Controversial, compelling and critically acclaimed, THE SHIELD reinvented the police genre and gave us one of the greatest antiheroes in television history. Vic Mackey, a corrupt cop, runs hie elite Strike Team under his own set of rules, bringing conflict to not only the streets of Los Angeles, but also within his precinct. THE SHIELD showcases acting, directing and writing of the highest caliber.

The Shield is one of best cop shows of all time and this boxset is quite satisfactory. BUT the feature length season finales of Seasons 5 and 6 have been cut. It shouldn't come as a surprise, the Region 2 individual boxsets were edited in the same way, hence all the irate reviews here on Amazon. The Region 1 boxsets were intact. For all the diehard Shield fans who love watching the show in sequence, watching this one may cause confusion.
Eg in Season 5 not all of Kavanagh's exchange with Corrine is displayed, plus Danny doesn't confront her baby's father. Yet in Season 6 Danny and father's identity is common knowledge. These issues aside, why pay for dvds with edited episodes when they were broadcast in full on TV.
If you want the full package you're better off buy the individual boxsets. For such an eagerly awaited arrival, it is such as a disappointment.

Bought this boxset in the hopes that it would have the complete unedited episodes... but unfortunately this is just a repackage of the already released Region 2 discs, meaning that the Season 5 finale still has that huge 20 minute chunk taken out of it, which actually leads to some relatively confusing scenes later in Season 6.

Don't get me wrong, this show is awesome... and I can't recommend it enough to anyone who hasn't seen it. but it's a shame that they didn't use this re release as a chance to include the episodes as they originally aired.

There are certain shows which come along with a regular premise, but make it their own. "The Shield" is one of these shows. You follow the protagonist "Vic Mackey", a police officer heading up a special unit known as the "Strike team". Their way of protecting and maintaining the peace, is to essentially skirt, and occasionally go well over the boundaries of justice. This means planting drugs on people they know are guilty, taking bribes or withholding evidence to be used again later. It is a scary, and yet highly plausible concept, based upon the real life "Rampart" scandal in Los Angeles (where the show is also based).

I won't ruin any of the storylines, but you can imagine where all of this corruption leads the squad of exceptionally memorable characters. I literally cannot think of a single actor in the entire 7 season run who did any less than a stellar job. Every character evolves, and in some cases it is not for the better. I can honestly say there are less than a handful of shows that have ever shocked me, or hit me with something so powerful I've actually had to stop the enjoyment of watching and sit slack jawed for a while. This show is one of that handful. The drama, the power, the story, they are so strong in the entire run that this show is absolutely a must have. Understand, it is not easy watching. There are some of the most uncomfortable scenes ever written, but I'll be damned if they aren't also some of the most powerful.

The box set itself is also fantastic, great design (it is a collection of case files, holding the series discs within) and the discs themselves house a lot of fantastic content. The extras are great, and will give you plenty to watch besides the show itself. I cannot recommend this show highly enough, it will blow you away. Buy it, earlier than now.

The Shield is a great program, brilliant writing and some shocking twists. This would be a five star product, except this edition has been edited. Having seen the episodes before I was waiting for certain scenes and knew what happened. If you hadn't seen it before some of the scenes get covered in the re-caps at the start of the episodes which you haven't seen. Very irritating.

Over all if you've not seen The Shield, this is a cracking show and I would highly recommened it.

One of the worst designed DVD packages I've seen, but that wouldn't matter if key moments from the show weren't cut from this. Season 5 has a major plotline that is mentioned throughout, and if you select the final episode of the season you get a still image from said plotline. When I watched it, I was seriously confused to find no resolution, or mention of what happened. I Googled to discover a key moment - which affects the show going forward is cut for some reason. All mentions of the plot have been removed for whatever reason. This is doing the viewing public a disservice. There's probably some cost-saving reason, but it's an absolutely shocking decision, and the kind of thing that puts people off buying box-sets. Having said that, the show is great. I'm just disappointed fans would be treated in such a shoddy way. It's not minor filler that's cut, it's the conclusion to a who-dunnit plotline. Terrible stuff.

Format: DVD
To me, this is pretty much The Wire with action and rogue cops, which made it much more exciting and rivetting. Despite it being 7 series long, there's an over-arching storyline which takes you right from the beginning of Season 1 to the end of Season 7, along with countless plots and sub-plots along the way.

You can't help but like and admire Vic, the main cop, for his methods in cleaning up the street, even if they're somewhat unconventional. The 3 other members of his Strike Team are crazy Shane, big softy Lem and quiet and loyal Ronnie, each of whom you come to like in their own way, although Shane soon became the loosest of cannons.

I'm not sure if such strike teams exist in the US, as they basically seem like a bunch of good ole boys who love kicking in doors and shooting at the slightest opportunity, despite highly-trained Swat teams being available and who would surely use proper tactics. Having said that, it was heck of a good fun watching Vic and the boys in action.

The ending is truly tragic in so many ways, which had us really feeling the pain of the characters, but that's evidence of what a well-written and compelling show this is.

If you like The Wire, NCIS, Sopranos, Sons of Anarchy etc, you'll surely like this a lot.
