Season 2 of the Bridge is really gory. It starts with the brutal gang rape and beating of a young Mexican woman from season 1 and goes onto a female Mennonite Mexican assassin who murders a young boy and several others, everyone who can testify against anyone in Fausto Galvan's crime ring. The whole Mennonite Mexican thing was way over the top and ridiculous. They just kept throwing things into the show to try to save it and it totally tanked. Don't bother with season 2.

This season is a twenty-first century Western. Detectives Ruiz and Cross -- Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday -- have a show-down with their Clanton gang. The bridge this year is Wyatt Earp's border between the USA and Mexico. Cattle rustlers would raid Mexico and steal cattle in Earp's southwest and therby became outlaws.

Last year's plots B and C became this year's plots A and B. We met the detectives last year in season 1, but this year, detective Sonya Cross is no longer autistic.

The first year's miniseries of a "duel" with a mastermind serial criminal resolved itself in episode #11. Episodes #12 & 13 last year were teasers for this second season. Unfortunately, the teleplay this year doesn't have a musical score, and the cinematography is inferior.

Although a second year season, I wouldn't have watched it except that when I borrow a box set of 4 DVDs, I watch all four compulsively.

Perhaps this second season is a remake/copy of the Danish/Swedish original second season, but that season is not on hand in the library.

This mini-series format reminds me of "The Killing," which happens to be an adaption of a Danish miniseries. "The Killing" resolves itself at the end of season 2, though. Their detective pair are also quirky.

Trivia: I got a bit confused. The names of characters in "The Killing," Stephen [Hold]er and [Sarah] Lind[en] confused me with the name of character Steven Linder in "The Bridge" until I checked imbd.com.

I like it. Yeah, its pretty brutal, but to be honest its probably tamer than real life. Watch the documentary Narco Cultura an you will see that things in Mexico are even worse than this show portrays. I liked the characters and the actors. The script is pretty good too. There is a tendency to keep upping the ante with shows like this, so sometimes it can seem a bit ridiculous. But overall I liked it and would recommend it. If you don't like violent shows, don't watch this one.

Very solid series. Second season was better than Season 1. It would be interesting to see which direction the story goes in, but I heard the series was cancelled. Too bad.

I thought I had requested the Swedish version. I liked the Swedish Season 1. This is just not my kind of drama. The plot is good and the acting is believable, but I didn't care about any of the characters. I stopped watching it after awhile.

Warning. There is an extreme amount of blood, murder, torture, rape portrayed in this series, much more than Season 1. Be sure to see #1 first as this is a continuation that would be hard to follow otherwise. This is a graphic horror "comic" book translated to film. The plot line kind of skips around and you're left to figure out for yourself what the hell is going on sometimes. I too found the Swedish version of "The Bridge" better but is also very grim. Hopefully the library will offer their Season 2 when it's available.
