Southland kicked off it's second season (first season on TNT) on Tuesday and I'm once again surprised this show isn't getting more notice. Essentially its a story about a group of LA cops. A pair of patrolmen, a pair of detectives, and a pair of homicide detectives. Each of the cops has something "wrong" in their lives ranging from pain killer addiction to having a bat shit crazy wife. Ben McKenzie of The OC fame is one of the main characters and the guy has acting chops. Michael Cudlitz plays his partner in the show and he's also very very good in the "supervising officer" roll. The show reminds me of the early days of NYPD Blue and is a refreshing change from the gone to shit CSI, SVU, and other cop dramas.
