Action,Humour,Brilliant stories & Family Viewing,Highly Extremely Enoyable,
This review is from: Due South : The Final Season (Season 4) (DVD)I purchased the Seasons 1 to 5 (4) Box set & have to say they do not make them like this anymore as I feel this was the last TV Cop show that was actual family entertainment.
The story resides around Royal Canadian Mounted Police Constable Benton Fraser & from seasons 1 to halfway through season 3 Ray Delvechio who is a Chicago Police Detective,Defenbaker who is Benton's highly trusted & gorgeous Deaf White Wolf Dog & the Ghost (from season 2 to 4) of Benton's father Bob Fraser & drew in the likes of Leslie Nielsen to reprise the role of Bob Fraser's most trusted friend with this shows ever present & looked at in humour difference between the people of Canada & The US it also had car chases,more action & was just so enjoyable.
If you have not seen this before but you like shows where the innocence of Character is still residing but yet moving away from the Cheesy 80's type shows but will deliver a story & show enjoyable for the whole family from your 5 year old kid to your 80 something Grand Mother then this is for you.
The show was written by Paul Gross who plays the part of Benton Fraser & was the number 1 show in the US for it's first 2 seasons then it slipped off the number 1 spot but still remained high in the ratings chart both here & in the US.
Paul Gross who owned all the rights to the show ended the show while it was still on a high point rather than carrying on the show till it would become unpopular.
Brilliant in all manners of enjoyability & buy it,in fact buy all the seasons as I think you will want to look at it again & again.

I thought it was Paul Haggis that wrote the series, did Paul Gross write series 4?

Paul Haggis wrote the majority but it was Paul Gross who did the majority of writing after it returned for a fourth series.
