"The Shield" series finale!!

Tonight marks the end of the road for "The Shield" after 7 harrowing seasons on FX. All the ends are neatly tied up and the world finds out if Vic Mackey (Michael Chiklis) gets his just desserts or not.

The clip above is just a taste of the Shakespearean level of tragedy the characters in the show are regularly exposed to in their efforts to clean up the Rampart Division of L.A. Things have changed since the days when "Adam-12" walked the beat - the members of the strike force these days are much scarier than the drug dealers they are sworn to put behind bars... and the take home pay is a lot better.

To give you an idea of how much the show will be missed, none other than David Hinckley, Critic At Large for the NY Daily News describes the episode as "no copout."

For fans of The Shield, and Vic Mackey in particular, that's putting it mildly.

Don't miss The Shield series finale "Family Meeting" tonight at 10:00 on FX.

In the meantime, catch up on more clips of The Shield right here on Fancast!
