest, this one is more like a Hallmark movie.

The mountains in the background weren’t fooling me: the white-capped one above the river looked like The Lions. That alerted me to the fact that this series is yet another Hollywood North production.

Centers around Melinda Monroe, who answers an ad to work as a nurse practitioner in the remote California town of Virgin River and soon discovers that small-town living isn’t quite as simple as she expected and that she must learn to heal herself before she can truly make Virgin River her home

Storyline (from IMDb)

There are a few familiar Canadian faces in the crowd, most notably, Nicola Cavendish as the town gossip, Connie. My word, though, she and the rest of the cast seem to be so much older than I remember them. Of course, I’m getting older, too.

Since it’s early days, I won’t comment on whether the show is worth watching or not. But it has some interesting ‘problems’ to sort through for both the individuals and the town…
