…That used to be the buzz-phrase for NBC’s Law and Order. But FX’s The Shield is ripped from page six of the Metro section. From tonight’s show: “You were a security guard at Chowchilla, and fathered a child by Antione’s mother.” If you don’t know, it’s ok – only regulars will “get it.”

I’m sure this season will get Glenn Close the Emmy where Oscar has slipped away from her 5 times

Update: Her only competition would be C,C.H. Pounder. I expect them to walk away with a one-two best leading-supporting Emmy sweep.

Update 2: I saw this ending (in passing) about an hour ago. And my jaw is again dropped to my chest. This establishes a ‘hole new league for network television drama.
