Storyline

The third and fourth seasons of "Due South" pick up shortly after the first two left off. Fraser returns to Chicago, to find a blond has assumed Ray Vecchio's identity, and everyone just seems to accept it but him. Fraser and his new partner (real name Stanley Raymond Kowalski) soon find level ground to agree on, and work together to solve crimes on the mean streets of Chicago. Written by Kaolin

Trivia

The leather bar in episodes 109 and 108 ("A Chicago Holiday" parts 1 and 2) is actually the set of The Raven, Janette's nightclub from the television series "Forever Knight". See more »

Goofs

Most of the city scenes are set in Chicago, IL, USA. However, if you watch the street signs you will see 'One Way' and 'Do Not Enter' signs without words on them, which are typical for Canadian cities (due to bilingualism laws worded signs would have to be in English and French). Also, speed limit signs can be seen posted in kilometers/hour instead of miles. See more »

Quotes

Benton Fraser: Hello, this is Detective Vecchio's cellular telephone. Er, Constable Benton Fraser answering?
Ray Kowalski: "Hello" is enough, Fraser.

User Reviews

They never should have cancelled it.
4 June 2003 | by (southern Sweden) – See all my reviews

I loved the show first-run and was thrilled last December (2002) when a local tv station in southern Sweden began to replay every episode as a daily filler. It's extremely clever, with wonderful, witty dialogue. The exchanges that Fraser has with the deaf Dief and his father's ghost are priceless as is the subtle (and not so subtle) sarcasm.

Just a few complaints:

*My favorite storyline was "Victoria's Secret" -- but what happened to Victoria? There should have been an ending there.

*By the time I got used to the "other" Ray (Stanley) being in the cast, they made him cartoonish and dumb.

*I think at the end, there was too much junk about women mooning over Frasure. All the googly-eyed stuff from his superior just plain embarassed me.

*Fraser should have ended up with a woman -- a good woman who would make him more human and save him from his own perfection.

It was a clever, clever bit to use actor Paul Gross' (Fraser) real-life wife as the ghost of his mother in the last episode. I have read that Gross "is sick of" this show and resents being remembered for it. If it's true, that's a shame. "Due South" will forever be one of my favorite television programs.
