    "Shield" Your Eyes
    Forget about this fall season.

    TV critics can't wait for 2007.

    That's when "The Shield" returns with new episodes on FX. And judging by the season premiere screened here, this relentless tour de force isn't just firing on all 8 cylinders, it's blasting on 12.

    The 10 episodes of the sixth season (starting probably in January, maybe March) focus rivetingly on fallout from the shocking murder of strike team squad member Lem. Actor Kenneth Johnson joined his former castmates today at the "Shield's" Hollywood soundstage, eager to see the first episode after he was offed by a grenade from the hand of fellow renegade cop and close friend Shane (Walton Goggans), who was led to believe Lem had turned on the team. These upcoming episodes were originally thought to be the series' end. But creator Shawn Ryan decided he had more stories to tell, through a final 13 to be shot next year for airing in 2008.

    "We wanted to not rush past that crime while we were wrapping up everything else," said Ryan, who's been building meaty storylines for all the supporting characters not to mention the eventual resolution of star Michael Chiklis' series-launching shot to the head of a detective spying on his crooked crew.

    Forest Whitaker returns as the spooky internal affairs lieutenant who's out to nail Vic, by any means. And those means look to be getting downright lethal by the final scenes of this season premiere. "You can't see the line anymore," the police chief warns Whitaker's obsessed character, deftly echoing the murky attitude of Vic and fellow cops who plunge daily into the cesspool of those mean streets.

    Whitaker will appear in the season's first two episodes, at least, Ryan said teasingly. The softspoken creator tries to maintain an air of mystery about a series so consistently electrifying, fans can't decide whether they want to know what's going to happen, so they can brace themselves, or wait to be surprised, so their jaws can drop.

    That happens more than a few times in this kick-butt return, which ranges through a hostage crisis at a free clinic, porno store robberies, more Salvadoran gang warfare, even a brawl in the squad room, and one cop's surprisingly suicidal actions. Amazingly, every member of the extended cast gets fine screen time even recurring characters like the Salvadoran woman snitch caught in the crossfire between Whitaker and Chiklis yet the episode never feels rushed.

    All the threads from last season are picked up, too Danny's baby (Catherine Dent gets a breathtaking scene with Cathy Cahlin Ryan as Vic's suspicious wife), Claudette's promotion to captain, Vic's promise to "retire" to hang onto his pension. "The Shield" never forgets where it came from, finally plunging strange straightarrow detective Dutch into a call at a house crawling with cats. (Remember his disturbing twist with the stray at his doorstep?) It begins like a bit of comic relief, then does a horrific 180 to become yet another shocker in this masterful episode.

    Wish I could tell you more, but the "Shield" folks would probably kill me.

    And I'd hate to miss a minute of what looks, again, like the most amazing "Shield" season ever.

    As do I. Best damn show on TV-bar none, hands down. Mackey rules. The season finale last year was so way out there-I never saw it coming and it blew my mind.

    Blast from the past, been re-watching this series and it still holds up.

    Agree...that was must see TV for me. Loved Michael Chiklis's portrayal of Vic Mackey.


    Probably why Chicago PD is must see TV now. Love the Hank Voight character.

    Yeah The Shield still holds up today. Plus there was no pussy footing on the ending. That was the start of FX's golden run. They had that, Rescue Me, Justified and Sons all in a row. Plus some decent shows that didn't catch on like Terriers.

    The greatest police TV drama ever made, IMO. Blows NYPD Blue and all the Law & Orders out of the water. Only ones that come close are The Wire & Homicide: Life on the Street.

    And agreed with FX. Their 2000s lineup was unfuckwithable. The Shield, Nip/Tuck, Rescue Me, It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, Sons of Anarchy & Justified.
