Conscience is a Killer.
As the Strike Team battles racial tensions in the city, friction inside The Barn escalates with the arrival of Lieutenant Jon Kavanaugh (Forest Whitaker), an dogged Internal Affairs cop obsessed with taking down down Vic Mackey, squeezing Vic's ex-wife Corrine, to do it. In the midst of this chaos, Dutch and Claudette's work relationship becomes strained, Danny refuses to reveal the father of her baby and Julien struggles with a new, attractive rookie partner.

This four disc collection includes all 12 episodes from Season 5 of The Shield!

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

Editor's 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 L.A. district of Farmington, employing dubious but effective crime fighting methods as a tough, successful, but corrupt cop. The other detectives and cops on the force disapprove of the team's methods, while the precinct head, Captain David Aceveda (Benito Martinez), is just as corrupt as Mackey. The stoic, upright Detective Claudette Wyms (CCH Pounder, ER), 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 the controversial themes and violent nature of the content manage the effect of making audiences really think about what they're watching. This collection presents the series' fifth season in its entirety.
