Over the years of watching Due South,
I began to notice a strange trend. It seems that Florida was mentioned
more times in the show than any other state in the U.S. (outside Illinois,
of course), and that whenever Florida was mentioned, something bad always
seemed to happen. I started calling this the Florida Curse, and I began
to look for it in the episodes. Below is a list of times I've noticed that
Florida was mentioned (also, as fellow DueSer Kelly pointed out to me,
the more times Florida is mentioned in an ep, the worse everything seems
to get. It's proportional! "Victoria's Secret" is the best example of this).
If you have any to contribute, e-mail me!
One more note: no offense is meant to Florida residents. This is all in
good fun (I have nothing against Florida. In fact, I go to school there).
Also, no offense is meant to Due South. This is not a page meant
to degrade it. It's my favorite show, and I would never say anything against
it. I just thought this was interesting. So, without further a*due*, here
