Holy Shield! Don't do it!

The Shield's final season posterDid you ever get news that both enthralled and worried you all at the same time? Like remember when you were a kid and you heard you were going to Disney World but first you would have to drop off your sick puppy at the vet for a little nap?

That's the feeling my gut got when series creator Shawn Ryan said Fox might make a Shield movie if demand called for it.

The question actually sparked an interesting and light-hearted war of friendly curses between the cast and Sons of Anarchy star Ron Perlman who was also on the dais to grub for Emmy nods. Walter Walton Goggins, the actor who brilliantly played the daft and overly cocky Shane Vendrell, uttered "That is bull#*$&!" since his character killed his family and then shot himself in the final episode just as the Barn closed in on him. That's not a direct quote, by the way. He may have used different punctuation marks.

There is no Noloxone for Shield junkies

It's been more than three weeks since The Shield ended its seven-year run, and I still find myself wanting more. Not just wanting it. Craving it, needing it, willing to do anything for it -- the way one of Vic's CI junkies would gather intel on the One-Niners in the hopes he'll get to trade it for a taste of the sweet liquid heaven of Maxwell's Silver Hammer.

The ending isn't my problem. In fact, it's one of the better series endings I've seen in my lifetime. The show didn't go out all guns a blazin' in a fiery final showdown, with Shane or Vic waking up next to Suzanne Pleshette and realizing the entire season was just a dream that took place in an autistic child's snow globe.

FOX programs when you want 'em

by Anna Johns, posted Jan 5th 2006 8:36PM
FOX Entertainment and DirecTV just signed a deal to offer some F/X programs to viewers up to two days before they are actually broadcast. Those programs include The Shield, Rescue Me, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and 30 Days. Getting programs ahead of time won't be free, of course. It'll cost you $2.99 to see them in advance, and you need to have DirecTV satellite and the DirecTV DVR. The on-demand programming launches in March.

Today, FOX also announced that some of its most popular shows will be available for purchase for up to a week after they air. Those shows are 24 and Prison Break, and they cost $.99 a pop. This is on top of DirecTV's deal with NBC that offers replays of primetime shows that also cost $.99 each.
