The show focuses on the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. While they do have the ability to make arrests anywhere in the county, they generally do not patrol in the city of Los Angeles (as represented in the story) since it's covered by L.A.P.D. instead. The Sheriff's Department works in unincorporated towns like Altadena and East Los Angeles, incorporated cities that contract with them like Santa Clarita and West Hollywood, and transit agencies like Metrolink and Los Angeles MTA.

Being a fan of Refn's previous work I've been waiting patiently for this and definitely not disappointed. Yes it's a slow-burn piece but with that it's building perfect atmosphere and mood! If you enjoyed Drive, Only God Forgives and Valhalla Rising you'll be in for a treat here. The soundtrack is dark, gloomy and the visuals have a beautiful tint of colours.
A little disappointed in reviewers saying it's slow and giving low scores after only seeing 1 episode. It's for viewers with open minds and willing to take in what's happening in a cinematography stand point, sounds, as well as acting and story...
If I was to compare this to other directors work I'd say it has a fair bit of Lynch's abstract filmmaking and Kubrick's tracking shots on top of its own unique originality.
Extremely dark, powerful, provocative and holds a place in my heart.
