    Cold Squad is a one-hour police drama originally on CTV that focuses on 'cold cases'; unsolvable cases that have gone for years without a solution. Each week there is a new 'cold case' brought out of the woodwork to solve, which may date back five years, or could even date back fifty years. The primary personality in Cold Squad is Sgt.

    CTV (ended 1996)
    In this popular series that ran from 1994 to 1996, Benton Fraser comes to Chicago in an attempt to find out who killed his father. After solving the murder, he decides to stick around and work for the local Canadian consulate. He has made friends with a local detective, Ray Vecchio, whose sister, Francesca, has a major crush on him. Although Vecchio is often confused by Benton's strange way of doing things and Benton is often confused by how things are done south of the border, the two get along famously, having an incredible on-screen chemistry. Due South was originally a made-for-TV movie on CBS, with location shots done in Chicago, but most shots were in Toronto. After the end of the 1994 - 1995 season, CBS dropped the show, and CTV had to secure outside funding to finish off the year, even though CBS did order more episodes as a mid-season replacement in 1995 - 1996. The show was cancelled in 1996 due to low ratings, with the final episode airing in Canada in May of 1996. A year later, they resurrected some of the cast and crew to create the 1997 - 1999 spin-off. While many of the cast from the original show returned, they were unable to secure David Marciano to continue his role as Ray Vecchio. The ratings never lived up to the producers hopes, and the spin-off was cancelled after 26 episodes. There is often confusion as to whether the 26 episodes with Callum Keith Rennie is part of the original series with David Marciano, because the two series were combined and presented together in the United States as one series with three seasons.

    Theme Song Lyrics for The Littlest Hobo

    There's a voice, that keeps on calling me. Down the road, is where I'll always be.

    Every stop I make, I'll make a new friend. Can't stay for long, just turn around and I'm gone again.

    Maybe tomorrow, I'll wanna settle down, Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

    Down the road, that never seems to end, where new adventure, lies just around the bend.

    So if you wanna join me for a while, just grab your hat, come travel light, that's hobo FORBIDDEN

    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down, until tomorrow, the whole world is my home.

    So if you wanna join me for a while, just grab your hat, come travel light, that's hobo FORBIDDEN

    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want want to settle down, until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down, until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

    There's a world, that's waiting to unfold, a brand new tale, no one has ever told, we've journey'd far but, you know it won't be long, we're almost there and we've paid our fare, with the hobo song.

    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down, until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

    So if you wanna join me for a while, just grab your hat, come travel light, that's hobo FORBIDDEN

    Maybe tomorrow I'll find what I call home, until tomorrow, you know I'm free to roam.
