For me it started at "The Tunnel"
28 June 2014 | by (Shellharbour, Australia) – See all my reviews

Well I have not watched "The Bridge" original or US version but started with the Tunnel. I was into this from the first ten minutes of the series and I was locked in like a great novel. The lead roles were well cast and acted and they added the additional tension to the France V's England Police Forces and their methods of investigation.

If you are aware of the story of the Bridge then you will know how this plays out but I have to say that I really enjoyed the plot and the suspense that is created and the intrigue that follows. Overall this is an awesome show and I highly recommend it, HOWEVER I can say the ending was very disappointing and seemed to end very fast and furious with no clear answers.

Entertaining just not Fantastic in it's completion.
