Description

The Bridge is a present-day crime thriller exploring the tensions on the US-Mexico border. When an American judge known for her anti-immigration views is found dead on the bridge connecting El Paso and Juarez, Sonya Cross (Diane Kruger) from El Paso PD must work with her Mexican counterpart from Chihuahua State Police, Marco Ruiz (Demian Bichir), to catch a serial killer operating on both sides of the border. Marco understands the slippery politics of Mexican law enforcement, and while his police force slowly succumbs to the pressures and demands of the cartel, he’s one of the last good men in the department. He’s charming, but also cunning as he will do whatever it takes to get what he needs. This does not sit well with Sonya, who has Asperger’s and strictly follows rules as well as protocol. Her candid and off-putting personality fuels an unforgiving drive for truth. The case quickly pulls them into a string of murders on the border, a scene already consumed by illegal immigration, drug trafficking, violence and prostitution.

Customer Reviews

boring and uninteresting

There rare no scary moments and I wanted to be at least a few scares in the series. Also, the detective has mental problems, that idea was clearly taken from homeland. This Tv show is very slow and has some major goofs in it that are laugh out loud.

I Thoroughly Enjoy it.

I think FX has brought about something quite strong. I think it is well acted and touches on some important issues going on on our borderline. I know a lot of people complain about the acting. The female lead has an Autistic spectrum disorder called Asperger's disease which is on the lighter end of the spectrum. I think she plays it very well. And yes, there is the cop from Monk, but Monk had OCD, to the other reviewer throwing around the work Autism. For the complaints about the remake. Well every country is tapping other country's tv shows. Most people in the U.S. want something socially relevant. There is plenty to base a show off of with immigration, drug trafficking, and the cartel problems. Unfortunately cartels have made things a little more lawless with fear tactics and payoffs. Just to those who are considering watching it, this just reflects on how messed up many things are on both sides of the border. This is based more off of people rather than action. There action, but it is more based of a single serial killer, a drug cartel leader, a human trafficker, an American coyote, a mexico/US (El Paso) task force, a local news group, the black market, and personal life issues. The female lead's Aspergers reflects by her struggle to get close to people, bluntness, inability to grasp social norms, lack of desire for touch or extended eye contact, concise speech, but it makes her a good cop because she doesn't get caught up in political, social, or emotional bs, and that also provides her with an acute attention to detail. Aspergers comes in all different levels, she is highly functional and quite intelligent, she clearly yearns for significant relationships. This does not mean she is a savant.

So where's the latest episode?

Again, an episode has shown up on other services, but not on iTunes. Apparently I'm buying TV shows from the wrong place. Let's get it together, folks. Great show, but it would be nice to have the episodes actually show up on time.
