I want to invest in a box-set. I've narrowed it down to The Shield and Deadwood. Which one is the betterest?
I'm not sure I could choose one, they're both worth the money. Probably Deadwood.
but Deadwood is excellent also.
because some people on Amazon said something about some of the latter episodes being cut from feature length running times to fit in with UK broadcast schedules and them being the versions included on the box-sets. What's that all about?
For the first few series of The Shield, it's more or less the same thing every week. Vic Mackey punching lads in the stomach and almost getting caught out. It gets consistently great in the last few series.
it just sounds like you're making up names.
The hellz wrong with you people!?
MASS OWNAGE in any given scene. Amazing twists, amazing cameos, AMAZING ENDING!
Deadwood is my pick of the two on aesthetic grounds (though only just) but maybe go for the Shield because you'll have more episodes, hence more return for your investment.
