This week Tang (Lucy Liu) has a really bad day on TNT’s fantastic cop series “Southland”. After being served with divorce papers she is pissed off and determined to make everyone as miserable as she is. First by giving a guy a ticket when waiting for his wife with a broken leg and then by shooting a teen with a “toy gun”. This causes some tension with her partner Cooper who realizes that she tampered with the toy gun. Cooper is so disturbed by the whole thing that he has to see his sponsor. Meanwhile, Sammy is still pissed at Ben for questioning his integrety and isn’t ready to forgive him even though he stops a deranged, broken bottle wielding, rape victim from stabbing him. Really hope the two off them can work things out beacuse the comrodery they had was a fun aspect of the show. Lydia is not ready to let anyone know she is pregnant even though they all suspect it. Her partner Robinson (Dorian Missick) is actually starting to grow on me. It is nice to see Lydia have the same partner for more than a few episodes. It’s nice to see that he still has her back even though she wont come clean to him about the pregnancy. “Southland” airs Tuesday’s 10pm on TNT, I for one have my DVR set to record.
