      Previous Gail Pennington St. Louis Post-Dispatch At its best, Due South is funnier than any of the comedies up against it. Feb 24, 2021 Full Review Jonathan Storm Philadelphia Inquirer His honorable innocence works wonders with the crooks and crumb-bums, providing him with safe passage through the worst parts of town and providing us with plenty of smiles. Feb 24, 2021 Full Review William Thomas Empire Magazine At its worst, Due South is a witty and well-written genre hit; at its best, it's one of the most original and quietly influential shows of the mid-'90s. 4/5 Jun 11, 2019 Full Review Barry Garron Kansas City Star The ingredients blended perfectly earlier this year when Due South was shown as a two-hour movie. And it works every bit as well in a compact one-hour form. Feb 24, 2021 Full Review Bruce R. Miller Sioux City Journal Once the stereotypes are exhausted, what's left? A field trip to Winnipeg? C Feb 3, 2021 Full Review Robert Bianco Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Some people thought this made-in-Canada comedy was hilarious. I was not among them. Feb 3, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews Next
