I was only 11 or 12 when this show was on, but I loved it and never missed it ! It was on The Family Channel here in the U.S., and only lasted about 3 seasons. It was all filmed in Canada, and so is full of beautiful forest and mountain scenery. It was a wonderful and unique take on Western life in the 1880s, set in lush wilderness instead of the dry, crusty desert of traditional western shows. The culture clash of American and Canadian characters made it special and different as well. I thought the cast was great, the stories very interesting. I thoroughly enjoyed 'Bordertown' and was so disappointed when it got the final axe in the early 90s. It's easy to see how this show paved the way for series like Due South, Dr. Quinn, and the more recently canceled "Peacemakers."
There are now many episodes available on DVD. They are awesome and it is great fun to have the opportunity to see this show again !
