I like the show but it is awfully sloppy and uneven. They keep cutting away to the Stephen Linder subplot which never goes anywhere.

 

It would be fascinating now to see the original Swedish/Danish production, in which the bridge runs between Sweden and Denmark. Not hard to picture a beautiful blonde cold-as-fish Swedish woman as Sonya. Aren't they all like that? :rolling: And which country gets to be the upright, civilized nation and the other the depraved fourth-world psychotic hell?? Maybe they drew straws...

Can't we just get a code icon for this in the header like all the other functions?

 

Or how about if you're going to talk about the events of a specific episode you start a thread for that episode per the forum rules?  :D

Oh, you mean like every other general show topic that also mentions show specifics? Hopefully you're going around to each of them and lecturing them as well.

OK, I'll bite since I don't usually say anything about this problem.

 

So far we haven't succumbed to the Twitter "blurt out anything that crosses your mind" model here. It's admittedly harder to have the discipline to type - using brackets [ ] -

 

  {spoiler} around the discussion {/spoiler}  

 

or starting an episode thread with a title like Mad Men: "In Care Of" OAD 6/23/13 ***SPOILERS***.

 

I don't subscribe to a "never mention" rule in general threads, but I try to be careful not to violate the spirit of the TV Show Talk Forum rules. Personally, I'm not bothered by spoilers but I understand that many are. My wife doesn't even like me to tell her its the season/series finale until she sees the show.

 

No one is going to be booted from the Forum for violating the spoiler rule a few times over the years. But it is just common courtesy we should give each other. I personally would prefer we not become part of the "Twitter-verse" approach to posting here.

Hate spoilers. I don't even like the previews for the next episode.

 

It's gotten to the point here I won't go into a thread unless I'm caught up.

Same here.  That's the only reason I came back to this thread, being caught up.  I have a DVR, I don't watch things when they air and it's not unusual for me to be behind a few episodes.  I enjoy discussing the show itself but can't stand being told what happens in an episode in a "general" thread.  This is why rules were setup and need to be followed.  We were all asked what the rules should be and based on our opinions and recommendations the rules were developed and should be followed.

FX is heading back to The Bridge. The cable network announced that it has ordered a second season of the detective drama after being greeted by strong ratings stateside and abroad.

Good news. I wonder what direction the story will take? Perhaps we will know more after the finale tonight.

Somebody build a SPOILER icon/tool. I might point out that if folks actually adhered to this plan, there would be no need for a spoiler tool. All the spoiler stuff would be exclusively in the specific ep thread. But they're not, are they?

 

Last ep seemed like the finale. I was pleased we get another week for wrap up.

Could have sworn this week was the finale but no:

 

 

Wednesday October 2, 2013

The Crazy Place - Sonya and Marco search for a missing girl. Charlotte meets someone who knows too much about her new business venture. Marco makes a decision that could change everything.

Yes. I wouldn't call the finale a cliffhanger, but we have many story arcs to think about for many months.

 

EDIT: If anyone is curious, that song playing at the end was "Nowhere Near" by Yo La Tengo.
