Demian Bichir, Diane Kruger
FX's border drama The Bridge has undergone a reboot of sorts in its second season.
While the show's first season followed Detectives Marco Ruiz (Demian Bichir) and Sonya Cross (Diane Kruger) as they hunted for a serial killer in Juarez, Mexico and El Paso, Texas, Season 2 casts a much wider thematic net. Now left completely to its own devices rather than following the Scandinavian show on which it was based, The Bridge has shifted its focus to examine how political and corporate corruption on both sides of the U.S./Mexico border permeates issues like the drug trade, immigration and human trafficking. But make no mistake — it's actually more twisted (and bloody) than ever.
"It is a radically different show, and I mean that in the best sense of the word," creator Elwood Reid tells TVGuide.com. "It's trying to tell a bigger story, but the way we're trying to tell a bigger story is not to shovel a bunch of facts at you. We're telling it through characters, through things that affect people's lives."
Adds Reid: "[Police procedurals] can be empty calories. I'm going to set the table, I'm going to serve you some appetizers, and then I'm going to serve you a real rich four-course meal of weirdness, and let's see how that goes, instead of just that constant sugar rush of hunting the serial killer every week."
Mae Whitman, Matt Lauria
To be or not to be ... pregnant: That is the question facing the writers of Parenthood as the show prepares to kick off its final season this fall. While the Season 5 finale wrapped up many of the year's ongoing story lines, so much so that it made star Peter Krause worry about a renewal, there was one huge cliff-hanger left unanswered: Is Amber (Mae Whitman) expecting? Aside from the hotly debated question of how she and on-and-off love Ryan (Matt Lauria) could have even had sex in his hospital bed in the first place — we're with you, Ray Romano — Amber was spotted buying a pregnancy test in the final act. While the writers begin to decide where the final 13 episodes will take the Braverman clan, we thought we'd help them out by devising a pro-con list of whether Amber...

Diane Kruger, Demian Bechir
The Bridge wrapped up its first season Wednesday, ending with an ominous vow of revenge on the part of Marco (Demian Bichir). Though the David Tate (Eric Lange) case is closed, Marco and Sonya (Diane Kruger) find themselves embroiled more than ever in the mystery of the missing girls of Juarez.

With so many crime dramas on TV, you'd think murder would be a universal language. But FX's The Bridge (Wednesday, 10/9c), an unusually timely and troubling mystery series set on the volatile border between Texas (sleepy El Paso) and Mexico (dangerous, corrupt Juarez), uses grisly symbolism to remind us that not all victims are created equal.
The phantom killer here is driven by a social conscience, taunting police on both sides of the cultural divide:
