The Bridge Review: FX's New Drama Offers Enticing Clues And Plenty Of Promise

Of all the shows on the summer schedule, FX's The Bridge is perhaps the most intriguing. The network hasn't used much footage from the actual series in the advertising, instead opting for a bunch of brief, atmospheric spots like this new "Loteria" promo.

The aptly titled "Two Pieces" preview does a fantastic job of introducing the new series' dark tone and ominous atmosphere without actually giving too much of the serial killer based plot away.
