Woot! Love the show.
Awesome. I just love this show.
Just 10 eps??? Such an awesome show
Seasons 3 & 4 were also 10 episodes.
That's good news... but I don't want to wait that long.
Well ok then I stand/sit corrected
Can't believe its made it to S5..its gone by so fast.
Season 1 was only 7 episodes. Season 2 was pieced together from footage already filmed before NBC cancelled it; I don't know how many episodes had actually been scripted.
I too wish it would be longer than 10 episodes per season.
I dont, because when it a short and tight season the writers are force to something that very few of the writers seem to be able to do and that is write a story line.
This right here.
I love this show.
I don't think a 13 episode season would detract from that. 10 is just too short. Just as things are starting to get rolling, it's over.
Soap operas have c. 250 episodes per season, and they have story lines...
Rob, your comparing the writing of Southland to General Hospital. I am a fan of GH but GH is no Southland.
Of course not. But you were implying that shows with more than 10 episodes per season don't have story lines. Which is so silly, I just assume you meant something altogether different.
I was not impressed with the writing of the post-NBC episodes, especially this last season. I was disappointed that the writers started including typical cop-show cliches like overcompensating female cop (Jessica Tang) and former good cop takes law into his own hands (Ben Sherman). You could almost see their boredom as they got near the end of the season, and the season finale just didn't have the punch I expected.
While the pieced-together Season 2 didn't make any sense overall, at least the individual episodes had skilled writing. If it takes 13 or more episodes per season to get that kind of quality scripting from the writers, so be it.
