Here's a good news that made my day. According to this web site, the first season of The Border will be available on DVD on November 18, 2008! Though I am myself addicted to 24 (can't wait to see the seventh season), I gotta say that I prefer The Border better. Although 24 is extremely entertaining, The Border has something that the former doesn't have: a realistic script that is inspired from real life political and social issues.
Moreover, while 24 always seek to throw in our face plot twists (this is particularly true about its sloppy sixth season), The Border is always thought-provoking. With this, be sure that characters are always facing dilemmas and that makes the show quite unpredictable without displaying the ostentatious intention to be unpredictable like 24.
By the way, the second season's premiere begins on Monday, September 29, 2008 at 9 pm on CBC for those who live in Canada. As for Europeans, well, be happy to have the first season broadcasted and wait for the second season to arrive in your country ;-)
