    The directing for the show is terrible, everything is too dark and hard to see. It also does not help that the episode dragged along.
  • Absolutely loving The Bridge right now!

    It's going pretty good how the writers took the original story of The Bridge/The Tunnel morphing it into a multi-season story with the ominous relationship between Mexico and The US border as this version's device. While the first season used the two mentioned original shows for the template I get the feeling now The Bridge is going original, . no more template.





    That said, things have, three season two episodes in, more intensity even though everything develops slowly, and simultaneously, with at least three separate stories yet to really intersect. That may just be the brilliance as the hook is set and missing an episode seems unthinkable.





    Lett's see Fausto's operation is falling apart on the US side and he needs to regain control. Fausto's got Robles, but how Marco goes surely will be of interest and will probably be very slowly revealed. Ray's and Charlotte's stupid greediness has already summoned their downfall thus they are going to have to do some creative negotiating, or running? Negotiating may work if their tunnel is still viable for Fausto's needs, but running, as poor of a choice as it probably is, looms large. Since Ray and Charlotte are total scumbags their sudden desperation is welcomed. Daniel is always on the edge per his ego and self-destructive life-style, so, of course, he has jumped right back in the deep end pursuing his all important story.. Adrianna should have more reserve, but her sense of right (not ego) is clouding her judgement. Sonya continues to seem totally bizarre and still has the most insight which is appropriate to the original Swedish character's brilliantly off center role. Hank knows he got a situation because Marco might not be 100 per cent trustable plus Hank isn't exactly relishing the DEA's heavy handed threats of taking over his case. Ted Levine really makes Hank the only person you feel is level-headed and exactly what he should be.





    Now, it seems to me that two things are really pumping up the volume to coin a phrase. That would be the way two already interesting characters are being used. First, there's the return of Linder as one of the few dispensers of justice that seems strangely untouchable. Linder is a truly great character brought to the screen remarkably well by Thomas Wright. He may not get the big air time, but he's always a commanding presence with that neat bit of crazed mysteriousness. And speaking of mysterious the new character of Nacht has ramped up the evil quotient in a major way. She's an unassuming looking hellacious demon of a killer able to disappear and appear not unlike vapor. She's a very interesting soulless new character apparently so bad that The Cartel ,who never hires women, sent her as a kind of fixer to the . side.



    So, The Bridge for those who watched the originals isn't feeling so much like a rehash, but fresh and highly involving Multiple stories all threatening to weave in and out in some kind of horrific intersection at any moment. Lots of great characters, some you feel for, plenty you hate, and some so downright bent you just can't decide. With the complicated multiple plots and the large cast of characters the wait between each week's episode seems like a test of patience. This pretty much was how I felt about Breaking Bad and that is a high compliment indeed.moreless
  • Trundling along well.

    Episode one had very little happen. Episode two had little action but set up some really interesting plots for the season and kicked it off the groudn really well. Episode three was a lot better than them both, as we had some interesting scenes and drama as well as the continued development of the storyline on multiple fronts.



    Interesting to see Charlotte and her people back again - I wasn't sure if they were going to be here or not since they weren't shown for two episodes, but I am curious to see where that goes.



    All up though, the season is picking up and I have high epectations!moreless
  • Nice episode

    I like where this is season is going... so many plots, each seems to be thrilling and all may end up in the same problem. Also nice that Mr Linder is back and last: Franka Potente as Eleonore Nacht is awesome! That kind of character should have been a villain in the early seasons of Dexter ;)
