Quotes

Ray Vecchio: [Fraser's pistol is unloaded during a gunfight] Who carries an unloaded gun? Would I carry an unloaded gun? Would anyone I know carry an unloaded gun? What do they shoot people with in Canada, serviettes? Does the word "bullets" mean anything to you?

Despite what some other user wrote, Due South had some amazing episodes. Sometimes dramatic, sometimes touching, always whimsical, Due South took some of the usual Canada/US stereotypes and managed to make quite a number of excellent episodes. Some episodes had more twists and turns than a year of soap operas, but the writing was always amazing.

In a sea of American TV garbage with laugh tracks and FOX network mentality, Due South served to show that you could be both serious and funny and still have a good viewing experience.

It was a shame to see the series is not being produced anymore. Personally, I don't see how the staff could have kept up the high level of quality the show demanded for much longer.

10 out of 10 in my books.
