Anyway, since I have been watching the show from episode 1 I have seen some pretty gruesome and tough situations/things happen to characters etc. Which no other show would ever show and I applaud FX and the writers of The Shield for doing so as they obviously have lesser boundaries to comply with.
Michael Chiklis plays Detective Mackey to perfection he is born to play this role. The other actors also do great jobs you can tell in each episode that they make a great team and they obviously love coming to work everyday.
The Shield is a great show with a great cast who take you into their characters lives without me changing the channel on the remote.
To all the people that make The Shield keep delivering and we will come.
