    “Southland”’s in the building! Goodness. That shoot out scene! It came out of nowhere, and as Lou Diamond Phillips’s character was being shot, I thought, “A cop death in the first episode of the new season? That’s ballsy, even for a guest star.” I figured that wasn’t the last we’d see of that shooter guy from when Jessica and John saw him mouthing off at the waitress (and what I might have seen as John cruising that guy there). Ben and Sammy as partners should be fun, and there’s that tension lingering between Ben and John that could be great to explore in coming episodes. John post-rehab should be good, but I hope they don’t make him relapse. Sullen, pain-stricken John was hard to watch last season, even though Michaal Cudlitz made it all work. Lydia’s scenes with the junkie informant were great too. Regina King consistently rocks the house, and that last scene at the ocean was excellent for her. Lucy Liu made a strong first impression, and I thought that she would be all wrong for this show as a cop instead of a detective. The way the group mocked Jessica with all those nicknames and for that videotape was interesting, and then seeing what exactly she’s so famous for around the precinct. The show’s off to a great start so far. The bleeping is still dumb, but you can’t have it all I guess.

    Completely surprised at how well Lucy Liu debuted. I like her, but didn’t feel like this show would be a good fit for her, but she proved me wrong. She and Cudlitz work extremely well together and I’m looking forward to more.

    The first season of Southland is a bit rocky.  Decent still.  But, it gets really good after that.

    I have loved the first two episodes this season.  Really impressed with how Lucy Liu is fitting in. Still loving Regina King.  I like the awkwardness between John and Ben. 

    Really happy the show is back!

    This was a good one to show that ethical gray line that these cops face everyday. I wish that they hadn’t done that usual flashback opening scene, b/c it would have made what happened to the pedophile guy more impactful in the end (though I did like the neighbors’ “I am Spartacus” moment). Sammy and Ben are making a great duo. I wonder if they’re going to resolve the tension that’s lingering between Ben and John any time soon. Lucy Liu’s becoming a great addition to the cast. I’m curious what the show’s plans are for her character. Will they make her a full-time cast member or just an off-and-on guest star? I think something’s going to happen to either her character or Lydia’s partner pretty soon. Things look to be sailing along too easily for the group so far. LoL. But nothing’s going to top the impact of killing off Nate. And I didn’t say this about last week, but it was a great thing to see Marla Gibbs on here reunited with Regina King. They even threw in a Brenda reference!

    Southland has been and continues to be one of the top teir cable dramas, but it’s yet to reach to heights of its forefathers (Homicide, The Shield, NYPD Blue). This is a dependably good show, but it doesn’t take enough risks to be great. Its POV is too simplistic. There’s no ambiguity.

    King has has some nice moments thus far. Wouldn’t mind seeing her get a nod. A series nomination also wouldn’t offend me. It’ll probably end up being more deserving than Boardwalk Empire at the very least.
