Storyline

Ben Sherman and his partner get the case in posh Bel Air of a robber who physically terrorized villa owner David Milliard and his daughter Daisy, an old acquaintance, who is surprised to see him on the force. Their friendship blossoms into a sexual affair, but that's against LAPD rules with a victim. By checking in on his mother, who often forgets the alarm, Ben discovers to his fury his scumbag father bought her home and is back in her life. Detective Russell Clarke moves out from his insanely jealous wife to a friend's security firm's client's guest house. The neighborhood suffers a wave of daring robberies, some of which and brutally bloody. All are traced to a cocaine-addicted jeweler and her dealer's ruthless colored gang. Officer John Cooper hides his back ache and is desperate for painkillers without prescription. Written by KGF Vissers

Det. Sammy Bryant: What do you see? Do you see a school, a supermarket? Do you see a newsstand? No, you do not. You see homeless people, junkies, and concrete.
Tammi Bryant: I hate where we live. It's killing me creatively.

Affluent break-ins and plummeting spirits
17 January 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

'Westside' reminded me of that "Miami Vice" episode, 'The Home Invaders'. Lydia and Russell enlist the help of other squads while a rash of violent burglaries is going on, and it felt very similar. Not a bad comparison, but I just found it amusing.

Anyhoo, that's the main plot, but the real drama is in the other story lines. Put simply, Neither Cooper nor Sherman is having a good day. The former's painkiller addiction is getting beyond his control, while the latter's facing his own demons when his estranged father walks back into the house.

Cooper's situation is especially heartbreaking. It's going to get worse

  • much worse - but to see a proud, morally superior officer (a good


one) at the end of his rope and asking around for meds is a bitter pill (no pun intended). Copper insists he's in control, and even his partner doesn't buy it. It's just an epic case of denial and those are never easy to witness.

7/10
