The gritty and raw drama “Southland”, about Los Angeles police officers is back for its fourth season. This show has gone through the wringer being canceled from NBC and having a constantly rotating cast. Still the show is authentic with intriguing characters that are likable even though they are deeply flawed. For season four Lucy Liu and Lou Diamond Phillips have joined the cast and it looks like their characters aren’t going to make thing easy for the returning Ben McKenzie (Ben Sherman) and Michael Cudlitz (John Cooper). Regina King is also back and its no surprise to fans that she once again has a new partner. Shaw Hasoty returns as Sammy Bryant who is no longer a Detective and now a father. Hasoty is fantastic in this series and his characters arc is one of the best on TV in recent years. C. Thomas Howell also really shines in this series and brings much appreciated humor to this intense, heart pounding show. If you are a fan of shows like “The Shield” and “The Wire” then you really need to check out this action packed series! “Southland” airs on TNT Tuesdays at 10pm, I for one have my DVR set to record.
