On a whim I bought the boxset of TV's The Shield for £50 off the ebay. Seemed expensive, but also not bad compared to stores.

Anyway, what are your thoughts on my purchase - good series? I couldn't really get into The Wire, but having watch the first ep, this looks promising.

  1. Misc
  2. Box Set

this is next on my list after the sopranos boxset which Im working my way through atm-looks very good to me-never seen the wire either-would be interested to know what you think of it.

i love the wire, i think it was an excellent seires, one of my favourites, takes a while to get used to the dialogue but it pays off.

the shield ive seen a few episodes here and there but never really got in to it.

im looking for a new tv show to watch and I might settle on the sopranos, not sure yet though, any recommendations?

i have watched the Wire and Soprano's boxsets... amazing programmes !!!! not seen teh Shield


The shield is easily up there with the best of them. Instantly more accessible than The Wire too.


Good buy..........quality program

One of the best cop shows ever.
You will have to ration yourself with the episodes - I ended up watching 5 or 6 episodes a day

crap program

The Shield is excellent. Much better than The Wire (although that is still a decent show, the first few seasons were the best).
