A nice remake.
The theme song sung by French actor Charlotte Gainsbourg, whose father is a French singer and mother is a British actor, what a match!
And the Chile's gin, song and poem... gracias a la vida

After being disappointed with the first season, I almost passed up watching season 2. I'm glad I didn't.

Loved the second season. I enjoyed the various storylines, and how they fit together. I loved BB the Polish British copper and hope to see more of him. I liked how the self important intellectual terrorist reaped what he sowed. Hope they will have many more seasons.

I enjoyed this 3 disk series very much. Sometimes it is a little difficult to follow as it goes back and forth from english speaking to french with subtitles. I am glad that after the third disk it comes to a conclusion and does not leave a person waiting for the next series to find out how it all comes to an end. Although it does leave some unanswered questions..... that makes it interesting!

Comments by BritCrimeDramaFan was better than good. Like to add that S2, unlike S1, did not copy the story line from "The Bridge (Danish: Broen; Swedish: Bron)," and that the entire program clearly was a big budget production with a deep complex script, expensive props and realistic stunts.

As good, if not better, than season 1. Violent yes, but involved story with the Tunnel between England & France as it's intersection of intrigue and suspense. The leads-- one British, one French-- deepen their friendship and ability to work together, and their home lives are explored in greater detail. Clémence Poésy is especially good, as she grows, exploring intimacy with another for perhaps the first time. French subtitles disappear too fast, but I'm splitting hairs now.

* Donnez-vous a moi *
* Set aside all fear *

Well, he's not called 'Winnie the Pooh', in French.
-No, I thought perhaps he wasn't. I'm guessing it's not 'Winnie the Shxt' either.
No, Winnie L'Ourson. Winnie the Bear.
===
What type of gun was it?
-Still not sure. But the ballistics guys say it's unusual. Possibly a Norinco 77.
Chinese?
-You know your weaponry! I'm not saying that cos you're a woman or anything.
I didn't think you were.

Tomorrow we were supposed to be tested for our personality types.
-ENFJ. I'd say. A giver. Fun-loving, popular and sensitive. Outstanding people skills.
OK, you're teasing me now.
-Yes, I suppose I am.

Dad, something just fell out of the sky into the sea.
- Maybe it was a shooting star.

What are you, some kind of paparazzi, are you? Gonna put it on 'Lucky Leaks'?

Not that the fat, chain-smoking fxcker had arteries like a Victorian sewer.

Don't do anything. Lie low, wait for orders.
-I don't take orders from anybody now.

Young men that look like boys. Very popular with English ruling class.

You know the secret of a really good intelligence operation? The fact that you don't know is actually the objective.

Do you know the phrase, "Maskirovka"? It means guile and deception. Soldiers in uniforms without insignia. Many battles are won that way.

Nothing will ever change your irritating pedantry or your photographic memory, or the fact that you're an embarrassment in a witness interview, especially with small, frightened children, but... Come on. Of course I still trust you.

Of course I still trust you. God help us.
-Thank you.
You're very welcome.
-You're my best friend. (In interview, she added "May be my only friend, ha! ha!)
===
There's a bigger picture here, Karl!
-Don't tell me, "It involves tough choices." That's the problem with clichés.

Look, I bought you some real books. Hope you like Pablo Neruda.
-I don't read poetry.

Being right about one thing didn't make him right about everything. Both sides do bad things in wars. I just chose the side I thought was the least hypocritical.
-You think this is a war?
It's a series of engagements. The art is knowing when to stop.

GRACIAS A LA VIDA BY MERCEDES SOSA at the end of final episode p2 of 2:
THANKS TO THE LIFE THAT HAS ME SO MUCH
IT HAS GIVEN ME THE STRENGTH TO MY TIRED FEET
WITH THEM I WALKED CITIES AND PUDDLES
BEACHES AND DESSERTS, MOUNTAINS AND PLANES
AND YOUR HOUSE, YOUR STREET AND YOUR COURTYARD

THANKS TO THE LIFE THAT HAS GIVEN ME SO MUCH
I GAVE MY BEATING HEART
WHEN I LOOK THE FRUIT OF THE HUMANE BRAIN
WHEN I LOOK THE GOOD SO FAR FROM THE BAD
WHEN I LOOK INSIDE YOUR CLEAR EYES

THANKS TO THE LIFE THAT HAS GIVEN ME SO MUCH
IT GAVE THE LAUGHTER AND THE CRIYING
SO I CAN DISTINGUISH HAPPINESS FROM SADNESS
BOTH MATERIALS THAT FORMS MY SONG
AND YOUR SONG THAT IS MINE TOO
AND THE SONG OF ALL WHICH IS MY OWN SONG
THANKS TO THE LIFE THAT HAS GIVEN ME SO MUCH
