TV Show Reviews
of the South" review by Suzanne
Thursdays, 10/9c on USA Network
Normally, I don't like shows about drug dealers or killers.
I have a hard time with shows that feature a bad person or a
criminal as a protagonist (with just a few exceptions).
However, I do think that this is a very good and enjoyable
show. It has a lot of thrilling stuff, tons of action, and
good story. It's very realistic in many ways as well. They
chose a good actress to play Theresa, the lead character.
She shows a lot of vulernability in the character, which
helps us to empathize with her. The characters are probably
the best part of the show, in fact. They seem very real.
The story begins with her getting shot, and we don't know
if she dies or not. We hear her voice-over that tells
us that she's a rich and powerful drug dealer. The
first episode flashes back to her past in Mexico and how she
got involved in the drug dealing business. She and her
boyfriend are people you would probably not want to know in
real life because they're dangerous and are involved in
dangerous activities, but yet you feel for them and like
The story is very compelling and has many great actors as
well. Veronica Falcón plays another strong
woman on the show. So it's not your usual tale about "bad
guys." It's more from a woman's perspective, which is
enticing. If I had time, I would keep watching this
show to see what happens. It would be interesting to see how
they keep it going.
The only thing I didn't like was when she sees visions of
herself from the future. That was bizarre and didn't fit in
with the rest of the show. I hope they put an end to that
kind of silliness.
Check it out and see for yourself!
