To match Play.com's Deal Of The Day yesterday.. and Irish customers don't have to pay Play.com's ridiculous exchange rate!

Paid £42.50 for this off HMV a year ago.. and it's never been close to that price since.. and it pops up at £30 twice in one week!

Synopsis
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. The other detectives and cops on the force disapprove of the team's methods, while the precinct head, Captain David Aceveda (Benito Martinez), is just as corrupt as Mackey. The stoic, upright Detective Claudette Wyms (CCH Pounder, ER), who understands both sides of the game, provides a much needed balance and rationality to the mix. 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 all seven seasons of the series.

Play.Com Deal of the day, by the time i came home and then found the post on this site it had expired :-(

Shame as would have had quico discount too :-(

Heat though for this!

managed to get it from play yesterday, but will add heat for those who missed out.


I don't know what to do. Picked up the first season of the Shield and don't know whether to risk it and pick it up at this price without watching any of it. On the last season of the Sopranos and finished the Wire so need something else to fill the void

go for it Johnny. The Shield is different but as good as The Wire and the Sopranos. Brasher, harder hitting and maybe even has the most jaw dropping moments of all 3 programmes.

the sheild is an excellent void filler for someone that just watched the wire and the sopranos, it is definately cast in the same mold as them and is a good show to boot. also, hot.

Out of stock so you may have to wait a bit for it.

Would also recommend Homicide for fans of The Wire - read the reviews on Amazon!

One word - Scorchio.

100% you should buy this - it's not quite as in-depth as the other shows you mentioned but it's a brilliant, brilliant watch, and it only continues to improve - Seasons 4, 5 and 7 in particular are some of the best TV I have ever seen

EXPIRED. Now showing £58.97

Cheers for your feedback, at 30 quid I guess it's worth the risk

Doh, too slow again...
