Editorial Reviews

Gemini Award Winner for Best Dramatic Series. Featuring 26 Episodes. 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.

Apparently I didn't read enough of the reviews because at least one of the reviews I read lead me to believe that this was the complete third season as it was seen in the US-it's not. Part of the confusion is because of the difference between the Canadian and US broadcast seasons. In the US, the show only had three seasons-I was expecting the full 26 episodes, especially given the inflated price of the set (I second another reviewer-you can find a cheaper source than Amazon).

Despite what another reviewer indicated, it does NOT include the four episodes that weren't shown in the US the first time around, since they are all part of the "4th Season" (is Amazon shuffling it's reviews or something?)

So a warning to all-this set only has the 13 episodes that comprised the _Canadian_ 3rd season:

41: Burning Down the House

42: Eclipse

43: I Could's Been a Defendant

44: Strange Bedfellows

45: Mountie and Soul

46: Bounty Hunter

47: Seeing is Believing

48: Spy vs Spy

49: Dead Guy Running

50: Perfect Strangers

51: Asylum

52: Mountie on the Bounty 1

53: Mountie on the Bounty 2

Bonus-Pilot Episode

And a final Plea to Amazon-I've submitted this as a suggestion so many times my fingers are bleeding, so if anyone else wants to take up the call: INCLUDE THE @#@$#!%$@# EPISODE LISTS IN TV-DVD DESCRIPTIONS!!!!!

There are two camps in the DS fandom: those who fangirl the "real" Ray from the first two seasons (played by David Marciano) and those who adore Ray Kowalski (Callum Keith Rennie) from the last season. This DVD set is the last, third season (as seen in the US, instead of broken into two seasons as it was in other countries) and depending on which camp you fall into, you'll either love it or hate it.

The DVDs themselves are only of average quality, not really what you'd expect from a professional DVD release. More like something that you'd find on VHS. There aren't any good features, either, and CKR is nowhere to be found on the box. But on the other hand, the entire third season is here. No having to buy a whole other box set just to get the last few eps.

As for the show itself, it definitely took a different turn in the last season. I thought it started taking itself less seriously in most eps (there were exceptions for character development) and with Paul Gross at the helm as both actor and producer, it took more chances. Supernatural story lines (not out of the realm of believability, considering that the ghost of Fraser's dead father has been hanging around since the first season), Fraser becoming a bit more "superhero-like" in his abilities (which I saw as tongue-in-cheek, not bad writing), and most definitely a nod to fans of slash with major subtext between Fraser and Kowalski. (Something that pleased CKR fans, but made "real" ray fans do Linda Blair _Exorcist_ impressions; major split in the fandom.)

Paul Gross put more fun in the third season and yes, the writing could get wacky, as could the acting, but they were all having fun and if you look at it from that angle, you get a good laugh out of 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). And finally --

-- small thing though it may be --

-- the Caniadian Final (4th) Season set does have a small but utterly delightful extra. Paul Gross does a running commentary for both parts of CALL OF THE WILD.

I was excited to hear that I could purchase the Due South TV Series on DVD through Amazon since it was unavailable here in Australia (& since my VHS tapes were showing disintegration from the many times I was watching them!)

For Seasons 1-2, I was disappointed to find the packaging format was quite poor and there wasn't anything by way of DVD extras (not even out-takes). I also had problems with reading a couple of episodes even after attempting to clean the DVD disc surface.

When I purchased Season 3, I was also disappointed to find that it really only had half the number of episodes that make up a normal season, thereby forcing viewers to have to purchase the second half (and given the AUD$ exchange rate, does end up being quite expensive).

The only redeeming feature for the Season 3 release was that the episodes were not double sided this time around and they were properly labelled.

Overall, I'm just happy to have my own copies of the TV series that I enjoy immensely.
