    Did anyone catch Southland in the spring? Its season premier is Friday night. There is a story line about a cop who happens to be gay. I like how it was subtly introduced during the first episode and hinted at in subsequent episodes. So far, it's not the main story about the character or the show. Its not about a "gay cop". I can't wait to see how it develops.

    I like Southland. The writing isn't too bad. Not great either. It definitely beats all the crappy CSI and Law & Order spin off shows that are on right now.

    Most cop shows lately won't keep my attention long since they are riddled with every cop show cliche its hard to take them seriously. Southland seems like it is done pretty well.
    Someone always brings this kind of thing up but seeing how this is a gay forum... Ben Mackenzie is really hot. Very, very... you get the picture.

    Yeah, I started watching this show toward the end of the first season; I thought it was a pretty good and am looking forward to a new season. Perhaps the gay officer “John Cooper” will help disprove stereotypes viewers may have about gays.

    Well, I'd like him to disprove the stereotype of needing to be in the closet.


    The show is great, Regina King is good in everything she does! Even the OC guy is good.

    i know im responding to this a lil too late to this one..

    But the first season was so freakin' amazing..then NBC took the show off the air..TNT picked it up but i dont get that network..FINALLY i found a site that has all of second season..THIS SHOW IS AWESOME!!
    Its highly addictive and always gets your adrenaline going..NBC were fools to let this go..Good news is TNT picked it up for another season ..bad news is it starts in Jan. 2011
