5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely amazing. What more san I say? Well this..., 25 Jan. 2005
When the second season of The Shield finally came to five I thought that it could never be as shocking, exciting, thought provoking and intriguing as the groundbreaking first season. But it was. The second season is a rollercoaster of emotions in which you feel for each of the characters as they fight against crime (the respectable and clean cut Dutch and Claudette), corruption (the supposedly corruption free and politically minded Captain of the station David Aceveda) and try to survive in the troubled neighbourhood of a Los Angeles area.
One of the best things about The Shield is its gritty and graphic realism. Many cop shows claim to be this, but The Shield is the only one I have seen that can really live up to the statement. The creator Shawn Ryan manages to do this through the infamous strike team led by Detective Vic Mackey. Him and his team of detectives push the boundaries of legal police work and are often on the edge of becoming the very people they seek to put behind bars.
If you enjoyed the inventive and original plots of season one then you will not be disappointed by season two. The episodes can be watched over and over again and they never become mundane or boring. If you have never seen The Shield before then you really should watch the first season. After that I know you'll want to buy this straight away.
One more thing. If for some reason you missed series 3 on TV (which could only be excused if you were isolated form humanity for the whole time it ran. Then you may be wondering if series 3 could ever live up to the legacy of the previous instalments of The Shield. I have the very simple answer you've been looking for...
YES
