Signing up for Team Reality:
Part of the joy of Due South is that despite the wacky hijinx, it always maintains, at its heart, a very real emotional truth--we aren't these guys, but we could
be, on our best days, on our worst days. And what better way to celebrate that crunchy core of humanity and potential than to keep our feet firmly on the ground with some reality-based stories?
The grit of the city. The workaday world of a Chicago cop, pounding the pavement and maybe even pounding some skulls. Mr. Super-Mountie putting his pumpkin pants on one leg at a time. Mr. Super-Mountie being slightly less-than-sanguine about the sudden appearances of his dead father. But reality isn't all sweat and grease stains, either: it's also your favorite song coming on the radio at exactly the right time to lift your mood, or your partner knowing how you take your coffee, or a victory that you know damn well you earned
. It's your first kiss with your best friend, or the door slamming behind him. It's what you know, it's where you've been, it's where you want to go next.
That's Team Reality.
Feel like digging in to a story like that? Wonderful! Read on...nos4a2no9
