The Shield

Over the summer we decided to pick a show that we could watch when our daughter was asleep and having a Netflix account, we have many choices to choose from. We decided on The Shield, created by Shawn Ryan and Kurt Sutter as (Sons Of Anarchy), one of many Executive producers for show, an FX original show.

The Shield is about an experimental division of the Los Angeles Police Department, a group of detectives called the Strike Team, a four-man anti-gang unit based on the LAPD’s real-life Rampart Division CRASH unit.

The Strike Team uses a variety of illegal methods such as planting drugs, confessions and framing criminals in order to prosecute. Oh ya, did I mention they make a profit on all their shady dealings.

The members of the Strike Team struggle to cover up their crimes. The occasional slip up, the surprise twist always bring the team closer to being caught.

I can’t tell you how it ends, since we are still watching the show. (well I do, I have read spoilers) Each show brings an abundance of action, blood and real life drama (well if you live in the hood).

You may recognize some of the actors n the show, Michael Chilkis (Vegas/Fanatastic Four), Walter Googins(Justified/Sons Of Anarchy),CCH Pounder (Sons Of Anarchy NCIS: New Orlean) and Kenneth Johnson (Burn Notice/Sons Of Anarchy).

If you love action packed Cop shows, then I definitely recommend The Shield.
