The Shield
08/03/09 at 10:08 PM by Jonathan Bautts
Wow. Holy wow. Just finished the seventh and last season of The Shield and what a conclusion to one of the best shows ever made. It was darn near perfect. Vic is one of the most engrossing antiheroes written. You somehow keep rooting for him, no matter how heinous his acts are, but at the end you see how black his soul really is and wonder how he could have conned you in the first place. It fits along nicely with one of the show’s primary themes – nothing is ever black and white, only gray, and justice in the truest sense of the word is not possible, at least not in the here and now.

All the character acting, gripping writing and unique directing style were consistently high throughout its run, more so than any other show I’ve seen. It honestly is a shame it never found a larger audience or the recognition it deserved. The Shield has set the bar awfully high for all of TV, especially crime dramas, and currently sits as my second favorite show. Lost, the ball’s in your court now.
