“The Shield” Series Finale segues into Thanksgiving
You won’t find a more wacky juxtaposition than this. The most white-knuckled nail-biting edge-of-your-seat TV series ever (IMHO) goes out with a Bang! — just as everybody’s making their Thanksgiving preparations.
I wonder if there were millions of kitchen conversations today that went something like:
“God, can you believe Shane poisoned his wife and son and then shot himself mmmm, need a little more nutmeg in the pumpkin pie.”
“Damn, talk about irony — Vic sold Gardocki down the river so he could protect Corinne and the kids, only it turned out they didn’t need any protection because Corinne helped the police nab Vic so she could get herself into the witness protection program, little more sage in the turkey dressing, here I’ll get these pecans chopped up.”
“How about that “Dutch Boy” — he went from being the precinct nerd six years ago, the butt of everyone’s jokes and pranks, to being the smartest shrewdest detective on the force, and at the end of the series he was practically the only cast member who wasn’t jailed, dead, terminally ill or tainted by scandal, how much bourbon goes into that sweet potato casserole?”
Happy Thanksgiving everybody.
