When the second season of The Shield finally came to five I thought that it could never be as shocking, exciting, thought provoking and intriguing as the groundbreaking first season. But it was. The second season is a rollercoaster of emotions in which you feel for each of the characters as they fight against crime (the respectable and clean cut Dutch and Claudette), corruption (the supposedly corruption free and politically minded Captain of the station David Aceveda) and try to survive in the troubled neighbourhood of a Los Angeles area.
One of the best things about The Shield is its gritty and graphic realism. Many cop shows claim to be this, but The Shield is the only one I have seen that can really live up to the statement. The creator Shawn Ryan manages to do this through the infamous strike team led by Detective Vic Mackey. Him and his team of detectives push the boundaries of legal police work and are often on the edge of becoming the very people they seek to put behind bars.
If you enjoyed the inventive and original plots of season one then you will not be disappointed by season two. The episodes can be watched over and over again and they never become mundane or boring. If you have never seen The Shield before then you really should watch the first season. After that I know you'll want to buy this straight away.
One more thing. If for some reason you missed series 3 on TV (which could only be excused if you were isolated form humanity for the whole time it ran. Then you may be wondering if series 3 could ever live up to the legacy of the previous instalments of The Shield. I have the very simple answer you've been looking for...

The Shield is one of them rare gems that has gone virtually un-noticed among the populus but the stories of the Farmington division of the LAPD, and in particular those of the Strike Team: Vic, Shane, Ronnie and Lem are compulsive viewing for anyone who has ever wanted to watch what it would probably be like to ride with the police of LA. The Strike Team is where the corruption lies but these are basically good cops who decide to bend (and sometimes break) the law in order to see that justice prevails. On the side these 4 cops also endeavour to finance their 'retirement fund' by collecting rent from drug-dealers for working on their turf, pocketing in-pounded drugs from raids and stealing the Armenian mobs drug money. Season 1 was mind blowing but season 2 just picks up the frenetic batton and sprints for season 3 which I do hope is as compulsive as the previous two. Nothing I have ever seen matches this in the way of entertainment and reality. The soundtrack is amazing also; using all styles of music ranging from hip hop to rock. Buy this and the only regret you'll have is when the last episode ends and you'll have to wait until the next one becomes available.

After watching the immensely powerful first series of the Shield I was interested to see if series 2 could continue at the same pace. If anything, it actually intensifies everything that was good about series 1.

The main plot of series 2 is that Vic and his team learn about a huge money laundering operation run by the Armenian mob that passes through Los Angeles several times a year. The next money train is due in a few weeks so the Strike Team decide to rob it. Vic's boys are walking closer to the edge than ever before and the audacious robbery will make dangerous enemies of the Armenians, the FBI and Vics own colleagues. If that isn't enough to worry about there is a civilian auditor making herself at home in the barn, determined to uncover corrupt police officers. Captain Aceveda is still gunning for the Strike team over the fatal shooting of a cop and Vic's autistic kids need money for therapy. As always, each episode deals with several gruesome crimes besides the main sub-plot and we see gangland shootings, drugs, rapes and kidnappings ably investigated by Dutch and Claudette (the excellent CCH Pounder).
