PAUL GROSS and DUE SOUTH - STILL LOVE 'EM AFTER ALL THESE YEARS

Fraser, Diefenbaker & Vecchio

I so loved Due South, the television show. I adored the character of the Canadian Mounty, his relationship with his father and with his “friend”, Ray. It has been off the air for years. I understand the DVD of it - is done with poor quality, but someday I’m going to own it. Canadian, Paul Gross is the main character and initially, it was written by Paul Haggis. I adore Paul Gross in Due South. I don’t know why I love shows that typically are taken off the air. This show was taken off American network TV, but continued in Canada following the plug-pull here. I detest a lot of shows that are on the air for years and years. Follow the link by passing the mouse over my post title and read about the global popularity of this show in Great Britain, France and Germany as well as Canada.

The following two videos are from one terrific episode. I use the embeds and links when both are available of Due South. When you use the links you can watch the clips in full screen.

No embed, but really good…
Due South Music Video - Wherever You Will Go by The Calling
The text of the video’s producer:
Basically, it's a Due South music vid... my third one, and it's about how Ray Vecchio and Ray Kowalski will follow Benny anywhere, no matter where or the dangers that lie ahead. I guess you could call it a little slashy if you have that sort of imagination, but I had their friendships (mostly) in mind when I made this... honest! Oh, and there's some of Fraser following Ray V around at the beginning too (just 'cos I thought he was more willing to follow him into danger, than he was with RayK.... it always seemed to me that RayK was the one doing the following in seasons 3 and 4) Anyway... ENJOY!

This show stands up today, even though it originally aired in the states in 1994. Good, is timeless.
