The Border in U.S. & Smallville season 9! 
24th-Feb-2009 07:32 pm

The Border , which costars Catherine Disher and features Nigel Bennett as a recurring character, is coming to the U.S.

ION, a satellite and cable channel, has acquired the rights to air the series later in season 9. They were on my "no fun" list because they yanked Quantum Leap reruns just months after I found them there and this goes far at winning me back.

If you have DirectTV or Comcast then you should have ION.

This is fantastic news. Yes I have some very shiny DVDs in my possession but this is awesome for those who wanted to wanted and had to either wait or resort to other needs. ::cough:: like I sometime do.

Press Release is here. I was slightly annoyed that they mentioned Catherine Disher in relation to X-Men and not Forever Knight. hmph


In other news, Smallville just got a season 9 pick up. Season 9! There's no mention of Tom Welling signing and while one would assume that there would be no Smallville without Clark you never know with the CW monkeys. The man deserves a producer title. There are no ifs or buts about it. And lastly, if Erica Durance does not receive a full season increase in episodes there will be hell to pay. She's been a 13 episodes per season gal since she started back in season 4. In what is sure to be the final season they simply cannot have Lois Lane and do her character justice with only half the amount of episodes.

It sure is! It airs on the CBC on Mondays I believe. They finished their second season back in December and they've already been picked up for a third season. Catherine Disher picked up a nomination for best supporting actress but didn't win.

The series follows a group from Immigration & Customs Service and they deal with the problems of keeping security in a post 9/11 world. Cath plays the group's second in command and interrogation expert and Nigel plays a CSIS agent that keeps butting heads the group's head.

How nice that the press release also mentions that "The Border" is licensed to air in Germany as well. So far nothing has been reported over here. I keep waiting in patience.:)

Keep looking. I'm extremely surprised this thing even made it stateside. Yeah it's on ION which is near the bottom of the totem pole when it comes cable channels but hey I'll take it. It definitely would have fit better on a channel like TNT but hey none of the people in charge asked for my opinion. They must have lost my contact information. ;)
