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).

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Show May 6 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Drama and Action Oct. 1 2010
This was a brilliant mix of action and drama. Much better than NCIS or any shows in a similar vein.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best! May 19 2011
All I can say is this was wonderful, kept you jarred to your seat and the acting is great. It is hard not to get caught up in all of their lives. Why it had to end after the 3rd season is beyond me.We need more just like "The Border".
