    I, too, would love to own it.
    In the meantime, you can attempt to satisfy your Shield fix by watching reruns Monday nights at 10pm on fx. The series will be repeated, every episode in order, Monday night, starting (I believe) this coming Monday, June 10.
    Speaking of which, does anyone know if the season ender will be reshown anytime sooner than that? I missed it! [​IMG]

    With other recent shows coming to dvd like 24, the Shield might not be to far away. I'm glad Chicliks got an Emmy nod.

    Hehehe, chick licks.
    It's Chiklis.
    Would like this on DVD as well, the more shows the better. I create my own programming.

    I would LOVE for this set to come out! The Shield is one of the best new series to air in quite some time!

    I think "24" is the exception, not the rule when it comes to early releases of TV product on DVD. "24" is a show that wouldn't fair well in syndication, so I believe Fox decided there would be a better payoff to release the set now and use it to promote the second season of the show.

    TV on DVD and release dates would make an excellent paper. I'm sure there are tons of formulas and factors that go into choosing an appropriate release date.

    I've not yet seen this show, but from what people have told me, this isn't exactly great syndication material. I really can't see too many local stations carrying a show with the language this one has. And if they do carry it, it'd have to be aired late evening/night, which also limits the demand. I would think this would be a likely candidate for an early DVD release.

    At least I hope so so I can see it.

    Well, look what happens when I open my yap and say "It's too early for 'The Shield' to be released".
    I just received some news from Charles Amadori about a January release of the first season. Jump over to http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/showinfo.cfm?ShowID=5348 and click on the news item to read the full story.

    Good news! I'll be buying this one. I hope it's 16x9 and 5.1. I wonder if it even is filmed in widescreen? Oh, well, who knows other than the creator.

    It would seem like an ideal candidate to show off how shiny Chiklis' head looks on dvd.

    I just started watching this on the most recent marathon that started last week and I am hooked!

    When I get the DVDs I'll have to watch them with my husband--I keep telling him how great this show is.

    Depending on price I'll be interested in this one. I watched one episode recently.. the most INTENSE hour of television I'd seen in a long time. Brutal.

    The only thing that sucks is that Season 2 starts on the same day the DVD is released.

    I saw Season One & loved it and I want to show it to my husband when the DVDs come out. But I'm going to want to watch the first episode! And I'm sure he'll be hooked once he sees it to also want to watch the new season.

    I guess I 'll need to leave it on my Replay TV and watch it again with him.

    Most of the sites that have it on pre-order list it as Full Screen. I haven't seen any episodes recently but I thought The Shield was filmed in Widescreen. Can anyone tell us if the episodes were Fullscreen or Widescreen?

    Thanks!
