You know, Brian, I\\\'ve never seen the Shield. I\\\'ve heard of it, but I\\\'ve never actually seen it. But it sounds like a good suggestion. Thanks!

Great show. I really am surprised you did not mention The Shield as an inspiration for criminal games.

As the seasons move on, the group is a bunch of corrupt cops, but deals with the fallout of the choices that they make. I think that using the consequences of their choices would make some interesting gaming.

Great show. Keep up the good work.
