This show started with such promise last season. However now, it's just a cesspool of perverted life styles; attempting to shape social consciousness. It's time to cancel this show. If this is the best quality programming that cable can provide you should cancel your subscription.
The writers have been through this territory for 4 seasons now, so it's hard to imagine a lot of new ground for a 5th. But sure enough, they're back at it again. There's a number of internal conflicts between partners that are featured, and the writing remains compelling. The episode is primarily a set up for the new season, which are rarely the best episodes of any season of any show. But they've still got it.
A little too much whining and bickering, not just from Lydia, but from allegedly grown men as well, but this is still a very entertaining show. A little too much fighting as well, as I doubt one department deals with this on a daily basis, but it is captivating, no one can deny that about Southland.
