Critic Reviews for The Shield: Season 2

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

The Shield has taken a visible turn this season, structuring its horrors so that they pertain acutely to current anxieties.

November 19, 2018 | Full Review…

With Mackey and Aceveda forced to work together, "Shield" creator Shawn Ryan has diffused the Road Runner-Wile E. Coyote dynamic...It's a shakeup that ought to ensure more surprising twists in episodes to come.

November 19, 2018 | Full Review…

With half as many episodes as a typical series, the show doesn't get as bogged down in personal matters...which keeps things taut.

August 14, 2018 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

Episodes like this [finale] are why they came up with the word "game-changer."

August 14, 2018 | Full Review…

The cop show so different it tells you it's different about a dozen times every episode just in case you don't notice it's different, The Shield is back for a second season of belligerent chest-thumping.
