Due South was a cop show that followed the adventures of two policemen. Benton Fraser of the RCMP and Ray Vecchio of the Chicago PD. It was a quirky show with a sublte sense of humor and irony. It also had many other aspects to it from sci-fi to drama...which made it hard for TV networks to pigon hole into a particular slot.

Each episode usally revolved around Ray and Fraser having to solve some case or another and usally at the expense of Ray's repuation within the police department. With Fraser's pet wolf Deifenbaker and the ghost of his father at his side Benton lived up to the ideal that a Mountie always got his man. So even though his methods were unorthadox between him and Ray they slowly cleaned up the streets of Chicago better than the Chicago PD could do by themselves.
