The Shield is an American crime drama that was produced by FX and broadcast from March 12, 2002 to November 25, 2008. When the show aired in the UK and Germany, it was censored in order to get a BBFC 15 rating and a FSK 16 rating. When the 4K remastered definitive edition was released, viewers discovered that at least one of the episodes uses the censored German version.
