Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
The most compelling cop show on television enters its fourth year with a dramatic shift in direction that creates a new dynamic in L.A.'s Farmington District and presents corrupt cop Vic Mackey (Michael Chiklis) with his toughest challenge to date. With the previous precinct commander beginning his first term as a city councilman, hard-charging detective Monica Rawling (Glenn Close) is named captain and assigned to "the Barn." Her number one target is Antwon Mitchell (Anthony Anderson), a drug-running thug who camouflages his criminal activities with high-profile community activism. What makes the season's unified plotline so strong is the relationship Rawling establishes with Vic: she suspects he's dirty, but she also knows that he's effective, and that his Strike Team can surreptitiously accomplish things she can't attempt out in the open. Close makes a great addition to the cast, limning a well-rounded portrait of an ambitious but deeply committed professional. As in previous seasons, the 2005 episodes of this lavishly praised series juggle numerous subplots with admirable dexterity while maintaining the crackling pace and nail-biting suspense its fans have come to expect.

The Shield - Season 4 4.7 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.
Guest More than 1 year ago
The Shield is one of the most gripping shows on television and Season 4 is no exception! It was so tempting just to watch all the episodes in one sitting - I don't know how I manage when I have to wait for the new episodes to air on TV! There are plenty of other cop shows on TV but the thing that stands out to me about this show is the character development shows like Law & Order are so episodic and really neglect to delve into the main characters, but in The Shield the characters seem more real (instead of archetypes) and the longer plot line is way more compelling than an episodic format. Furthermore, the writers challenge social norms and might even make you question our own opinions regarding law enforcement. This show has everyting - action, depth, and a killer plot! The best part about Season 4 was without a doubt the introduction of Glenn Close as Captain Monica Rawlings. Who would've known she could succesfully take on this kind of role? A pleasant surprise! Having Monica and Vic work together was an unexpected but really interesting story arc, and definitely my favorite part of Season 4. Shane's misadventures in the vice unit will also keep viewers riveted. This may be the fourth season but the show is still going strong and doesn't feel old or stale at all.

Out of all the garbage on telelvision this series is hands down one of the best things to ever have happened. All of the other Cop-Drama's on television cant even begin to compare I just cant wait until season 5 is released.

I started watching this show in season 3, but season 4 quickly became my favorite with the numerous story plots that keep the audience enthralled. With the introduction of Glenn Close and Anthony Anderson, it's no wonder the streets of Farmington are about to blow up. But the thing that kept me most interested was Kenneth Johnson playing Lem. R.I.P.
