You know the drill. If there isn't a dedicated thread, post it here. Any TV goes, cartoons, live action, it's fair game. The Shield Season One Nowhere else to put this so I guess I'll post TV season reviews here too. Great first season to a show and one of the few television shows I've ever watched where I felt connected to characters and couldn't wait to see where the plot went next. Nearly everyone is fantastic (with the exception of the female beat cop, her acting was pretty awful) and there never seemed to be a dull moment. My favorite show, Justified, seems positively slow by comparison to The Shield where every episode is presenting new cases and it never focuses on the outside character stuff so much it forgets to deliver on the investigative/cop stuff. The last couple episodes were fantastic and that season finale was a wonderful way to wrap things up, forcing everyone to test their allegiances and showing just how far even the good cops will go. There were a couple threads that went nowhere (why did Chiklis kiss the beat cop? That went absolutely nowhere. What happened to the hooker's baby?) but overall, a solid start to the series.
