The Shield: The Complete Series Collection - Sony [$159.95]

“Detective Vic Mackey kills cops, steals money, and beats suspects,” writes PopMatters Quentin Huff. “This thing’s going to get a lot uglier before it gets better,” says Detective Vic Mackey (Michael Chiklis) in the “Back to One” episode. Gotta love that. This collection is perfect for the die-hard The Shield fan. This crime drama broke a lot of records and stereotypes with it’s convincing, layered characters and plot developments that would (some would say) blow the long-running Law & Order out of the water. In addition to all 88 episodes, and clever packaging, this collection includes 63 hours of extras from commentary to unseen footage. Sweet.
