  • I will miss you Kyra!

    I recently stumbled across The Closer and bought all the seasons on iTunes. I watched them in a matter of months and now I really miss it! I do watch Major Crimes now and I am still enjoying it quite a bit despite the odd monotone way that Captain Raydor talks. It is actually nice to see her as a caring person with Rusty so I like that angle a lot or I would find her very very boring. Kyra brought so much to that show and her sparkle is greatly missing from this new one but I am hooked none the less. I look forward to Kyra's next project! She is an actor that I greatly respect and thoroughly enjoy watching.moreless

  • interesting show

    7.5
    of a wreckless and not really "clean" operating unit .i didnt initially like the way the storyline went but i really hoped for a shocking end where a few of them would actually go to jail for their actions



    this show could have been better if they werent portrayed as victims during the investigation (for ex)
  • The Closer rocks my Show World

    The Closer rocked my socks off!! I am really not into crime dramas, I like them,but I generally don't get into crime shows to where I want to watch them episode after episode. Brenda's lying to the suspects, brilliant, her Thank Yous are so clever! I love the hate/kind of like relationship between Brenda and Captain Raydor it's hilarious! The plots are entertaining and they almost always get the bad guy! Provanza and Flynn, good gods those two! Gabriel, I love him, he's so freaking sweet, and not to mention Shanchez and Tao! Pope has his moments, but I personally wasn't that big of a fan. I honestly start catching shows when they are at least 2 or 3 seasons in and usually not until season 5 or 6 (the closer I go into just at the begining of season 7) but truely it's an awesome show, I'm sad they are not doing it anymore, because I LOVED it and I'm generally not a crime-drama show person.moreless

    I am totally hooked! I wish these old and newest episodes could go on forever. The writing is fabulous and the acting is perfection. The cast selection is wonderful and excellent as well. I only wish I had been given a heads up to watch when this series began. Kudos to all involved, I send high praise to every single crew member. I have not been disappointed with one episode. Thank you for the hard work, and absolute stellar entertainment in every episode..

    Most sincerely,
