Awesome Entertainment ! ! !
The shield (seasons 1-7) is one of the best TV series of all time. There is never a dull moment. Vic Mackey plays the ultimate dirty cop leading a small team of get it done no matter how cops ( No one does it better) The shield has it all--great writing/cast/acting/photography/guest stars---Long before "Breaking Bad" and with a lot less lag between family/personal problem scenes back to action scenes the shield stands with few other series in the greatness circle. Like reading a book you just can't put down the shield will pull you in and keep you gripped.

Season 4 Doesn't Disappoint!
The Shield is one of the most gripping shows on television and Season 4 is no exception! It was so tempting just to watch all the episodes in one sitting - I don't know how I manage when I have to wait for the new episodes to air on TV! There are plenty of other cop shows on TV but the thing that stands out to me about this show is the character development; shows like Law & Order are so episodic and really neglect to delve into the main characters, but in The Shield the characters seem more real (instead of archetypes) and the longer plot line is way more compelling than an episodic format. Furthermore, the writers challenge social norms and might even make you question our own opinions regarding law enforcement. This show has everyting - action, depth, and a killer plot!<br><br>The best part about Season 4 was without a doubt the introduction of Glenn Close as Captain Monica Rawlings. Who would've known she could succesfully take on this kind of role? A pleasant surprise! Having Monica and Vic work together was an unexpected but really interesting story arc, and definitely my favorite part of Season 4. Shane's misadventures in the vice unit will also keep viewers riveted. This may be the fourth season but the show is still going strong and doesn't feel old or stale at all.Read full review

Must see TV
Great Show. Might have been the best drama on TV right next to 24. Chiklis is as good as Sutherland and the storylines are great. Great supporting cast as well.

GETS BETTER EACH EPISODE-SOA FANS WILL LOVE THIS
Watched seasons 1-3 so far and just started 4th season. Season #1 was kind of all over the place and hard to follow as was the very beginning of season #2 and then around the second disc of season #2 this show finally made sense and it really picked up. It just keeps getting better and you look forward to the next episode. Bought the rest of the seasons through #7 the final act and am looking forward to the ride. Definitely worth it. I'm a Sons of Anarchy fan and the the characters come from the shield as they share the same writers= Kurt Sutter and Shawn Ryan...its funny to see the SOA regulars in their earlier years...

Worth wacthing all seasons
This is a good show for people who like gritty truth, politically incorrect humor, and deep character development. It is very violent, and more blunt than Law & Order SVU could ever be (love that show though).
