    I remember I used to watch this on CBN/The Family Channel and found it more enjoyable than informative. It was exciting and the characters were likable and the locale was pleasant to watch, but I also found it a little too politically correct, what with the suave, intelligent Canadian, the educated French woman, and the gruff, illiterate American. Quite stereotypical, and in some ways too contemporary, but I enjoyed it nonetheless and wouldn't mind seeing it again.

    I agree with you tvking 1. Bordertown was a very enjoyable series. As you said, somewhat stereotypical, but it's heart was in the right place. Being filmed on location in Canada gave the show a good background and gave a more realistic feel to the show. Sure would be nice if some channel would re-run the episodes.

    I really enjoyed this series, though I did not see it as anything other than an entertaining look at frontier life. The series was re-run here for quite a while a couple of years back (CTV? Global?...can't remember...) and then a few episodes came out on DVD, though I am still waiting for the entire series to be released on DVD. Some behind the scenes and bloopers would be fun. I did see a couple of bloopers on a Bordertown website,,,more would be great.
