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.

 

We all know how critical it is to keep independent voices alive and strong on the Internet. Your donation will help PopMatters stay viable through these changing and challenging times.
