I'm out, no new writers coming any time soon
3 May 2010 | by ottfriedSee all my reviews

I thought that maybe, just maybe, this would be different. Why, could you ask, why would this be different?

I projected credibility and honesty into the main character, because he played a similar role - dedicated to get his job done - as he did in Battlestar Galactica.

Now we are approaching the halfway mark for the series, and I am sorry to say... You've lost me. I will not follow the series anymore.

The reason? What began as an interesting story about a cop becoming head of the union of copes, not in uniform, not legally a cop, but still in soul and dedicated to both helping his many colleagues and do occasional police work... There is a lack of realism in the series. He doesn't grovel to anyone. This is realistic in any world. I have no faith in a union boss having ultimate say over anything - even if this is portrayed as very tough deals with his commissioner, to who he also loses once in a while. He is simply too strong, played, portrayed too strong. I would say it's a miscast.

I am fed up with the police world, talking about anybody as if they are citizens or scum, no in-between, or hero or coward... grow some hair on your chests, scriptwriters and watch some The Wire. But you had to accept the job that demanded action. Bang Bang, people dead, heroes here, witnesses her, victims here, and scumbag stupid motherfracker here. It is tedious, we want people. Feeling, not bleeding. No, I want - I want cost, consequences, real consequences, everything that interacts with a job like the one a policeman has. Like the one the criminal has. People.

The Bridge tries. It tries to be The WIre, and CSI and Heroes without superpowers at the same time. Strong man leading the flock. Strong man can admit his mistake Strong man has unbridled libido. It hints at feeling and human interaction, but is constantly interrupted by strategic talks, where the support actors feed the main character. ABit tiresome tiresome tiresome.

It's not even BG. It deserves new writers, or it deserves to die. It is beginning to stink of mediocrity. That is waste of bandwidth. And support.
