Southland “Legacy” Review

In ‘Legacy’, the Southland cops think about what they will create and leave behind in this world once they’re gone. Cooper is given a pin for reaching twenty years of service (though, as he points out, it’s actually closer to 22) and tells Tang his aim is to make it to six stripes – 30 years – and a day. A father murdering his son for the greater good gives Lydia something else to consider about becoming a parent. Meanwhile, Sherman and Sammy spend most of the episode pulling pranks on each other.
