So the Shield ended it's run last night..Wrapping up one of the BEST tv shows ever made in my opinion. With an amazing cast, rounded out with great secondary characters, storylines and perfect guest cast members..Every season of the Shield just got better and better..And it all ended last night. Funny thing about this show was, you always had to remind yourself in the end that Vic Mackie was indeed a "bad guy" no matter who he was trying to do right by, he was always the bad guy..yet you spent the entire series hoping he gets away with it, and cheering him on when he did. the Strike Team itself was nothing more than thugs with badges and guns. Killing people, stealing money, pushing drugs, breaking any law when it suited them, it was a daily operation for them. Yet, right up to the end, you wanted him to get away with it. Even after he betrayed his partners, sold them out, some left for dead, everything finally to save him and his..And it all blew up in his face last night, and finally losing everything. His job, his family, his friends, his partners, the beliefs he held so strongly to through the entire show. But, they did leave it on one note, not entirely positive..but, Vic walks out of his new desk job, still the fighter he's always been, put his gun in his belt and went out back into his world, not beaten, broken, but not giving up..he's still out there..And I think I kinda want him to win still. What a great damned show. Nothing else out there like it. It'll certainly be missed.
