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).Read more ›
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 Amazon.ca (Canada). Which is no bad thing, since it reminds us to shop for shows not listed on Amazon.

Really wished this show had gone on longer. It's so freaking goodPublished 14 months ago by PRECIOUS83
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. Read morePublished on May 19 2011 by Jackie A Moore
