I have the pilot recorded and will try to get around to watching it sometime in the near future. I'm a big fan of Benjamin McKenzie, the lead actor. Or at least he's portrayed as the lead in the previews.

I was half way through it when I realize that McKenzie was from The O C. He does a good job here. It is more of an ensemble casting type of show.
I liked The Wire, The Shield, much of NYPD Blue and other realistic police shows.

This is in that vein. Production values are high, writing is good. Casting, extras, and lesser parts are superb. Locations are authentic. I hope it holds up. Second episode is tonight.

I have watched both episodes not once but twice. It IS good TV. When I first saw the preview and heard it was produced by the creaters of ER I knew it was going to be good quality. I love the music, the story lines are exciting and I love the way they bleep the curse words...I hope this show is around for a long time and gains in popularity the more episodes that are shown.

Crap and I missed it. But I think they might rerun Southland on Saturday nights so I will go check. I love this show. I love how they start and end each scene and mesh them together.

I love it. I still have to watch the season finale.

Word is that they've bumped it to Friday nights for the fall.

DVR it is!

very good show. I love the sarcastic cop, dont know his name but he is partner to the OC guy, he is such a smart ass. Guy asks him to call him a cab so he shouts out "you're a cab!" Other episode a lady stops and ask him if something was wrong with the road or something like that and he yells at her "a UFO crash landed" total smartass, i love it

I like how they wrote the character,
a cop - who just happens to be gay

Wow i didn't even realize he was gay, though now that you mention it the season finale he was with some guy at the end of the show and i guess that makes sense. Did they reveal that in the show in a previous episode or are you just smarter than i?
