Re: The Shield
I think it was the best all-time TV drama in the category of "hard core". Approached historically by The Sopranos and recently by Breaking Bad, but not surpassed by either. The production quality, writing, acting, each week was like a mini-major-motion-picture. I mean, 50 minutes of theater-quality entertainment I would have gotten from a 3-to-4 star movie. Fantastic show.
