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A spin-off to nowhere, L.A.'s Finest operates on outdated sensibilities and wastes its talented leads' time -- especially unfortunate considering Gabriel Union's committed performance.

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...

L.A.'s Finest is a show that could have done well in the mid-2000s. It's a paint-by-numbers police show with a decent budget, starring known actresses as women who can kick ass and joke with the boys. The problem is that now, it's dull and it's lazy.

Given its lineage, it would have made more sense to call the series Bad Girls. But that's okay; no one will ever mistake it for being anything other than bad.

Jul 17, 2019 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

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…

Thing is, a female-led action-comedy where both leads are capable badasses who are partial to a shag and a laugh: broadly, good. But LA's Finest is so obvious with it.

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…

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

    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.
