TV show description:      
This crime thriller explores the tensions on the U.S. – Mexico border. When an American judge known for her anti-immigration views is found dead on the bridge that connects El Paso and Juarez, Sonya Cross (Diane Kruger) from the El Paso Police Department must work with her Mexican counterpart from Chihuahua State Police, Marco Ruiz (Demian Bichir). Their goal is to catch a serial killer operating on both sides of the border.

Marco understands the slippery politics of Mexican law enforcement. While his police force slowly succumbs to the pressures and demands of the cartel, he’s one of the last good men in the department. He’s charming, but also cunning as he will do whatever it takes to get what he needs.

This doesn’t sit well with Sonya, who has Asperger’s and strictly follows rules — as well as protocol. Her candid and off-putting personality fuels an unforgiving drive for truth.

The case quickly pulls them both into a string of murders on the border, a scene already consumed by illegal immigration, drug trafficking, violence and prostitution.

Series Finale:     
Episode #26 — Jubilex
Marco’s loyalty is put to the ultimate test while Sonya attempts to tie up loose ends. Eleanor yearns for closure. Frye and Adriana land an insider source.
First aired: October 1, 2014.

    Yes, keep it going until it gets too silly to justify.

    Love Diane Kruger. German born model who shot to fame playing Helen of Troy in Troy and cemented with portraying the German actress in Inglorious ********.

    I usually don’t care much for blonds, but her face is magic and her body style perfect. In this series she constantly displays an odd looking expression as part of her physical malady as the cop.

    Amazing series!!! I was hooked right away and look forward to it every week. DO NOT CANCEL!!! What an amazing cast. It would be a huge loss. We have to keep this series going.

    Please keep this going. It is a great new show and very relevant to what is going on at the US/Mexicn border everyday. It took a long time to warm up to Sonya and I used to say if the show get cancelled it’s her fault because she keeps everyone locked out of her emotions but she has gotten so much better lately that I see lots of good things about her now and I think this show will continue to evolve and get better and better,.

    My husband and I think this is the best new show out there. We love Sonja’s aspergers and how it relates to her character and others. Love, love Marco and Kitty, just the whole show is number 1!!

    My husband and I love The Bridge. We are very selective on what we watch because we are busy people. However, The Bridge is one of the shows we never miss. Every character is well cast. They seem so real, with their flaws and life’s problems – just like most of us. Keep this show going.

    I love this series, and hope that we see more seasons. I usually don’t have the patience to watch a show, and will watch for 10 or 15 minutes, then pause my dvr, do some chores, and then come back to continue the viewing. However, with this one, I am so engrossed that the hour passes quickly!

    The Bridge is one of the best shows on TV at this time. I love the relationships between the main cast members. It is a smart show, there are so few of those these days. Yes keep it … that is a no brainer!
