Product Details

Product Description

When two young drug runners are found murdered along Highway 401, newly promoted Superintendent Mike Sweeney (Hugh Dillon) is assigned the case with his new partner Ivan Sujic (Michael Nardone). Mike also suspects foul play in the disappearance of Sujic's wife Katya and that Sujic himself may know more than he claims. With Mike's wife Audrey (Hélène Joy) pregnant and his daughter Sadie (Laurence Leboeuf) a rookie on the police force, things may be looking up, but one thing that remains the same is that in Durham County, nothing is as it seems and secrets never stay buried.

2.0 out of 5 stars Big fan lost. May 20 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I am a big fan of seasons one and two. In my opinion, you couldn't find a grittier, more twisted yet engrossing series than this. Even better, looking at the stories, those seasons shouldn't have worked, but they did. It really got under your skin. In season three, this tightrope walk goes awry and leaves a bit of a tiresome mess. I think the main reasons are, the story goes from tight, internal, psychological drama to cliche cop drama. The storyline is stretched thin to the point of being absurd (the daughter's foray into the police world breaks even the hardiest suspension of disbelief, the treatment of the main storyline is heavy handed and clumsy) and where the first two seasons found tension in and between some amazing characters, that is thrown away for cheap gore and torture porn antics.

I love Durham County. I think it's one of the top shows on Television right now, and really Breaking Bad is truly the only show that I can think of that is currently airing that can approach Durham County's level of depth and detail as it pertains to the characters and world that they live in.

In fact, the one show I would compare Durham County to the most in this regard is The Wire. The Wire was such a complex show and every single character had such a wealth of depth to them and the dialogue and acting were all superb, as was the writing that it often felt like you weren't even watching a show, but were actually watching a real life documentary.

This show has that effect on me as well. I was thinking this as I was watching Ivan and Mike talking to Ivan's friend right before they went target shooting. Ivan was having a conversation and he was talking about why they call the man "Pansy", and then Pansy lifts his shirt to show a huge scar that he claims Ivan gave him.

A lot of shows don't bother giving a lot of back story on characters to provide depth. It's all about the here and now. With so many shows getting canceled early without getting a chance to build the audience, I suppose that can be expected. Or maybe it's one of the reasons WHY it got canceled.

Durham County has always been a very uncomfortable show to get into. It's not for the queasy or the easily offended. If you can't take scenes of violence or torture or crimes against women, then this probably isn't your show. However those who are able to get through it are handsomely rewarded with a top notch intelligent show that is richly layered with various levels of detail.

And as I wrote in my previous reviews of the series, this isn't a show that's violent for violence sake.

4.0 out of 5 stars Can't Wait To Watch Season 3 of Durham County April 11 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was so glad that I was, finally, able to get Season 3 of Durham County on dvd. The only complaint that I had about this entire transaction is the fact that, even though the item was eligible for free Super Saver shipping, I wasn't able to take advantage of it since I am a US resident. I, actually, ended up paying nearly as much for shipping as I did for the product itself, but once I looked at other sites to check prices, I realized that, even with the shipping charged by Amazon, they still had the cheapest overall price. I love buying from Amazon!!! They ship their items quickly, and the items are always in great shape when they arrive at my door step. Also, even though I made this from Canadian Amazon, I still received my item pretty quickly:-) Thank you, Amazon.
