Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Once upon a time a jolly police commissioner went about his family and professional life and happily managed to resolve any problems in a convenient one hour time frame. Perhaps sometimes two, I was young and don't really remember. He was so jolly most people probably just told him they'd been very naughty and begged forgiveness from his Santa Claus-like demeanor.
Just look at him:
Jolly as the day is long.
Then the Commish got canceled despite his jolliness. The commish got angry. To deal with his anger issues he lifted things. He lifted a lot of things. Now he's jolly but for a whole new reason. He's jolly because he knows he can horribly hurt anybody who ever thinks of canceling him ever again.
The Shield is a serial cop drama in which the cops are the protagonists but they are not heroes. The show repeatedly makes you love and root for Mackey only to brutally remind you that in the grand scheme of things they may be the worst criminals in the district. Yet I still like them. I can't think of a single episode that didn't make me want more or left me feeling disappointed in how it was written/acted. It is flat out amazing to me.
Please remember the importance of spoilers. Huge events happen in the early seasons of the shield so let's respect those who haven't seen it yet. Label your spoilers as to the season. You might want to mention if it happens at the very end of the season or right at the beginning. Examples (Real Spoilers):
Early Season 1:
VIC SHOT TERRY!
Late Season 5:
SHANE BLEW LEM!
The new season starts on the 3rd. I was excited. Then I saw the 15 minute promosode. At this point I'd kill somebody for the season to start right this instant.
The Promosode features Lem. Lem being awesome.
"All meat no heart." God I'm going to miss Lem.
