The Bridge Season 1 Review “All About Eva”

Now this is the show I always wanted to watch.

After touting the prospects of The Bridge for the better part of the season, watching David Tate hijack the previous few episodes caused me to face my worst fears for the show. The show did everything it could to make the chase compelling, but in a show with such a deep bench, relying on a know-it-all killer with the greatest iPhone on the planet seemed short-sighted. Now that they’ve freed themselves from the shackles of the Tate storyline, The Bridge came prepared tonight to be the show it promised to be earlier in the season: deep, rich, weird, and always interesting. Gone was hand-wringing and the man with all of life’s cheat codes. Back in were the people and places who struggle to make it past life’s earliest levels. The show was truly staring into the abyss following last week’s episode. Not only did it walk it back tonight, it did in a way that genuinely excited me for a prospective season two.*
