Men in Trees: The Buddy System

(S01E08) This episode took a dramatic turn about halfway through. Initially, I was a little leery of the unusual turn of events but I think it worked because the writers eased us into the drama. The first half of the show alternated between goofy and dramatic and then it was just all drama up through the ending.

  • "I'm not part of any organization that has initials." -- Evil Glasses-Guy to Officer Parkman, when accused of working for the FBI, or maybe the CIA on Heroes.

Men in Trees: Sink or Swim

men in trees cast(S01E04) Did anyone else's TiVo not record Men in Trees? For absolutely no reason whatsoever, my TiVo decided not to record it. Nothing else was scheduled, but apparently it wasn't in the mood. All this is a fancy way of saying that I missed the first eight minutes.

I tuned in during a bar scene where Marin was mourning the cancellation of her third book and the townsfolk were mourning some guy named Franklin. So, the whole Lost & Found storyline was lost on me (heh heh). So was the Jack/son storyline.

Men in Trees: For What It's Worth...

men in trees(S01E03) Whoops. I missed the second episode of Men in Trees. I was out of town last weekend and didn't realize the pilot wasn't also playing on Friday (there was an early premiere of it last Tuesday). Anyway, the recap surprised me so we'll see if I can play catch-up. Of course, this is the one show that is neither streaming on ABC.com nor is it available in iTunes. Grrrr.

My only question is... where did all the snow go?

Men in Trees: Pilot (series premiere)

by Anna Johns, posted Sep 13th 2006 7:42AM
men in trees(S01E01) First of all, get Northern Exposure out of your head right now. This is not the same show. In fact, it's not really like anything else that's currently on television and that alone makes Men in Trees refreshing. The drama is low-key, the comedy is sweet and sometimes cute, and the characters seem to have depth. In fact, the characters are the best part of this show. We barely meet most of them in the pilot but we get the idea that they're not just small town simpletons, rather they're educated men and women with complicated pasts that no doubt include heartache and sacrifice. And Anne Heche is delightful, with the perfect balance of independence and fumbling fish out of water.

The Five: Anna's fall picks

5. Men in Trees
I would have written this show off immediately if I hadn't been assigned to preview the pilot. A city girl ends up stranded in rural Alaska? Sounds like Northern Exposure, doesn't it? I suppose it is similar, but maybe that's why I think it's so good. I enjoyed the Anne Heche character and the supporting cast has closets full of skeletons. Plus.... gorgeous scenery!
