Just done the whole of season 6 in one viewing. 

Impressive, most impressive. 

 

Now that it's on All4 - is it the UK or US TV ending? I seem to remember a different cut for the Channel 5 ending. I had dodgy DVDs from America so got the real deal but i seem to remember some confusion/anger over the way it was handled on British telly.

Pretty sure it was the two-parter when I first watched it.  The last scene of the first part is an interrogation scene that I vaguely remember blowing my head off at the time.

One of my favourite quotes/scenes from any TV show 

 

It’s the contempt he says it with. 

 

However the phone call between Vic and Shane is the greatest scene in telly ever.

Got my mate in work onto this and he can't get enough of it.

 

Jealous that the cunt is only seeing it all for the first time now, though.

 

Truly one of the best ever made.

I’m currently on Season 6 of this now and as Philly once said “I’m addicted to the Shield”

 

It’s truly superb, I can’t put into words how much I love this show.

 

Vic. Lem. Dutch and Claudette. Shane. Aceveda. 

 

All their stories just get better and better with each passing season and the one liners from notably Vic and Shane have had me pissing myself, my favourite has to be from some white banger though...

 

I’m getting more black ass than a bus seat in Compton. 

 

I’ll have the whole thing finished by the end of the week and I’ll be gutted but probably go straight back to it.

Have loved watching this again on 4OD (yep agree about the awful adverts though!) I'd forgotten just how good it is. 

 

A lot of its best bits are subtle, the looks, the glances, the camerawork. For example, I didn't realise until repeated viewing that Vic is sort of responsible for Aceveda's rape because he sticks that bong down the fella's throat. It's never explicitly stated like it would be in a lesser show. 

 

Also, Mara, what a twat. Wonderfully written and acted shitbag.

For years on this site I've seen you reference Vic with lines like "Vic Mackie would never let this shit fly" 

 

Well you've been bang on the money there Vic Mackie wouldn't let any shit fly. What a fucking character he is. 

 

I even shazam'd the song that played out at the end of Season 5, I knew it was The Smashing Pumpkins, but didn't know the track. I'm listening to it now, it's called Disarm, for anyone that's interested.

Yeah there's some boss tunes on it. It's got the honour of having the only good Coldplay song on it, Kingdom Come, when Lem gets arrested. 

 

Full list here.

    • Great round up, I was either nodding in agreement or laughing at all of it!
    • Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is the latest Liverpool player to commit his future to the Reds by signing a long term deal.

      The decision to sign the midfielder from Arsenal in August 2017 raised some eyebrows at the time and he went through the usual acclimatising period when joining a new club.

      The start of 2018 saw the England international truly come into his own and his drive from midfield pushed the Reds to the next level especially when they came up against elite opposition such as Manchester City.

      Just when ‘Ox ’was becoming a indispensable part of the starting lineup, he was cruelly cut down by a very serious knee injury in the first leg of the semi final tie against Roma at Anfield.

      So began a year of blood, sweat, and tears in the rehabilitation room as the 26 year-old played the role that no footballer wants to be be - a spectator.

      The team evolved further in his absence, perhaps not as dynamic, but certainly more pragmatic as they found ways to win and displayed the resilience that Oxlade-Chamberlain was showing in his rehab.

      The popular member of the squad took his first steps back to first team football at the tail end of last season, but it has been in the early part of this campaign where he has become a starting member once again.   There was little doubt last season that the Reds missed his dynamism and drive from midfield, and speaking after signing the contract, Oxlade-Chamberlain was clearly looking forward to moving on the next phase of his career.  

      The Official site reported Oxlade-Chamberlain as saying:

      “I’m really, really excited - it’s been in the pipeline for a little while, so it’s nice to finally get it done and just extend my time here, which I am really looking forward to.

      “I feel like I missed out on a year, which I obviously did, so it’s really exciting for me to be able to sign. 

      “It’s something that I feel is an opportunity to give that year back and make up for lost time – and hopefully put in some good performances to make amends for not being around last year”

      “You’ve got to count your blessings every time you get an opportunity like this, you don’t get the chance to play for Liverpool Football Club every day. 

      “I am really excited to be able to extend my time here.”

      You get a sense that the hard times that the midfielder has experienced has made him want to make the best of every opportunity, as well as respecting those who put their hard earned money into the club. 

      “I can promise the supporters that I'll give them absolutely everything moving forward.

      “As a footballer, I think the least you can do is respect the fans, the club and who you play for and give them everything you can. 

      “When you get the support back that you do, you can't really have any complaints. 

      It's [Liverpool] a hard place not to embrace. It's such a full-on culture, so much passion from everyone that is associated with the club – it's really endearing.

      “There might be times where I have bad games and good games and moments where it's not so good, but I'll always work through those moments and give my everything to correct them and keep pushing this team for.

      Meanwhile, the manager was just as delighted to see Oxlade-Chamberlain commit to the club.

      “When I heard Ox had signed his new contract with us, I am sure my emotions were the same as every Liverpool fan hearing the news tonight – absolutely delighted.

      “We all know Alex’s story since he came to the club, and yes there have been disappointments as well as highs, but what has impressed me and everyone is his attitude to dealing with setbacks and his character.

      “That’s why none of us were ever in any doubt about him fighting his way back in the way he did. 

      “To see him play almost the whole game at Southampton on Saturday was such a positive moment for all of us, especially him.

      And Jurgen has a request for the fans in relation to Alex.

      “Maybe this is the season we hear the Kop sing an Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain song.   " I can tell you it would mean a lot to me and the boys to hear that, let alone him!”
