The Bridge Season 2 Review “Eidolon”

We have three more episodes left of  The Bridge  this season. Last year the David Tate storyline was wrapped up at the end of episode 11, with 12 and 13 serving as a prologue to this season’s arc. I’m curious to see if Elwood Reid decides to go a similar route this time around or not. The ratings were not great last season and are even lower now sadly. I hope FX gives it another chance. There is an infinite amount that Reid could tackle (and I’d like to see the Lost Girls of Juarez back to the forefront again), and  The Bridge  has proved in Season 2 that it’s more than up to the challenge.

The Bridge Season 2 Review “Rakshasa”

I have no clue what Elwood Reid’s plan would entail for  The Bridge  Season 3, but I’d be fully on board for the ride. Aside from a few moments, “Rakshasa” continued on the excellent arc that has been unfolding. To keep things short (I’ve been suffering from horrible sinus problems the past 3 days; damn the ragweed in the South), my thoughts are divided into what was brilliant and what would again make Scott Evil yell at the television.

The Bridge Season 2 Review “Goliath”

Two quotes “You either do the right thing or you don’t!” This may be the case for Sonya Cross and yet  The Bridge  excels at revealing the areas of grey. There is the “doing the right thing,” but there is also “doing the right thing at the right time.” Take Hank’s handling of the Jim Dobbs situation. In hindsight, was it the right thing to do- probably not. But then one can play Hank’s confession to Sonya over and over and hear the anger, hate, despair, and utter sadness. Jim Dobbs didn’t just rape and murder Lisa Cross. He left a young girl without the rock in her life and destroyed a family. At that specific time, in Hank’s mind, shooting that man (who unbeknownst to him had raped and murdered even more) was the right thing to do. Every decision for Sonya is so black and white, so simple because of her condition. And maybe life would be that much easier if everyone could think that way. But we don’t. We think like Hank and Marco. Many times simple means no emotional attachment and for the majority of human beings that just isn’t possible. Marco took full responsibility for the Juarez police deaths to spare Sonya scrutiny. He tolerates Galvan and Robles because they trust him with confidential information. He smartened up and did not murder David Tate. Linder and Eva are on their own vengeance path taking down those responsible for her rape. Would Sonya agree with their methods? Heck no. But the Juarez police were the specific problem for Eva in the first place. So their actions become the right thing at the right time. It’s something Sonya is finally becoming privy to.

The Bridge Season 2 Review “Lamia”

The Bridge  ended episode 7 last season with the shootout between Sonya and Jack Childress. The momentum had been building exponentially until that point and the confrontation was a necessary step in progressing the plot. In the end though, Sonya discovered Childress was not responsible for the murders on the bridge. This then led to the whole David Tate aspect of the storyline which unfortunately went off the rails. I hoping Elwood Reid and the writers learned a lesson from last season because “Lamia” was an exceptional outing and would hate to see the show spiral out from its greatness.

The Bridge Review: Going After the Beast

Phew! Marco hasn't gone to the dark side. For a moment, it appeared that Marco was going to turn over Eleanor to Fausto when she was found. He ended up not having to make that decision, but being forced into that position helped him make a huge decision on  The Bridge  Season 2 Episode 4 . He regained his focus as one of the uncorrupted cops in Juarez. Read more:  //www.tvfanatic.com/2014/07/the-bridge-review-acorn/#ixzz3AwUfLHLs
