It seems to rely very heavily on the trope that Revenge Is Not Enough....
At several points throughout the game, I felt like I didn't want the character I was playing to succeed.... This includes both Abby and Ellie... It seemed like it was forcing me down a path I didn't want to take, whilst simultaneously telling me that what I was doing was wrong.

Squee & Nicola head to the Social bar in Southampton for a special live edition of Due South by South East. We talk about the first 5 parts of Hockey: A People's History, narrated by Paul Gross as part of Southampton Super Pod 2020, raising money for Sport's Relief. How did this sport help found a nation? How many died per hockey game in the early days? And how is Rugby so important to the history of the sport? As we enjoy Gross' velvety tones, we answer these questions and more over some rum! Let’s just hope they don't cut the feed before we are done!
As the characters of Due South lose one of their own, we pour out some rum for him and talk about how grief drives the characters, how they could have got a better lounge singer and how Dief is not impressed with a salad. #RIPLouisGardino
We are back, with an episode we recorded months ago! We talk about Season 2 episode of Due South, The Mask. Ray getting on with the ladies, sweat lodges and our new 'sponsor' tenaladies!
Ramona Milano, Francesca Vecchio herself, skypes in for a chat. We talk about her new play 'This is how we got here', how we are usually more like Francesca than Benny if we are honest, 'Fango vs Fangirl' and Benny & Franny... did they or didn't they? All this and so much more.
We are recording on a phone, Nicola is falling asleep after little sleep due to shoulder pain and Michelle speaks into the mic as little as possible, but we do have some Due South and rum, so it's not all bad. Dief is ill, Walsh is in trouble with his boss, Ray and Benny broach the streets and a couple of homeless children have a promise to keep.
