Default Re: Anyone ever watch The Shield?

I liked The Shield, a lot. JDG is right in that there's no comparison with The Wire though. At the end of the day Shield was still a TV show and acted like one, Wire was something else completely.

I've heard a lot of people complain about Shield, and I think the reason is that the story isn't always great until the shocking moments happen. I think the biggest reason I liked it was that the character development was excellent to watch. I'd say very few recent shows managed it better.

By the way, Forest Whitaker, Glen Close, and Anthony Anderson have some great roles in this show.

To anyone thats watched this show, I'd say these are the top 5 most shocking moments of the show (SPOILERS):

1. Shane killing Lem
2. Aceveda forced to suck a dick
3. Shane killing himself and his family
4. Vick killing Terry
5. Vick confessing to everything and screwing over Ronnie in the process

Anything I'm missing?
