    Just checked out FX's site and according to the promos, Season 3 doesn't begin until March. I wonder if this is because maybe they feel it would detract from the 24 viewership? At least the S2 DVD's will help tide me over till then...

    If I recall, new seasons of The Shield have always started in March.

    Maybe because they want it to start after the the 2nd season finishes it's second run ?

    IIRC, Season 2 started in early January last year.

    I for one am glad. I missed S2 and now I can watch it on DVD before S3 starts.

    Seasons 1 and 2 both started in January of 2002 and 2003.

    Yeah, I remember it starting in January. Are they really waiting until March now even though they've already started advertising it? That sucks.

    A bit off-topic, but is season 2 of The Shield as good as season 1 is? I'm watching S1 currently and I like it very much. I'm afraid that they can't keep up that kind of quality...

    IMO, the second season is even better than the first.

    The first season 3 promo I saw for the Shield was during the season finale of Nip/Tuck. At that time it said January of 2004. The move to March was not learned until early in December.

    http://theshieldfans.com/forum/index...t=34&offset=69

    More than having to wait till March is the fact that I have to get into 2 shows at once. (The Sopranos) Last year went really well with S2 of The Shield, Six Feet Under then The Wire. The summer was really hard, trying to keep up with Nip/Tuck, Dead Like Me and Out of Order.

    Following the similar threads concerning Alias and 24, I'd like to know how is season 3 of the incredible The Shield looking? I've one episode of season 1 to go and I've heard that season 2 is probably even better (how can it possibly be?) - but season 3? Please tell me they (Shawn Ryan and others) know what they're doing...!

    Whoops, it seems you wouldn't know how is season 3 since it hasn't even started yet.. Well, let me know when it starts rolling. Until then, forget this thread was ever made.

    15 episodes? Great. I just hope that doesn't mean they're finishing the show already...

    Have there been any talks about how many seasons of Shield they will make?

    Vic and crew return tonight on F/X for season 3 of the best cop drama on TV. Looking forward to watching two seasons of troubles and issues come crashing in on the barn this season.

    Hopefully, they will have a quick recap of season 2 to start off, especially for those who may be new to the series.

    Hate to miss NYPD Blue which is on at the same time, but Mackey wins over Sipowitz tonight!

    You don't have to. The Shield repeats at 11pm. FX did the same thing with season 2.

    I've finally caught up with both seasons of The Shield these past few months. The nightly episodes for season 2 gave me plenty of momentum into getting very interested in tonight's season 3 premiere. Woo hoo!

    Not only that, but Dishnetwork was kind enough to relieve me of the quandry of choosing between the repeat of The Shield and The Daily Show on Comedy Central.
