Southland Babel
2 March 2013 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

After the dramatic conclusion of Lydia last week when her mother was taken away. Seeing her ease back into work was nice although I do not like the way the show is handling her child because for most of the show it seems she does not have a child. John got rid of his partner now getting a new one who he does not have to train much and the two get on well with each other throughout the day. Sammy and Ben continue to have their problems not good at communicating and out of the two Sammy is the smarter even if Ben is more educated still making silly mistakes. All the characters seem to have many problems facing them and many of the events across seem obviously stupid with only really one crime ending the episode seeing Sammy and Ben make their way through all the dead bodies.

EPISODE GRADE: B- (MVP: Shawn Hatosy)
