Product Description

Now, after seven edge-of-your-seat seasons, you can finally see how this award-winning FX drama turns out. Shane resorts to kidnapping in his dangerous dance with the Armenian mob, Dutch risks everything by becoming personally involved in a homicide investigation, the Strike Team mobilizes to free a drug lord’s daughter – but it all comes down to Detective Vic Mackey confronting his greatest adversary: himself. Pressured to take down Pezuela, Vic negotiates an immunity deal with ICE to vanquish Beltran at last, and the skeletons come tumbling out of the closet. Will Vic pay for his sins in the end? The answer lies in the ultimate betrayals, climactic action and devastating series finale.

NOTE:Please use TV remote to activate Closed- Caption.


For six seasons, viewers have watched self-proclaimed "different kind of cop" Victor Samuel Mackey get away with murder, corruption, and other sick and twisted crimes too numerous to mention. In the series' penultimate episode, "Possible Kill Screen," Mackey summons from the depths of his tortured soul all of his crimes and abuses as part of an immunity deal he has cut for himself with the Feds at the expense of his unwitting partner, Ronnie (David Rees Snell). Referring to his interrogator's recorder, he asks, "How much memory does that thing got?" How do you solve a problem like Vic? Do you kill him off? Send him to prison? What would be just comeuppance for a character, who, through it all, has somehow compelled our rooting interest? "You have to pay some kind of price," his ex-wife Corrine (Cathy Cahlin Ryan) wails. Suffice to say, without spoilers, that in this Emmy-worthy final season, Vic will be held accountable in a way that does his character (and the audience's investment in him) justice and leaves this groundbreaking series' proud legacy untarnished. It is an understatement when one character notes, "There is a lot of [stuff] going down at the Barn right now." To cover their tracks from the Armenian money train robbery, Vic and his guys orchestrate a gang war that quickly spins out of control. Shane (Walton Goggins), estranged from the Team, is forced to go on the run with his pregnant wife and young son. Corrine agrees to help Dutch (Jay Karnes) and Claudette (CCH Pounder) bring Vic down. As the Strike Team sinks further in the hole they've dug for themselves, viewers can take some comic relief in Det. Steve Billings' (David Marciano) pathetic attempts to defraud the city in the wake of his "injury," and solace in the solid police work of Dutch, Claudette, Danni (Catherine Dent), and Tina (Paula Garces), who is approaching the anniversary of her first year on the force. Stand-alone cases (a missing student whose mother won't cooperate with the investigation) and personal dramas (Claudette's failing health) further enrich each gripping episode, leading to an immensely satisfying series finale that fires on all cylinders. This four-disc set includes a wealth of extras, including convivial episode commentaries, deleted scenes, a genuinely moving featurette that goes behind-the-scenes of the series finale, in which Chiklis pays heartfelt tributes to the ensemble, and a season retrospective that fittingly, gives Chiklis the last word: "We know what we have. We have one of the great television series of all time on our hands." The Shield, we salute you. --Donald Liebenson

One thing about "The Shield" is how well the show holds up on multiple viewings. It's probably because of the attention to detail and the numerous story arcs going on in any single episode. This continues to be the case in the 7th and final season of the show.

Season 7 finds Det. Vic Mackey, at the end of the line. Season 6 finished with Vic walking out on his last chance to keep his job with the LAPD and making a deal with former police Captain, now wannabe-Mayor Aciveda to take down the crooked developer who has been bankrolling Aciveda's political career. Meanwhile, Vic's strike team is beginning to come apart at the seams, all of their former bad deeds are bubbling to the surface, and on top of that Vic's ex-wife and daughter are terrified of him. Vic's a dirty cop with a perverted sense of justice. He thinks that if he can nail this crooked developer AND take down the Armenian mob, it will make up for all the horrible things he has done.

The season plays out almost as a tragedy, and is the strongest season of the Shield since the powerful season 3. Watching these episodes again, I'm most struck by the relationship between Dutch and Capt. Wymms. Both actors do terrific work as seemingly the only people in the precinct who seem to care about Mackey's abuses, and the quest to bring him down strains them to the breaking point.

