    absolutely the best thing on television ever ever ever and so much better than everything else on right now (including other top-rated HBO shows) that it's embarrassing. I will talk the ear off anyone who entertains me on the subject

    I'd make a case for The Shield at least running it very close :)

    BTW - Shield fans.. new series soon. And FX have confirmed that there'll be a seventh (and final one) next year.

    Support the Mowgli Dirty Protest!

    Agree! Do you know when The Shield season 3 and 4 will be available on Pal DVD?

    Same here, I've given up on waiting for the Pal releases. If if weren't for the good old internet...

    However, my gf needs subtitles and she's loves the series (we're Dutch) so whenever the Pal DVD's get released, I'll buy 'em.

    You hear that Columbia Tristar!!! I want to BUY them from you!!!

    The Shield is pretty good.

    it doesn't deserve to be mentioned in the same sentence as The Wire

    Just finished episode 3 (season 4).

    Didnt think it would work out too well, what with the school storylines but damn, it's turing out to be another cracker.

    What a fantastic show!

    Never having watched this show before all the praise on here has made me decide to give it a go. Any recommendations as to where online I could pick up a cheap season 1 boxset?

    You can get season 1 & 2 for 25 each on amazon. Decent deal.
    Go get it! You wont regret.

    finished season 4 last night at about half one and couldn't sleep

    if you are a citizen of the first world you have an obligation to watch this, it is several orders of magnitude greater than anything else on television right now

    Fuck, you're right!

    How'd that happen? Episode 6 is being screened tonight. Did they get leaked? I know I watched episode 5 before screening last week because it was a review copy - same thing?

    whole thing got leaked gradually (and quite shabbily -- episode 12 is still only in .rm format) over the last week or two. it's quite a bit of hassle to track down all the files from different locations

    you can get the whole series now as a dvd screener (good quality too)

    I watched it all and its amazing, though I have read that they will be adding scenes to certain episodes that are not on the leaked screener.

    Finished season 4 - absolutly fantastic and the end montage bit had me a bit teary at some bits.

    Set up nicely for season 5....thats if it gets the go-ahead as ratings so far have been a bit dissapointing. I hear Simon will release the series as a novel if it oesnt get produced.

    Terrible shame that such a powerful and amazing series isnt getting the massive viewing figures it deserves.

    Just finished season 4.
    Not sure how they can add scenes to episodes that are already an hour long.

    take out parts > add in different parts

    easy

    That would be changing scenes then.
    I hope they do, season 4 ended quite horribly.
    Not sure how they could save it though.

    Seriously, I am going to cry.

    Movietyme may be a decent place to get S3. Im tempted to go to them now myself.
