5.0 out of 5 stars As the pressure grows for Strike Force, the criminals aren't the only one's feeling the heat., 28 Oct. 2012
This review is from: The Shield : Series 2 [DVD] [2004] (DVD)
The Shield's second season starts where the series left off - tension is high both inside and outside of the station with Farmington still reeling from riots and Vic and his crew are still cracking skulls.

Some of the episodes are a little weaker than the first seasons, but the majority are still strong and all are enjoyable. This season also benefits from a compelling story arc, when The Strike Force stumble across the Armenian mafia's money stash and decide to rob it - making for a cliff hanger that will have you chomping at the bit to start season 3.

As if staying one step ahead of those that would put a stop to his 'extra- curricular' activities, Vic's home life also ads to his problems. With pressure at home growing, trouble on the street and past problems starting resurface, the criminals aren't the only one's feeling the heat in Farmington.

The second season isn't without its flaws (for starters Vic seems to grow a conscience, which doesn't seem to sit quite right considering what went on in season 1), but with gritty yet very enjoyable story lines plus great camera work and direction which puts you in the heart of the action, The Shield makes for compelling viewing.
