Excellent Third Series of a Brilliant Cop Show,
This review is from: Shield: Season 3 [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
The Strike Team are still desperately trying to cover their tracks in the multi million dollar robbery of Armenian drug money, Dutch and Claudette continue to investigate the worst rapes and murders and the Farmington gangsters continue to deal and murder. You would think The Shield couldn't continue at this intense pace forever but it still shows no sign of letting up in the brilliant third season.
Vic and his team of dirty cops are really starting to feel the pressure. The Armenian mob won't stop until they find their stolen money, Aceveda won't stop until he implicates Vic in some wrong doing and Vics estranged wife still doesn't want him back. Local gang bangers are trying to acquire automatic weapons and the violence on the streets never ends. On top of all this, another specialist unit, The Decoy Team have been sent into Farmington which doesn't go down well with the Strike Team.
The stories are still top-notch, the action blistering and the criminals are still the worst kind of scumbags. The Shield remains one of the most intense, violent and brutal shows on TV and I can confirm that season 4 is brilliant too. It's a terrible shame that this is currently unavailable on region 2 dvd as so many people are missing out on the best thing on the box.
