The Shield – Season One [DVD] (2002) *VERY GOOD*


Detective Vic Mackey is the leader of an elite Strike Team unit, a group of cops effective at eliminating crime but also operating under Vic’s own set of rules. But his rules sometimes cross the fine line between legal and illegal. Now the precinct has a new captain who doesn’t like Vic’s tactics and wants to bust him off the force – even as the captain finds himself going to Vic for help whenever the going gets rough.

The Shield is an American crime drama television series starring Michael Chiklis that premiered on March 12, 2002, on FX in the United States, and concluded on November 25, 2008, after seven seasons. Known for its portrayal of corrupt police officers, it was originally advertised as Rampart in reference to the true life Rampart Division police scandal, on which the show's Strike Team was loosely based. The series was created by Shawn Ryan and The Barn Productions for Fox Television Studios and Sony Pictures Television.

Several notable film actors took extended roles on the show, including Glenn Close, who was the female lead during the fourth season; Forest Whitaker, who guest starred in seasons 5 and 6; Laura Harring, in season 5; Franka Potente, in season 6; and Laurie Holden, in season 7.

The series has received critical acclaim as well as several awards and nominations. It won the Golden Globe Award for Best Television Series – Drama in 2002, and the final season won a 2008 AFI Award for best television series. In 2013, TV Guide ranked The Shield #50 on its list of the 60 Best Series of All Time. Chiklis won both the Primetime Emmy Award and Golden Globe Award for Best Lead Actor in a Drama in 2002.
