It was a very positive start to the new drama. The ratings were on par with the debut of The Americans earlier this year.


Cable ratings are typically released within a day or so of the show’s airing, except for in the case of weekends and holidays. They are sometimes harder to come by so there may be occasional delays or gaps.

What do you think? Do you like The Bridge TV series? Do you think that it should be cancelled or renewed for a second season?

Yes. Renew. It’s good. It’s captivating. It’s different, yet familiar, which means it is new, yet accessible and reflective of the audience. Smart. Watch.

I love this show: the characters, the actors, the stories, the relevance, the atmosphere, the languages, the directing, and mostly, Diane Kruger.

So THAT’S what’s up with her … Aspergers. I had no idea until I read the comment section. Couldn’t figure out why she wasn’t connecting to people on a ‘normal’ level. Now it makes sense.

The Bridge is one of the best shows of the year, along with Breaking Bad, The Americans, and The Killing. It would be very disappointing if this show got cancelled in favor of some mindless formula drama, e.g., “CSI Poughkeepsie” or “Law & Order: Crimes Against Nature.” The acting is first rate and the characters finely drawn.

At times, it seems as though the writers put in Spanish dialogue just for the sake of doing it!!! As a Spanish speaker who speaks English, this offends me! Also , lots of the subtitles are incorrect! Come on, we live in the age of the internet–at least, get that right! Other than trying too hard with the Spanish, I find it very generic! I can take it or leave it…

The show is excellent in every way. Right now though, it looks like it’s a toss up whether there’ll be a second season ratings wise. If they can get to and remain around 2 mil viewers per episode, I’d bet on a second season.

It will be interesting to see how the public can handle her Aspergers.
She can sound rude but she don’t mean to be. Only 1 show, so I might have to see a few more to decide.
