THE FUTON'S FIRST LOOK: "SOUTHLAND" (NBC)
The Futon Critic posted the first review for Southland. Read it here (spoilery!) http://www.thefutonc...90401_southlandKristin Eonline Spoiler Chat
Suzanne in Hickory, N.C.: Any scoop on the series finale of one of the greatest shows of all time, ER?
Shane West told E! News, “I do know the punch line for the finale…and it’s something that everybody [should] tune in and watch. They end it very well.” BTW, the pilot for Southland (the time-slot successor to ER), starring Ben McKenzie, is awesome. You will definitely still have something good to watch on NBC at 10 p.m. after ER goes off the air.http://www.eonline.c...l_guest_in.htmlMidseason TV Preview: What Should You Watch?
SOUTHLAND (NBC) - Thursday, April 9, 10 p.m.
Cast: Benjamin McKenzie, Tom Everett Scott, Regina King, Michael Cudlitz, Kevin Alejandro, Arija Bareikis
Ben Sherman (Ben McKenzie) is a rookie cop who’s being shown the ropes by his partner, John Cooper (the great Michael Cudlitz). As he learns about the streets and struggles with a cop’s life in L.A., which includes shooting a man dead on his first shift, the audience learns along with him. As McKenzie says, “This [cop's life] is a way of being. This is a tribe you are entering, and you are going to do it for the rest of your life, or [you are going to] die doing it.”
Verdict: With this cast, a John Wells gritty cop drama in ER’s old time slot is almost an unbeatable proposition.http://www.eonline.c...=rss_topstoriesFrom nbc.com -- Character Profiles

From the show’s website:
BEN MCKENZIE (“Southland”): He was the dreamy one on “The O.C.”! Actually, that may not narrow it down, but I do know he’s handsome. Now he’s starring as a rookie cop on the new series “Southland”… from the creators of “ER”! And he’s such a gentleman! Last time he was here, he brought me some homemade guacamole! (I’ve got my fingers crossed that tortilla chips are next!) He also told about the abandoned pit bull named Oscar that he adopted — and I can’t wait to get an update!http://ellen.warnerbros.com/thisweek/
