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.

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.

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" can be seen as the natural successor to "Hill Street Blues". It is character-driven and it focuses upon a disparate group of police officers in an inner-city precinct. However, it also subverts the genre in many ways.
There was a clear moral and ethical distinction between cops and villains in "Hill Street Blues". In "The Shield", necessity overrides fine moral distinctions. The line between good and bad is frequently blurred. Farmington Police Station is situated symbolically within a crumbling church.
The programme follows the fortunes of the Strike Team, whose twisted and exclusive moral code is constantly tested by self-interest, greed and the survival instinct. Vic Mackey and his team are often depicted as just another street gang, doing what is necessary to protect (and enrich) themselves whilst maintaining a balance between the gangs who just happen to be on the wrong side of the law. They are contrasted with Detectives Wyms and Wagenbach, two honest cops who struggle to stick to rules which are at odds with the environment in which they work.
There is a manic energy behind the production. Scenes are short, the camera is hand-held, dialogue is frequently profane. Everything is relevant to the story. The depiction of sexual violence is often shocking (perhaps gratuitous).
Mackey and his team are often the bad guys. However, they possess an energy, bravery and (at first) a ferocious loyalty to each other which endears them to us, whatever our misgivings about their criminal activities.
Acting is almost uniformly excellent. Michael Chiklis is outstanding as Mackey, short in stature but possessed of extreme aggression.
