FX Network’s new crime drama The Bridge now has a companion iBook. I’ve been watching The Bridge since its first episode three weeks ago and I think it’s one of the very best shows of this genre. I’ve been gripped since the opening few minutes and now look forward to it every Wednesday.
So I was happy to notice last night that there’s this companion iBook that looks great on the iPad. Here’s a a little bit of detail on what The Bridge iBook offers:
Enter the world of FX’s new crime thriller, The Bridge, set in the bordertowns of El Paso, Texas and Juárez, Mexico. Prepare yourself for a terrifying series of events that begins when a woman is found dead on the bridge connecting the United States and Mexico.
Immerse yourself in this interactive, bilingual (Spanish) experience with parallax sliders and exclusive videos that take you into different worlds on opposite sides of the Rio Grande. Meet Detectives Sonya Cross (El Paso, PD) and Marco Ruiz (Chihuahua State Police), two detectives from two cities with seemingly little in common until a horrific crime reveals the dark secrets that connect them.
The Bridge is a show that’s more than good enough to merit a companion book like this, with lots more backstory to delve into.
I downloaded the iBook last night and spent time with it during commercial breaks in the show and afterwards. I especially enjoyed the video interviews with the two lead actors who play Sonia and Marco.
I also enjoyed the sections on the two cities of El Paso and Juarez, on the bridge itself, and on several of the main cast members.
If you’re a fan of FX’s The Bridge I’d definitely recommend picking up this free iBook.
