If you watch The Americans (And I don't think many did) or Justified, you've seen the strangely vague teasers for this show. Well, here's the "official" trailer and it looks like FX might have another awesome drama on it's hands.

I watch(ed) The Americans, & enjoy it! And pretty much decided from the teaser promos to at least give The Bridge a shot. Police procedurals aren't my thing at all, but if it's got enough substance on the bad guy sied, I'll stick with it. On the other hand, the hype has ratcheted the expectations up pretty high, so we'll just have to see.
I actually really liked the episode. It worked as a total stand alone story (hell, it could've been made into a longer low budget horror type movie) I figured not everyone is raping there. But obviously she does use fear to keep people in tow.
