They were originally charted as an Anti-Gang task force but have expanded their influence to protecting drug dealers who share their profits with them. The leader of the team is Detective Vic Mackey (Michael Chiklis) a tough as nails veteran office who often runs his squad with a tough military precision. Lately things have been rough on Vic. In this season the pressure is on to force him into early retirement. This came after numerous attempts to get him on corruptions charges failed. The most recent one, which Lt. Jon Kavanaugh (Forrest Whitaker) from Internal Affairs failed to get the required evidence on Vic and the team. Kavanaugh was so obsessed with convicting them that he lost all perspective and was disgraced when he is caught planting evidence to frame Vic and the team. Things were also growing more tense between Vic and his ex-wife, Connie (Cathy Cahlin Ryan). After being pulled into testify against Vic by Kavanaugh she is now worried if Vic goes to jail how the expensive school for their two autistic children will be paid.
This season is where the stakes were raised and the final count for the last episodes were established. It’s been a brutal ride to follow Vic Mackey into Hell, but it was great. All ten episodes of this season are featured on the set with great A/V quality. Throw in a ton of deleted scenes and commentaries and you’ve got yourself quite the evening. This is a recommended blind buy.
