'Southland' on TNT HD - Page 17

post #481 of 553
Thread Starter 
Aww. Loved the ending with Lydia taking a picture of her baby and her via the iPhone. Seems like her baby was too much for her aunt. Then the whole story about her ex and the ex's current partner confronting her.

The ESL shooting at the community center was twisted, I HATE stuff like that. Thankfully it's only on TV.

Sammy and Tammi! eek.gif I need to re-watch that scene and see what exactly happened. I'm sure he put his hands on her, right?

Dewey of course was a hoot. Especially when Coop told him the "nuts joke" at the end. Glad to see Coop joking around as he's always stern and to the point.

Oh, and the mother who lost 3? of her children due to gun violence. The story was taken out of a current events story recently.
'‘Totally lost’: Chicago woman loses fourth child to gun violence'

Sad frown.gif

Good episode though.

I was surprised to realize how relieved I was to have Cooper away from the rooks. I hope they stick with that for the season, I like his new partner - I ain't no boot, let's roll.

Interesting episode last night. Who is Sherman's girlfriend? That's not the teacher from the previous episode, was it? The beginning scene with her legs was hot tongue.gif

I figured Sammy would take a little cash for his personal problems. Sorta reminds me of Dexter's Quinn, taking money and such. IIRC, Sammy has always been on the little "untrusty" side.

Dewey! He was funny during the opening scene at the crime scene. Typical Dewey behavior.

The goat being slaughtered in the bathroom was a little weird. The conversation with Coop and his partner in the the car afterwards was funny. Surely his partner did not buy his lunch, assuming goat, from the house-hold operation eek.gif

We'll see what happens with Lydia and her ex boyfriend. It was nice of him to bring baby supplies to her. He cares.

Edit: No new updates about Sammy and Tami, that's pretty weird. Figured the storyline would carry-on for a while.

It was the teacher from last week

You didn't hear her say she gave him a B?

I figured. I don't think I remember hearing that one line. Thanks for the confirmation though, and boy is he lucky. He always gets the ladies.

Sammy did a get a phone call and told Ben that she hasn't filed any assault charges.

Darn. I'm always slipping up with my postings. People are having to correct me/give me information. I guess some of the dialogue goes through one year and out another. Or I don't remember what was said the morning after tongue.gif

Good episode last night. Thankfully Dewey did not die and Cooper did not damage his back. Back problems are scary as I'm an athlete and have had back pain before. Couldn't imagine being 50 years old (Coop's age?) and having back problems.

I liked the part where Cooper was taking about hurting his back saving the guy in the burning car and then finding out he was taking about Dewey. I eas certainly hoping Dewey would survive. We get a kick outnof him even in his minor role.

As much as I like Southland, I'm getting a bit dizzy with the 15-30 second vignettes before they switch to something else. C'mon guys, slow down a bit and let us enjoy the show!

Yeah, they sure do switch paths quite often. It doesn't bother me, but I understand.
post #492 of 553
I agree above. Dewey is chasing the perp, John is following, next scene John is radioing for help and starting CPR, cut to commercial. Come back and Dewey is in surgery not doing well,. 15 minutes later he is in a Hospital Bed joking with his wife, girls, and John. Could have had a bit more here, imo... Dewey rules... Dewey driving and barking into the Mic was funny..

Southland is still in my wheelhouse. While I agree that they often rush things along, the upside to that is how quickly each show moves and how exciting the whole thing is. I also agree that Dewey is a joy.smile.gif
post #494 of 553
Works great for my TV attention deficit disorder, I don't find myself surfing the web during Southland, would miss too much.
post #495 of 553
I always thought that was part of the appeal.

They don't linger. That way, when they do, like with Regina King in the prison, it makes it that much more effective.

wow, good episode.

Cooper, he is so nice at times. Loved how he stuck with the woman that was under the bus. Then he took care of the aging LEO who was all wasted.

Was interesting how Sammy just quit the car chase. I figured it was because he did not want to die due to him having a child. Thankfully Sammy didn't go-after the crazy guy who ended up dying due to the dog bite. Wasn't expecting the dog to appear eek.gif

Wonder what was up with the bloody guy with the knife that Cooper & partner had to deal with. Guess it was just some guy high on drugs or mentally unstable tongue.gif

Mohawk guy , Sammy thought about jumping that fence & then figured Nah , that guy is getting his justice served swift & early . I loved how he took his time calling animal control & the EMT's , just watching that dog tear out the guys throat .

