  1. TV drama: The Shield versus The Wire | Television & radio | The Guardian

    Chris Petit from 2008, for the bit on The Shield. “The Shield is reprobate, founded on moral ambiguity, driven by violence, lacking the core of good guys who police Homicide and The Wire … [it] is more like science fiction in its prediction of anarchic alienation and breakdown.”

    I've had a nice day. I ended it with a sunny coffee and a read. It's the weekend. So why on Earth am I suddenly all stressed and angry?
