Gosh, now that you mention it, no.  I just assumed the reflective
surface wouldn't make the plastic conductive.  Be right back...

I just went hunting about the house for some reflective mylar.  I found a
potatoe chip bag and measured the resistance along the reflective side of
the bag where it was exposed along the seam.  It wasn't conductive and 
now my wife is *sure* I'm crazy. 

So if the potatoe chip bag is representative, reflective mylar isn't
conductive and won't make a grounded shield.
