The Bridge Season 1 Review “Take the Ride, Pay the Toll”

Meredith Stiehm, creator of The Bridge, is herself responsible for some of the best written episodes in the two year run of Homeland. With episodes like “The Weekend”, “New Car Smell”, and “The Vest”, Stiehm established herself as a writer capable of delicately playing with looming feelings of dread while extracting emotional responses from the audience. “The Weekend” is itself a masterclass in television writing. The emotion is present in front of you for the entire hour, but the looming sense of dread can also be felt. It certainly helps to have to reigning Emmy winners delivering the majority of your dialogue, but Stiehm certainly deserves her fair share of credit as well.