The rest of the cast is solid as always. David Rees Snell, who plays Ronnie Gardocki on the strike team, shows a whole lot more here than he has in the past. But the real standouts are Michael Chiklis as Mackey, and Walt Goggins as his longtime best friend/failed protege Shane Vendrell. Goggins is outstanding in the final episodes.

Caution...spoilers ahead. I'm assuming many of the people reading this either saw the episodes on TV, watched the DVDs or both. If you're not one of those people, you may want to read this at some other time.

One thing about the bonus materials on The Shield DVDs...it's always interesting and provides excellent "peeks behind the curtain" for the series' fans. It's made clear that the show would end with "closure" on Vic Mackey...perhaps to avoid the kind of backlash that came with Tony Soprano's onion ring-munching "non-ending" at the final moments of The Sopranos, or perhaps the complexity of the Mackey character demanded closure.

In reality, series creator Sean Ryan is a genius, because whether it's immediately clear or not, Season 7 of The Shield ended with Vic Mackey munching onion rings. Please allow me to elaborate.

The set-up is that Vic is being exiled to a cubicle for the next three years, where he'll crank out a ten-page report every day, five days a week, 52 weeks a year. We see Vic look pensively out the upper-story window as squad cars, lights and sirens in full blaze, head toward some unknown crime scene. And when he stuffs his gun in his belt and walks out of the office...the last shot of the series...we see that VIC MACKEY LOOK. The only thing that has changed is his surroundings. He's still the same coiled snake that's depicted on the Strike Team calling card used throughout the series.

Three years in Vic Mackey time is nothing, and he would game the system every inch of the way. He'd hired private detectives in the past to find his wife and kids...what possible reason do we have for believing he wouldn't do it again? Vic was simply transplanted to a new playing field.

The Shield's final season is uncompromising as old ghosts continue to complicate lives in farmington. Every moment of this season remains focused on the impending end, and long time viewers are rewarded as the major plot points come to a head and pay off. This was not a quickie rush job to end the story, every member of the cast moves with deliberate and in some cases desperate urgency.
The season is topped off by one of the most satsifying endings I have seen in a television show. It's a credit to the writers and actors involved that I can pity a character I despised an episode earlier, or that a complex character like Vic Mackey can charm his way through a horrific dialogue.
If you've been watching the Shield, don't miss the final season.

Warning, spoilers ahead:

In the seventh, and final, season of FX's The Shield, everyone gets just about what they deserve to one degree or another. Whether it be crooked cop Vic Mackey (Michael Chiklis), who is working overtime to save himself along with working every angle and playing every side he can in the process, or his ex-partner Shane (Walton Goggins), whose plan to take out Vic and Ronnie (David Rees Snell) goes awry, and when he is discovered, amounts to one of the absolute best scenes and moments in the show's entire history as he goes on the run with his pregnant wife Mara (Michele Hicks). In between all that, Vic's shaky alliance with Aceveda (Benito Martinez) hits a bump as he plays the Armenians, Mexicans, Salvadorans, and the Feds all against each other, as well as seeking immunity with the help of a shady agent (Laurie Holden), which leads to a powerful moment of Vic's admition of all the things he's done over the years in the season's penultimate episode. Everything truly does come together as the episodes wind down to the end, and everyone gets what they deserve in the process. There's some sub-plots abound that include Claudette's (CCH Pounder) failing health rearing its ugly head again, Dutch's (Jay Karnes) investigation of a possible up and coming serial killer, Dani's (Catherine Dent) attempting to keep her son out of Vic's reach, and Corrine's (Cathy Cahlin Ryan) betrayal of Vic. Throughout the season, Chiklis is at his top form, and is more magnetic to watch here than ever before. That being said, The Shield as a whole has earned its spot as being a groundbreaking crime drama, and in retrospect, the show comes to a more than fitting end as well.

The Shield will be on Blu-ray?
Read some news in 2009 saying that it wouldn't be on Blu Ray simply because of the quality of the camera. You will notice its hand held a lot of the time, grainy and moves around a lot. It's a gritty looking show and they said it would be a bit pointless putting it onto BD.
