More, more!!

"I can't say it enough - we want them all! It is nice to see that they have, since this release, come out with Volumes 2, 3, and 4.

This disc has 2 episodes: (They are episode 2 and 3 from the first season)
The Runners - A driverless Mountie wagon arrives in Bordertown and Bennett must find the person who robbed the wagon and killed the driver and escort.
Medicine Woman - Marie suspects a federal agent, who delivers government food to the Blackfoot tribe, of illegaly selling the food to settlers.

This series ran on the Family Channel for 3 years and starred Richard Comar as Marshal Jack Craddock, Sophie Barjac as Marie Dumont, and John H. Brennan as Corporal Clive Bennett. Each episode is about 22 minutes long. The DVD has no extras, but the picture quality and joy of having these on DVD are well worth the great price. The show is clean and can be watched with the youngest of viewers.

From the back cover:
In 1880, Pemmican lay at the western edge of the Great Plains. Nearly a decade later, surveyors of the 49th parallel reached the community of 180 to find it straddling the new Canada-US border. It wasn't until the mud had settled that Bordertown's awkward, if not unique, character came to light. Law and order were dealt with on one side by Clive Bennett, a Mountie, and on the other by U.S. Marshal Jack Craddock. Whiskey traders, buffalo hunters, gold prospectors, silver miners, drifters, and drunks kept the lawmen busy. Still, clashes were inevitable; they shared an office devided only by a line - the 49th parallel. Acute rivalry in the pursuit of justice was further complicated by their pursuit of the same woman. Marie Dumont was a widowed Parisian, a sensitive lady of considerable breeding and the town's doctor.

It is so nice to know that Bordertown is only a disc away. Thank you Platimum for putting Bordertown on DVD. I'm obliged!
I want the whole series!

"WOW! I just finished watching the final episode on Volume 4. What a wonderful series this was. It could have easily gone on for several more seasons. With all the boxed set series old and new coming out from the lamestream networks, BORDERTOWN stands out in a class of its own. It would be fantastic if Platinum Disc Corp and Alliance/Atlantis could team up to bring all of Season 1 & 2 to complement what amounts to all of Season 3 available now."
Bordertown--the DVD with no number!

"Regrettably, this DVD has only 2 episodes--not the full second season--but Bordertown RULES!!! As others have detailed, these 2 episodes are fabulous. Thanks to Alliance/Atlantis for releasing the Bordertown shows in the USA. Hopefully, we'll see the rest of the second season. I can NEVER get enough Bordertown. Wish they'd do another series of new shows."
An "atypical" & brilliant show!

"Bordertown was a brilliant show, in my humble opinion. An "atypical" western, viewers not only got "disguised" history lessons (President James Garfield, Teddy Roosevelt, the Fenian Raids in Canada, etc.), but the show also depicts the Canadian version of western expansion, and educating Americans about their neighbours to the north is needed (now more than ever!)

The show, whilst technically a drama, also had a lot of humour and very appropriate for the entire family.

Whilst I'm grateful that we have now have two episodes on DVD's, the whole series would be even better!
