L.A.’s Finest

Justin Lubin/Sony Pictures Television/Spectrum Originals

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on Spectrum on Demand

Series Debut
Huzzah for progress: Hollywood still churns out cut-and-paste action comedies, but now women get to take the lead. Gabrielle Union reprises her Bad Boys II role as Syd Burnett, an LAPD detective who spends her downtime racking up one-night stands. Her partner Nancy McKenna (Jessica Alba) is the opposite: a married stepmom who pouts when you miss family book club. Together they (cue all the sad trombones) trade quips during shootouts and hide Dark Secrets. Other fine actors wasted here include Evan Handler, all boxy-suit bluster as Captain Hirsch, and Ernie Hudson as Syd’s father. “It doesn’t get any realer than this,” Hirsch intones in the premiere. It doesn’t get any better, either. C– —Kristen Baldwin

Line of Duty

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on Acorn TV

Line of Duty may lack the Homeland glamour of creator Jed Mercurio’s recent hit Bodyguard, with its sexy international conspiracies and government ministers clicking their stilettos down long marble hallways. Instead, it’s a deliberately paced, proudly procedural cop show set in a grim England of station houses and scrubby chip shops. But the long-running series is still addictive; after a wobbly fourth season starring Thandie Newton, Duty’s mojo returns with a taut, screw-turning examination of an undercover officer gone rogue—the kind of slow-burn drama that earns your devotion. A– —Leah Greenblatt
