This season showed Southland at its best. I thought it was in a class with NYPD Blue at its best and I have no higher compliment for a police procedural. There were so many great moments, most of which have been discussed by earlier posters, that I won't discuss them further here. Just let me finish by saying that Southland, along with Justified, has been the high point of my television week lately. Obviously, I really, really hope Southland is renewed.
