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!

There was one review commenting on the audio on the set, I have found no issues with the set, normal volume levels. The only negative comment, if it is one, is that the episodes are numbered and not named on the disc menus. If you know which episode you are looking for, you have to review the jacket cover to see which number it is.
On the US side is Marshall James Craddock, a rough hewn, stand-up, no-nonsense, fearless and imposing legend who is not afraid to throw away the lawbooks in pursuit of whats right...
On the Canadian side is Corporal Clive Bennet, a tea-toatlin', jelly-spined, stuffed shirt, politically correct by-the-book sorta guy.
The chemistry between them is excellent and makes for some very interesting stories.
I would definitely rate this show with 5 stars, however, I give this product only 4 stars. The quality of the DvD's are pretty good considering that I am watching these shows on todays technology. The problem is that on each disk there is an episode that locks up whatever device I am watching it on. I have tried them on my PC/DvD/ Xbox 360 and 2 DvD players it always happens at the same point in the same episode.... There are no diret or scratches on the DvD's so I have to think the problem is with the data...
Even with the frustration the lock-up causes I am happy with this purchase. 10$ for 30 hours of quality television that won't make you stupid to watch is a great bargain.
I would feel very differently about the whole situation if this was a 30$ set.... but it isn't, so 4 stars :)
EDIT: Amazon gave me a refund on this because of the messed up disc. I am going to re-order the set and hopefully I will have no issues....
I am upping my rating to 5. It's true I had some hassle, but, this show is soooooooooo good, and 10$ for the series is an amazing value....
....if you like Westerns you will love this show... It is really that good... I love watching Jack clown that silly "Oatmeal Savage" of a mountie lol!
