4.0 out of 5 stars Great series, but the DVDs could be improved September 15, 2003
Format:DVD
Like so many others, I was ecstatic when my Due South DVDs arrived in the mail. However, I see I'm not the only person who was slightly disappointed by the presentation. The flaws in presentation are why I only gave the set 4 stars instead of 5. In my opinion, Alliance Atlantis didn't put a lot of effort into this set. I was hoping that they would put more effort into future sets, since this one sold so well, but it wasn't apparent in the second set. I hold out hope that the third season will be more polished.
First of all, the 2-hour Pilot was NOT included in the "Complete First Season." Mindboggling, especially since there was room on the DVDs - the third DVD had 6 episodes instead of 8. The inclusion of the Pilot would have also meant that both parts of "Victoria's Secret" would have been on the same side of Disc 3. As it stands, you have to flip the disc to see part 2, which interrupts the flow of that episode.
I was also disappointed to find that the DVDs contain absolutely nothing in the way of bonus features. The ability to choose from either English or French subtitles and audio tracks just doesn't cut it. Sorry. Other TV series sets have set the bar for this one, and the Due South DVDs, sorry to say, don't achieve those high expectations.
The third & last flaw in the set is the truly abysmal design of the case. I've never seen another set that crammed 3 discs into one case, requiring that two discs overlap each other and that the third disc is more or less hidden under the insert. The overlapping discs are very hard to remove, and I'm sure I'm not the only person who worries about breaking or scratching the discs. I bought extra DVD cases just for these discs, to avoid the overlapping case.

1.0 out of 5 stars *****Highest Insult Possible To Fans & Show Alike***** December 3, 2004
By mben
Format:DVD
I am a huge fan of Due South and I have been ever since I watched it on television years ago, but over the years I forgot about it, but when I started internet shopping I saw the season 1 dvds listed and it was an instant purchase for me.

When the dvds arrived I watched the first few episodes with no problem, but as I got to the second disc I found that the first episode was corrupted, the playback would stop and start and then just freeze altogether making the episode unwatchable. I looked through the rest of the episodes and found that two others had the same problem and most of them did not play back smoothly all the way through. Even the episodes that I could watch were made less enjoyable because of the jerky playback.

I was very much looking forward to having a marathon after so many years but now I've just lost all enthusiasm because the set has been so badly butchered.

Having read some other reviews I do not share the greivance over the double sided discs, the packaging or the lack of extras provided because I only wanted the episodes, but these are perfectly valid complaints.

I think that any true fan could probably look past these things, but to be sold a set this basic at an unfairly high price that is actually unwatchable is truly unbelievable to me, and I am disgusted with Alliance Atlantis for doing this to fans of the show.

Condsidering that they are involved in the 'CSI' shows which have been given perfectly good dvd trasnfers and most likely bought them large finacial success I cannot understand how they can treat Due South with so little respect that they cannot correctly encode or write the episodes to discs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cheaper at Amazon's Canadian store October 1, 2004
Format:DVD
This same DVD sells for $53 CDN at Amazon's Canadian store. Even adding $12 for international shipping, that comes to about $50 in US dollars, whereas Amazon here is selling it for $111. I ordered mine from Amazon.ca and it arrived in 3 days...such a bargain!

5.0 out of 5 stars PARK YOUR BOOTS MOUNTIE August 2, 2004
By B. Roby
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I watched this show when it was on television, on reruns, and in syndication. I purchased all the products from the website. I use the "Pizzas and Promises" episode for instruction in my high school television production unit. I listen to the music from the shows while dirving. Now I can watch the shows over and over.

The scripts are tight. The characterization reflects consideration of personal experiences. The stories keep the viewer watching. The visuals are strategically placed. Nothing is taken for granted -- once the viewer knows what to look for, in rewind or second viewing, one can actually see what Benton Fraser observes and reports. The humor is clever. Fraser's "life lessons" are delightful ("Duck means duck" or "Don't follow a man over a cliff" or "When the Inuit go fishing..."). The wolf's "dialogue" with Fraser cracks me up.

Paul Gross curls my toes. Benton Fraser does it for me also.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mountie-a-thon March 10, 2004
Format:DVD
(...)I definitely do not like the packaging, two discs are overlapping a little on their sides. They should have done it where each disc has their own folder .. folding out, that would not compromise on the size/width of the boxset either if that was an issue. When I received the DVDs from the courier, two discs in each boxset were loose and not in their holders. Although I don't think one can damage the discs too much .. unless you're really really careless. Not sure how it'll be down the line in a couple of years ..
For the price, I expected something better. For example, SG1 boxsets which are almost half the price have much better packaging - single boxes for each disc (5 discs total for whole season, like Due South). Or like 24 where it's a fold out box with each disc having their own holder.
As for the show, there are definitely no complaints there. It's all wonderfully crisp and clear, and no commercials! One gripe, as other reviewers have mentioned is that the pilot isn't released as well. Although I've heard that they now will include it in Season 3 boxset which will be forthcoming later this year.