Cooper was a torn person all episode , he kept putting off his old retired FTO on the phone , he finally goes over & he sees that the guy was looking at eating his gun , all the while he is lonely just like the his old FTO is with no one in his life . Cooper's job is his life & he realized that last week with he thought he had re- injured his back again . Tonights episode reinforced that he is totally alone except for his job & Dewey . Sad that he keeps Dewey at arms length away .

That final scene with King was a bit disturbing. O_o
post #499 of 553
There was a lot that was disturbing in this week's Southland. Cooper is a compelling charter. He is an emotional mess, a closeted homosexual and recovering addict, but he is also a brave and compassionate man. His failure to get to his old training officer's boat until late and discovering that the man had nearly eaten his gun rattled Cooper, for obvious reasons.

I loved the scene late in the show in which Sammy watched the video of his encounter with Tammi. It was deliciously ambiguous. Mostly, it supported what Sammy had told the LAPD investigators but he did briefly touch Tammi's throat before pulling back. Thus, there was no way the video could help him but it could hurt. I fear we have not seen the last of the video.

Five seasons in, I love Southland as much as ever. I hope it gets another one.

Actually I thought the video proved that Tammy's side of the story was correct, he was choking here and had here pinned against a generator. Sammy also told them he left the video camera there on the street, when in fact he took it and had it.

I realize that Sammy lied about the camera but I thought Tammi's wild and out of control attacks precipitated Sammy's pressing her against her car and, briefly, putting a hand on her neck. Before that happened, Tammi struck Sammy in the face with her large and apparently heavy bag and then slapped him. Sammy's reaction was to attempt to control Tammi by turning her around and pressing her against the side of her car. Tammi's boyfriend then called to Sammy, who turned around at which point Tammi once again attacked Sammy by climbing on on his back. Sammy then turned toward Tammi and tried to control her hands. Only then did he briefly touch her neck. There was no indication that he tried to choke her but the mere touching made it ambiguous enough to give a prosecutor or plaintiff's lawyer an opportunity to add to Sammy's misery. If Sammy is smart he will destroy the recording and put the camera someplace where it will never be found. If he did so, it would not strike me as any sort of a moral failing.

The videoed scene of Sammy's altercation with Tammi reminded why I so detest her. She lost control, attacked Sammy twice and now blames the whole thing on him. Sheesh, spare me from addicts!

I'm confused, who were the homeboys in Ben's place there at the end of the show?

that wasn't Ben's place , that is the latino girl's place that he met last week on patrol , she came on to Ben when he was there about her ex harassing her IIRC ,
She has gansta brothers & friends smile.gif

And wasn't it her brother he arrested? I suspect they'll be more to that situation very soon.

That scene was straight out of Training Day.

Cooper's dad is an assh*le. Can't believe he begged him to visit his death bed, only to call him an offensive word for gays. I don't think we (the audience) was supposed to hear what Cooper mumbled to his dad before leaving. Unless Cooper kissed him goodbye, which I doubt.

The ending scene with Coop and his old boss? was touching. Cooper is a nice guy! tongue.gif

Good episode.

I assume we weren't supposed to hear it either. I turned my TV way up, and turned on captions and there still wasn't anything, so I'm guessing it is supposed to be up to our imagination, or maybe they will revisit it again later?

I might have to bug my buddy who works on the show to find out.

I agree that Cooper's response to his father's nasty crack was supposed to be inaudible to us.To be as decent a human being as he is, Cooper, is beset with far more personal devils than he deserves. We have long known that he fought addiction, is a closeted homosexual, and has a pathologically bad back but now we learn that his father is (or maybe was) a monster. That's a hard row to hoe!

I finally watched last week's episode on-line since I had neglected to DVR it for some reason. Wow, what a powerful episode. Gerald McRaney was fabulous as usual!! smile.gif

Great episode last night. Sherman! I don't know what he was thinking eek.gif
Obviously, like he said, he was just trying to protect himself so his statement doesn't come back and bite him. Sending a thug to retrieve the tape was a bad route though. He has to come clean, it's his partner.

Cooper, as usual, is a sweet heart. How he stepped in and finished the commanding officer's morning speech as he was about to break down and cry. It was sad seeing the father cry and break down frown.gif
Then him and his ex-wife! Even though Coop is gay, he would like to start a family with her. He said something like "It won't work romantically but I love you.."

I don't think Lydia did anything about the crooked cops, did she? I wonder if that will be a subject on upcoming episodes but I doubt it.

Was cool to see Shaq have a guest roll, but he was so limited. It was like a 60 second scene.

I sometimes miss the old female LEOs, like Chickie Brown and Jessica Tang.
