There have been so many cop shows through out the years but nothing like this. This is an in your face show, that will keep you on the edge of your seat. There really has never been anything like this on cable television. You follow the strike team and the rest of the Farmington Police Department on a journey through a fictitious California city Farmington. Farmington is set to be in the south central part L.A.,with tons of gangs,drugs,prostitutes,and crime
The strike team is a notorious police gang unit in Farmington known for being ruff but affective. You follow them through many crazy situations you never know how they will get through. The Farmington P.D is being investigated for corruption and dirty cops.You get a first hand look of raids,drug bust,corruption and many more!
You also look in as detectives Claudette Wims and Dutch Wagenbauch investigate some of the most horrific and crazy crimes. Dutch is a very intellectual yet geeky detective but he is a very affective detective. His geeky ways make him a target for other cops jokes and pranks. Claudette on the other hand is a a tough and smart detective. Together they make an amazing team and when there in that interrogation room you cant take your eyes away!
There is so much say about season 1 of the Shield but I would not want to ruin the season for you. I have now bought the 5 other season and am addicted. This is got to be one of the most riskiest and best shows ever. You almost forget that it is a cable television show because of some of the situations that arise. I will guarantee that any one who buys this will be addicted!
If you're tired of perfect goody two shoes hero cops and boring tear jerky drawn out scenes you'll absolutely love The Shield. Lots of action and lots of convoluted stories culminate in unbelievable situations. The Shield blows the lid off of traditional cop shows.
The arguments of whether or not this series is realistic are moot. The fact of the matter is this series is the best written of them all. The actors are excellent and each one is so believable you feel like the series is real. Get the first 4 seasons (Season 5 is not available in the US yet) and sit back and be completely entertained. The only drawback is the "Shield" addiction you'll have and forcing yourself to go bed late at night instead of watching another episode. It's that good.
Vic Mackey is fantastic!
I had never even heard of the Shield until a friend recommended that I take it for a spin... after the first couple episodes, I had already met a large cast of characters, been introduced to many twisting and connecting plots, and become fascinated by the tightly designed / scripted storyline.
Vic Mackey is the star of the show - a cop dedicated to cleaning the streets and serving his community. But the show is filled with great characters and strong acting... The real star of the show though is the storyline which is amazingly addictive.
Other than Lost - a personal favorite of mine - The Shield is my favorite TV show of the past few years. The great thing about the Shield is that it maintains and improves over time. You will enjoy Seasons 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 - other shows struggle with that (ie Nip/Tuck). Do yourself a favor and enjoy Vic Mackey and The Shield!

If you have never watched an Episode of The Shield, rent one DVD, and you will be hooked! I purchased all 7 Seasons after my son turned me on to a few Episodes. These Series revolve around good cops that are bad, or bad cops that are good at what they do. You decide. However, I think they are the kind of cops every city should have, because they get the job done. Once you push play, I guarantee you will watch back to back to back Episodes without getting off your couch except to grab a bowl of popcorn and put another disc in. Vic Mackey is da man !!! 5*****
this is a great show. this dvd set is the first season and it starts off with a bang. i dont thibnk there has ever been a police drama series as good as this one. i highly recommend it to anyone who likes realistic police action. it is reasl world corruption and deals with the sick situatons that happen in society today.
