Critic Reviews for The Shield: Season 7

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (12)

The whole sorry state of affairs cries out for a stiff dose of Mackey's fist-in-the-face retribution. It's what makes The Shield both powerful and troubling. His way repeatedly is made to seem like the only way.

I didn't think the Whitaker season could be topped, but depending on how the last five episodes go down, Ryan and company may have done it.

August 14, 2018 | Full Review…

Culminates in one of the all-time greatest series finales in television history, one that manages to give The Sopranos a run for its money.

January 8, 2019 | Full Review…

I'd been anticipating a typical Dragnet-style procedural, but The Shield immediately proved its ability to defy conventions and expectations.

November 20, 2018 | Full Review…

"The Shield" didn't have a down season, a weak link or more than a couple missteps. It started at a frantic pace, and never let up.

November 19, 2018 | Full Review…

The dark and often brilliant series about life lived in the gray area between right and wrong had its ups and downs over the course of six seasons but the seventh and final chapter in the life of Vic Mackey was stunningly perfect.
