Editorial Reviews

Three Complete Seasons of the Hit Comedy Series!
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Includes Call of the Wild Parts 1 & 2 June 2, 2008
Format:DVD
FYI - Since the listing doesn't let you know specifically, Season 3 in Due South: The Ultimate Collection INCLUDES Call of the Wild Parts 1 & 2 so you don't need to purchase the separate DVD.
FANTASTIC series! If you like Paul Gross, be sure to check out Slings & Arrows, a mini-series available on DVD!

Format:DVD
A friend of mine has the "Ultimate" US release featured on this page. I collected the original Canadian sets as they were released. Seen both. I wrote the following as Amazon commentary on the US releases of individual seasons. Still stand by it.

True, the US sets are cheaper than the Canada sets (though if you buy the Canada sets from Amazon.ca, they're LOTS cheaper than buying them as imports from Amazon.com). True, the Canadian sets have difficult packaging (DVD overlay and spindles that require a lot of pressure before you can pop out the disk without risk of damage). True the first two Canadian season sets use the dreaded "flipper" (2-sided) disks. True what we saw in the US as a third season of 22 (missing four episodes, by the way) was produced and broadcast in Canada as two seasons of 13 each -- and the third and fourth DVD sets are released separately too. (Does the US "third season" set have all 26?) And most ironic truth of all: if I'd known that by waiting, I'd have gotten all three sets cheaper from an American distributor, I'd've taken that route too.

However -- the Canadian sets feature pristine transfers. (I've read that the US sets use videotape as the masters; I'm not sure where this info comes from, but it doesn't make sense that the masters would be any different than what the Alliance sets drew upon, since they license the material.) The Canadian sets feature disks running at the highest speed. (The American disks are single sided because they jam twice the normal amount of eps. per side, and run at a slower speed. That, it seems to me, would account for VHS-like resolution.) The Canadian sets, for whatever it's worth, do feature accurate packaging (the right cast members listed and featured in illustrations).

1.0 out of 5 stars Great set... if you don't mind VCD quality. September 13, 2008
Format:DVD
DUE SOUTH: THE ULTIMATE COLLECTION has got to be the worst quality commercial DVD I've ever seen. I was really looking forward to watching this series for the first time. 68 episodes for $30 didn't seem suspicious since I figured it's a little-known show that probably underperformed for the DVD studio in season sets, so they decided to burn off their investment in one affordable mega-set. When I saw the first disc my blood ran ice cold: 6 TV hours on one DVD? Okay, most TV sets won't break a 4-episode per disc limit or risk some serious image compression issues. Fancy sets will do 2 or 3 per disc which in my opinion generates a reference quality picture. I thumbed through the rest of the discs and would have laughed had I not broke the manufacturer's shrinkwrap, thereby making a refund impossible: Some discs in this set contain a whopping 7 episodes!!! I skimmed through some of the episodes on disc 1: Despite the fact that this is an older show (pre-HD), and the image is naturally soft, there is expectedly HEAVY PIXELATION. Whenever someone or something moves, they turn into a blob of compression. Cars, people... in this shameful presentation, the show can't even fade out or in from black without turning into a videophile's nightmare. Cursing, I inserted a disc with 7 episodes -- morbid curiosity at this point. The cast can't even walk down a hall without the picture turning into a substandard digital cable parody. I suppose the math of the issue should have occurred to me: 68 episodes divided by 11 discs = VCD quality. Too late. So tell me, Echo Bridge Home Entertainment: What's the point of putting a show on DVD if it would look better on VHS? Thanks for disrespecting what I understand is a truly great show, and thanks for ripping me off. Have a nice day.

2.0 out of 5 stars You get what you pay for... December 16, 2008
Format:DVD
I think it was my grandfather who always used to tell me that you get what you pay for. That pithy proverb was never more true than when it comes to Echo Bridge Home Entertainment's Due South DVD collection.

I want to echo what others have said here. Yes, the price for the complete collection is right but with the price comes poor packaging (I have received two of the complete collections--a set and a replacement for the damaged set--and in both the first disc in set came off the spindle), scratched DVDs (in the two sets about 1/4 of the discs were scratched and looked used), poor picture quality (too many episodes squeezed on to too few discs still it could be far worse), video stops and starts, audio dropouts, and horizontal lines in the picture frame at one point.

If you like this series as I do and you have an all-region DVD player and the money go for the Network box set from the UK. The picture quality is far superior and so is the packaging. I have also heard excellent things about the French TF1 releases that have come out thus far.

By the way I bought one of the multi volume sets at a local grocery store that will remain nameless (season one, volume 1). It contained two discs and both were in much better physical shape than the discs in the complete collection. They also cost more ($5.95).

I love Paul Gross. This starts a little slow and geeky but after a little, I totally fell in love with the honorable values and sweetness. The characters become close family.
