Editors Note
Note Transgressing the seemingly rock-solid boundaries of regular television programming, THE SHIELD refuses the strictures of black and white depictions of clear-cut moral dilemmas in favor of an ambiguity that will challenge even the most jaded viewers. Detective Vic Mackey (Michael Chiklis, THE COMMISH) leads the elite Strike Team in the fictional LA district of Farmington. He employs dubious but effective crime fighting methods as a tough, effective, but corrupt cop. The other detectives and cops on the force disapprove of the Team's methods, to say the least, while the precinct head, Captain David Aceveda (Benito Martinez, ) is just as corrupt as Mackey, but his political aspirations lead him into a campaign to end the detective's career. The stoic, upright Detective Claudette Wyms (CCH Pounder ER, BOYCOTT), who understands both sides of the game, provides a much needed balance and rationality to the mix. The charismatic Mackey strikes just the right pitch so as to be the least sympathetic antihero television has yet seen, while retaining his audience, who refuses to write him off quite yet. Meanwhile, the controversial themes and violent nature of the content manages the effect--inconsistent at best in TV programming--of making audiences really think about what they're watching.
Total Film 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he Chiklis-directed 'Slipknot' and humdinging finale 'On Tilt' are the sure sign of a series on fire." 07/01/2007 p.123
Ultimate DVD 5 stars out of 5 -- "THE SHIELD meets its quota of shock and awe, with enough 'Oh, my God' moments to leave the viewer reeling." 08/01/2007 130

Britt Gillette, The DVD Report of the top police dramas of the past decade...[with] a strong, well-rounded cast...
Chicago Sun-Times Once it grabs you, The Shield doesn't let go.
Dan Heaton, Digitally Obsessed! ...riveting police drama...compelling...spellbinding television.
Dave Johnson, DVD Verdict ...the hardest-hitting, most balls-to-the-wall show on television, and one of the high points of the seemingly emaciated cop genre.
Home Theater Info The Shield is America in microcosm; entertaining the audience as this show provokes thought on very real issues that face all of us today.
Ron J. Epstein, DVD Talk The storylines are tight, there's rarely ever a dull moment, and it's well acted.
Tor Thorsen, ...stabs the cop-show genre in the gut and rubs salt in the wounds...a must for any lover of crime fiction.
