Coming off a very positive, insanely character developed season, this season doesnt disapoint one bit. Because of the Barn's former captain's (played briliantly by Glen Close) request, IAD has come to watch over Vic Mackey's strike team. IAD Lieutenant Jon Kavanaugh comes to LA, obsessed with nailing Vic with not only some small crimes hes done in the past, but also the murder of Detective Terry Crowly.
First off, let me sat Forest Whitaker got ROBBED at the emmys. He should have been a shoe-in, but apparently he escaped the votes to even get nominated. Easily some of the best acting Ive seen from a television show, and not just from Whitaker, or ever Chiklis, but from almost everyone in the cast.
Clearly the best show on televion, in my opinion, has gotten 10 times better with this latest season. With each coming year, I always say they cant top the previous season (hell, Im even saying it about this season!), but they seem to shock me every time.
The final 2 episodes may be the best of the entire SERIES. I swear, I sat there after the second to last episode, and didnt know what to do. I had work early in the morning, but I couldnt get to sleep. I actually got up from bed, and went down to watch that episode's encore presentation because from the end of that episode, I couldnt think of anything else. And I dont even want to get started on the heartbreaking final episode because I dont want to ruin anything, but that ending has left my jaw perminently dropped for months now. I really have no idea where they are going to take it from here.
Warning: Do not start to watch these episodes on DVD anytime close to night because you will be up till 1 or 2 in the morning watching them (no kidding, Ive done it a few times)
All I can say is, if you havent started watching this show yet, DO NOT start in this season. Start from the beginning, trust me you'll want to start there.
