Welcome to the rewatch reaction post for “All the Queen’s Horses”. As usual, most of the commentary is on the lighthearted side. Scoot on over to Truepenny if you want a literary-style analysis of due South. She has an excellent breakdown of what the Fraser/Thatcher kiss might- and might not- mean.

This is, of course, one of the classic episodes of due South, a favorite of most of ours. I think Shar spoke for all of us: “i'm so excited! the singing! the dead!bob! the kiss!” We also agree that this is one of Thatcher’s best episodes. She looks lovely in the serge, and her performance during the action sequences is also something we all would have liked to see more of.

For information on the actual musical ride, check out the wikipedia page, and the RCMP’s own info page. I, myself, have never seen it, but I understand that a fair number of people in the dS community have.

So, that’s it for this week. Please join us for the rewatch next week, Sunday 9/12 at 2:00pm EST, to watch “The Duel” and “Red, White and Blue.” If you’re shy about joining the conversation without knowing anyone, check out [personal profile] akamine_chan’s Getting-To-Know-You-Friending-Meme-Mixer-Thing-a-ma-bob at DW or LJ. And take a look at the Rewatch Rewrite community for ongoing plot bunny ideas.

We’re coming up on the end of S2, so a big change is on the horizon!

As I said in the "All the Queen's Horses" rewatch reaction post, I've been working on a snippet inspired by 's plot bunny about Fraser watching Thatcher leaving on the train, and the parallels with Victoria. I was wondering if I could impose upon someone for a quick beta. It's about 450 words, and I'd love to have someone take a look at it, point out the rough edges that need a polish, and give an opinion on general workability of style and content (it's sort of stream of consciousness, which either works or it doesn't, and I can never tell with my own writing. . .). Help with a better title also wouldn't go amiss-- I think I stole this one from somewhere, but I can't remember where.

*goes back to canning tomato sauce and editing podfic!*
