The Shield

A word of acknowledgment needs to go out to strausmouse whose occasional ranting about how good the show The Shield is stuck in my mind last night when Tivo happened to record the pilot episode of that show. I watched it and found myself wanting to see more. I ran to Target but they didn’t have it on DVD. I finally managed to get Season 1 on DVD at f.y.e. and I watched 3 more episodes before going to bed last night.

Good show.

So, the score so far: vickyandnorm, 2 (House, The Office); strausmouse, 1 (The Shield).

I don’t know whether to love these guys for introducing me to great shows, or hate them for the same reason.
