Girl of the Day - Janine Turner
Janine Turner was the girl lead on the romantic comedy set in Alaska, Northern Exposure, roughly 20 years ago. When my wife and I were first dating, it was our favorite show, and we watched it weekly, waiting for the Alaskan girl-pilot, Maggie O'Connell, to get together romantically with the New Yorker-doctor Joel Fleischman, who unaccountably has been exiled to rural Alaska to pay off student loan debts.
Here's a cool scene from the show:
Janine Turner is also a vocal and prominent Texas Republican, which is cool.
