Episode of the week: 4x07, "Mountie Sings the Blues"

Time for another episode of due South! This week we are singing along with "Mountie Sings the Blues".

  1. Turnbull and Frannie had a DATE! ...sort of! How would you feel about a potential relationship between those two? Does Frannie really feel something for Turnbull, or is she just being polite?

  2. Country music: is it "the poetry of the people: unaffected, heartfelt", or "nothing but pickup trucks, trains, and donkeys"? What did you think of the various songs used in this episode?

  3. On a related note, what's your opinion of Fraser's (and/or Paul Gross's) musical abilities?

  4. When examining the letters from Tracy's stalker, Fraser goes into detail about how the writing indicates that the author is someone with psychopathic tendencies, and he sounds like he knows what he's talking about. Do you think he had special instruction in this area at some point, maybe as part of his RCMP training? Or is it something he just picked up from books and independent research, like a lot of his other knowledge?

1. I love the idea of Frannie and Turnbull together. He's genuinely sweet, and I think they'd be good together. At this point, Frannie is fixated on Fraser, but I can hope for Turnbull's sake that she'll realize the futility of that little fantasy and see the potential with Turnbull.

2. Country music: little bit of both "poetry of the people" and "pickup trucks, trains, and donkeys." Some country songs are really pretty, and some are beyond lame. The ones in this episode were ok (except for Turnbull's "I Won't Be Home for Dinner, 'Cause They're Hanging Me Tonight", that was just awful, but I guess it was intended to be.)

3. Personally I love it when Paul Gross gets to sing. "Ride Forever" is one of my favorite parts of "All the Queen's Horses" (as an avid F/T shipper, any guesses on my favorite part? ;-) )

4. It's probably a combination of both. They probably had a mandatory intro class regarding handwriting analysis, which peaked Fraser's interest, leading him to research it further on his own.
