5.0 out of 5 stars A very additive TV show, 23 Aug. 2004
Unlike most of you, I was a late comer to the series. I was flicking the channels one night in the summer of 2003 when I saw the Shield. It was in the 3rd episode of the 2nd season and after 30 seconds (yes, 30 seconds), I was hooked. I have never seen a show that is so graphic and realistic before and that is the show's appeal.
All the actors in the series are brilliant. The standouts are Michael Chiklis as Vic Mackey, the head of the strike team who bends the rules (regularly) to uphold the law; CCH Pounder (who has appeared in films such as Face/Off) as Claudette Wyms, a moral cop who is the opposite to Mackey's corrupt style. The star of the show, however, is Walton Goggins as Shane, a cop who is narrow minded and is ten times worse than Mackey. The partnership between Vic and Shane is not one of "good cop, bad cop" but "bad cop, even badder cop".
All the episodes are brilliant, but the best one is the one where Shane loses the team's car which has drugs they were delivering to a gang leader and the team has to find it before the police captain Acevada does.
There are great cop shows out there such as Law & Order, CSI and NYPD Blue, but the Shield is the most graphic one out there. If you're a fan of cop's shows, you have to buy this.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best programmes on TV, 28 Aug. 2003
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The states have provided us with great tv programmes recently: Law and Order, Alais, Boomtown and CSI. However, at the very top of the list is the West Wing. Season 2, part 2 adopts a more serious tone as the President Bartlet prepares to go public with his multiple slcerosis.
Highlights include "17 people" in which Bartlet tells Toby about his disease and the season finale "Two Cathedrals" in which Bartlet, after attending the funeral of a dear friend and telling the world about his MS, going to a press conference to the tune of "Brothers in Arms" by Dire Straits.
If you are looking for funny monents,you have got to see CJ's meeting with the Organisation of Cartographers for Social Equality in "Somebody's Going to Emergency, Somebody's Going to Jail".
The West Wing is educating, witty and brilliantly funny. Roll on season 3!
