    Thank goodness "The Shield" is coming back. I've been in withdrawls ever since the end of season 5 and I was beginning to wonder if it was ever going to return. This is awesome news! [​IMG]

    Good to hear, but man they're really milking it. I'm curious where they can go with the story beyond these 10 episodes.

    That seems premature since you have no idea what these episodes are about.

    I just said I was curious and I have my doubts. Hopefully the writers are good enough to come up with a new story arc to hold interest for an additional 13 episodes.

    This is the last 10 episodes of the series... I think the last 10 are going to do with the down fall of the strike team and vic finding out who killed lem..

    According to that article (and everything I've heard) there will be an additional 13 episodes in 2008 (season 7) after these 10.

    Yes, there will be another season after this one and I, for one, am looking forward to as much Shield as we can get since it's one of the few great shows left on TV.

    After watching the Wire, I don't know if I'll stay interested. It will have to be good.

    That's interesting because I tried watching The Wire several times and was absolutely bored to tears with every episode. I keep hearing how great the show is, but from what I saw it's nowhere near as gripping as The Shield. Different strokes, right?

    Shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit, I love both The Wire and The Shield. But they're *very* different shows.

    Yeah, I like both shows as well but for my money there has never been a better season of any TV show than the last season of 'The Wire'. But as Philip said, they are very different shows.

    I know and I am happy they they are not running concurrently. As long as I don't have to compare them on a weekly basis, I am sure that I will be happy.

    According to the Stephen King interview over at AICN, it sounds like Frank Darabont is directing an episode of The Shield this year.All The Shield info discussed is up there but here's the link: http://www.aintitcool.com/node/31707

    I felt that way after I discovered The Wire as well. I just couldn't get back into The Shield for many months... I eventually clenched my teeth and finished S3. Now S4 was awesome. S5... was less so. I thought it was too focused on the IA stuff and too serialized. Weird complaint for me since I generally favor story arcs over stand alones, but this show was good at blending both before S5, IMO.

    I absolutely loved season 5 and all the IA stuff. My biggest gripe with The Shield has always been some of the weak one and done cases you have to endure. I love all of the season long arcs like the money train, Antwon, IA stuff, etc).

    Yes, and Forrest Whitaker was absolutely AWESOME in his role. I thought he was a much better "guest star" for a season than Glenn Close was in season 4.

    Why did watching The Wire make you less interested in The Shield? I haven't seen the Wire, so I don't get it.
