The Beginning of the End for a great series
16 September 2009 | by (Mad City, Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

I'm a new fan of DUE SOUTH, by way of the DVD collection.

I dearly LOVED the first seasons; the writing was intelligent, and the plots were believable, tho somewhat unlikely. It was a show with warmth and heart and gentle humor... it was something that modern Hollywood productions didn't match.

When the series was resurrected for another go it was clear that something was missing.

Too many Hollywood influences were intruding; cheap double entendre dialogue ("Goat sh*t???" "No, that's GHOST SHIP!"), and plots that were clearly conceived by someone who'd done one line of coke too many.

MOUNTIE ON THE BOUNTY parts 1 and 2 made me want to cry. An excellent vehicle had just turned into a hackneyed series for people just going through the motions for the money.

The sly, subtle aspects of the series were dying; the homages were taking over. The early on references to A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE were cute, but it was easy to see that imagination was dying with the opening of part 1; the re staging of the cliff scene from BUTCH CASSIDY AND THE SUNDANCE KID.

When they pulled that one, they didn't jump a cliff... they were Jumping the Shark.

Good parts... Frasier singing the Stan Rogers song BARRATT'S PRIVATEERS in part one, and the unspoken reference to Gordon Lightfoot in part 2.
