The gritty and brilliant Southland returns for its fifth run over on TNT this week. In case you haven’t yet seen it, the critically acclaimed cop drama is one of the freshest crime shows on TV. But for all its innovations Southland still centres on a stereotype that’s as old as the genre itself.
You see, just like pants, TV cops tend to come in pairs. It’s something we like to call the ‘cop couple constant,’ a tradition that’s almost as old as the idiot box itself. We’re not too sure why they do it, we just know that save for the odd maverick, the police are better when paired up. So in honour of the latest additions to the roster of detective duos, join us as we look back over the best small screen cops who’ve fought crime over the decades.
