Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
This gritty, intense, made-for-cable series redefines the cop show for the cable era -- a tribute to the fantastic work done by creator-chief writer Shawn Ryan and star Michael Chiklis, whose characterization of crooked L.A. police detective Vic Mackey earned him an Emmy in Season 1. After that groundbreaking first season (which began with Mackey's cold-blooded murder of an undercover cop who had infiltrated his corrupt task force), The Shield reached greater heights in the 13 episodes of Season 2. The overriding plotline centered around Vic's discovery of a drug ring's secret "money train" and his squad's preparations to take it down and divide the spoils among themselves. But equally compelling themes evolve: Captain David Acevada (Benito Martinez) makes a Faustian alliance with Mackey in an attempt to bolster his political ambitions; Vic makes increasingly desperate attempts to reconcile with his estranged wife; Detective Claudette Wyms (CCH Pounder) increasingly suspects that Mackey's squad is involved in drug-related crimes; and Vic's fellow officer and former mistress, Danielle Sofer (Catherine Dent), gradually becomes disenchanted. All this -- plus the relentless interference of a grandstanding civilian adviser (Lucinda Jenney) -- is played out in a style that vaults clear over NYPD Blue into Sopranos territory. The Shield brims with graphic violence, coarse language, seedy characters, and steamy sex scenes. But nothing is done solely to be exploitive or sensational: Ryan and his fellow writers have tried to create a realistically rendered, deftly shaded picture of contemporary police work in a dangerous inner-city environment. And the extent to which they have succeeded is what makes The Shield one of television's most compelling series.
