  • One of the best episodes of the Closer.

    By far one of the best episodes of the year. Having found Agent Howard's business card on a dead club kid was a nice start to this episode. Having Howard's character bring Brenda into the investigation is always fun for the viewer. Watching Lieutenant Provenza character parading his younger girlfriend who now we know is buying all his suits from her. Having Cruz asking about her age. Having Flynn taking cheap shots at her. Having Brenda using her cat's ashes to get what she wants. There seems to be so much fun on this show. It is apparent when watching this show, that the viewer sees this as well.moreless
  • When things are slow at Major Case, Fritz asks Brenda Leigh is she'll help with a missing person case. Eventually it becomes a drug and murder case and Brenda Leigh and her squad moves things forward so the FBI can get their man.moreless

    Interesting and entertaining story of interdepartmental relationships. It was fun to see David Hewlett of Stargate: Atlantis as FBI Agent Moore. So Brenda and her team do all the work and once the FBI makes them temporary FBI Agents they tell them nothing.



    Of course Fritz knows Brenda and he knows this won't sit well with her. So she and her team go out and solve the case for the FBI. At the end she is so funny as she deals with Fritz and Moore. "I want the murder and you can have the drug bust!" She's a pistol! Of course they quickly agree. Also that was a very nice thing she did for that young kid who was the victims boyfriend. The whole Kitty Johnson/Howard story and the she/he parts were cute. Watching the babysitting video and the little moratorium to Kitty at the end was nice. It's nice to see a couple on TV portrayed so straight forward. Able to disagree and still keep their relationship alive and kicking. It's good for people to see that I believe. Also the ongoing Provenza story line is precious as well!



    Always entertaining and never boring. The Closer really hits the mark for drama. No wonder it's the most or one of the most popular shows on cable. Thanks for reading...moreless
