L.A.'s Finest (2019)

L.A.'s Finest

Critics Consensus

A spin-off to nowhere, L.A.'s Finest operates on outdated sensibilities and wastes its talented leads' time -- especially unfortunate considering Gabriel Union's committed performance.

Audience Reviews for L.A.'s Finest: Season 1

  • Apr 03, 2022
    Amazing show!!!!! Need a season 3
  • Mar 17, 2022
    So sad that the series was better when the two ladies were NOT on screen.
  • Mar 06, 2022
    Great show very engaging great cast, disappointed no 3rd series
  • Dec 13, 2021
    It was ok, was hoping it would get better! Formulaic cop-buddy drama.
  • Aug 26, 2021
    Solid action series. Great performance from Gabrielle Union.
  • Aug 13, 2021
    It is tagged as a comedy but it is not funny and not even fun. If it is a drama show, the drama has no logic in it and shows how stupid the people are in the whole show. If it is an action show, the pace is way too slow and there is simply no good action. Don't waste your time watching it.
  • May 26, 2021
    Watched not much, but that was terrible enough for episode 1.
  • Apr 26, 2021
    This is the worse thing I've seen these two in, and it's extremely disappointing. I couldn't make it through a full episode because the script and plot sucked all the charisma out of these two.
  • Mar 30, 2021
    I love the cast, so was hoping to settle in and enjoy Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba, but wow, this show is so poorly written. It's often so obvious when men are writing for women, in these shows. Too bad. Missed opportunity.

    The finest!!!!!!!!!!
