I'm glad things like the Shield and 24 are around during the 'slow' months for the other networks. Though I'm disappointed only 11 eps in spring.

Leading off things in January will be the fifth season premiere of "The Shield." The series is expected to run for 11 episodes, after which it will take a break until either the fall or next January (depending upon how season three of "Rescue Me" and presumably the fourth season of "Nip/Tuck" are scheduled) when the latter half of its 21-episode season will air.

Wait a minute...they tease us with a promise of a full season and then do the same old thing? It doesn't matter if they call it one season-if there is a 3-6 month break between episodes its no different than what they've done before. And I was really excited about having the Shield on every week for 4 or 5 months...

Oh well, I'll still be watching...

I watched an episode of the TNT "Shield" ripoff called "Wanted." Talk about your pieces of crap. Man, that was horrible. Can't wait for the real thing to start again. But when is F/X finally going HD?

The Shield is still my favorite show on TV. Please, please, please add FXHD sometime soon. FX is the worst looking channel that I watch on my HDTV.
Amen to both. FX is my favorite channel with the strongest lineup in TV. They should coin the phrase "must see TV" or something. :)

Letterboxing a crappy picture doesn't make it better! Given that Fox broadcasts all of their NFL games in HD on Superfan, they should be the leader in providing HD broadcasting and do it for their best shows on FX.

I've been wanting new episodes of The Shield so badly. After rewinding (can you say that with tivo? sometimes I say "taking it back") every commercial break during Nip/Tuck that has Shield promos, my wife is now trained. She hears Hurt come on and won't touch the remote until it's over, hehe.

Now, I realize you guys will get onto me for not having the remote in my own hand already, but we switch off. Deal with it.

So what date is the premier?

This was at the bottom of the article:

as well as the Andre Braugher-led crime drama "Thief"

Hadn't heard about this. Love Andre Braugher and any drama on FX is good.

Is this supposed to be the last season?

On another TV forum I visit from time to time there was a very long heated discussion about who would win in a straight up fight, Mackey or Al Swearigen. I love Mackey but I think Al would kill him.

I'd go with Al in his prime. Vic is a thug but Al is a killer. Plus, Vic hides behind his badge a lot. It's easy to beat people up when they know they can't fight back.

Did you forget about Vic in season 1, episode 1?

Considering there wasn't much "law" back in the wild west, and Al is peeing blood and hammered most of the time, I'd go with Vic.

Love both shows, BTW.

Every time F/X has re-run all the Shield episodes leading in to a new season I have watched them, that's how good the show is.

It's probably the 4th time i've seen the 1st season, but it's still just as good as it's ever been.

And I still do a 30 second skip during Aceveda's "incident" :)
