Southland Finale: Is This the Show's Last Ride?

Shawn Hatosy, Ben McKenzie

On Wednesday's Southland (series?) finale, the entire Los Angeles Police Department will be fighting for one of their own.

This season's harrowing penultimate episode saw John Cooper (Michael Cudlitz) and his partner Henry Lucero (Anthony Ruvivar) kidnapped by drug addicts. By the end of the hour, Lucero was dead and Cooper only escaped after playing dead in a grave he'd dug for himself. Wednesday's episode (10/9c, TNT) picks up about three weeks later, and while John still hasn't been cleared to carry a gun and return to active duty, the rest of the force, including detetcives Adams (Regina King) and Robinson (Dorian Missick) are searching for the tweakers. "Cops don't go missing all the time, so when they do, it's a huge deal," Cudlitz tells TVGuide.com... read more

Southland's Back on the Beat — And This Time It's Personal

Ben McKenzie, Shawn Hatosy

Despite the gritty realism of its on-the-street look at the Los Angeles Police Department, Southland has always been more about the cops than the cases they work. In Season 5, which premieres Wednesday at 10/9c on TNT, the show takes its character-driven focus even further.

"This season is going to deal a lot more with all of our personal demons and putting them to bed or the inability to put them to bed," Michael Cudlitz tells TVGuide.com. "There are issues that have always been there, but now they're getting magnified. ... You're going to see a lot of what makes these people tick and what makes them explode."

Winter TV Preview: Get scoop on your favorite returning shows

The new season finds Officer John Cooper (Cudlitz) returning to his role as a training officer only to be disgusted by his rookie's jaded view of the world. But it's the complications between John and the other man in his life — a long-term lover viewers are just now meeting — that will threaten John's hard-fought sobriety. Elsewhere, Detective Lydia Adams (Regina King) struggles with balancing her work with her new baby, and Officers Ben Sherman (Ben McKenzie) and Sammy Bryant (Shawn Hatosy) carry on a tense partnership that's been broken since Ben shot a pimp (possibly for reasons that go beyond heroic bravery).

Keck's Exclusive: Video Preview of The Cape's Deadly Series Finale

David Lyons and Mena Suvari

Several months ago, The Cape's creator, Tom Wheeler, clued me in that he planned to kill off a series regular in his first season finale. Then ratings fell, NBC cut the show order from 13 to 10 episodes, and now the season finale appears to be the series finale. But for those loyal Cape fans out there, there will still be a significant death before the Cape hangs it up for good.

The concluding chapter will be available for viewing at http://www.nbc.com/the-cape/ beginning at midnight tonight, Friday, March 11.

March 23, 2007: Slings and Arrows

I am so happy this show is back on the air. I can remember when it aired after Grey’s Anatomy. Then Men in Trees took over that spot, and October Road is currently living there. All I can say is, I’m glad Six Degrees is back because I missed it. I’m happy to watch it whenever and wherever ABC wants to air it.If anyone is new to the show, you probably have questions. I’m going to try to summarize the show as simply and quickly as I can. There will probably be important things that I leave out. Here goes. Laura is the mom of Eliza. She is recently widowed and trying to get back on her feet and find a job. Whitney is a PR dynamo who just ended her engagement to her cheating, lying fiancé. She and Laura are friends. Steven is a photographer who is just getting back into being a photographer after a serious bout with the bottle. He is trying to have a relationship with his son Max, whom he almost never sees. He's also dating the much younger Anya. Damian is tryin... read more
