Product Description

Southland: The Complete First Season

Amazon.com

TNT strikes gold again with Southland, a worthy addition to a lineup of cop dramas that already boasts such superior fare as Saving Grace and The Closer. While this show (offered here on two discs with all seven episodes from its first season) may not accomplish its producers' goal of "redefining" the genre, they have certainly succeeded in creating an alternative to procedurals like CSI and Law & Order by focusing less on the details of the crimes being investigated than on the professional and personal lives of those doing that work, specifically the uniformed officers who patrol the streets of Los Angeles and the plainclothes detectives dealing with murders, kidnappings, and other major offenses. Each episode features multiple story lines; most are well done, but those involving the "uniforms" tend to be more compelling. For them, every day is like "driving through the sewer in a glass-bottom boat," as one puts it, as they encounter everything from car theft and domestic disputes to rotting corpses and the usual array of junkies and prostitutes. A variety of cops are featured--C. Thomas Howell is good as the off-the-hinges Billy Dewey, but most involving is the relationship between Ben Sherman (Benjamin McKenzie), a rookie fresh out of the academy, and his partner John Copper (Michael Cudlitz), a more seasoned officer who gives the younger man (who also happens to be a rich kid from Beverly Hills) heavy doses of grief until the sharpshooting Sherman earns his respect. Most episodes are gritty and fairly graphic, the uncensored versions featuring the liberal use of F-bombs and other profanity. The writing, much of it by creator Ann Biderman, is excellent, with juicy dialogue, well-developed plots (like an ongoing story involving the detectives' efforts to protect a young girl who witnessed a murder), plenty of black humor, and characters you can care about. A making-of featurette is the sole bonus feature. --Sam Graham

5.0 out of 5 stars Great show! September 18, 2009
Format:DVD
I am truly shocked that no one else has written a review for this show. It is.. in a word.. AMAZING! The characters are believable. The stories are true to life. This show exposes a realistic view of Los Angeles, from the unsavory (and savory) people to the corrupt (and uncorrupt) police to the fearful residents to the vigilantes. This show really has it all! Find a way to relate... or just shut up. Because whether you want to admit it or not, you have been in at least one situation that is true to life that appears on this magnificent show.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome show October 11, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is an amazing show, real, gritty, true to life. Sadly, NBC has decided to cancel the 2nd season which was due to start airing 10/23. 6 episodes are already filmed and ready for airing. NBC has given conflicting reasons for canceling. Please, email NBC, Warner Brothers, anyone you can think of to save this wonderful show. Hopefully another network will pick it up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Show April 6, 2010
By A. Chan
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The first season was great, unfortunately it was cut short, the second season just finished, again great season. I really hope TNT renews this for a 3rd season. It seems each season thus far has been too short. With all the action/drama that goes on I look forward to getting more. I've already watched this 1st season a few times through, the extended scenes are a nice touch, although they usually don't explain anything extra. Actors are great and seem to really fit their roles. Everything is filmed to give you a more "real" experience. ( IE. the camera man actually runs with the actors, sometimes the view is grainy like a home video camera, etc..) Supposedly the stories are based all on real events, some funny, some dramatic. Great series and I hope it continues on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Where Homicide: Life on the Streets Left off February 1, 2010
Format:DVD
Southland & Homicide have alot in common as far as Deep edgy Cop Dramas That take a Much more realistic look behind The men and woman
That put there lives on the Line to Serve & Protect

Both Shows have An Amazing ensemble cast (Perfect Casting!!!!!!!!)
Both Shows Introduced viewers through the eyes of the Rookie Cop
With Homicide Det. Tim Bayliss played Perfectly by Kyle Secor
and Southland Officer Ben Sherman played equally Great by Ben McKenzie

Enough of me Geeking out over Great Top Notch Cop Shows

Despite all the Positive reviews from both Critics and TV Viewers The Show was Canceled due to the NBC Late Night Re-Tooling
Jay Leno in Prime Time (Boy, that was such a Great Idea!?!?!)

But, out of Nowhere TNT Bought the Show Thank God
Southland never seem to fit on Network tv (It was To Dark and Raw)
The original broadcast on NBC was Butchered..........
With TNT alot less bleeps But, Now with the Season One Box Set it's UNCUT
Hopefully if it sells enough Units it will get a BR Transfer
Believe the Hype and all the Critics
10/10

4.0 out of 5 stars An Above Average Police Drama January 5, 2011
Format:DVD
This is a phenomenal show for fans of stuff like The Wire or The Shield. Though season one isn't on par with either of those shows, it showed a lot of potential for greatness and had more than its share of very memorable moments. It also boasts one of the flashiest documentary-style looks of any drama on television, which doesn't sound like a big deal but really gives the show a unique visual appeal. Season one is full of great episodes and you can read my full review of the first episode of the new second season here: [...]
