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

SEASON:

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A spin-off to nowhere, L.A.'s Finest operates on outdated sensibilities and wastes its talented leads' time -- especially unfortunate considering Gabriel Union's committed performance.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 (14) | Top Critics (5)

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...

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.

May 13, 2019 | Full Review…

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.

Jul 29, 2019 | Rating: 4/10 | 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…

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…

Feels hopelessly outdated, the kind of thing that could have premiered on a broadcast network at any time in the last 25 years (a few swear words aside).

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

  • Oct 31, 2019
    The critics panned it. The public love it! I think that this has been one of Jessica Alba's best performances that I've seen. Her character trying to balance her marriage, being a step-mother and a 'big' sister makes it all the more intriguing to witness. Whilst that is unfolding, Gabrielle Union puts in a compelling performance as a hard-hitting detective coupled with her reconciling with her estranged father. Both these characters along with their 'sidekicks' the Two Bens make for some good comedic scenes. Glad to see that the series has been renewed.

    I love how they added that bad boys references tropical fruity Bubblicous and skittles.

    L.A's finest has everything you could ever want in a cop duo show. First of all, the leads, Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba perfect the cop witty banter and don't apologize for being strong, sexy, incredibly smart women and they shouldn't. Rotten Tomatoes seems to not like strong female lead shows that go against the norm. Their rating criteria dor this show is beyond terrible. This show is a must watch and give credit to the bad boys franchise but it is simply an amazing show all on its own that is produced by these two talented women and shot incredibly well. The action scenes, the dramatic scenes and the comedic scenes are just beautiful and the timing of the line deliveries are a work of art. Check out this show for yourself, you won't want to stop watching it because it is one of the most satisfying balanced shows I have ever seen that is not some cookie-cutter cop drama. Go on this unpredictable ride and post your opinion of this show. It's amazing!!!!

    Can't wait for season 2
  • Jun 20, 2019
    THANK YOU FOR A SECOND SEASON!!!! love this show!

    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.
