Tread Perilously — The Shield: Co-Pilot

Tread Perilously returns to cop shows with the great early-aughts program The Shield. Unfortunately, it means watching the second season episode “Co-Pilot.”

Detective Vic Mackey angles to get himself and his partner on the new anti-gang Strike Team in the soon-to-open substation in the Farmington District of Los Angeles. He hopes to make a difference with the added freedom of the task force, but the stations new commanding officer, Captain David Aceveda, has different ideas. Meanwhile, sycophantic detective Dutch Wagenbach hopes to partner up with a legendary detective ready who is ready to retire.

Special guest Sarah Madden joins Erik and Justin to parse an episode that is baffling in its attempt to be a pilot while still requiring a surprising amount of knowledge about the show in order to understand it. Justin and Erik recall some of their favorite moments from the series while Erik once again calls for Ronnie Gardocki to get his freedom.
