Seems like an odd gamble for CBS to make... "I guess if that show gets picked up for another year and we happen to like this pilot and want more, we'll just have to recast the lead role!"

Really hate to see this one go but with the way NBC handled it and the severe lack of media attention we were very lucky to get 5 seasons of this great show.

Yeah, I kinda doubt that one will go anywhere. But still... not promising for Southland.

No, I'm officially preparing myself for the end. But tbh, I mostly just feel lucky to have gotten as many seasons as we have. Five seasons is a good run (I've always believed the ideal run for a serialized TV show is 5-7 seasons). It's a shame this show never received the kind of recognition it deserved, but it's got a lot of great company in that respect.

It was a crazy intense episode. Maybe people would take more notice of how great this show is if it aired on FX.

They pushed the limits last night. That was a disturbingly intense episode. The finale next week should be crazy.

Going into this episode I thought "they'll be fine" by the end I was almost rocking back and forth thinking "not Cooper, not Cooper, not Cooper". I don't recall the last time my heart beat so fast from a show.

Yeah, between that and seeing his partner get his brains blown out I think even if the show, by some miracle, got renewed, I could see Cooper resigning. Well, I guess one way or another, the season will probably end with his resignation. That ordeal could definitely put things into perspective for the man.

But man, Ben Sherman is a total a-hole!!! Remember when he was a boot, I never thought he'd turn out to be one of the jerkiest jerks on the show! And now Sam's taking the heat for Strokeface's death, when Ben put him on that path in the first place!

Happy see Tom Everett Scott come back. I felt so bad after he got shot, and it's nice that they've got up with the character.

Sidenote Question: Why'd Sam go from detective to patrolman? I think I missed that.

Yep, that too would certainly do it.

Sam mentioned an episode or two back why, but I can't remember. :/

This week's episode was amazing! Poor Cooper. I agree with those saying that if this show defies all odds and gets renewed, Cooper will retire. I can't imagine him wanting to keep going after that.

And on a side note, Zack Whedon (Joss Whedon's brother) wrote that episode. If this gets canceled, as it most likely will, Joss, Jed & Mo would be stupid not to try and bring him onto the SHIELD writing team.

The door was left open but if TNT does cancel the show, it's easy to figure out the fate of the centerpiece character of the show. How that guy was never nominated for a single award is unexplainable.

I guess if it does end here. I'd be ok with that finish. Yeah, it's depressing as hell at
Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
his final choice in life but he would never be able to serve on the LAPD in the same capacity after that incident. There were questions by the department to his mental well being as it was already. It would come off as unrealistic for a show that's sole purpose is to be as gritty and real as possible.


One of the top dramas of the past 5 years - easily.

Poor Cooper. . I wish they could do at least one more season so a couple of characters could get some redemption but either way a great series.

It does seem like they tried to give some sort of ending to all the characters, while leaving things open. Lydia re-connecting with her old partner and the implication that a romance might be blossoming, Ben and Sam's partnership ending in the worst possible way, not to mention Ben's arc from when he was a naive boot to an experienced patrolman who's clearly on a path to being your textbook example of a dirty LAPD cop, and Cooper, poor Cooper. One way or another, it was clear that he couldn't stay a cop. He's seen too much, and it's cost him even more in terms of his personal life.

If it has to end, I think I'll be alright with it ending the way it did. Kind of reminds me of the end of Brooklyn's Finest.
