Possibly my favorite drama ever
I hate giving 10’s because nothing is perfect, but a 9 doesn’t do it justice. There have been a lot of 9’s over the years but this show is even better than those.
Over 7 seasons The Shield consistently provides an incredibly diverse group of characters and more intrigue than most TV has ever provided. The web Vic and his team weaves is always winding in all sorts of directions and is often on the verge of breaking. Vic and the rest of the strike team use their authority and cunning to untangle it as best they can, almost always using tactics that are ethically questionable at best.
The whole thing really gets you sucked in and you’re always torn because rooting for Vic is easy, facing what he really is is not. What’s right and what’s wrong? When do the lines begin to blur? It’s not always clear, but it’s incredibly entertaining to watch.
The other thing I really love about the show is how there’s always another separate case being pursued by Dutch Waggenbach and company. It keeps each episode going in different directions and the case is always interesting or has an unexpected twist when it’s resolved. I think another thing that separates this show from all the others is that you get your murder/rape case that you get everywhere else, but that only compiles about 30% of each episode and the rest is even better than that. Shows like CSI and Law & Order can’t even touch the content this show brings, and I haven’t even mentioned the gritty, realistic style it’s shot and written in. Absolutely unique and done believably and well. The finale? It’s as good as you’re ever going to get.
It really is a stellar show. I would say there was perhaps one season I thought was only above average (not exactly a strike against it) but the rest was a thrill ride that was so gripping I don’t know if there’s more than a handful of other shows that have ever matched it in that capacity. You’re always in for a surprise when you watch it and the characters grow on you, some of them whether you want them to or not. Recommended as highly as possible.
THE SHIELD IS THE BEST SHOW EVER MADE, VERY UNDERATED
Well i think we have to talk the kheys…….
Ok so The shield is simply the best series in history (a shouya better than BB yes).
This series is a real experience that you have to live in your life, so if it’s not done yet you absolutely have to watch the shield, it’s a pure masterpiece worthy of the best series of all time
This series that is the shield was the answer to my search for a series surpassing breaking bad, who would have thought that I had to look back 20 years to find this masterpiece
It’s a pure masterpiece that you only see once and shame on you for not having seen it knowing that it is celebrating its 20th anniversary
Many characters are out of the ordinary (well helped by the all brilliant actors) and all of them are really excellent. You get so attached to the 4 main heroes it’s crazy.
The episodes and seasons are of a simply bluffing coherence giving the scenario a prodigious richness. The dialogues are very well written which gives the series a rendering more real than life. We alternate subtly between the dramatic and the comic. It’s raw, it’s violent, it’s funny but above all how good it is!
All seasons are equal and seasons 5 and 7 are also masterpieces (same level as BB season 5 or GOT season 4).
The writing is divine, the characters captivating, in turn we can adore them then hate them, each having their virtue and their vice taken to the extreme. Even more for the hero / anti-hero Vic Mackey: a loving father on a daily basis (a wife and children he truly loves, despite relationships that inevitably wither away over time) but a real ruthless brute in his work (often “justified”, never appreciated by his superiors).
What makes the series so special and fun to watch is that not all cops are good cops. They are not simple crooks looking for corruption all the time, on the contrary, these crooked cops have an exacerbated humanity that hooks the viewer to his television and gives him this feeling of lack when an episode ends. In a subtle way, we penetrate quite easily into the heads of the characters to discover them both with their strengths and their weaknesses, and during the episodes each character reveals himself a little more to us.
Then the screenwriters did a great job of meticulously written writing while reserving exciting stories for us with stunning twists that will take your breath away over the 7 seasons simply the series does not forget its batch of images at the same time Percussive and Shocking in a very realistic way in the red light districts of Los Angeles reserved for an informed public while reserving its share of humor for the Replicas which make Conclusion.
DO YOU NEVER WANT TO BE BORED OF A SERIES?, THE SHIELD IS YOUR FRIEND
The production work “handheld camera is impeccable and immerses us perfectly in the heart of the action. We are an integral part of the Strike Team (name of the team of the 4 main heroes who will often be turned upside down by its members than by its situations) and stress becomes our daily lot. Over the seasons, the tension rises more and more to reach its climax in a final episode which brings the series to a wonderful close.
I’ve watched series, a hell of a lot even and The Shield is for me, and by far, the best I’ve ever watched. The writing itself is excellent, every detail, every action is never random. What I’m trying to express here is that the first episode will affect the whole series, and it’s like that for all episodes! In addition, the series provides us with characters with real personalities and some even, thanks to the actors who play them, are endowed with a very big charisma. And to add a layer, the music is always well chosen and will serve perfectly to make you feel the emotion not sought by the directors.
IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR A SERIES AS POWERFUL AND CAPTIVATING AS BREAKING BAD, THE SHIELD IS YOUR FRIEND
To sum up, the shield is first of all a well-planted universe, well-drawn characters, hard-hitting dialogues, well-constructed plots and twists that are often well seen. The staging will evolve in the right direction over the years, at first hyper-nervous and abusing the handheld camera, with a cut-out that was too bumpy before becoming more readable, not hesitating to let the shots last
will also add that The shield has the best ending that a series can dream of, with each character seeing their storyline finished, in a very nihilistic way, as usual with Ryan & Kurt Sutter, another screenwriter of the series. A moving end rich in emotions to which you will not remain unscathed so well it is orchestrated.
A page has been turned with the end of “The shield” and I hope one day to be able to find such quality and such aggressiveness in a television project. In short, The Shield is a cult, violent and uncompromising series that surpasses its generation.
You can watch the series on Mycanal in HD (for $7) with additional comments on the seasons you plan to watch (watch out for spoilers) and believe me the price is worth it for the shield.
