Edward James Olmos,
The story of an inner-city Los Angeles police precinct where some of the cops aren't above breaking the rules or working against their associates to both keep the streets safe and their self-interests intact.Written by
Michael Chiklis (Vic Mackey), who played the leader of The Barn's Strike Team, would go on to join the cast of Fox's TV series Gotham for its second season as Captain Nathaniel Barnes where he and Detective James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) put together a crime fighting team called the Strike Force.

The turn of the camera, the live "feel", and the acting and writing - top notch all the way.
It was a street war. The Cowboys vs The Indians. The Police vs The Bad guys. Good vs Evil.
Right? Wrong! The writing is terrific, and you'll have to decide where the good, the bad, and the ugly is. In a way, it mirrors (or creates?) "real" life ! Most TV shows are bland, because they will serve up the sludge of lowest common denominator. NOT THE SHIELD!
~The characters are great, just superb. The way the camera action brings to life the docu-drama feel really seems to give The Shield a tough and mean edge. The viewer is right there with the acting, and raw acting!, all the way. So, top draw, well done to the creator! And all involved.
