Wonderfully written compelling drama,
This review is from: Southland - Season 1-2 [DVD]  (DVD)
Southland is beautifully observed, well written and acted drama. The subleties in the characters, their flaws and personalities, are what makes the drama work and what drives the show. It manages to be moving, humourous and shocking all within one episode. Complex characters such as John Cooper are rare in tv series and the show should be commended for sticking to an understated portrayal of the various cops on the force. Would recommend this without reservation, each series goes from strength to strength and season 3 is also wonderful. Probably one of the best written shows in the last 2 years, long may it continue.
