View Full Version : Durham County -nice underhyped show
10-13-2009, 01:00 AM
Recently they showed season 1 of the Canadian show Durham County in the US. I caught the season and I really liked it. I think they are going to be showing season 2 also here. I heard that the actor that plays Ray Prager in season one isn't in season 2 though, which sucks. Cause I thought he did a really good and twisted job in his part. lol Thoughts on the show? :can:

I've only seen the first season but it's pretty dope. Haven't had a chance to sit down and watch the second.

I got in touch with the US channel that aired season one of the show, and they said they will be airing season 2 in the near future.

What station does it air on? Only Canadian TV I'll watch is TPB, never heard of this one either. Whats it about?

It's a pretty twisted show:
"The series stars Hugh Dillon as Mike Sweeney, a homicide detective from Toronto who moves his family to suburban Durham County to start over after his partner is killed and his wife Audrey (Hélène Joy) is diagnosed with breast cancer. However, he soon discovers that his neighbour and childhood nemesis Ray Prager (Justin Louis) may be a serial killer."
It's on the ION channel. You can catch episodes at yidio.com also.

I only know the county and not the show. Some of those towns in Durham are twisted. Ill stick with York county....maybe Peel.

Never heard of it. Sounds like a Dexter wanna be show, and I dont even watch that either.
Why are north americans obsessed with police, hospital and death shows?

It's not a Dexter wannabe show. The plot is completely different. The serial killer in it used to be a hockey player. That's what gives it away as being a Canadian show.

I watched season 2. It was decent, but not as good as the first. They had a different actor playing the part of Ray Prager, and his character wasn't in a lot of the scenes(his character was in jail). The storyline involving the messed up in the head woman psychologist and her son got repetitive. I'm looking forward to season 3 though.

Did anyone see season 3 of this show? The third season hasn't aired in the US yet.

it's HBO Canada, same with a few others like Call Me Fitz (dope show). ive seen season 1 and 2 of Durham County and it was okay . the neighbour was a straight headcase in season 1 and made it interesting lol
