    After watching Southland for four seasons now, i can't understand the hype anymore. It seems like the show has lost it's real, gritty feel. The thing that worked so well for Southland in it's freshmen and sophomore seasons was that it separated itself from your typical cop drama. Now, I can't help but feel like its the same as everything else in its genre.

    It's a reliably engrossing hour of television, capable of switching gears from relaxed banter to shocking violence in a split second.

    It's the most engrossing cop series since season one of NBC's Homicide, and maybe the most raggedy and real.

    Like "Justified," it's impossible to point to one element as the primary reason it works so well.
