TV Tonight: "The Shield"

TV Tonight: "The Shield"

I'm a latecomer to "The Shield," the FX cop drama that starts its sixth season tonight. So I'll defer to those who have been following the series from the beginning when they say it's an intense and hypnotic show. One TV Guide critic even put it on par with "The Sopranos" as some of the year's best TV.

The premise of this season is strong: Tough cop Vic Mackey (Michael Chiklis) is driven by a desire to find out who killed Lem, a member of his Strike Team. Viewers, meanwhile, already know the killer: Lem's best friend and fellow Strike Team member Shane. As a bonus, Oscar winner Forest Whitaker will be around for several episodes as an investigator trying to expose Vic as a dirty cop. It makes me want to hurry up and get those previous seasons off my Netflix queue. To see a promo for the episode,

Forest Witaker will pull me in for sure. I'm a latecomer as well, but am looking forward to catching up.

I love this show as well. Was Whitaker on the end of the last season as well? I'm sure the last episode i saw (like a month ago)had Whitaker trying to expose Vic. That was the last episode they showed. It's on quite late here so i never know if the season has ended or they've just taken it off the air. ~...she's poison in the well, razors in the apple core...~
