The French Shield, not at all like the Wire.
21 August 2013 | by dmoringparrisSee all my reviews

This series has nothing in common with the wire. The criminals are not central to the plot. There are no complicated drug cartels. The only continuous theme is the dysfunction of the police unit. They have gone so far over the line that it's hard to take anyone seriously. This show is somewhat entertaining but has no overarching theme or intrigue to make it stand out among other cop shows. For a french show to crossover into the American market it must bring a level of complexity that is simply not present in this show. French film makers have nailing this genre for years (Jaques Mesrine, The Prophet to name a few) and have much better to offer than this show. The French Wire it most certainly is not.
