well, if you have watched all the way up to and including season five you are going to watch this eventually, who are you kidding?

SHOULD you buy series 6 on dvd now?

I don't give spoilers in my reviews, but I do give my impression of what I saw. I saw damn good things with season six.

DVD quality and sound (still no 5.1 unfortunately) same as usual. Some nice extras.

I was not aware of the cut episode 'controversy' until I read some of the other reviews, I can confirm that the final episode is indeed longer than the others. The end credits roll up at 1 hours 5 mins and 4 seconds. I didn't notice that at the time by the way, I was too busy enjoying the show.

Brilliant. You get serious resolution to the story, and I'm not just talking about that darned IA chappie. Every episode gives a real advance to the plot we have all spent time enjoying, and our favourites, such as the geeky Dutch, are still there in all their glory.

Without spoiling it, all I can say is that I came away from this feeling satisfied, feeling good and just waiting (very) impatiently for season seven. Don't get me wrong, the story is tied up, but I want more.

Very, very, very good. I am impressed with the whole storyline, the acting, the action and the ending.

I have been smiling most of the morning as I remember different bits of this series, and especially the last episode.

Highly recommended. The Shield ends with a roar, not a whimper.

The only negative I can think of is that there are no commentaries on the season 6 DVDs, only a few (albeit interesting) featurettes. The commentaries on other seasons have been very enjoyable, I recommend trying them out if you have not already.

It's Strike Team - what do you expect?
In fact, this season mid-way through seems actually to drop the tension and complex interplay of subplots, though only in comparison to the adrenalin-pumping pace of previous series. Don't be fooled! The final episode leaves you on the biggest cliffhanger of all, simply gagging for series 7 - alleged to be the last one ever. It's been a stunning feature of The Shield that while some stories last an episode, some a whole series, the overall story extends across the entire run of the programme. Even 'Lord of the Rings' was only three movies! Only by the very end will all the strands of the whole show be tied up - one assumes. With The Shield, along with morally ambivalent characters and dense complicated yet thoroughly compelling plotting, the only thing you can be sure of is surprises. And shocks.

Please disregard the strangely obsessive comments about running time; this series is a treat not a cheat. Splitting what certainly feels like one long season into two (5 and 6) does lead to a slightly perplexing carry-over of the John Kavanaugh/IAD storyline and you might need your memory refreshing if you've allowed yourself a break between seasons. In terms of criticism, that's about it. Exceptional TV making and exceptional entertainment from beginning to end.

The Shield, The Sopranos, The Wire: all different, all outstanding, all hugely enjoyable. It is a little disturbing that serious and seriously violent crime should be the subject matter of such cracking entertainment, but there you are.

series 6 of the best cop show ever to be made maintains the high level of pulse pounding action and high tension. what makes this show so different to every other cop show are the fact that it is based around a corrupt cop and that you can never guess what is going to happen next. even from the very first episode of series 1 when terry, an undercover cop, is murdered by vic the shows plot twists and turns and you dont know whether to be on vics side or be against him. it doesnt matter though as its so thrilling you will want to watch it anyway just to see how it turns out.

OK - I'm here for one reason. I recently was at a friends house and we were talking about great TV shows and The Shield came up and in particular Forest Whitaker's performance. He had the DVD's so over a point we were arguing about we loaded up disc one of Season 6. Something struck me as strange compared to my NZ discs. And after we had resolved the issue at hand I realised what it was - there were no commentary tracks whatsoever.

Episodes 1,2,3,5,6,8,9 and 10 all have the standard incredible commentaries on the NZ/AUS DVD set. There are also the standard deleted scenes on many of the episodes - these too are missing on this UK set. All the episodes are intact - there are no cuts, the subtitles are correct, audio languages are right, and the three extra "specials" are the same exactly, but the commentaries and deleted scenes are nowhere to be found. This is because someone presumably decided it could all fit on three DVDs versus four if they simply removed the stuff nobody probably cared about anyway.

But any fan should and WILL care. These commentaries are some of the very best. Lots of stuff mentioned about Lem in the "after the fact" situation, and perhaps even more importantly about the death of the utterly awesome Scott Brazil and the parallels to Lem's death in the effect it had on all the crew as they tried to come to grips with life matching the creative direction the show had inadvertently taken.

If any of that interests you hunt down the Australian Season 6 DVD set, it is complete like the US one, but is also in the PAL video format like the UK version. You will find it's well worth the effort for these excellent missing extras.
