The Bridge Season 1 Review “The Beetle”

The season long murder mystery has become the drink of choice for many a network executive. So many networks are taking stabs (pun intended) at the genre, that murder mysteries really have to work hard to set themselves apart from the other 147 currently airing. To this point, The Bridge has been an outlier. It has managed to set itself apart not because of the pursuit of a very showy, tech-savvy killer, but because of the delightfully odd characters that populate El Paso, Texas and Juarez, Mexico. The show has such a command of its own outliers, that the main through line of the first season can seem like a drag in comparison. Still, the plot line had to be serviced. At least The Bridge does it in a compelling way.
