Most series go into a decline by the fourth season but there are ocassionally a few that do keep your interest beyond the fourth or fifth season. Very few improve. Closer is one that does. The seventh season finds the great cast clicking like a machine, with all the quirks of the characters we have come to care about continuing (I do miss Daniels and was sorry to see her go). The scripts are a nice mixture of drama and comedy as we have come to expect from Closer. The show revolves around Kyra Sedgwick, the head of the Major Crimes division, but several episodes allow the cast members to take center stage. Very nice. This is the best season yet. If you like Closer at all you will really like this season.

The first time I remember seeing Kyra Sedgwick was in Tai-Pan in 1986, who would have expected that young lady to evolve into this gorgeous woman. She just keeps getting better looking every year.

The eight season is scheduled to be the last, I expect they will go out on a high note. Perhaps leacve some room for a movie or two down the line.

There are only 4 television shows I actually watch and for 7 years, this has been one of them. I have waited for each new season and watched each episode avidly. Kyra Sedgewick is amazing - alternately sweet and savage and always, always, always driven by a purpose - get a confession. She is sensational in this role but she does not stand alone. Each of the cast members has grown and changed over the last 7 years, each contributes to the overall show.

And while praising the series, you cannot forget the writers who have had a wonderful run with The Closer.

The two part episode where Brenda, Fritz, Flynn and Provenza travel from Atlanta to LA in her parents RV with an armed robber in custody is funny, poignant and finally forces Brenda to tell her Mom what she really does day in and day out as the Deputy Chief of one of the largest police forces in the country. Well-written and superbly acted, the closing minutes of this episode bring tears to the eyes of all but the most jaded.

And these writers don't just do drama. Who else could have come up with an episode where Pope, Flynn and Provenza hand over all the evidence at a shooting to a Detective named...Dick Tracy? What about "Junk In The Trunk?" In this episode, Flynn is on the phone with Brenda when the car with the body in the trunk slips off the tow truck, flies down the hill behind him, hits a telephone pole and has a live electrical wire drop on it. Flynn, Provenza, the body in the garage and the ball game make up another hilarious episode.

I highly recommend this series, LOVE the Closer retrospective included in the Season 2 discs and will hate to see Kyra Sedgewick leave at the end of this season.

This is quite possibly the best show on TV (in my opinion). I love the cast, I love the writing. I keep thinking, they can't possibly do better than what they've done. And, every show is just more and more incredibly great!

For you crime drama buffs this is a season not to miss! Not buying or seeing this season would be like leaving your car window open in a rain storm. Here are the main reasons why;
1. We find out who the leak was in Brenda's team. You will be amazed to find out who it was and who it wasn't.
2. We see the stunning final chapter of Brenda's plight to catch her archenemisis, attorney (and presumed rapist and murderer) Phillip Stroh. The only case Brenda could not close.
3. How the writers found a sensical way for Brenda to leave the show without killing her. (Well done)
Look I don't know much (I admit that), but the Closer is/was an excellent show, from season one to season seven. The rewatch value of this show is very high. New generations of crime buffs will enjoy this show for a long time.
For those that remember that first season watching and rooting for Brenda. Wanting to see Brenda prove herself to the other characters that she was the real deal. Watching Brenda gain the trust and confidence of her team, the Brenda way was great. One by one they all began to accept her and we saw the begings of a exceptional show, with good writing and great chemistry. With each season the episodes just got better (but just don't take my word, see for yourself).
Now what am I going to do on Monday nights around 9 PM eastern standard time? I guess I will go back to watching that sport with the odd shaped ball or those real athletes in the WWE.

I am a huge Closer fan. I was prepared to not like the show since they do tend to type cast the southern and make fun of the accent. However, I started watching the earlier seasons and loved them. I gave Season 7 only 3 stars because of the over-arcing theme this year, which seems to be to torment and destroy Brenda (the main character). I "hope" things improve in the final 5 episodes this summer but it does not look good. I will say the murders and investigations are all still very good and the usual crew of characters are still wonderful. I even like her attorney but the storyline they are using turns me off more then makes me want to keep watching.

I will say the "cases" they are giving her a hard time over are the ones that made me stop to think about what happened, what is legal, what is right (not always the same thing) and what I would have done.

I am sad that this is the last season with Brenda. I will give Major Crimes a try but wonder if it will have the same feel without Brenda along to frustrate her bosses and protect her men.
