El Pasoans Give ‘The Bridge’ Premiere (Mostly) Good Reviews

Did you watch ‘The Bridge’? After months of hype and some pretty good street buzz, the serial killer crime drama set on the El Paso-Juárez border made its FX debut Wednesday night to mostly good local reviews. Even though only a few scenes were shot here, a lot of what they call “exterior shots” of our city — like images of Downtown, the Bridge of the Americas, Rim Road, and the star on the mountain — made it onto the series premiere, which many in the Twitterverse loved.



El Paso’s finest, though, didn’t fare so well. Many who commented on Facebook and Twitter had a problem with all the cowboy hat wearing and Texas twang going on, as well as the lack of color on the police force.

All in all, though, ‘The Bridge’ got positive reviews from viewers on the Borderland and across the country alike, and if the first episode is any indication of the 12 episodes to follow, a second season looks promising. And I hear if that happens, producers have said they’ll shoot more scenes locally. One can hope! You can read more of what El Pasoans had to say about Wednesday’s premiere on both the KISS and Mike and Tricia Facebook page.
