The walls are closing in...,
This review is from: The Shield - Season 5 [DVD]  (DVD)
The Shield hit its stride in Season 4, but Season 5 sees it positively strutting its stuff. With 4 seasons under its belt and a second Hollywood A-lister in its casts the show is full of confidence.
The writing continues to go from strength to strength and a number of new characters are introduced to the show - including one Forest Whitakker who plays an extremely unhinged IAD agent out to bust Vic and his team.
Now more than ever, the walls are closing in and both luck and time are running out for the Farmington Strike Force. How the dust will settle and where the cards will fall is anyone's guess but the season wraps up with a finale as shocking as that of the show's pilot - which you first saw a whole five box sets ago now.
When you look back at where you've been, where this show is going is anyone's guess, but the future looks more uncertain than ever now for Vic and his crew and that can't be a good thing for those that are threatening him - especially when LA's street are being flooded with illegal grenades!
