Trivia

In this episode, Lydia and Russell are told that they will not be able to get a rape kit analyzed (and possibly find out who the rapist is) because there is such a large backlog of forensic materials in the lab waiting to be analyzed that some of the waiting cases are over ten years old. This is taken straight from a true scandal of Los Angeles law enforcement: in March 2009, the organization Human Rights Watch released a report revealing that at that time, there was a backlog of over 12,600 untested rape kits in storage facilities; over 450 of those were over 10 years old; and many of those were evidence in cases for which the statute of limitations had expired.

A change of pace
17 January 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

'Sally in the Alley' is a departure from the typical "Southland" in that it's all detectives and no patrolmen. This doesn't happen often (ever again?) and for that I'm actually relieved. The balance between uniform and plain-clothes is part of what sets this show apart. For one thing, the absence of Cooper and Sherman is striking, but it also means we're left with the cookie-cutter cop show material (waiting on lab results, pivotal plot points coming in via last-minute phone call, you get the idea).

That said, the writers keep these clichés to a minimum and succeed in showing that the investigative side of things can be just as grueling.

7/10
