i am a shields finatic! i have watched every episode and own ever box set and right now i am a very un happy customer!!! so read a little of what i am upset about!! email me if u would like to hear more
i love the show and have been watching it from the begining. to be honest with you i was a little upset with season 5's dvd box set. i am used to the nice set that you can get and i went an bought the 5th season and was very very disappointed. for one usually it is not that small and the pictures look like someone photo copied them and threw them in there. and with season 6's premier i was a little upset it didn't hold up to the shields usually expectations!!
Dirty cops have been around since the earliest movies of the 30's and 50's so I'am not that impressed with his work.
Seeing as well that his character is so similar to the Dennis Franz character it's laughable to call "The Shield" groundbreaking. The character he plays is like an evil version of Franz's.
He's a decent actor but overrated. There's no depth to Mackey. He's a dirty cop masquerading as a father (he's had several women while allegedly loving his wife), he's killed suspect broken laws. The character is much more one dimensional and in any other show would have been killed of a long, long time ago. His resume outside of "The Shield" is not that impressive either outiside of "The Commish". Dennis Franz will always be the first really tough cop on tv with Chiklis following in his footsteps.
Im a little biased. The Shield ranks #2 on my list of shows and Michael Chiklis is a huge reason. Vic Mackey is without a dought the workds baddest cop. When I say baddest I mean every way "baddest" can be construde. He carry's the weight of the citys most notorious group of cops on his back and seems to enjoy sticking it to the very force he works for. You have to love the emotion the Chiklis is able to draw from Vic. No one on television knows the ins and outs of his/her character better than Chiklis. He really doesn't get the recognition he deserves but that's alright, those of us lucky to see him know what the fuss is about.
I met him years ago when the MGM still had their themepark. We were waiting on line for some ride and He and a friend were talking. I said "Aren't you the Commish?" and he said yeah then we had a short conversation. He was very pleasant and approachable so I give him major kudos for being so nice and down to earth. GREAT ACTOR!
I've seen him in 'The Shield' and in 'Fantastic Four', and I think he is one of the sexiest men on the planet, especially in The Shield, playing a corrupt, tough, street-wise cop.
Sex appeal x 1000 [!!]
When I was fifteen I would tape the show so I could rewind the sexiest bits with him in it and just watch them over and over again. Two years later I still do it. That's how hot he is. He can act the sh*t out of any script he's given on 'The Shield' and I just love him.
I saw him on Rove Live [Australian version of The Late Show] and he was funny as. Plus his blue eyes are absolutely gorgeous. Yeah, so I'm running out ways to say 'he's sexy' so I think I might end it here.
In short: I heart Michael Chiklis.
