The team is composed of detectives Vic Mackey (Michael Chikliss), Shane Vendrell (Walton Goggins), Curtis "Lem" Lemansky (Kenny Johnson) and Ronnie Gardocki (David Rees Snell). They operate out of a converted church known as "The Barn" with the rest of the force which includes detectives Claudette Wyms (CCH Pounder) and Holland "Dutch" Wagenbach (Jay Karnes), and officers Danielle "Danny" Sofer (Catherine Dent) and Julian Lowe (Michael Jace). The captain of the division is David Aceveda (Benito Martinez), who's political ambitions see him climbing up the ladder to city councilman later in the series. This ensemble is joined by some stellar guests throughout the series, including Glenn Close, Forest Whitaker, Anthony Anderson, Francesco Quinn and Laurie Holden.
The pilot is nothing short of jaw dropping - and inserts you straight into the chaos from the outset. One may find it hard to take the side of Vic Mackey after viewing it - but after a few episodes you are drawn to his charisma and no holds barred bravado. Filmed in a documentary style reminiscent of front-of-the-line war correspondent footage, the camerawork is quick and fluid, and serves as a first person perspective on the action. The initial storyline is immediately compelling, and as lines in the sand between the characters keep shifting, allegiances that are tight one minute are gone the next.Read more ›
Little did I know just what kind of viewing experience my fiance and I were in for when we popped in that first disc......
NON STOP ACTION, PEOPLE!!!!!! From the opening title (which is in your face and to the point, much like the show) to the end credits. The laughter, drama, anger, and disgust you feel towards the characters is unbelievable.
I had only been exposed to NYPD BLUE as a "Cop Drama" and so I really was not prepared for the gritty, graphic content of The Shield, which I am glad of. I think if we knew what we were getting into the excitement would not have been as heightened.
The series can be a bit long but the wait for the last season, 7, is worth it. You find afterwards that you keep revisiting the story and want to explore the twists that lead to the conclusion again.

The packaging was, for the most part, great. However, the DVDs themselves are stored half on one side and half on the other. Read morePublished 25 days ago by Jason

The price is great for being able to obtain the full series. The reason for the cheap price is that it's 2 piles of dvds on a spindle rather than any sort of "fancy"... Read morePublished 1 month ago by GMac
Je dois avouer que je n'aime pas beaucoup la manière dont le coffret est fait. Il ne se manipule pas bien. La série est excellente même si c'est assez violent.Published 1 month ago by Gillian
