That the series "Freaks and Geeks" is making it to DVD offers some hope of some day seeing a Region 1 DVD of the series "Northern Exposure." I think we would have already seen this happen were it not for the extensive use of eclectic music throughout the series, and I have heard that the producers are not up to the required music licensing challenge. Somewhere I saw the suggestion that they (the producers) consider a DVD release a dead issue. At one time there was an active petition at PetitionOnline.com, but this petition no longer shows up in a search within the site (it is reachable via Google however). Is a DVD release for this series indeed a hopeless cause, or is there something we can collectively do about this?
