    You have plain old smashmouth elemental TV story devices--good guys, bad guys, evil corporations, a family unit, and a headlong rush toward the Truth, whatever that may be. Plus this special bonus: Intimations of Jack Bauer.

    This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. What a wild concept, Southland plays an awesome father; who helps the son connect the dots.
    Keeps you on your toes because nothing is for certain.
    My only complaint I have for this show is that they killed off the mother of the daughter. Before they rekindle there relationship.

    I really hope this program makes it to another season. It has everything I want from a show, which is mainly an interesting concept. I am so tired of all the same old recycled shows being produced. The acting is superb and I truly buy into the whole plot. Some people might find it a slow burner but I think if you gave it a chance you will become absorbed. Full Review »

    Beautiful, just be beautiful. No show on TV matches the awe and amazement that Touch brings every single episode. I give it five stars for it's amazing story and plot, which is unrivaled, even by The Walking Dead. Full Review »
