Netflix: The Shield


Hi Guys and welcome back to Playstation Base!  I hope you are all feeling fine!

So, I have spoken a bit about games since my revival, but gaming isn’t all that I’ve been upto so I thought I would post a few entries about the things I have been watching on Netflix!

the shieldThe past couple of months have been filled with hit American TV series The Shield.  Running between 2002 and 2008 and boasting 7 series, The Shield tells the story of an LAPD strike team tasked with fighting gang culture in a fictional town known as Farmington.  ‘The Farm’ is notoriously rough.  Drugs, gun violence are frequent crimes within the area and it is up to Vic Mackey and his strike team to bring them down.  Vic and his strike-team are textbook bent cops; stealing, dealing drugs and killing people isn’t unheard of from them at all, which I guess sets the premice for the show. 

The Shield isn’t your average run of the mill cop show.  The storylines are well written and fluid, and for a cop show is very fast paced and exciting with edge-of-your-seat viewing.

I myself have just started Season 6 and am still really enjoying the show.  To say that the Season 5 finale was one of those jaw-dropping moments would be an understatement and I cannot wait to see what else is in store for Vic and co. in the last 2 Seasons! 

There isn’t really much else to say without revealing spoilers, so watch it yourself!  Like I say, I’m really enjoying it and at times it even replaces my precious hours of playing Playstation.

Check back soon for more Netflix suggestions and my most anticipated games of the coming year!
