    Two episodes so far and all it involves is weird sex scenes and dark characters. Not at all like the original show, and I don't like it at all. What happened to the great writing regarding the border crossing challenges and the investigations centered around that? After all, what is the name of the show...oh yes, The Bridge! Not worth watching any longer.

    One has to be both in the know, as well as acclimated to the gory violence and corpses that frequently appear on camera in order to follow along. As long as Cross and Ruiz's renewed partnership seems necessary, season one fans should welcome the return of The Bridge.

    It moves along with purpose and energy, but it's often at its best when finding colorful details and or allowing small, telling moments to breathe.

    As before, The Bridge loses its own focus frequently, sliding off into multiple storylines that follow pairs of characters, some less interesting than others, some downright distracting. But for all the time that feels misspent on Charlotte and her idiot boyfriend Ray (Brian Van Holt) or the self-deluding addict reporter Frye (Matthew Lillard) and his long-suffering partner Adriana (Emily Rios), The Bridge offers brief moments that resonate and sometimes, even chill.
