Critic Reviews for The Bridge (CBS) Season 1

It has at least two ideas that create interesting drama and could even stimulate a little thought.

For anyone who likes their cops complicated and their plots twisted, there are worse ways to spend a Saturday night.

Mar 5, 2010 | Full Review…

It's another in a burgeoning line of Canadian cop shows making the journey south, much more stimulating than ABC's aw-shucks Rookie Blue or CBS's Flashpoint shoot-'em-up.

Enough startlingly intense moments to keep you not only involved but captivated.

May 14, 2018 | Full Review…

The show makes an interesting if not-so-new point concerning the entanglements of the law and media, their effects on one another, and how they obscure experience as much as they might expose it. The Bridge can't sort out this dilemma, only reflect it.

Mar 5, 2010 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…

It's not your average CBS police procedural, with good guys solving the crime by the end of the hour. It's serialized and complicated.

Mar 5, 2010 | Full Review…

The cop drama isn't arresting enough to become the sort of self-starter necessary to succeed in the ghetto of broadcast television.

Mar 5, 2010 | Full Review…

The performances outside the lead roles are also shaky.

Mar 5, 2010 | Full Review…

"The Bridge" is well-performed and worth watching if only to see if it will stand by its thesis: that real change comes from people working together.
