Run for the border with FX’s ‘The Bridge’

It’s TV you can’t look away from.


“The Bridge” (10 p.m. Wednesday, FX) relies so heavily on a mix of English and Spanish that, unless you’re bilingual, you’ll need to always keep an eye on the screen just for the subtitles.

The first season was among 2013’s best series, thanks largely to the rarely seen plight of those living in the war zone that Juarez has become.
