Southland - Season 3
A raw, authentic look at the lives and work of detectives and beat cops in Los Angeles, Southland takes viewers directly to the streets for an intensely personal, first-person look that redefines the police drama. Shot on location in the streets and neighborhoods of Los Angeles, Southland captures a realistic, natural environment where similar situations can and often do occur in real life. In Southland, Regina King stars as Detective Lydia Adams, who seems to make every case personal. Adams has gone through several partners recently, with her most recent being Detective Josie Ochoa (recurring guest star Jenny Gago), a tough, take-charge investigator whose style often conflicts with Lydia. Officer John Cooper (series star Michael Cudlitz) is a seasoned cop who is starting to show some cracks. His partner, Officer Ben Sherman (series star Ben McKenzie) came to him as a rookie, but is now growing up fast on the force. John has taught Ben much of what he knows about how to handle himself on the street, but Ben's growing concern over his partner's addiction to prescription pain killers threatens to drive a wedge between them. Detective Sammy Bryant (series star Shawn Hatosy) is part of the LAPD's gang task force with his partner, Detective Nate Moretta (series regular Kevin Alejandro). Sammy frequently faces issues with his wife, a photographer with past drug problems. Nate, an Army vet, cares deeply about his kids, including a daughter who only recently found out he was her father. Southland's returning cast ensemble also includes: Arija Bareikis as Officer Chickie Brown, and C. Thomas Howell as her recovering-alcoholic partner, Officer Billy Dewey; Michael McGrady as Detective Daniel Salinger, the head of the gang division; and Tom Everett Scott as Russell Clarke, Lydia's former partner who is now working a desk job after being shot.
This season on Southland, Lydia has difficulty adjusting to her mother's return home from Europe with a new boyfriend in tow. The relationship forces Lydia to consider her own life and the fact that she remains a single woman. Meanwhile, Ben continues to come into his own as a cop, but he feels increasing pressure to intervene in John's addiction. And Sammy and his wife face a major life change that could have devastating consequences for their marriage.
Southland - Season 4
From Emmy® Award winners Christopher Chulack (ER) and John Wells (ER) comes a raw and authentic look at a police unit in Los Angeles. From the hills of Hollywood to the streets of East L.A., Southland is an intense, fast-moving drama that takes you inside the lives of cops, criminals, victims and their families.
Last season saw veteran Los Angeles cop John Cooper increasingly dependent on painkillers, jeopardizing his ability to mentor and properly train rookie officer Ben Sherman. Cooper was given an ultimatum: Get help or get turned in. Meanwhile, Detective Lydia Adams, a seasoned officer, finally made steps to advance her oft-left-behind personal life -- but at the cost of losing her partner's trust. And, in a shocking turn of events, gang detective Sammy Bryant was left reeling from the sudden and brutal murder of his partner; after witnessing the birth of his son with his estranged wife, Bryant made the decision to leave the gang taskforce and rejoin the ranks of uniformed cops. As the acclaimed series continues for season four, Bryant and Sherman are partnered together to patrol and protect the streets of L.A., where anything can -- and does -- happen.

Two seasons, each with ten episodes. Four discs. Bonuses confined to deleted scenes.
As ever the series is exhilaratingly out and about. Convincingly the cops never know what to expect. Violent deaths are commonplace, investigators trying to take everything in their stride - this hard to do whenever a child is involved. Often incidents are based on ones that actually occurred - the man on fire racing by, pursued by another with an extinguisher; a naked jogger; domestic disputes noisily conducted in the middle of the road; a customer enraged at the baker's refusal to decorate his little boy's birthday cake with Adolf and a swastika. An additional problem concerns troublemakers goading police beyond endurance so reactions can be recorded on cellphones and instantly appear on the internet.
All the while humour is interwoven with much that is grim.
Taut scripts, credible characters - the main ones (John Cooper, Ben Sherman, Sammy Bryant, Lydia Adams) all to face personal crises. Joining them is Linda Liu as Jessica Tang, survivor of a brutal beating and determined to prove an officer to reckon with. The actors seem to fit their roles like a glove, viewers genuinely caring what happens to them.
Uneasy viewing because out of the blue events can occur that involve instant decisions, a miscalculation perhaps leading to tragedy.
"Southland", more convincing than most, opens our eyes. These are tough times with officers simply trying to do their job. They deserve our respect - as does the series.
You may wonder if you need yet another cop show but trust me Southland is different, the focus on the characters and the way it is filmed adds layers of tension to the show. There are many moments that will shock and feel like a punch in the gut.
Fantastic drama that deserves to find a bigger audience
It seems that the seemingly insurmountable task of creating an original, gritty and plausible cop show has been achieved - great stuff and we can't wait for season four. Thanks to Channel Four for broadcasting this season at silly-o'clock (and without adverts on C4HD); we're thoroughly hooked now and will be buying this season so that we can re-watch the whole show before they hopefully air season four.
