And there I made the effort of a pre-emptive strike because I knew this question would come up  :laugh:


Pete, I remembered something which should give you another incentive to join:
One of the recurring characters (later even in the regular cast) is a ghost  ;D

I have it in my shopping basket at Deep Discount now for when I get paid ($22.87 for all 3 seasons)... though I may try to wait for the sale that is coming up... depending how long that takes.  :P

I went to watch the clip last night...and felt compelled to keep clicking on links there until I saw the entire episode.   :laugh:

I haven't ordered it...but I am seriously considering it. 
And I could very well lag behind on a marathon of it as well...after all look at my progress with Bond and Hitchcock.   :laugh:

Due South (TV movie) (1994-04-26)
Writer: Paul Haggis (Writer)
Director: Fred Gerber
Cast: Paul Gross (Constable Benton Fraser), David Marciano (Detective Ray Vecchio), Wendel Meldrum (Leann Brighton), Charles Shamata (Capt. Walsh), Joseph Ziegler (Insp. Moffatt), Page Fletcher (Frank Drake), Ken Pogue (Gerard), Kaye Ballard (Mrs. Vecchio), Gordon Pinsent (Fraser Sr.), Jim Millington (Underhill), Victor Ertmanis (Supt. Meers), Michael J. Reynolds (Senior Official), Eric Schweig (Inuit Hunter), Kimberly Ange (RCMP Officer 1), Jennifer Parsons (RCMP Officer 2), Johnathon Wittaker (RCMP SGT.), Steve Morel (RCMP Officer 3), Scot Dentor (RCMP Officer 4), Nigel Hamer (RCMP Officer 5), Barry Kennedy (Bert Jenkins), Philip Williams (Herb Lantrell), Keith Dinicol (Coroner), Jack Nicholsen (Airport Hustler), Gene Mack (Chicago Desk Sgt.), Simon Lugassy (Prisoner), Dan Lett (Dr. Weingarten), Paulina Gillis (Maria), Ramona Milano (Francesca), Vito Rezza (Tony), Elizabeth Berman (Mrs. Drake), Sandi Stahlbrand (TV Reporter), Farzad Sadrian (Cabby)

It was really fun to revisit this TV movie again. Great introduction to the two main characters. None of cast which became the regular cast of the series are in this movie though. We have another captain (the one of the series is better). The only two other characters who are well known in the series to appear in this TV movie is Robert Fraser, Benton's father. And Francesca, the beautiful sister of Ray who develops a crush on Benton.
The humor the series is known for is already present in this movie.
The pilot made appetite for the series again.

If I remember correctly it's usually in early June. At least I hope it is, too, as I have a few stuff I am holding back ordering :laugh:

This is what I could gather from this thread about who is participating and when they can start:
Kathy (ordered it) - Mid/End June
Marie (considering it)
Pete (is gonna order it) Mid/End June
Rich ?
Rick (already got it) - next week
S├ębastien (ordered it) - soon
Tom (already got it) - anytime

Any corrections?

I'm actually in the same boat as Kathy.. Amazon says it won't ship until June 17th.

That will probably be me too since I ordered from Amazon.  I know it said it isn't available to ship immediately.  I'll have to check the emails later to see when it is supposed to ship.
