OK, so yes this is a CBC (Canadian Broadcast Company) series and is to my knowledge not the easiest to find (AKA watch on a regular basis) or even purchase South of the border. However, I am shocked that even on the Canadian and UK Amazon sites that there is nary a review for season 1 or 2. Grace Park and Nazneen Contractor sharing the same frame (who "out hots who?") should almost be enough to watch and subsequently generate a few reviews. I am happy to report that the show is so much more than Ms. Park and Ms. Contractor in bed room scenes (though there are a few of those). There is a tag line for the show that reads "24 meets Spooks" in deference to the fine US/UK produced series. I generally don't find The Border as complex as either of the aforementioned series. Perhaps in time (I am pleased to report that CBC has approved a season 3) the characters can become layered with greater complexity. I recognize material improvement in season 2 when compared to season 1, which was not too bad in its own right. The writing is sharp and sometimes humorous (I wonder if they added a comedy writer for season 2 to help with the double entendres?). The topics covered range from human trafficking to terrorism (both fundamentalist and eco), immigration, narcotics and general border issues (including an episode where a home on the border of the US/Canada burned down, as a result of the Canadian Border Guard stopping a US fire truck from entering without checking all of the fire fighters passports - apparently there is actually some quid pro quo in general services for some of the smaller border communities).

I watched all three seasons of this CBC show (which for some unknown reason they cancelled, likely due to budget cuts)and have purchased all three seasons. The cast is great as are the production values and the scripts. There is a good mixture of action and character development. The only complaint is that the third episode of season 2 is mostly unwatchable due to skipping and freezing in the middle section. Amazon was great in quickly replacing the DVD but the same thing has occurred on the replacement disc so this is a manufacturing defect. Other than that, I recommend getting all three seasons. If only the CBC would keep their quality shows on and get rid of the lower quality (i.e. cheaper) shows.

The Border Series was a wonderful find for us. We watched them in order and though some of the players may change, the quality stayed great! The concept of there being problems at the Canadian and US Border had never really occurred to us, so we were intrigued. It took us a show or two to fall completely in sync with the style or tone, or possibly it was just the show settling in to its own. Whatever it was The Border grabed us and made a small part of our hearts Canadians. We were sorry that it wasn't continued for more seasons. Each season ends with a cliffhanger so you may want to order each consecutive season as soon as you can, because you won't want to wait to see who lives and who dies.

Interesting plots and characters to both love and hate and seeing the USA from the other side of the border made this a great investment in fun and fueled many discussions as we debated the issues.

We were able to get season one and three through Amazon (USA) and we only able to get season two from (Canada). Which is no bad thing, since it reminds us to shop for shows not listed on Amazon.
