SouthLAand: the Complete First Season Uncensored DVD Review

SouthLAand: the Complete First Season Uncensored DVD Review

You can own this DVD season today!

Synopsis: From Emmy Award winners John Wells, Ann Biderman and Chris Chulack comes a raw and authentic look at the police unit in Los Angeles. From the beaches of Malibu to the streets of East LA, "Southland" is a fast-moving drama that will take you inside the lives of cops, criminals, victims and their families.

Review: Its not often that a show jumps networks. It happened to Scrubs from NBC to ABC after that nasty last season with the writer's strike. And now, its happened to Southland. The show made the mistake of debuting on NBC the year before they decided to move forward with their now tragic Jay Leno Show experiment. Now that Leno has effectively trashed network TV and driven primetime viewers to cable tv, the brilliant folks at TNT have opted to pick-up the cop drama.

This is the Uncensored DVD release of the show, assumptively its the same as is airing right now on TNT.  They've added in SIX extra minutes to the pilot alone.  We're talking grittier situations, more language...lets face it any good drama belongs on cable and the freedoms that come along with that.  I'm going to be tuning in for certain.  I've found a great new cop drama to help fill the void that NYPD Blue left in my viewing schedule.  Law and Order is so dry and unoriginal at this point..and I never got into that CSI garbage.  Southland..this is the way that cop shows were meant to be.

I would've rated this a solid 5 out of 5 stars, but since TNT has picked it up and they're adding more episodes to season one, this isn't a complete release.  We do look forward to the inevitable full release later in 2010.

Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars
