Many Thanks

I watched the first 3 episodes and sold it on Amazon marketplace! Maybe it suffered because i'd just finished The Wire but it seemed very cliched and derivative to me, and some of the acting was a bit rubbish...

Having said that, really good price for 7 seasons so HOT... you could always get your cash back on Amazon if you don't like it

What channel did you see The Shield show on first or did you already have it on DVD? Will it be repeated?

It was first on channel 5 and was banned in a few us states!! not sure if it will be repeated from the start but trust me its well worth watching.. i know a few us cop series can be ott but this is stunning from the characters to the way its filmed.

Andym1000, all to our own, I watched the wire, all of it, and enjoyed it; however, IMO nothing has come close to the Shield, not just other cop programs, but any TV show. Brilliant stuff. Buy, watch and sell on for £20.

Totally agree this is TV as good as it gets.

Is August a bit too soon for me to buy this as an early Chrissie present....?
Sure as hell won't be anything good on then.

Many thanks mate



Dont agree with this but everyone to their own. I just finished wire and bought this for 54, n season 3 at the moment and im finding it better than the wire. nothing compared to 24, sopranos or prison break tho. gutted about price diff. hope im still able to sell on for 40

once im finished that is

the wire?! postman pat's better than that show.

needs to be blu ray

Its very good although not always enjoyable. The ending was pretty good imo. Much better than the ridiculous Sopranos ending.

I started watching this 3 weeks ago and am already on Season 4 , very enjoyable .

WICKED THANKS MATE ORDERED MINE NOW ... ALSO USED THE CODE ..... FTSL15-1...... GIVES YOU 15% OFF SO IN THE END I PAYED
£39.10

Best thing on TV

Bought also at £39.10, and quidco hopefully.

Loved "The Wire", expecting great things from The Shield too.

Currently halfway through the excellent Rome, why can't the UK make good TV?

Forgot to add: Thanks OP.

Slightly off topic but did anyone else see the Shield 'reunion' on 'Lie To Me' last week? I counted six cast members of The Shield.

I'm a huge fan of most american tv shows (i.e. The Sopranos, The Wire, etc...) but for me this is THE best series ever. Took me a couple of episodes to get into it, but once I did I was completely hooked. I think it has the edge over The Wire, which is a bit more of a slow burn.

Would recommend this show to anyone who likes cop shows - and at less than £40 for every episode ever made, it's amazing value.

Great series. Just a heads up: I'm not sure about this boxset, but on others some episodes were edited, which is quite annoying. The only way to get it as it was on tv is individual seasons, which gets expensive sadly. There was also a sequence error in the boxset (again, not sure if it's this one) where an episode with big drama came an episode early.
All in all, an amazing amazing series, especially as they don't seem to want to release it on blu-ray

Erm what? The Shield beats the poorly constructed Prison Break into the ground. The first season was good but Prison Break just made a mockery of the characterisation it built up. 24 was repetitive by the end, almost a chore to watch at times with Dana bloody Walsh.

It wouldn't convert to HD.

I can't get the code to work Any help?

Even the individual series box sets are edited - seasons 5 and 6 were supposed to have 90 minute long final episodes but they were cut to 60 minutes on the DVDs... I watched the finales online. Really annoying as it's not as though there wasn't room on the disc for the full episode...

HOT
brilliant show. oh so tempted...

Yeah, good to see them all again but it was a bit of a silly idea really as after watching 7 seasons of them together made it difficult to imagine them as different characters... I had to rewind a few times to follow what was going on.

I know what you mean, Walton Goggins was in Predators and I couldn't see him as anything other than Shane Vendrell.

one reviewer in amazon suggests that only the finale of season 5 was cut - can't find much info on running times of season 6 on the web

From memory that's about right. Its a poor state of affairs that you can download better content for free than what you get when you buy the box set - go figure

I've got season 6 (individual) and it had a 60 min finale, IMDB indicates this as correct (it has runtime info on all episodes btw), looks like I was wrong on that count. Still no excuse for them to cut season 5's finale, without giving any spoilers it sounds like they glossed over some important plot points!
