    Just ordered seasons 1 & 2 for £12.99 each from sendit.com

    Ive been putting off buying these as I cant really afford £18+ for each one but ive not seen them cheaper than this price.

    Best show EVER - grab them now - I happily paid full whack for both seasons and am gagging waiting for the third season, which I guess will finally be released when the fourth season hits Five.

    (Won't buy the R1 releases as they are fullscreen, R2 is anamorphic widescreen)

    Cheers mate. Had been waiting to find this one cheap. Only paid £15 for the 1st series so wasn't gonna pay £35 for the subsequent series. £13 inc del is a bargain. Just need the 3rd or 4th seasons to come out cheap now.

    I have just ordered both series and hope I won't be disappointed as I have not seen any of these.
    Seems to get great reviews but then so does "Fools and Horses and I hate that!
    I read that if you like the film "Training Day" you will like The Shield!
    If so, I am in for a treat at a bargain price!

    if you like your cop shows gritty and the good guys and bad guys all wear grey hats. fantastic actors, great scripts direction that can make you dizzy, characters that both repel and attract at the same time, then you're going to love it, its superb. "Vic" is fantastic and getting to know him is a pleasure. oh and did i mention it can be very funny.

    Makes "The Bill" look like "Dixon of Dock Green" :D

    Enjoy :D

    Never had any problems with them althogh ive always had stuff from stock.

    Fingers crossed the delay wont be too bad. Had season 2 delivered today but need to watch them from the start as I missed the very first couple of episodes from what I remember.

    Yes, they are very well established with good customer service and bargains
    - you may have heard of them under their former name of Blackstar, which started up in 1998. :thumbsup:
