When it comes to US tv NOTHING comes close to The Shield. Series 6 is currently blowing my mind on channel 5 on friday nights but my advice to every single person in the world is buy the dvd of the first series and start from there. I have never seen anything like it in my life! I loved 24, I love Heroes. But once you have watched the pilot episode of the Shield there really is no going back. I know most of you might never have heard of it, but I cannot reccomend it enough. I now think of my tv viewing as pre-The Shield and post-The Shield.

They haven't lost the NFL and prison break is no lost. Compared to The Shield, prison break is for girls. prison break, lost, csi, they're all just CBBC shows compared to The Shield.

Sorry to rain down on you Dude,but The Wire from HBO on the FX Channel makes The Shield look like Bambi in the headlights of a 60 tonner bearing down on it

The Wire is the greatest show ever created. I'm pretty sure season 5 is going to be the final one though
