The Shield, final episode

I watched the final episode ever of The Shield last night. I haven't been watching The Shield regularly lately, because it's on late on a Monday night, on an obscure channel (Five US). Also because I'd lost touch with it a bit. My favourite characters were Aceveda and Dutch Wagenbach, and I wasn't seeing so much of ether of them, and I don't know, somehow it seemed to lose a bit in comparison to the Wire. It's high class pot boiler.

But I thought the final episode (double-episode) was extremely good, enough to make me want to go back and rewatch the previous couple of seasons more methodically. While some characters' stories came decisively to an end, there was an overall feeling that life was continuing.

Surely Holmes

BTW has everyone who might be interested seen the trailer for Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes? If you haven't seen it yet here it is.

Well. It looks mental. I still think Jude Law and Robert Downey Jnr are the bee's knees though.

H says it looks like The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. I bloody hope it isn't.
