The Tunnel: Season 1

tunnel s1Honestly I tried loving The Tunnel, the British-French remake of the Danish/Swedish series The Bridge which FX turned into an American series by the same name about a grisly murder whose victim lands literally on the border between the two countries. The Tunnel has all the ingrediants I love about murder mysteries – strong yet flawed leading characters, smart writing, great location shots, international plots. I watched through to episode 8. Finally I had to admit I just couldn’t keep track of what was going on and not in a good way like watching The Wire for the first time. I know it’s kind of weird to stop watching a series with only two episodes to go until the finale, but honestly I’m confused and not interested. The quality of the show is excellent. The story is simply confusing. I lost interest. 2 out of 5 for The Tunnel.
