    I think this is the first Southland episode of the year that I just did not like. It was too slow-moving, something I have not been able to say all season, and it just did not give me a reason to care about any of the storylines, especially the one that had Ben snapping at the end. You can't win them all, but none of the cases appealed to me tonight.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • At the beginning and end of this episode Officer Ben Sherman is running both his bloodied hands under the water, and his hands were supposedly bloodied while he was beating up the pimp. However, Ben never throws a single punch with his left hand during the actual beating; every punch is with his right hand.

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Ben: (flipping through the new manual and reading to Sammy) "When you hear the phrase 'scout leader' what comes to mind? If you answered 'pedophile' you're a burnt-out cop." Book's outdated. "Coach" is a better phrase.

    • Opening Voiceover: Cops are often asked if they believe they're doing God's work. Officer Ben Sherman is just trying to do the job without losing his soul.
