Shield, The: Season 6 (2007)
Genre: Crime Drama Series
Starring: Michael Chiklis ("The Commish" • Fantastic Four), Walton Goggins (The World's Fastest Indian • Chrystal)
Created By: Shawn Ryan (Writer / Producer of "Angel")
Overview: In a precinct in a rough L.A. neighbourhood, we follow the lives of those who work there, from the corrupt cops to the straight and narrow. In Season 6, Vic tries to set up an escape plan for forced retirement while looking into the death of one of their own.
Let's start with heavy bias: "The Shield" is one of the best shows even put on television. If you like daring, well it's edgy. Swearing and nudity are not taboo issues, and consistently we're dealing with definitely adult situations, what with Vic's moral compass ever tipping south. It's also multi-layered. We see the streets, the different roles that different police officers have, from 'Unis' to those on the Strike Team to detectives to captains, and how the police force's daily activities seeps into city matters and how city council uses the political side of the police to their advantage. yet at it's core "The Shield" is about the individual lives of the men and women, and character development is key.
A show so intense and unique can't be for everyone, and I've seem my share of reviews that hate the gritty shaky quality of the cinematography, or who find it too graphic, but I'm not one of those. I love it, and I'll keep loving it until the end, which sadly is next season. Season 6 is the shortest at only ten episodes, but it's still full of forward momentum and suspense enough that I don't watch it before bed because I know that any episode has to ability of getting me all wired up.

It's intense, it's urban-gritty. If you like that sort of thing, welll this is your sort of thing.
