Addicted to The Shield

by Aaron on 1/10/2013

The Shield is an edgy complex story line with multiple sub-plots. You will find yourself rooting for the sometimes dirty cops as they take down child molesters and drug dealers while adding cash to their "retirement fund'. Read More

Product Overview

"Continuing directly after season five, Vic and the Strike Team are distraught over Lem's death. Shane has been overcome by guilt and becomes reckless and suicidal. Kavanaugh refuses to let the case die and resorts to planting evidence and coercing witnesses to lie about the Strike Team. Dutch and Claudette begin to suspect Vic's integrity. Vic learns from Claudette that the Chief plans to force him into early retirement -- and vows to wreak bloody vengeance on Lem's killer before losing his badge. Claudette discovers that the Barn could be shut down if no improvements are made by the time quarterly crime statistics are released.

This three disc collection includes all 10 episodes from Season 6 of The Shield!"

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 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. Academy Award-winner Forest Whitaker returns as the evidence-planting Internal Affairs Lt. Jon Kavanaugh for this sixth season, the penultimate chapter of this gripping police drama.

Quotes
Britt Gillette, The DVD Report ...one 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, Reel.com ...stabs the cop-show genre in the gut and rubs salt in the wounds...a must for any lover of crime fiction.
