    On a related note, does anyone wonder if they had written dialogue that would have to be bleeped on ahead of time and on purpose so that they could have that as a selling point for the season on DVD as it seems to be?

    Yes they do have written dialogue that would have to be bleeped, but I think its for realism and not for DVD promotion/selling point. I personally don't really like the bleeps, it doesn't add anything.Unfortunately TNT (as well as NBC) doesn't allow foul language so I'll just have to live with it. Personally I think the show would be better on HBO.

    But heck look at me complaining. Bleeps or no bleeps I'm just really, really happy TNT picked it up. It has some really interesting characters (Michael Cudlitz from Band of Brothers), a good story but the main factor would be the use of camera style. Makes it feel more realistic. Ill be watching.

    Amaury Nolasco quit the show in September 2009 after completing three episodes. He was replaced by Clifton Collins Jr., who plays Det. Ray Suarez, and is credited with star billing. This article provides additional information: Clifton Collins Jr. Replaces Amaury Nolasco on "Southland"

    I agree - I hope they receive additional nominations from other award shows.

    Here's a nice interview with Michael & Ben on MovieWeb. I didn't see any major spoilers, but spoilers might be there for anyone who doesn't follow the show as closely as I do.
