mini review

the shield is one of the best series to grace tv in the last few years. the hard hitting gritty action never lets up and you just know youre in for a ride by the end of the very first episode. a highlight of the show was Forest Whitakers appearance in series 5, it made for compelling viewing as you always seem to side with vic depite him clearly being the bad guy. the show touches on many topics and handles them well, weve seen rascism homosexuality and numerous other hot topics. while it may not be an accurate depiction of gang violence and police attempts to combat it the shield certainly keeps you entertained and on the edge of your seat. def worth more than 5 stars ;)
