News & Interviews for The Bridge (FX): Season 2
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.
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.
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.
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.
Audience Reviews for The Bridge (FX): Season 2
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.
