Southland proves itself as one of the all time great cop shows
on 21 August 2013
The first two seasons of Southland are pretty good but it is when the series hits Season 3 onwards that it shows what it is a capable of. By narrowing the focus of the stories to some key characters the series shines. Regina King as Detective Lydia Adams and Michael Cudlitz as John Cooper are the highlights acting wise. Lucy Liu also has a great guest arc in S4 in one of the best plots Southland has done.
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
