I recently noticed, that the series The Bridge (2011), The Tunnel (2013) and Pagan Peak (2018) begin very similar. Is that just a coincidence?
Similarities I noticed:
- the title, duh;
- a dead body is found on the border between two countries (literally half the body is in eg. germany, the other in austria);
- both countries send detectives, of which one is a woman, and one is a man;
- within the first couple of sentences, one side says "I'm in charge", and the other side agrees and leaves the scene without arguments;
- in The Bridge and The Tunnel both bodies happen to have belonged to politicians.
