Again, wowee. There's gotta be a next season the way this one ended.
We may think there should be a next season, but it hasn't been announced yet.
I know and I'm sure it'll bug me until next year when the new season should start.
Well, I won't hold my breath for a pickup based on this Deadline Hollywood story:
But the season finale would make an ok ending for the show.
TNT made the announcement today:
I truly hate this news, this stinks... Please NetFlix pick this series up and show it un-edited like it was intended.
I don't like it either. But I'd rather it end on an up swing then a down.
What bugs me is I thought of Southland as a sort of a special show, and by that I mean there really was nothing quite like it. Sure, it was derivative of Cops, but if you are going to take Cops and script it, who could have ever done this better? I felt like Southland stretched the envelope quite a bit in a medium that is severely derivative, which is something TV needs a lot more of, rather than less of.
And really, there was nothing quite like it. If you think of the procedurals that seem to be the most realistic, Homicide, Prime Suspect, and Detroit 187 are the ones that come to mind, but even though all of those were really great cop shows, they did not have mass appeal enough to get decent ratings and survive, and none of them were as far out there as Southland was, which sort of puts it in a league of its own, even if it might not have been anyone's favorite show. About the only other show that could possibly fit in that league would be The Shield.
So, RIP, Southland, you will be missed.
The only positive here is that it was so dramatic that it was hard to watch; identifying with what these characters went through was never easy.
Well that sucks a fat one. They say "We are enormously proud of Southland, which stands as one of the best police dramas ever made" yet they cancel it anyway. That makes no sense whatsoever. Netflix picking it up would be nice but I'm not holding my breath. Maybe someone else will. TNT picked it up after NBC dropped so it so who knows.
In my top 5 shows. Sucks.
Rats. Probably my favorite current show. D*'s Audience would be a nice home for it ...
This sucks. They should come back and do a two hour final wrap up.
I have a buddy who worked as a location scout on the show. As far as he knows right now it is not going to be shopped around, so I'm sad to say that it looks like that was the end.
I was glad
the writers killed off the partner because so many shows refuse to kill regular characters. That episode was amazing television.
The hole series was amazing television. IMO
One of my all time Favorite Police shows
