"Dr. Longball" (DS
4.1)Original air date:Favorite quote:
RAY: Hey, y'know what they call third base?
FRASER: The hot plate?
RAY: No, the hot corner. You know why they call it that?
FRASER: I've no idea.
RAY: Well neither do I, but it does not sound good. [Ray turns to go]
FRASER: Ray! [Ray turns and Fraser throws him his glove. He drops it.]
FRASER: Oh dear.
It's taken me almost two years to get from the end of Season 3
to the beginning of Season 4. I apologize. Partly, this long hiatus has been due to excessively exciting health problems
; partly it's been due to the fact that Season 4 is my favorite season, and it's a lot harder to analyze something you love than it is to analyze something you like a lot. And, you know, once I finish writing up the thirteen episodes of Season 4, we're done. There is no more Due South
So fair warning: my love for Season 4 is unreasonable. I don't love every episode equally, but two of my three favorite Due South
episodes are Season 4 ("The Ladies' Man" and "Say Amen"--the third of my favorite episodes, for anyone who's curious, is "A Hawk and a Handsaw"), and in general, really, I love Season 4 more than is good for me.
And a reminder: this is an Equal Love For Rays zone. If you want to talk about how much you hate Ray Kowalski, please do it somewhere else.
Okay. On with the show!
