As an animal lover I commend the creator of this show. The 1st season of Due South had the funniest lines ever written for a wolf in the history of television!
Although the creator, as a writer of comedy, went on anonymity as a comedian, he did maintain his serious side as this production foreshadowed.
The truly contentious relationship between Canucks and Americans has never been portrayed with as much
As a fact, the Canadian ownership of everything from a national Airline to a home grown conveyance for law enforcement, a horse, is exploited fully. An archetypal example of the use of the "comic foil".
If you like sarcasm, you'll enjoy this as one of the best first Seasons ever produced for TV. Too bad about the creator, eh?
