The Shield Is Extra-Ordinary In 'No Ordinary Family'

Post  Webmaster on Fri Sep 24, 2010 11:53 am

When fans last saw Michael Chiklis on FX's police drama "The Shield," his character, rogue detective Vic Mackey, had confessed his nefarious ways in the LAPD in exchange for immunity and a desk job, but he was still heading out, armed, into the night.



It's very likely that, coming off "The Shield," Chiklis had his pick of hard-hitting, gritty drama scripts, but he had something else in mind.

"I want to entertain people," he says. "Let me entertain you. We don't have the constitution for (gritty drama) anymore, because we're already too busted up from the world. You're just like, if you see one more news item that shatters your nervous system, one more kidnapping, one more war … we're on the precipice of the Great Depression.

"So let us entertain you."

And in case anyone was wondering, there are no "The Incredibles"-type matching stretchy suits on the horizon.

"Oh, my God," Chiklis says, "heavens, no. You do not want to see me in Lycra. No, no."

He tells of a sketch he received, done by the artist who creates Jim Powell's police sketches for the show, depicting Chiklis surrounded by the show's producers, who are holding up a pair of superhero-style tights.

"The legend is, 'Never gonna happen,' " Chiklis says. "I'm standing there, like, 'Never gonna happen!' It's already framed in my office on my wall. It's hilarious."

Even though I enjoyed Chiklis in "The Shield", my instincts about this one is that it will be sharing the same fate as most of the new shows, a very limited run.

The special effects are what set this series apart from the others.
