L.A.'s Finest: Season 1 (2019)


Season 1
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A spin-off to nowhere, L.A.'s Finest operates on outdated sensibilities and wastes its talented leads' time -- especially unfortunate considering Gabriel Union's committed performance.

Critic Reviews for L.A.'s Finest Season 1

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (4)

Everyone can find another show exactly like this one on Fox or other broadcast networks, USA or other cable outlets, and even streaming services. They don't need Spectrum for this kind of show...

Top Critic

Uninspired female-led action-comedy has violence, language.

Jun 18, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

A half-hearted spin-off that no one really asked for.

May 16, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

L.A.'s Finest feels like a show that should have come out in 2004, not 2019.

May 13, 2019 | Full Review…

Feels hopelessly outdated, the kind of thing that could have premiered on a broadcast network at any time in the last 25 years (a few swear words aside).

May 13, 2019 | Full Review…

This particular show seems ill-suited to its format: Meant to live on an on-demand platform, this drama seems oddly unlikely to have been specifically demanded by anyone at all.

May 14, 2019 | Full Review…

L.A.'s Finest quickly sinks into mediocrity, unable to offer the same kind of big-screen thrills in a weekly format, or find much of anything new to say about odd couples and pasts that won't stay hidden.

L.A.'s Finest isn't awful, but I probably won't be watching any more of it.

May 14, 2019 | Full Review…

A loud, dumb mess of a cop drama, loaded up with corny punchlines and incoherent plotting. So if you don't have the ability to watch it... well, consider yourself lucky.

May 13, 2019 | Rating: D | Full Review…

Obviously, some will see the gender of the leads a momentous occasion worth trumpeting, and it is, but the show is packaged so nicely and the partners are so complementary that their sex becomes moot.

    After watching 1 episode, I said, "This is so idiotic it is funny. It will be renewed." And I was right.
  • Jun 16, 2019
    I literally don't care about the plot -- I am only watching because Jessica Alba is in it. If she weren't in it, I'd give it 0 stars.
  • Jun 15, 2019
    This is a great show.
  • Jun 14, 2019
    So Horrible only Jessica Alb looks good, the Affirmative Action Lead is vomit gross, acting sucks, no plot, just waste of time. It promotes Man Hate.
  • Jun 12, 2019
    It's entertaining but not necessarily riveting. I'll keep watching.
  • Jun 02, 2019
    Bad boys rip off not very good acting is not greate and script week
  • Jun 02, 2019
    I was reluctant to start watching this show, but I really got into it pretty quickly. I like how action packed it has been, and I am really enjoying the sass the ladies bring. Sarcasm is my thing and they serve quite a bit of it!
  • May 30, 2019
    It's corny as hell. But as the plot begins to unravel it becomes quite interesting. They've left enough crumbs to keep me interested, at least.
