Flat Top-Level Comments Only. May I say that I absolutely love your analyses of the episodes? I've been a Due South fan for years, but you've given me some insights I didn't catch the first 5 or 6 times around :. Link Reply. I think that this was probably the high-point of my day which may say more about the day Truly delightful.
Your tie-in of Buffy at the end was a lot of fun. I don't suppose we might see some similar analysis of that show at a later date? This is the thing I absolutely adore about this episode and have harped on it at length with friends. Fraser's version of drag respects women, instead of mocking them, as most drag on TV does. Not all, just most- it's nearly always played for laughs and the joke is usually on women.

My theory about Fraser's dance abilities is that there's a large difference between being able to waltz "Invitation to Romance" and do, let's face it, somewhat dorky though acceptable disco, and being able to shake it onstage at a concert. I think it's very in-character for Fraser to know dance steps and so on without really being able to get down. Similarly, there's also the rehash, in the season 3-or-4,-depending episode "Odds", of Fraser's poker skills.
I'm inclined to give the writers the benefit of the doubt here as well, and say that Fraser's pulling his coworkers' legs by pretending not to know how to play when we've seen him in action in "You Must Remember This" - surely the fact that he can recite the whole etymology of the word "poker" kind of makes his "crowded home"s unlikely? Still doesn't explain why Huey isn't mentioning that past game, but hey, maybe they had a side bet running. I made a throughly undignified yipping noise when I saw you'd posted a new one: looking forward to the next, but in the meantime, thanks for all the awesome.
What a fantastically insightful commentary, and on one of my favorite shows, too! Great read.

Hey there! I really like how you've examined Benton Fraser as a person whose behaviour is a deliberate choice as opposed to being his natural personality. Your theory that Benton may be a recovered alcoholic is intriguing. I was wondering if you might write a piece on that.
How is DS lacking in continuity? How does this affect the series for better or worse? Gosh I am slow to catch up on this show. And probably will continue to be. So we have an ongoing conversation in our household about when it stopped being funny to simply stick a guy in a dress.

That's not funny. And they don't need to do anything else to make it funny. I think this episode is an interesting mile-marker in that conversation, because, as you say, it skips all the usual shtick. But also: the bits that are funny about it are self-aware of what they're doing. It's funny, not that Fraser is wearing makeup and earrings with his uniform, but that he has only done half of the necessary coding switch and is comfortable enough that he's forgotten.
It's funny in the same way that it would be funny if I was changing out of a two-piece ball gown and into casual clothing and had a flannel shirt over a taffeta skirt. And oh my, does that ever look like social progress from here.
