The Border Season 3; the last season; their is no more; I enjoyed the first 2 seasons of the show and knew 'going in' this 3rd season was it. What I didn't know was how shocking the ending would be and what my reaction would be? So without giving away the plot let me just say my reaction was "Wow, that was incredible". Like many viewers I'm sure, I was left breathless and upset by how the show ended for a few minutes and was mad their would be no more episodes. But then I thought--the ending was awesome because you don't know what will happen to the characters and you never will and your left intensely wanting MORE! A TV show that effects you so much you want MORE? That's not a BAD thing I realized, its a great thing. The show got me so invested I was mad it didn't continue; how many TV shows can you say that about? Not many in my experience.

So the 3rd season continues the same story lines from S-1,and 2, with the ICS Agents working closely with Grace Park from the Dep't of Homeland Security, and like before they are fast paced with just the right mix of action/drama and living up to the description of the show as "24 meets MI-5". I can't imagine why CBC cancelled this show cause I thought it was great and different enough from typical "American" cop/spy/CSI type shows to gather a loyal following and high ratings. But...lots of shows I think are great get cancelled and lots of ones I think are crap stay on--so be it. This series was 38 great episodes, or nearly 40 hours of 'edge of your seat' entertainment--so who says their is nothing good on TV? And the show ends with a scene reminiscent of the movie "Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid" a movie made in 1969 and where the 'ending' is still talked about. I LOVED this show; I LOVED season 3; I recommend the entire series.

Not only do they end the series with a cliff hanger, but this show was the best on TV period for the 2009/2010 TV season. Note that I didn't say on Canadian TV. Spooks in the UK and the second half of 24 were close, though The Border was a series that was coming into its own. The show has a wide cult following and I have heard nothing of ratings issues, so why did the CBC take off their schedule? Personally painful is that I now have to get my Grace Park fix via a remake of Hawaii Five O! First Intelligence and now The Border! I am guessing that there must be some corporate strategy where a hit show is developed and then cancelled before it's time?

I highly recommend watching all 3-seasons!

This TV series had a 3 year run and I am so thatkful that I was able to get Season 1 and Season 3 Through Amazon..If you like great police-type, detective-type story lines than this series is for you. At the time I purchased Season 1 and 3 was not available but I was able to purchase it at a late date. Buy it - you will NOT be disappointed - it is full of exciting and thrilling scenes.

enjoyed these seasons. though didnt get around to watching them till 3-4 months after getting them. unfortunately realized that there were at least 2 episodes that glitched pretty badly!! and at this rate, I cant resell them either! Also, they left the season up in the air and havent made any more seasons so it ended horribly!

Although an older TV show, it did not air on Australian TV, I have enjoyed it and only wish I could locate Season 1 to add to my collection.

I'm Canadian so I love it. I love all the anti-American jokes because I agree with them!! I can understand why the show was criticized for this though. The show is well done - good (excellent) writing. If you are a touchy American - don't watch. If you're a Canadian or good humored American enjoy one of the better homeland security dramas. I bought all three seasons.

I gulped down Seasons 1-3 of The Border and am crying for more, more, more! Canada has put out some great shows that I'm am beginning to favor more than what's available here. The writing focuses on issues and characters rather than sex and violence, with believable stories and outcomes. I'm looking forward to watching more Canadian television as they release it. This series was one of the best I've ever seen and highly recommend it to those interested in intelligent and well cast television shows. Really sorry it wasn't renewed.

I can see why American television did not like this series. The Border was exciting, well written and the actors/actresses were racially diverse and interesting -just like the plots. Ordinary people doing a j-o-b- in a 'keep the viewing audience engaged' manner!!!!!
