'Tis bittersweet. The long awaited final season of one of the best tv shows begins tonight at 10 EST. What fate will befall Vic Mackey?

Malheureusement, as excited as I am to watch, It'll probably get pushed back on the agenda as it's SD fare that takes up a tiny fraction of the DVR space of HD shows.
Let me know if it's just good or something I absolutely need to spend the next available hour on.

I meant to post this yesterday and then completely forgot to watch. Well, they'll replay it sometime this week I'd imagine.

Honestly, I was somewhat underwhelmed with the premiere. Although the Shane scene with the axe was nice, as was the Billings climax. And Ronnie, WOW. Not to get too spoilerish for those who haven't seen it, but it was interesting to see Shane shooting the straight shit at the end, but Vic and Ronnie lying.

I missed it because my hotel does not have FX. I watched it last night online.

Well, I guess that is that. Not terribly thrilled with the finale, but they entertained me for a few years. :toast:

Weird. I did a thread about this show just last week.

I had done a search for the Shield but strangely, this thread never came up in my search.

Yeah, it was pretty good stuff for awhile. It had gotten pretty crazy this last season with everything going to shit. It was time to end it, that's for sure. I haven't watched the last episode as of yet. I will watch it sometime over this Thanksgiving weekend.

Watch it. It was a great ending to a great show.

Just found out that Walton Goggins' real life wife committed suicide in 2004. Rough stuff.

Considering how the story ended, that gets a "wow".

I guess the story really couldn't have ended any other way. I know Vic and Ronnie pulled some ghastly shit, but I was really hoping they would get away. Especially Ronnie, he seemed likethe "noble" one, if you could call him that. Vic really fucked up a lot of lives in that show. He made out probably as good as he could.

I wonder if there will be a TV movie or a mini-series down the road for the Shield?

I don't know if you consider where Vic ended up as good as he could. For a minute, I thought he was gonna take the Shane way out. Kind of a jacked up way to end it.

Heh, considering all the crooked shit he pulled, and the way he forced his way to immunity, he made out like a thief.

And you knew it was going to end badly with Shane on the run and fried out of his brain.

I know what you're saying, but I think a guy like Mackie would prefer death over a desk job.

Yeah, agreed. It's the best he could have done and still lived. lol

As fascinating Shane and Vic were as the frontburner stories, Ronnie was equally fascinating, IMO, right there off center camera. He does come off as noble somehow, yet he never has compunction about the 'heinous shit' and is often pushing farther, faster, and more resolutely than the others, particularly as it came to ending Shane's existence.

Just finished the finale. What a tragic ending to an incredible show. The show dropped off a bit for me when Lem died, but it was necessary I guess. The final 6 episodes were just great. I sort of feel the same way I felt at the end of the movie "Seven".

Anyways I had planned on going to sleep 9 hrs ago, but instead I banged out the final season.

Vic Mackey is THE craziest mofo on the history of TV.

Dutch is one of the smartest/funniest characters ever.

The season 5 finale scene with Shane and Lem was the most incredible scene I've ever scene.

Bleh, I'll have more to say later but, great show.

When you turned out the light and walked out the door,
I said to myself what did I come here for?
Did you have a good time drinking whiskey and ryhme
and did you want to be Bonnie and Clyde?

What goes on in your mind, what goes on in your head?
Who did you think I would be ha, well you got me instead.
You think there's some connection that I'm your female reflection
but no...

I can be loyal and I can be true
but that's for somebody else and it will never be you.
You think we're predetermined but babe you're learning
way to slow...
But it seems such a long time ago.

He can see things you'll never know how to see.
He's three times the man you'll never know how to be.
I'll do anything he wants and I'll go anywhere he wants me to go.
And if that isn't love then I guess I'll just never know.
But it seems a long time ago...

Vic Mackey made him do it to protect the strike team.

Seriously though. Incredibly sad on so many levels.
