Editorial Reviews

The TV-cop genre continues to be well served by Southland, released here with three complete seasons, a total of 26 episodes plus bonus features, on six discs (the second season had previously been released separately). The core elements remain from the first season; this was and is a gritty, sometimes graphic, often violent, and frequently profane (especially in these uncensored versions) look at the personal and professional lives of the cops and detectives who work the streets of Los Angeles. But these second, third, and fourth seasons find the series continuing to refine its style, with details like the brief teasers at the top of episodes that offer glimpses of scenes later played out in full. And while it still features a sizable ensemble of actors, the focus is increasingly on just four or five: Detective Lydia Adams (Regina King), who seems to have a new partner every week while her original sidekick (Tom Everett Scott) recovers from being shot in season one; Detective Sammy Bryant (Shawn Hatosy), whose domestic problems are sometimes more distracting than those he encounters on the job, although the latter are not inconsiderable either; Officers Ben Sherman (Ben McKenzie), who's nearing the end of his rookie probation period, and John Cooper (Michael Cudlitz), Sherman's partner and tough love training officer, whose chronic back pain has resulted in a dependence on painkillers; and, in season four, Officer Jessica Tang (Lucy Liu), Cooper's new partner, who has an eye on a promotion to sergeant. Storylines abound, most of them involving drugs, gangs, murders, and similarly grim goings-on; some are resolved within a single episode, while several others (like Sammy's tumultuous marriage and impending fatherhood, the death of a major character and its aftereffects, Adams's suspension after photos of a sensational celebrity murder scene are leaked from her cell phone, or Cooper's addiction) continue over the course of one or more seasons. The tone is fairly realistic. There's no glamour here--these are imperfect people who make mistakes, sometimes while simply trying to help those unable to help themselves--and no CSI-style beauty shots. But there's plenty of conflict, lots of action (more than the average cop encounters, but hey, this is TV), and, over the course of more than two dozen episodes, more than enough compelling content to keep viewers coming back for more. Extras include unaired scenes, a couple of featurettes, and more. --Sam Graham

Product Description

The Southland is Los Angeles: sandy beaches Bel-Air mansions gangbangers and drug deals gone wrong. It's where the rookies and veterans of a stand-up LAPD unit see all the violence and fear a big city can breed and struggle to make a difference. This 6-Disc Set contains all 26 explosive Season Two Three and Four Episodes of the gripping lightning-paced series about the men and women who live their lives on a jagged edge taking on criminals victims and a sprawling city tainted by vice and seething with danger. Sometimes the cops triumph. Sometimes they fail. And sometimes the poison they live with on the job comes home with them. Police action hits hard in Southland.

5.0 out of 5 stars it's great -- and look at the bright side! February 1, 2013
This show is fantastic and for all the reasons others have said.
Now with regards to packaging all 3 seasons 2,3,4 in one set,
yes our first impression is that those of us who bought season 2
are not happy with buying it again. And after waiting years for
season 3, why can't we buy it separately?

But there is another way to look at it. The first is price:
at $40, this is actually less than the price of buying both season 1 and 2.
So, we are getting an entire season for no additional charge.
Furthermore, as opposed to the DVD-R manufactured on demand character
for season 2, Warner is actually treating the series with the respect
it deserves by producing 2,3,4 in the normal way -- which, important to me,
means that it has subtitles both in English and French. (Part of the appreciated
gritty realism of the show is the on-location shooting, which loses some of the
dialog for me -- so, I want the English subtitles.) So, actually, we are not
buying the same season 2 -- we are buying a season 2 with subtitles.

So, there is a bright side to this -- and let's buy and support this show so that
we can get more new seasons out of the powers that be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Southland Season 2, 3 and 4 review December 27, 2012
Verified Purchase
This tv show is the most realistic take on an LAPD officer's daily life. The style is real and gritty. The action has a specific pace that feels real. The acting is superb! The amount of episodes are small per season, but thats what makes it worth-while! Too many episodes can make a series boring, this show keeps your interest whole. If I had to pick a favorite season, it would be season 3. If you have seen the movie End of Watch, you are not seeing a realistic take on LAPD. This is where you will find it! This is The Wire's side-kick!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gritty, Realistic, Thrill Ride January 8, 2013
Southland is one of the best cop shows ever to air. It's got that immediate sense of danger that comes from hand-held camera work and well-executed, fast-paced action (it's not all frenetic, head-achy camera work, though; it's used to good effect). The plots are intelligent and at times surprising and even brutal. The characters are well-developed, and their personalities, back-stories and situations will stay with you, even haunt you the way certain characters or scenes from The Shield were able to, which is probably the show I would most compare it to, though Southland is not about the anti-hero. It is similar in that it is one of the only shows that will leave you bolt-upright and riding an adrenaline rush right up to that last second--and then you can't believe you have to wait for next week (or next season) for the next episode. I think Sons of Anarchy is the only other show currently airing that has this effect to this degree. Again, though, Southland is not about the anti-hero; so it's not like Sons in that way at all. The cops are heroes on this show, well revered, if completely human and at times very flawed. This show seems to me to be a kind of a cross between the cop-centric, officer-on-the-beat episodes of Third Watch with the grittiness of the Shield. What a wild ride all of these seasons in one set would be. If you haven't seen this show before, I envy you the experience coming your way. Please note that this show has "seasons" on par with the average BBC show in length, which means that with three full seasons of Southland included in this set, you will still only get 26 episodes. So, consider it a single season's worth of shows (well, maybe a season from like the 80's, when networks actually still made 26-episode seasons). Read more ›

It is a shame that Southland is wrapping up after only five seasons. We thought the series was well written and gave us a realistic view of the lives of police folk in these circumstances. Indeed it encourages us to see that police officers and detectives are also human and have to deal with the horrors every day and not just on occasion.

Southland is an exceptional real-life police drama, or as real as a Hollywood account can be. It's edgy and focuses of character development and storyline more than typical action dramas. Granted, there is action, and each episode has a twist, but it complements the story and the characters rather than taking its place. I can’t rate this police drama high enough – it’s excellent…you won’t be disappointed. 5 stars. However, this compilation disk set is made in very low quality. Colors are very dark, even hard to see shadowed faces at times, and sound lower quality as well. When got to the end of Season 1 pirating literature in all Asian languages typical to cheap pirated disks I have been handed down in the past. The first set I bought from on on-line retailer I returned hoping they got a bad pirated batch. Bought the same thing from Amazon and same quality issues. TNT must have farmed out the disk manufacture to a poor quality source. Again, excellent show, and worth watching, just be aware of below expectations DVD quality. Therefore rate 3 stars overall.
