Now, after seven edge-of-your-seat seasons, you can finally see how this award-winning FX drama turns out. Shane resorts to kidnapping in his dangerous dance with the Armenian mob, Dutch risks everything by becoming personally involved in a homicide investigation, the Strike Team mobilizes to free a drug lord’s daughter – but it all comes down to Detective Vic Mackey confronting his greatest adversary: himself. Pressured to take down Pezuela, Vic negotiates an immunity deal with ICE to vanquish Beltran at last, and the skeletons come tumbling out of the closet. Will Vic pay for his sins in the end? The answer lies in the ultimate betrayals, climactic action and devastating series finale.
It might not have enjoyed the fanfare of some, but across seven seasons, The Shield has emerged as one of the finest cop dramas that US TV has produced. It’s not quite The Wire, but it’s got plenty of its own to recommend it anyway.
This boxset features the seventh and final season of The Shield, and it once more has as its centrepiece Michael Chiklis as Vic Mackey. Mackey is a brilliant creation, a hard-edged cop who, you could politely say, works in the grey areas to get the job done. Naturally, there are consequences to this, and season seven has the impact of Mackey’s ways spread right across it.
It all particularly comes to a head in the episodes that bring The Shield to a close, and these prove to be the highlight of a very strong final season. There’s no chance it’s going to be spoiled here, but believe what people have been saying: the ending to The Shield is flat-out brilliant, and a fitting testament to the quality of what’s gone before. It’s three-dimensional drama of real substance.
It’s sad to see The Shield come to the end of its journey, but it leaves us with a complete, rounded, gritty and uncompromising drama, that surely will win a growing fanbase as more and more discover it on DVD. And season seven? It’s hard to think of a better send off for the show… ---Jon Foster

The finale of season 5 left me in shock for days. I honestly didn`t believe that could be topped, then I watched season 6 and was again blown away. Waiting for season 7 was torture as it was delayed due to the writers strike in Hollywood. Knowing that this was definately the final season (the show was originally only going to run for 5 seasons) I wanted something special. I was not disappointed. From the opening scene until the very last moment I felt like I was been beaten with a sensory sledge hammer. This season not only has the best ending in TV ever, it has moments that must have every writer and director in Hollywood pulling their hair out knowing they will never match the quality of work on show here.
The actors all deliver powerhouse performances. The script is flawless. the cinematography would not be out of place in the best Hollywood movie,
the direction is superb. All in all this is not only the best cop show ever it is the best TV ever made. If you have never watched The Shield do yourself a favour buy the first seasonand be ready for a ride you will never forget. It is a brutal, tragic, touching, funny rollercoaster ride featuring some of the most horrible anti heroes ever. You too will be an addict.
With forced retirement looming, Vic manages to secure a future by stealing a "blackmail box" belonging to Cruz Pezuela, a figurehead for the Mexican cartel. But while Vic plays 'gun-for-hire' with Cruz, he has to contend with the Armenian mob and his old partner Shane, who have greenlit his family following the Money Train heist. To keep Vic's job and protect their families, himself, Shane and Ronnie engineer a gang war to deal with both sides at once... and this is just episode one!
Everything that you hoped for from a Shield finale is delivered perfectly, thanks to the freedom that the writers are given, knowing this is the final season. Characters are taken to places they have never been before and their final destinations, although somehow inevitable, are shown in a stark, uncompromising fashion. But rather than going for shock value, the writers have concentrated on the characters and what they would most realistically do. The final two-parter is an emotional rollercoaster, crammed with irony and fantastic acting, which held no major surprises, but was extremely satisfying to watch.
While Michael Chiklis is undoubtedly the star and a solid, strong actor, the real highlight of the last few seasons has, for me, been Walton Goggins as Shane. His character has become one of the most interesting and conflicted I've ever seen and the heights to which Walton takes this adds an edge that no other has achieved on the show. I can't wait to see where he goes next, as with all of the cast and crew of the show.
There is a terrific family feel to the workings of 'The Shield' - demonstrated by the special features which are just as emotional as the episodes themselves. As usual there are deleted scenes and commentaries, but really do you need any more when there's a show of this caliber racing towards it's conclusion? I think not. R.I.P. Shield, we'll miss you.
