| 49th Parallel
This Canadian produced western series had an interesting concept and I only wish someone had thought of it back in the day when I was a kid and westerns were what ruled television.

Bordertown was a place that straddled the 49th parallel which is Canadian-American border as fixed by the treaty that gave the USA Oregon territory way back in 1846. A little cross border cooperation in regard to law enforcement was a practical solution to a lot of problems.

Weekly, Marshal Jack Craddock (Richard Comar), and RCMP Corporal Clive Bennet (John Brennan), cooperated far more than the governments of the United States and Canada were wont to do back in the day. Until the 20th century the USA had this peculiar notion that the Canadians were just waiting to be annexed by us and would welcome liberation from the British Empire/Commonwealth. That in fact the nation was founded by folks of British descent who were fleeing Tories from the American Revolution and French folks who wanted their own autonomy in any event didn't faze a lot of American policymakers.

But in Bordertown bad guys were bad guys no matter what side of the 49th parallel they hung their hats. So these two cooperated out of necessity.

I'm pleasantly surprised to see just how many fans this show had. I so wish it had a longer run.
