Fantastic show. Worth buying this series just to see the excellent performance by Forest Whitaker.
Series five sees Internal Affairs cop Det. John Kavanaugh (Forest Whitaker in an astounding performance) attempt to bring down Mackey and the corrupt Strike Team. Mackey recruits a lawyer (Laura Harring) to defend him against Kavanaugh's determined efforts. But will it be enough? The charismatic Mackey strikes just the right pitch so as to be the least sympathetic antihero television has yet seen, while the controversial themes and violent nature of the content manage the effect of making audiences really think about what they're watching.
