The Shield: Pilot (2002)
A climatic first episode which determined the Rest of the Beautfully Written Series
The Episode starts off in a paradox comparison where the Captain 'David Aceveda' is giving a speech behind a podium explaining his recent stake on the 'Farmington Division Police Department' where then you can see 'The Strike Team', a special anti-gang team, chase down a suspect through a Supermarket which they get to them in a back-alley where 'Vic Mackey' the Strike Team's leader punches the suspect a couple of times. He then pulls down the suspect's pants and underwear and says 'Looks like you got a third 'nad there. Let me get that for you' and rips off a stash of drugs which is taped to the suspect's testicles. The episode later goes into a trend of the new member of the Strike Team 'Terry Crowley' is asked by Vic Mackey's arch-enemy Captain David Aceveda to be his eyes and ears of Vic and to testify on corruption charges against him, he reluctantly agrees. Then the storyline shows some preliminary Sub-Plots and then while Vic has a Backyard-BBQ he explains that there is a drug-dealer they need to nab that night named 'Two-Time'. A few more sub-plots hit the way and it comes time for the arrest. With Kid Rock's 'Ball and in the ball bangy dang diga-diggy' song playin' where they break through second floor window and Vic and Shane (Vic's best friend) strafe along and see Two-Times flushing his drugs down the toilet where he fires at Shane and Vic - missing them. Shane dives down and Vic strafes left both firing at Two-Times -- killing him. Terry enters the house and Vic takes a cloth and grab's Two-Time's gun and fires once into Terry's face, where he then leans over him in tsk's.
This is the best Series premiere I have seen for any drama.
Feel free to enjoy the show.
