This new cop drama is on C5 at 10pm. It has already won praise in the US and an Emmy. Channel 5 do seem to be sneaking out some good stuff that the other channels miss, so maybe worth a go. The radiotimes sais: Pilot episode of a gritty new 13-part drama series about a morally ambiguous but effective band of Los Angeles cops. Strike Team tackle the case of a kidnapped little girl. The Shield is frequently uncomfortable viewing, mainly because we're led into an unutterably sleazy and grubby world. It will be interesting to see how this modern morality tale will develop during coming weeks.
