The Shield

#1
Yet another post by me :D

Awesome cop show, the strike team are just dirty as fcuk and they get away with it most of the time.

Should be an inspiration for the filth, er I mean police forces around the world...

Third Watch is class and they've finally pulled their finger out and the first season is out on DVD 22nd May for about 35 quid I think

And having real fire/paramedic & cops in the cast adds realism too.Did you see the 2 parter non fiction one on FX about 9/11? Very poignent.

I tend to pick up ent's officer jobs on my travels (Due to having a large and varied DVD collection)

The Shield is without doubt the most popular tv series I've seen. Fast, gritty action, violent, decent characters, definitly edge of seat stuff etc

I've yet to meet the man who says this is sh_t. Usually one episode is not enough

I sat with a bunch of ruffty tufty oil worker while watching the last episode of series one, when the credits rolled, they all sat there in almost shocked silence, followed by deep exhalations , eyebrows raised and facking hell that was mad, when does series two come out gimp, type utterances

If you haven't seen it I'd definitely recommend it

Too much man arrse in NYPD Blue. I do love The Shield, but I'm a Law & Order guy at heart.

Vic Mackie rules - the bit when he 'interviews' the paedo with the phone book is brilliant. I have seasons 1 & 2 but missed all of season 3 when it was on the TV as it was past my bed time...

Going to watch all of season 3 and probably season 4 this weekend, I just can't get enough of it, the sh1t they get up to is class. Especially right at the end of season 2....

Absolutely love the shield and i'm not usually a fan of police drama's. Finished watching series 5 about a month or so ago and i really cant wait for series 6 i want to see how all the loose ends are tied up.

Re Third Watch, there are 6 series yet they only show the first three? Anyone know why?
 
#11
I missed season 3 as well, I particularly like the one where he has Shane Vendrell clearing out the homo prostitutes.

"You're shirt is gay enough for the job"

Classic!

Shocking finale at the end.....Wonder if Vic [ DELETED BY MOD BECAUSE I HAVEN'T SEEN SEASON TWO YET EITHER AND IF YOU SPOIL IT FOR ME ITS A BANNING FOR YOU!!! ]

You guys only saw it now? That season ended here 6 months ago. I think the next season (apparently the last) has already been shown in the States.
 
#18
Has been one of the best things on TV recently and has kept me watching - when I remembered about it.... just waiting for the next season of "The Wire" now aswell - that too is a very good series.

I've seen the latest/last series. They all die in the end in a helicopter crash. Wasn't expecting that one.
