I didn't see a thread for this (if there is one already, my apologies), but figured I'd start one since there was a thread on the old board and the show returns tomorrow. I enjoyed season one a lot and I'm really stoked for the show's return. I saw Alan Sepinwall Tweeted that he was a few episodes in and thought the show was crossing from "really good" to "unbelievable" territory. Got me giddy. Who else is gonna be watching?
If this show can live up to the first few episodes, I think it will be a big hit around here in the future. We might as well get this topic started now! The serial killer/murder case stuff has been done to death, but The Bridge really sets itself apart because: 1. Location - El Paso and Ciudad Juarez are the primary locations and this show doesn't shy away from all of the issues that come with that. The first few episodes reminded me of The Wire because of just how central the location is to the heart of the show. 2. Interesting side characters - Old wise cop and goofy office cop are both extremely fun, creepy bearded guy is intriguing, the journalists play off each other well and the widow subplot seems important to the big picture. 3. THE LEADS ARE KILLING IT - I've read some early reviews, and, while some aren't sold on Kruger's performance, everyone seems to agree that Demian Bichir is bringing the goods. I think their chemistry together is going to make this show. Episode 3 airs tonight on FX.
