Just saw the 1st 2 episodes of The Shield Season 4 and I love the addition of Glenn Close as the new chief. Certainly is a different approach for Vic this season.

Yeah the new captain has something up her sleeve that hasn't revealed itself yet. I also get the feeling that something big is going to go down with
Shane as he seems to be even more crooked without Vic to reel him in. I also get the sneaky feeling that Vic will be the one to find out about Aceveda's hooker fetish and use that info to his advantage.


it's gonna be a great season.

It's been so long since the last season that I forgot what's going on. Hasn't it been a year since the season 3 finale?

It's been about 6 months in "The Shield" time between season 3's finale and season 4's premiere.

After also checking out these 2 early episodes, Season 4 looks promising, Glenn Close will be good in the role as the new chief now that Acevada is moving on to the councilman seat.

I guess we aren't going to see Tavon anytime soon.

While the Strike Team has been dismantled, it's interesting how the team still appears to have some glue within the core 4, even though it is getting stretched thin due to the personalities. Vic's pretty much stuck at the farm for now.

You could always rent the DVDs which just came out. I only started watching the show recently, so that is how I watched season 3. I will try to summarize for you:


Dutch is curious about how it feels to murder (he only killed a cat so far, that we know of)

Claudette is not getting the promotion because she pushed too hard about the public defender on oxycontin

Lem burned most of the money train cash, leaving them with about $65000 each (split 3 ways).

Vic shot and killed Margos

The Strike Team will probably be disbanded because Lem wants out, and the Captain is not restaffing special operations teams. Vic tries to reconcile Lem with Shane at the end, but Shane loses it, and Lem takes off. Shane also pisses off Vic and then drives off.

Although there's a spoiler thread for this, I didn't see one for the season itself. At any rate, I just thought I'd get the party started in anticipation of tonight's premiere. After the money train debacle and the dissolution of the strike team, I wonder what's in store for Vic this season? Will Tavon return?

I've gone ahead and merged the threads, and spoilered some comments for the time being until the episodes are aired, starting with the 1st episode tonight on FX in the usual 10 p.m. EST timeslot, but bear in mind that tonight's episode runs an extra 6 minutes long (in case some of you do recordings on VCRs, be sure to pad the record time, or check to see if your DVR's channel guide has the extended recording time in place).

That's great that FX gives them some extra time for the show. Another perk of being the most succesful show on the channelPosted Image

I've seen the first two episodes of Season 4, and without giving anything away, I've got to say I'm pleasantly surprised. I've never been a big fan of Glenn Close, but she does a good job with her role here ....

Having seen the first 2 episodes also, I agree that Glenn Close is pretty decent, though
maybe a little too omniscient/perfect in the first couple of episodes. I guess we'll see how it plays out, but one of the things that's so great about the Shield is that NOBODY's perfect.

It was cool seeing Vic and Ronnie working together. And I loved Ronnie's line to Mackey "I thought they fixed your face?"

I'm thoroughly enjoying Glenn Close's character too. I knew she was a darn good actor but she's doing great so far. No makeup, pretty movie star crap either. Posted Image

I found the opening gag pretty funny (about blaming the dog).

Both me and the wife were LOAO... That was too freaking funny...

So far it has started out with a bang... The Shane character is going to be a good one this season.... It will be interesting to see how he plays out... And it looks like his girlfriend/wife had the baby.... or so he says...

.....
So do you guys and gals think shane killed the one dude????



I am still up in the air about the glenn close character...... I will wait and see before I make a final judgement on her character..

Tuesday cannot come quick enough.....

Vic has created a monster in Shane as Shane's moral boundaries keep expanding to many shades of gray.

Without Vic to reign him in, Shane looks to have big problems in short order. It appears that it's going to come to a head between him and Vic sometime this year. Lem was looking homesick after helping out at the barn and evidently, the Youth Services (or whatever it was called) is too mellow for him.
Six worlds prayed to her, they built her temples, conquered planets, and yet one day she still rode off and destroyed all six worlds. And when the last warrior was dying he said "We gave you everything, why did you destroy us?" and she looked down upon him and she whispered, "Because I can".

Rhett, I don't think Shane killed that guy. He knows who did but he didn't do it himself. He wouldn't have offered Mackey his gun if he had fired it. Anyway, Shane is definitely bad news this year. Shane still knows all the old dirt on Mackey and we all know that Vic isn't going to take that. Posted Image

I hope they get Lem back in to the show (and the strike team) again.
