The Bridge (FX): Are We Ready To Dive Into Another Serial Killer Tale?

The Killing. Dexter. Hannibal. The Following. The Fall. The current television landscape almost has enough shows about serial killers to start a homicidal baseball team. Now The Bridge has entered into the fray with its own take on the madness that drives serial killers to kill. But do we really want to watch another story where the primary focus is on brutal violence, often perpetrated against women? From the shows above, I watch and am admittedly addicted to two of them (The Killing and Dexter) and I have intentions on catching up on two more (Hannibal and The Fall), but I often find that all of the death, violence and darkness can be overwhelming. That’s usually when I watch Bunheads‘ reruns. But while The Bridge is starting with a familiar theme, the violent death of two women–one an American judge focused on anti-immigration laws and the other a young woman from Juárez whose death went unsolved a year before– what sets the series apart, and makes it worth our time, is its timeliness and strong sense of place.

'The Bridge': Diane Kruger on playing a detective with Asperger's

If you noticed something a little off about Diane Kruger's character Detective Sonya Cross on the new FX drama "The Bridge" it was completely intentional. "[Sonya] is a daunting character to take on, and you have to accept that people might be put off at first when they first meet her," Kruger shared on a conference call last week. And although the history of Cross' exact condition is one of the show's many tantalizing mysteries, Kruger is comfortable revealing that Cross was conceived as a character with Asperger syndrome. It's a juicy role on a sophisticated series and perhaps Kruger's best opportunity to showcase her talents since her witty, charismatic turn in Quentin Tarantino's "Inglourious Basterds" brought her a SAG Award nomination. Here are five behind-the-scenes tidbits Kruger shared about how she approaches the playing Cross: 1) Explore something new"How can someone who has a condition such as Asperger's really excel at being such a... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/07/the-bridge-diane-kruger-on-playing-a-detective-with-aspergers.html

Murder And Mismatched Cops Anchor 'The Bridge'

If all " The Bridge " did was bring Demian Birchir to wider attention in the United States, that would be reason enough to watch the show. Fortunately there are many other promising elements holding up "The Bridge" (10 p.m. ET Wednesday, FX), which has been adapted from an acclaimed Scandinavian series by executive producers Ellwood Reid and Meredith Stiehm, a " Homeland " and "Cold Case" veteran. As is the case with "Homeland," "The Bridge" has a topicality that makes the series hum with a low-key but unmistakable energy. The drama's stories of crime and corruption on the U.S.-Mexico border aren't ripped from the headlines in a cheesy way, but the show meditates on these topics in ways that allow it to resonate more than your average crime thriller. In this day and age, it's astonishing that so many mainstream movies and films avoid topics like immigration and fraught border relations, but "The Bridge" incorporates these issues into its ongoing story in thoughtful and suspenseful ways.
