The Bridge 1.3: "The Fat Lady Sings the Blues"

TV: The Bridge

Oh, The Bridge. You were so promising, and yet you're already gone, and yes, I'm still bitter. (The news stories said the show was being cancelled immediately, but my TV listings still show a new episode for tomorrow night, so. We'll see.) I'm not going to bother writing too much about the plot of an already-cancelled show here, but this episode featured more of what I liked about the first two: complicated, sometimes subtle plots. A lot going on at once. People with mixed feelings and conflicted emotions. Real, believable relationships of all sorts between the characters. (I still really like Frank and Tommy's partnership, and am happy that it's continuing into the union situation.) Aaron Douglas being surprisingly hot, and getting all the girls. I really, really enjoyed seeing Douglas as Frank here. It's a complex role - tough and self-assured, and yet vulnerable and sometimes insecure, and above all completely sincere, but pragmatic - and Douglas plays all the dimensions perfectly. I really hope we get to see more of this, somehow.
