Great ! I don't know what others are complaining about. So what if it's derived from a Swedish production. The acting and writing are unique and excellent. Diane Kruger is refreshingly quirky. I've learned more Mexican Spanish than from all of High School.

Thank goodness for Amazon Instant. I had started watching THE BRIDGE season 1, but missed several episodes., so before season 2 began, I was able to re-watch & catch up. The series is extremely well written & acted.

The FX original drama "The Bridge" juggles a lot of disparate plot threads in its second and final season (the show was not picked up for a third year), but manages to wrap things up rather tidily from most standpoints before it says goodbye. I lead with this sentiment because I always find it incredibly frustrating as a viewer to be left twisting in the wind with little to no resolution after investing so much time into a series. While Season One adhered closely to the plot of its Scandinavian originator (where the bridge of the title was between Denmark and Sweden), Season Two claims its own identity. For me, Season One unraveled like a good book, it took its time to weave together different stories and different characters. It wisely opted for a more volatile and timely setting than the more chilly original. And in Season Two, things only get more heated. Here, the bridge connects El Paso, Texas with Juarez, Mexico and the action takes place on both sides of the border. In making this decision, "The Bridge" becomes more than just another crime drama (of which TV has plenty, even too many). It is also a study of contrasts in class and race, a commentary on immigration, and a gritty travelogue exploring the grim realities of life on the border.

I won't really delve into the premise of the show. I assume if you're shopping Season Two, you already have some idea of what you're looking at. Most of the cast are back and the action takes place in the immediate aftermath of the Season One finale. Juarez cop Marco Ruiz (the invaluable Demian Bichir) is isolated, despondent, and reeling from the fateful events of Season One. But Texas detective Sonya Cross (Diane Kruger) gets almost immediately drawn into a personal story that haunts her past.

Agree with some of the other reveiwers - loved the 1st season and would highly recommend it to others. This season so far - 3 episodes in - has been confusing. Not entirely clear who the extremely odd and demented woman is or where she came from. Not clear how she got the one-over on her bad-guy partner to end up killing him in a really bizarre way and leaving him to be found by the police with the weird taxidermy dog in the back seat. Funny though - the dog lead them to the taxidermist who ultimately lead them to identifying her...hmmmm. Will keep watching and hope that the plot thickens.

BTW, Marco is my favorite character and hope is finds a way to get the bad guys where it hurts but necessarily like a good police should. Just sayin...

Simply said this was/is the greatest detective program available. The main characters were so compelling and it was very interesting to see each of them in their down time which was no picnic. Each has an unusual skill that enhances their job performance. This is not superman. Raw and heartbreaking, I didn't miss an episode. They had each other's back and their personal issues was like gas on fire. I have no idea why the show was d'cd after season 3. But it left me feeling aborted, truly burdened that this amazing story about police working from both sides of the border coming together to solve cases involving brilliant criminals with hardcore motives and where professional expectations blur because they had to. Cryptic and frustrating, the personal lives of each detective slowly exposed to the "aha" moment. So much to work with it is a great letdown to see the bridge go down.

Season #1 won a Peabody for excellence. Outstanding TV across the board, writing, acting, production quality & music. This is a wonderful series. Not easy to watch & understand at times, but well worth your time. DC

Not liking Season 2 as much as Season 1. I heard this show lost one of the two writers it had during Season 1, so maybe that's the difference. Will have to watch more episodes, but this first episode didn't really engage me.
