5.0 out of 5 stars I had my doubts... Oct. 3 2003
Format:DVD
To be honest, I never thought that The Shield could live up to the expectations set by the premier episode. I was so incredibly wrong. The first year of The Shield completely blew my doors off. Non stop action, great plotting, dialogue and the acting was top notch. Other than the birth of my sons, those thirteen hours were the best I spent that year. It had to go downhill though, right? The second season would be the one where Ryan and company would resort to the tired conventions of police drama and my new favorite show would lose it's edge. Happily- Wrong again.
Season two developed the characters of Mackey and his crew to new levels. If you haven't seen the show I won't ruin anything for you, but everyone is put through the wringer in these thirteen episodes. We get political intrigue, interoffice machinations, great police drama with healthy doses of sex and violence. Unfortunately that's what most people focus on.
Chicklis deserved the Emmy for the quiet moments as well as the brutal ones. This actor has got a slow burn like no other. There are moments where he says nothing but we can tell all the alternatives he is running through his head by simply looking at his eyes and physicality. This season brings Mackey to a crossroads where he has to make some serious decisions about where his life is headed and we feel every emotion he is going through thanks to this beautiful, bald man.
That having been said, this is not a series for the faint of heart. There are scenes of physical torture, violence against women, hostage situations and raw sex. You are forewarned.
If your stomach can take a brutal, skillfully written, brilliantly acted police drama there is no better way to take up space in your DVD player than The Shield.

The second season package of The Shield does justice to it. As far as I could tell, actor commentaries are less frequent on this one than on the 1st season set - with more from the crew. My own bias with special features is for those that feature the actors - the best one in that regard is "Wrap Day" which shows the cast and crew in the midst of filming the last episode of the season. There are some truly hilarious moments in that, particularly those featuring Michael Chiklis. Another featurette makes you appreciate how much goes into sound editing. A roundtable featuring directors of The Shield is a reasonably frank appraisal of how the show is made.
The DVD retains the same grainy documentary-like resolution of the TV show and it works in that regard, rather than looking like a bad transfer (other FOX shows are not as lucky in this way).
The episodes themselves remain strong. The season arc was unpredictable - the sense I had of where things were going midseason proved completely off. This is a good thing - the show's strength is its ability to move in surprising directions. Strong and compelling writing is central to The Shield, but my theory about its success is that it is has the best casting on television. Every one of the actors does terrific work with their roles. Michael Chiklis deserves all the plaudits he has received, but credit is also due to C.C.H. Pounder, Jay Karnes, Walton Goggins, Michael Jace, Catherine Dent, and Benito Martinez among others. Their characters are complicated and unpredictable and this is why The Shield is such a success.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vic Mackey's Gang Keeps Jammin' June 15 2004
By JavaTom
Format:DVD
I often miss the televised episodes of The Shield, so it was a great 13-hour marathon watching the second season DVD last weekend. If you're a fan, this is a must see; if you haven't caught an episode yet, get the first AND second season DVD's and you won't be disappointed. Without giving away plot lines, Vic Mackey, as head of the LAPD's "Farmington" division Strike Team (remember the Ramparts division scandals?) is a complex, almost Shakespearean character,played impeccably by Michael Chiklis. Rooting for him and his corrupt yet noble team feels a lot like cheering Tony Soprano and the Jersey boys, except the Soprano family rarely, if ever, brings down the hardened criminals...they just compete with them. The supporting cast are no slouches either; CCH Pounder is awesome as the righteous yet street-wise Lt. Claudette Wyms. This is cop-drama at its absolute best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still getting better May 24 2004
Format:DVD
After buying season 1 I enjoyed every episode and got season 2 right away. This season was even more compelling then the first with Vic facing off with a Mexican drug/gang lord trying to take over the streets. I found myself watching three episodes at a time and burning through the season in less then a week. Almost every character on the show is so real because they have flaws and strengths, this makes the show so much more then most and I strongly recommend it to adults but not kids.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great shows & Good DVDs March 10 2004
By KAL-03
Format:DVD
My husband is hooked on the Sopranos, which I do not enjoy, so when he tried to tempt me into the Shield, I balked. After listening from the other room as he watched, I was drawn closer and closer, and I am now a confirmed Shield addict.
A couple of comments about the series: a story about corrupt cops naturally tends to be dark. However, Vic Mackey and his band of detectives are not totally corrupt and are not without any redeeming qualitities. Consequently, the characters are engaging and sometimes charming, and the show has moments of real humor to it. The show is absolutely not for kids: there is a very violent theme underlying the daily activities of the officers (both on and off duty) and a great deal of implied violence, but there is little of the overt, graphic, on-scene violence or torture that I sat through in the Sopranos... I have yet to have to leave the room during an episode of the Shield because of some bloody murder or another. Nonetheless, some plots are very disturbing (for example, one deals with the retaliation rape of a young girl: the assault is not shown, but the effect of the attack is readily apparent). The plots are well developed and generally do not lose their thread mid-episode or mid-season (in contrast, what happened to the Russians in the Sporanos??), however, some of the Shield characters go through some changes that are difficult to follow. (If you want to know who, you'll have to watch for yourself.)
As to the DVDs themselves: there are few extra features on the discs, but the show is sufficiently compelling that we didn't need much more. There is cast commentary which adds a little, but not much. The disks have been compatible with every DVD player we've used them on (at least 4 different models), and have stood up well to normal use and abuse.
