Critic Reviews for The Bridge (FX) Season 2

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (8)

What had become a rote potboiler simmering on someone else's stove is now bubbling over with fresh eccentricities and exhilarating menace. Those who bailed out of frustration are advised to jump back in now.

[Demian] Bichir makes Marco's dynamic with his American partner, Diane Kruger's Sonya Cross, more than just another in a long line of odd-couple TV detectives.

Jul 9, 2014 | Full Review…

Season 1 got better as it went along; Season 2, which starts out stronger, looks like it will be a more-than-worthy continuation of a series that still needs work, but is definitely worth watching.

Jul 7, 2014 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Having seen two hours of season 2, I'm not ready to give up yet, but I'm starting to prioritize TV's darkest hours and wonder if The Bridge will make the cut.

Jun 26, 2014 | Full Review…

Bichir's still very good at the start of season two but the writing has lost almost all of its focus, switching from a mystery series to a piece that tries to capture the dark edge of crime on the U.S.-Mexico border and gets muddled along the way.

Jun 25, 2014 | Full Review…

While the splintered storytelling may frequently feal a bit messy, this ambitious border noir continues to exhibit great performances from its lead actors and the deliciously pulpy plotting remains hopelessly addictive.

Jul 2, 2018 | Full Review…

The Bridge has excelled in the relationships between its various characters.

Jul 29, 2014 | Full Review…

As long as Cross and Ruiz's renewed partnership seems necessary, season one fans should welcome the return of The Bridge.

Jul 11, 2014 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

This broader range of storylines could have led to a disjointed episode, but instead they complemented each other well.

Jul 11, 2014 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

As the world around Cross and Ruiz fills in and the portraits of other colorful characters fill out, the center relationship between the two detectives settles into a reasonably interesting place and Season 2 develops a loping, pleasing rhythm.

Audience Reviews for The Bridge (FX): Season 2

  • Oct 25, 2014
    A more focused season, The Bridge S02 corrected past mistakes and sought to wrap up some story lines that were a bit vague on S01. Stronger characterization of some characters, inspired scenes, great new character additions, specially from Franka Potente and consistent until the end. Still some story lines left me a bit dry, specially Linder’s. This guy was one of the most interesting things going on S01 but here he’s a bit wasted, which is a shame. Unfortunently, I don’t think the series got the attention it deserved and might end here. That’s fine though, everything was pretty much wrapped up, save for some obvious mysteries that were left purposely vague.

    Love this series! The acting has me constantly up and down! Love the array of superb guests actors well! I have never thought about what really happens in towns on the boarders and this series has really opened my eyes and got my attention to how very different life can be. Appreciate the use of Spanish as an equal to English in this series as well. I read this series has ended and so hope it is not so.

    Loved it, but the story had played out, no?

    Excellent show. I learned about it last week and I couldn't stop watching. The drama, besides being very realistic, presents a very refresh and entertaining perspective of the detective genre. It's open minding and presents the darkness of the topic in a very subtle way without trowing at your face blood all the time (as SOA or Walking Death, which show more violence). The Bridge is vey unique: it brings new tv drama, provides a new setting and ambiance, explores the other side of the border, and the lead actors are excellent. It's sad to see it canceled, because of lack of publicity. I wish FX will reconsider its decision and choose quality over money, for once...yeah, right, in my dreams! Anyway, if there is a singing list to bring the show back let me know.

    This is a very interesting show that actually deals with issues that we see at the El Paso TX Border and the actors did a fantastic job. Why can't we give this show another season? I am sick of networks showing good TV shows for 1 or 2 seasons and then cancelling them and replacing them with reruns or reality shows.

    Too many inconsistent plot threads and the lack of the Kruger/Bichir dynamic make The Bridge's second season a disappointing and occasionally tedious slow burn. The acting and cinematography are still top-notch, though

    Thumbs up for the excellent finale directed by John Dahl, who also worked on Hannibal and Justified. Good, dark, solid season in general. I hope it returns.

    new fave show so intense ya just the way i like it
  • Oct 01, 2014
    I hope that this show is not cancelled. I want a third season. It is gruesome and but it sure sheds some light on the crime committed on our border and how our federal government are inept.
