If you haven't yet seen Season 5 of "The Shield", it's one of the best yet. Outstanding performances from all concerned make this riveting, edge-of-your-seat, exciting, and tormenting stuff.
DO NOT WATCH THE DVD 'EXTRAS' BEFORE YOU HAVE WATCHED ALL THE EPISODES ON ALL THE DISCS. They contain spoilers. Spoilers so important that they ruin the series finale. Pointless, and what a nonsensical waste!
Otherwise, if you avoid the 'extras' (at least before you finish watching the series), you'll agree that this is superb stuff. People have claimed that some of it has been edited down. I never saw the original US version, so can't comment, but without knowing that it was edited, I'd never have guessed.
This is gripping. One of the best seasons of a consistently brilliant show.
I give this 4 stars out of 5 because the spoilers... well, they spoil it.
