Australia: Border Security
Here’s an example of a good show whose American cousin fell flat. Airline never took off, so to speak, for our A&E network back in 2004, but Border Security, with its emphasis on immigration, customs and even quarantine at Australian airports, has been a big success. Some critics question how the series is edited, to show the supposedly flawless work of the staffers, but even Lou Dobbs types will find the issues engrossing—like the Korean woman in this episode who, it turns out, may be a mail-order bride.
