This is more aimed at viewers in Britain, but if any Yanks did watch the prog, great!

Anyway, there was a show on BBC around 1996, about a Canadian Mountie going to America and doing the detective stuff that detectives do. DOES ANYONE KNOW THE NAME OF THAT SHOW??? ITS BEEN KILLING ME!!!!

Due South ?

Description - sounds about right.

Is this it? I used to love that show when I was younger, but never could remember its name.

I am sure that it was "Due South". The premise was pretty bad, but I sure enjoyed the show.

Due South wasn't a BBC show, was it? I could see CBC possibly being involved, but I'm pretty sure this was an American network show.

I remember it...barely. The only episode I remember had the mountie and his American partner lost in the woods and being haunted by the ghosts of their fathers, who were also cops. I learnexd the official motto of the RCMP from that one (It's not "We Always Get Our Man"), but I quickly forgot it.

I like to go down to the playground and watch the kids run and jump and scream, because they don't know I'm only using blanks.
