Just have to say...
26 August 2001 | by (Tennessee) – See all my reviews

I just have to say that due South is one of the smartest, sharpest, funniest shows that has ever been made and not recognized properly. I will never understand why the networks fought so hard to take it off the air. Some of the lines in this show stay with you like a line from Seinfeld does. I'll find myself chuckling sometimes when I think of certain instances, even though it hasn't been on for years now. The networks really dropped the ball when they let due South go.
