Southland Season Three

We know we’re a little late on this, but let’s talk about the Southland finale. We didn’t watch it right away, because we wanted to have one more episode to watch before the break. Southland seasons are short, but sweet. Well, not sweet. Gritty and awful. In a good way. This review is going to be short, because there’s never much to say about this show except “it’s really good.”

The finale had John Cooper finally going to get the help he needs. Ben got him to that point, right before he graduated and got partnered with Sammy. Lydia and her partner’s son were busted, and Mommy is not happy. Sammy got his revenge….sort of. He didn’t shoot the gangster who killed Nate, but he was there to whisper Nate’s name in the guy’s ear as he was dying. Then Sammy had a baby. He named him, what else?, Nate. The hooker was hilarious. The acting was good in the finale. There was closure. There weren’t any cheap things like a cliffhanger. There might also be room for a new character. John Cooper needs another guy…or girl…to train.

Now is a great time to just jump into the fourth season when it airs. Let’s get this well-written, engrossing show the ratings it deserves. It's our favorite cop show ever. If you're not watching it, you're wrong. Southland is probably going to be renewed, and if it is not, we are going to scream and throw things.

Season three grade: A


  1. I'm really, really hoping they make a fourth season!!

  2. Outlook is good! We will be very surprised if it is not renewed.

  3. "If you're not watching it, you're wrong." Ha! Yes! I don't know how, but it's managed to get better and better. It's a show that never really gives you a "dud" episode. If TNT wants to improve its ratings and hopefully keep it around, they should work to promote it HARD during awards seasons. It's the kind of show that people who really get "Friday Night Lights" should be following.

  4. It's the gritty, realistic dramas with good character development that get brushed aside with viewers. They DO need to promote it for awards.
