Shield: Series 5: 4DVD
Transgressing the seemingly rock-solid boundaries of regular television programming, THE SHIELD refuses the strictures of black-and-white depictions of clear-cut moral dilemmas in favour of an ambiguity that will challenge even the most jaded viewers. Detective Vic Mackey (Michael Chiklis, THE COMMISH) leads the elite Strike Team in the fictional L.A. district of Farmington, employing dubious but effective crime fighting methods as a tough, successful, but corrupt cop. 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. This collection presents the fifth series in its entirety.
