Anyone else here watch Southland? I only checked it out because I'm a huge Regina King fan. They started their second season on TNT and though it's much more exciting than the first season, it's still not catching base with me. I can't remember any of the character's names except Regina King and her partner in the hospital!
I think Southland tries too hard to be realistic that it's confusing. You need a darn book to keep up with the characters! Oh yeah, I know Dickie's name too. But that show leaves me breathless. There are too many characters and too many things going on in one show!
I read TNT plans to cancel it again if these ratings for this season aren't good. They say the show is way too expensive to keep on. That's why NBC dropped it.
Newsflash, get rid of about half the cast and it won't be expensive! They got about twenty people on that show and they all have their own plots every episode!
Anyway, I had to vent. I want to like this show but I can't get into it and I've watched the whole first season! Others say they love it, maybe it's just me.
