It's good to be back for a bit. Just started watching The Shield, and finished the first season. It's fun and the performances are spot-on and meaty. The character dynamics remind me of Homicide.
But Vic's character is wildly inconsistent. He does something unforgivably bad in the pilot, and spends the rest of the first season (literally) rescuing drowning babies and catching killers. Sure he steals a bit of money and beats some people up, but they're usually gangsters.
Please tell me my purchase of a full-series box set is justified! Please tell me we either get more Bad Vic, or a realization that what he did to kick things off is kind of fucked up.
Yours in hope,
