In my opinion this was the only show that came the closest to real life and how we really are. Not the BS like most.

 It figures.  I don't have cable, but I wanted to see this series... Well, off to Netflix/Amazon/DVD, I guess.  Sigh...

Really compelling show. NY Times did a nice write-up in February.


Excerpt:


Civilians may not be able to gauge the show’s verisimilitude with any certainty, but television watchers can attest that it feels more real than any other cop series at the moment.


This is partly a matter of technique — an expert melding of hand-held camera work and jittery editing to achieve a restless immediacy — and partly a matter of writing. Under the supervision of the executive producers Christopher Chulack and John Wells (who worked together on another show cops profess to like, “Third Watch”), the dialogue is mostly plain-spoken, and the story lines, which give the patrol officers equal time with the detectives, have a carefully constructed appearance of everyday randomness.


Success for the overworked, mostly dedicated characters is not guaranteed, and at times it’s close to illusory, an unusual state of affairs among mainstream crime dramas. The foot pursuits that have become a trademark of the show exact a painful toll of bruises, bloody noses and dangerous wounds. Miraculous coincidences aren’t unheard-of, but neither are they a weekly occurrence.

 wha...wha...what?...why?


Don't worry, I'll be all right.  I'm just gonna crawl back into bed and cry for a bit.


I was saddened that NBS dropped it so quickly but now it happens again.  Well I guess now if I want to continue the coolness I must buy the DVD sets.


Wait...that means I won't get to know if Cooper survived!!!

In an interview that he gave shortly after the finale a few weeks ago, Cudlitz replied to that question thusly: “Do you think Southland can continue without John Cooper?”


I think it probably goes both ways. If the series is really over and isn't picked up by another network, then a fitting end to the show would be the end of Cooper as well. We may never know.


Of course, actors rarely like for their characters to be killed off, so Cudlitz retweeted a random fan's tweet: "By the way -- John Cooper lives!"

mz66, after a write up like that, I will *definitely* have to check it out... Which only makes the cancellation more annoying...
