The Best Final Act
3 June 2011 | by See all my reviews

I was a rabid fan of "Homocide: Life on the streets." I have every episode released on DVD. I still remember seeing the first episode of "The Shield" on FX and, within seconds, being totally hooked (it drew me in like the opening sequence of "Raiders of the Lost Ark"). I've watched every episode since, most several times.

This final season was the crowning achievement to a wonderful series, bringing closure - if that's the word - to the story line and characters. Some will be more satisfied than others, depending on how you related to the players, but I suspect no one will be disappointed. And, incidentally, "Homicide" ran seven seasons as well. I guess great - no, seminal - cop shows are made to run seven seasons (perhaps to avoid "jumping the shark").

Michael Chiklis has left his mark on the canon of both the genre and great television with this role. My hat is off to him for an unforgettable portrait of someone who represents the ambiguity in us all.

Like "Homicide," "The Shield" is something every fan should own - in its entirety - on DVD. So, please, don't wait for the inevitable boxed set - it might never come. And, if you're a true fan, these DVDs will be well-worn if it does come out.
