Southland is full of raw human emotion on both the parts of the officers and criminals it's so believable it keeps you wanting more and more.
Put your seat belts on, Southland is BACK!
Forget the bad reviews and put-downs - Southland is THE cop show to watch. This is the way it's done! The Ensemble Cast is back and Southland shows you have it is done right from beginning to end. OK, forget that - this is not a Cop Show. This is a show about Cops, and one of the best ever made.
I was privileged to see episode 3x01 through an advanced copy from TNT and I can tell you - Southland IS BACK, better than ever. From the first 30 seconds that had me on the edge of my seat to the final 30 seconds that had my jaw dropping to the floor, I was riveted the entire episode.
Gone is the limitations of the broadcast network, while the best of SL is still here - and then some. Amazing writing, directing and producing, for the first time ever made directly for TNT. No more worries about being "too gritty" or "too dark", Southland can finally be made as it was originally intended, with way less annoying bleeps and cuts to avoid offending those with sensitive ears. Yes, there are a few bleeps (darn those censors) but it only lends authenticity to the show - after all, this is the way real LAPD officers talk.
Also, forget about what you have have read on Wikipedia or from critics. All the major cast is back, albeit on limited episodes from some of their parts due to budgetary constrains. The Primary 6, though, are here to stay (for now at least!) - Officers Cooper & Sherman on patrol, Homicide Detective Lydia Adams with her latest partner Josie Ochoa (played brilliantly by Jenny Gago) and Gang Detectives Sammy Bryant & Nate Moretta with their surly supervisor Detective D3 Daniel "Sal" Salinger (Michael McGrady). Lydia's first partner Russell Clarke (Tom Everett Scott) makes appearances throughout the season.
While there is, as always, some dramatic license taken to keep the drama going (as there always is in any television show) authenticity is still the primary watch word. Technical Advisor Chic Daniel (retired LAPD and SWAT) and his wife are ever vigilant in ensuring that the actors do everything the proper LAPD way whenever they can without interfering with the script. Yes, folks, those are REAL guns, Kevlar vests, tasers and other equipment you see them wearing on the show! Those tactics they use? Straight from the LAPD.
Southland Returns to TNT on January 4 and will be available online 4-5 days after it airs, but do yourself a favor and buy the season here. You will be glad you did!
The most original cop show out there
Simply put, Southland is as real as any scripted show can get. It doesn't focus on melodrama like some current crime shows, or even have a nicely wrapped up case of the week. The characters talk like real cops, and they deal with their issues like real people. Unlike some crime dramas on air that strive for the melodrama, Southland hooks the viewer because of its realism and grittiness. If you have never seen Southland, I strongly suggest giving it a chance..
