We apologize for posting this recap of Southland a day late, but in this age of DVR, we doubt we're the only ones that didn't catch the episode when it aired.
Anyway, it was a solid debut. Any fan of The Shield can't help but scoff as Southland's attempt to come across as gritty - especially the lame way it beeps out curse words - but the cast is quality, the show does look very cool and enough seeds were planted to ensure we'll tune in next week.
How about you? Read our recap of the Southland series premiere now.
