    What, only one classification for this episode? This was, doubtless, the most powerful episode to date and without giving away the ending, it's safe to say it's cleverly plotted, a nail chewer and heartbreaker. And those are just some of the reasons I watch this show. The Border has proven to be a fast-paced intelligent show, with all (and more of) the requisite plot and character development I've come to expect from the few very-top-rated American shows, but remains solidly Canadian in character. The ensemble casting is divine. Not a hair out of place. Superbly directed and acted; loveable, nasty, sassy, sexy, cool, tender, it's all here and it's credible. In fact, The Border reflects more the kind of smart writing we've seen in other Canadian (i.e. Chris Haddock) offerings: DaVinci's Inquest, Intelligence, to name two. Perhaps that's why Nicholas Campbell came onboard a few episodes ago. He fits right in, and he's the catalyst for all that happens... but I'll say no more.



    Bravo, and here's hoping this show has a long life.moreless
