First of all, I want tell you that I really LOVE Due South. But this is the only REALLY BAD episode. In my opinion it's racist and hostile to foreigners. The message of this episode seems to be: "Look, how crazy and dangerous the Haitians are!"
For these reasons I think this episode is really unacceptable.

This was an unusual episode of DS, containing supernatural themes. Even Diefenbaker is drawn into all the voodoo and black magic offerings. But, all in all, it was quite humorous with Kowalski's car missing while he's dodging his father's unexpected visits at the station, and trying to solve the case of the missing corpse at the same time. Welsh is very patient with Francesca in this episode. When workplace accidents start to happen at the precinct (including Dewey's backwards flip at the coffee machine), she manages to convince everyone that they're spellbound and have to join her anti-voodoo rituals. Makes a good Halloween episode.

I just wanted to say something about Review #1:
First of all I donīt think dS is racist at all!!!
And after all it turned out that actually a WHITE man was the bad one.
So, how can it be racist???
And nobody ever metioned that they were crazy.
Just because they were jumping around?? I donīt think so.
