Summary of "The Complete 5th & Final Season - So long, Southland": As I said before, I'm really bummed that this show was canceled. The people behind it worked hard to deliver a realistic view of policing, and I appreciated it for the realism. I didn't mind that cast members came and went, and sometimes came back again. Though the cast got smaller as the show went on, it seemed to happen in a realistic way, and one that didn't disrupt the core of the show. Now I have to find a new "favorite cop show" on TV.
While the DVDs for the show were never outstanding, often skimping on the bonus material, I was happy to see Warner Bros supporting the show. These five seasons, in three sets, will always sit proudly on my shelf.
Summary of "The Complete 2nd, 3rd & 4th Seasons - Three seasons, one set": Wow, I love this show. Everyone that's read this site for a few years knows that I dig cop shows, but this one is excellent. I really like that they focus on general police work, from the mundane calls to murders, following both the street cops and the detectives. I also like that they pay attention to details of police work, like carrying a container of Vicks to a dead body call (I've experienced this on a ride-a-long - the Vicks is needed, and almost all cops carry it). I love that the show has a massive number of supporting characters as well. There were numerous times that a character came and went from the episodes, and as a viewer we're given a sense that this is a real police force. So many shows have their leads, and then the guest star, and that's it; the background is populated by people that don't matter, and are never given lines.
I hope this set sells well enough for Warner to continue releasing it on DVD (yearly). It's an excellent show, and while this DVD set is light on extras, it's nice to see Warner Bros decided to release it for the fans. (read entire review)
