Editorial Reviews

In 1880, Pemmican lay at the western edge of the Great Plains. Nearly a decade later, surveyors of the 49th parallel reached the small community to find it straddling the new Canadian-U.S. border. Now known as Bordertown, local law enforcement is 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 keep the two men on their toes.
But the chaos doesn't stop there. Not only do Clive and Jack share a jurisdiction and an office, they also share a love for the same woman. Whether they're fighting for justice or fighting each other, there's plenty going on in Bordertown!

I guess I should first disclose that I was in this show every season as much as I could be without becoming a cast member. You can see me in the opening, cheering on the boxers. I'm the 'farmer' who gets into a fight with the Chinese laundryman in the opening of one episode. So, maybe I am a bit biased here. As I recall, these programs were made for the Family Channel (Pat Robertson's channel) and some network in France. The show was nominated for eight awards; I'm not sure if or how many they won.

All these programs will have some sort of little moral to the story. To a great extent, they were patterned after the Bonanza shows [TV-Series 1959-1973], with each one focusing on some character who was just passing through Bordertown. So, each episode has a very real human element, with each visitor having some kind of problem that needed solving. There is no offensive language or any questionable activity. It is a Western, so there are bad guys and they do get killed. A lot of them, however, are given an extra chance to turn good before the lawmen have to resort to violence. In short, it is a great Western, with episodes short enough that even younger kids can stay interested. And, many of the shows provide ethical issues that would be beneficial for families to discuss.

A bit on 'inside' info: Richard Comer was a really great guy and always very respectful and good to me; Barjac, and Brennan were a bit 'standoffish' to me. The fight scene, which was in one episode (that you also see in the opening), was done when it was really, really cold. We were freezing and we worked very late into the night to get that done. In another episode there is a fight in the saloon where a character breaks the stair rail and falls down.

Long before DQMW there was Bordertown, a half hour weekly western drama on the Family Channel. It ran for three seasons from 1989-1991, and was the Family Channel's highest rated original show. It was cancelled not due to ratings, but due to high production costs. 78 episodes were filmed. For some reason, this wonderful family drama has not been released on DVD in seasoned boxed sets. We only get 2 episodes from Season 1 and all of Season 3 (26 episodes.)

There is a difference between the boxed set and the four single volumes that were released. The boxed set has been digitally remastered. If you do not care about remastering, get the four individual volumes.

BORDERTOWN SUMMARY

Pemmican was a town in the western plains of North America near the 49th parallel (49° north latitude). It took until 1880 until the border was surveyed in the area of Pemmican, at which time it was found that the town straddled the border. In fact, the border goes through the local law enforcement office. In order to have proper and legal law enforcement, both Clive Bennett (John H. Brennan) and Jack Craddock (Richard Comar) have been stationed in the town. Clive is a colonel in the North West Mounted Police, and was formerly stationed in Toronto. Jack is a U.S. Marshal and a former Texas Ranger.

Each of these law officers is courting the fancy of Marie Dumont (Sophie Barjac). Marie and her husband (Jacque), both from Paris, lived in Bordertown until he died leaving Marie a widow. Marie is also the town's doctor and proprietor of the local general store. Marie has adopted Lucy, a girl whose parents have died.

Took a chance that this would be a new offering - could not find any information anywhere about this set. Turns out to be a re-release of Volumes 1-4 already available individually. I loved this series when it was on in the early 90s, just wish additional episodes would be released.

I agree with others who have commented on this. The series was great and I love seeing it finally being released on DVD, but I sure wish they had released it in season sets instead of random episodes. Still, I'll take whatever I can get! This was a very enjoyable series. They don't make 'em like this any more.

I remember watching Bordertown when I was a kid and I enjoyed it.
Now that I'm older I thought wouldn't be cool to see it all over again and catch the episodes that I missed as a kid.
I was looking forward to see this show from the beginning to it's end, all 3 seasons.

HAH!, yeah right, it doesn't tell you that what you're buying is only Season-3 on 3 discs, and 2 Episodes (FYI, the two episodes are the 2nd & 3rd episodes from season-1, titled "Runners" & "Medicine Woman" from Season-1 on the fourth disc).

You get none of Season-2 at all and nearly all of Season-1 is absent including the pilot episode.

I would not have paid for this product had I known what I was being shorted.

Also it turns out that this is the only thing that's available of this program, there's no alternate version or release that includes or covers the missing parts from this one.

Now I've seen many products from Canadian TV and Canadian film and show producers over the years and I've never really been unhappy with any of those products.

This Product was a Co-produced by French & Canadian companies.
I can only surmise that this is the result of the French Company's influence.
I can't see the Canadians selling such a sub-standard product.
