In 1991, On the Christmas episode of “NORTHERN EXPOSURE”: Thereʹs hardly anything holidayish the rich, inspiring “Seoul Mates” episode doesnʹt touch on: Christmas and Hanukkah and the solstice, Mass and atheists and Joseph Campbell, surprises and ravens and… “ravens?” Not that the season brings bliss to all. There are those wracked with guilt and uncertainty — like Doctor Joel (Rob Morrow), trying to convince himself to cross that DMZ of faith and deal with his first Christmas tree (“I tried, but… scratch the plum pudding, thereʹs a matzo ball underneath”), or Maggie (Janine Turner), who dreads the annual arrival of that plane ticket home for the holidays but doesnʹt get one this year. And especially macho ex-astronaut Maurice Minnifield (Barry Corbin), who receives a visit from his only begotten son, one he didnʹt know he had — the product of a youthful dalliance in Korea decades before — and one he initially rebuffs. No matter what your beliefs, in that eccentrically ecumenical tundra called Cicely, Alaska, you join with your neighbors in celebrating the Native American myth of the dark-winged bird that stole light from an evil chief and placed it in the sky to illuminate the world and warm our lives.
