Southland the Complete Third Season Uncensored
The hit TV
series Southland arrives on DVD with Southland the Complete
Third Season Uncensored and returns viewers to the gritty streets of
Los Angeles. For those not familiar with Southland, it follows
the lives and families of LAPD officers but unlike more mainstream
police dramas, Southland is quite realistic in the way the
characters are portrayed and the visuals which creates this raw
experience that really draws you into the storylines.
This DVD set
features all 10 episodes from Season 3 which runs at a whopping 403
minutes of realistic police drama. However to compliment the gritty
storylines of Southland, the actors are the real star of the series,
especially Regina King who plays Detective Lydia Adams and Shawn Hatosy
who plays this great detective with heart.
episode of Season 3 revolves around Lydia who is a little unsure of her
new partner Detective Josie Ochoa (Jenny Gago) who together must put
their differences aside in order to hunt a serial rapist. However as the
series progresses, both Detective Adams and Ochoa are brought into some
much more violent cases such as deadly drug dealers and murderers.
powerful story of Season 3 is episode 7 entitled Sideways which
has Lydia befriending a dying man in a shootout that really crosses the
boundaries of her role as a police officer. It's this realism that makes
Southland such a treat to watch.
said, the stories of Southland are quite gruesome at times and this
series is not for the faint hearted. The series ends with the episode
called Graduation that sees Sammy (Shawn Hatosy) teaming up with a new
partner that questions his role in the police force, especially with the
violence around him and when his son is born, he asks to be transferred
in order to support and train the new recruits. The final episode is a
great bookend for the series.
minutes, there is so much content crammed into Southland the Complete
Third Season that a second viewing is almost in contention. As you
are drawn into the world of these police officers, even their home lives
are effected by the world that they live in which makes the series very
compelling to the viewer.
Audio & Special Features
On DVD, the
video quality is extremely sharp and almost jumps out of the screen.
Audio supports Dolby Digital 5.1 and really lends itself well to the
action. Last but not least there are a handful of additional scenes and
bonuses to give the Southland fan another sneak peak into the working
minds of Southland itself.
brilliant series and even if you have missed season 1 and 2, most
viewers should have no issues in picking up season 3 and running with
it. Recommended to all lovers of high quality police dramas!
