THE SHIELD entered its seventh and final season with great expectations and smashed through them with each new episode. Always faithful to the show's inspired noir roots, Shawn Ryan and the creative ensemble drove the Strike Team through higher levels of dramatic storytelling and complex moral quandaries, with Michael Chiklis's timeless and tortured "Vic Mackey" always at the rotten core. The season finale is an episodic masterpiece, as extraordinarily satisfying as it was inevitable - the perfect ending to a landmark series.

THE SHIELD is not just another cop show. Visceral and raw, hard-hitting and complex, this is a program where the unresolved tension between daily police activity and ethical transgression redefines the genre. Michael Chiklis delivers a powerhouse performance with each episode and helps to make THE SHIELD "appointment television." This was particularly true in 2004, when corruption began to corrode the core of the strike force in episodes reminiscent of John Huston's classic film THE TREASURE OF THE SIERRA MADRE.
