Completely spoiler-free thoughts on tonight's series finale of "The Shield"

Shield Here are the slightly wine-fueled text messages I sent to my editor Sara Frederick over the course of tonight's series-ending episode of The Shield. Her messages are in bold italics. I will spare you the content of our voice conversations during each commercial break. (note: just because I theorize about plot developments doesn't mean they actually took place):

- 9:59 p.m. I can't believe this is the LAST Shield!

- 10:00 p.m. I'm scared!

- 10:01 p.m. Me too. Really!

- 10:09 p.m. Corinne is gonna shoot Vic.

- 10:37 p.m. I'm shutting this off.

- 10:37 p.m. No!!!!!!!!!!!

- 10:39 p.m. It's too painful. Poor Shane! I hope he makes it.

- 10:39 p.m. I want them all to. How do you get addicted so freaking quickly?

- 11:10 p.m. Dutch is a serial killer!

- 11:10 p.m. You think?

- 11:11 p.m. YES

- 11:18 p.m. OMG!

- 11:28 p.m. I hate this show.

- 11:29 p.m. I'm very upset. What do you think is going to happen to Vic?

- 11:31 p.m. HA!

- 11:34 p.m. This is AWESOME.

- 11:38 p.m. GENIUS

can't fight this feeling anymore

Despite the fact that the two of you are clearly 13 year old girls, I found this quite entertaining. But MAN. That finale wrecked me.

Also: Dutch is not a serial killer, you idiot.


This show is like the longest, greatest movie ever told. Sad to see it go but also exciting to see it end.

Rene, what other TV shows are you into? Is there anything else like The Sopranos or The Shield worth seeking out (airing now or out on DVD)?


Fantastic finale. Vic got EXACTLY what he deserved.
