Critic Reviews for The Bridge (CBS): Season 1

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (6)

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

March 5, 2010 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

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

March 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.

March 5, 2010 | Full Review…

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.

March 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.
