Editorial Reviews

Due South is a lightning-paced action/comedy in which a quintessential, polite, by-the-book Canadian Mountie from the frozen North is teamed up with a wise-cracking Armani-clad Chicago cop with a flexible sense of morality. Brought together in the Windy City by a mysterious murder which has personal ramifications for both men, these unlikely buddies must find a common ground amidst overwhelming differences. Canadian actor Paul Gross (Buried on Sunday, Aspen Extreme) stars as RCMP Constable Benton Fraser, with David Marciano (Civil Wars, Harlem Nights) as his reluctant partner, Ray Vecchio.

I'm so glad I learned about this Television Series. I never caught it when it was on the air, but I'm loving the first season of episodes. I like unique shows that combine comedy, drama and quirky characters (like Northern Exposure, Gilmore Girls and Monk). Due South fits very well into this category. It's a cop show (complete with car chases.) It has wonderful characters you instantly like. The themes about friendship are strong. And the comedy is deadpan and hilarious. The set-up for the show is that a member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police ends up working in Chicago as the unofficial partner of a Chicago Detective. The Canadian is perfect: polite, proper, sweet, gorgeous, brilliant, loyal, proficient and ever-so-serious. The Chicago cop is cynical, bumbling, uncool, intuitive, and a loyal friend. They're the perfect pair, and it's the dynamic between the two of them that makes for great comedy. I highly recommend it anyone looking for a new show that's well written, well directed, well acted & well filmed.

"Due South" comes in two releases for the first season. There is a high priced release missing the two-part series premier and then there is this cheaper release.

What is the difference? This release was mastered from the original broadcast tapes. As such it isn't perfect, but it does contain the pilot episodes. I feel that saving the money in order to get those pilot episodes gives those viewers a chance to see an important background into the main characters.

This set does not contain, and you aren't paying for, closed captioning, languages other than English, or an extensive menu structure. I can live with that to save a lot of money.

Always loved this show (especially the first two seasons) but held off buying it on dvd till now, having read less than complimentary reviews of the versions released. Was amazed to see this item at such a price. A whole season, including the feature length pilot where it should be, single sided discs, with neat packaging. There are downsides, no extras or subtitles (perhaps they think everybody can lip read like Dief), and the picture/sound only seem slightly better than video at times, but at last I can throw out that crateful of videos and enjoy the World's Nicest Man, his frequently embarrassed new friend Vecchio, and the scene stealing wolf, to my heart's content.

Oh, and the music's great too; this series introduced me to Sarah McLachlan and Loreena McKennitt, for which, 'Thank you kindly'...

If you're a fan of the tv series and want only that, this is definitely the way to go. All of season one and the pilot is included! No fancy extras or animated menu screens, but who cares, you get DUE SOUTH ON DVD!! You can select an episode and a scene within that episode, and that's about it. My only complaint is that the visual and sound quality were lacking at times. If you're a fan and really get into the shows you probably won't notice. If the other seasons (when they're released) are of the same quality, I'll be happy.

The first season in a couple of words is simply fantastic. The story of a Mountie and his wolf teaming up with a Chicago detective makes a really interesting story that works. Paul Gross is definitely the right choice to play the lead in this series and Benton Fraser. Some stories are funny and others are touchingly emotional. Even now, this series hasn't aged one bit and it is a shame that it is never talked about much here in the US. Great episodes are in this season, but the DVD is lacking when it comes to content and picture. No special features are to be found on this DVD and the picture quality isn't the best, with streaks appearing for a couple of seconds in about three episodes, but most of the time it is great. But with those small flaws, the episodes are so great, all of the mistakes with the American DVD can be forgiven. This is definitely a great series that is recommend for all.

I was very excited to come across Season 1 at my local Borders Books and Music. I was a late fan, having only seen a few episodes when it was released to syndication, then just as quickly yanked from the air waves. I could finally catch up on what I missed.

Having now seen the first three seasons I would say this is the best of the three (though we are not blessed with any episodes written by Paul Gross, this time out). The relationship, and frustrations, between Fraser and Vecchio can sometimes boarder on hilarious as they learn to adapt to each other. On the other extreme, such as the two part, end of the season

episodes: "Victoria's Secret", you get to witness the tenderness Vecchio feels towards Fraser. His friendship and feelings of guilt help Fraser through one of the worst trials of his life and sets up the great opening episode of season 2. The secondary relationships between Fraser and his wolf, Diefenbaker, Vecchio's younger sister (who has a HUGE crush on Fraser), "Huey & Duey", Fraser and his ghost-father, Robert Fraser, just add to the greatness of this show (you may even grow to love Vecchio's car as much as he does!).

Like many, I was pleased with the cheapier US price, rather then the more expensive international version. However, my only complaint, like so many others, my DVD's do stall or skip from time to time. I have no problem with the transfer, keeping in mind it has been a decade since the show was last aired, and only on occasion do you catch the low quality.I have read the international versions have the same stalling/skipping/scratched DVD problems as these versions.

Don't let the manufacture mess ups stop you from buying these box sets though, the little hic-ups are no big deal in the larger scheme of things. I love having this great show in my DVD collection!
