    One episode is enough. This show is terrible, The acting by the lead actress is robotic and wooden. The show seems like it could be OK but it isn't going anywhere. The chemistry is not there either and the direction is all over the place.

    This show is horrible. The writing is poor, the acting is sub par and the action scenes are a joke. I had high hopes for this show as it was reviewed fairly well but I disagree. I love cop shows and comparing this show to The Wire is like comparing a Ford Pinto to a BMW 5 Series.

    Loving cop shows and watching virtually all that have ever been made, released as a pilot, movie, books you name it I have followed and been a major critique as they so often fall well short of the mark.

    Yet the bridge does so much more right, and entertains you on so many different levels, this gem should not be missed by anyone that holds any interest is a show that is willing to go

    Best cop show I've seen on network tv and close to rivaling cable tv's The Wire. There were a number of exciting predicaments in the first episode, some solved and some continued. You got to see conflict in the street and all the way up to the top of the police food chain. I'm looking forward to the second episode; and I hope the show continues in its twisted, yet Best cop show I've seen on network tv and close to rivaling cable tv's The Wire.

  1. People who like their stories wrapped up neatly in 44 minutes or so (yes, I'm looking at you, CBS viewers) may find this one a Bridge too far, but for anyone who likes their cops complicated and their plots twisted, there are worse ways to spend a Saturday night.
  2. By no means a great show, The Bridge is at least a little bit different from most police procedurals.

    It looks like one of the better original offerings on any of the broadcast networks this summer.
