Well filmed and competently acted but disappointing plot devices almost ruin it.
3 April 2018 | by msghallSee all my reviews

I enjoyed this series, despite the frustrating ending designed to provide a cliffhanger for the next season, not yet available on Netflix. While the series as a whole is quite enjoyable, the silliness of some choices by the lead actor can only be a result of the writers not being clever enough to devise more believable plot twists. You are left a few times feeling cheated and not just by the less-than-satisfying ending, but by the palm-to-forehead choices of the actors. I am looking forward to the next season but not holding my breath. At best a pleasant and sometimes involving diversion, 'Borderliner' needs better writing in terms of plot development to fully achieve its goals.
