Editorial Reviews

Brenda Johnson (Kyra Sedgwick) arrives from Atlanta to lead the LAPD's Priority Homicide Division the special division that deals with explosive high-profile criminal cases. Almost immediately her mix of brassy toughness and Southern sass begins to rub the mostly male policemen the wrong way. They resent this eccentric folksy and occasionally neurotic woman running the show. But when it comes to her CIA-trained interrogation skills they're forced to admit that she's a pro's pro a psychological surgeon who gets inside the subjects' minds and draws out their darkest secrets and confessions. And that's why she's the closer. This release includes the first two seasons of the show.Format: DVD MOVIE Genre: TELEVISION/SERIES & SEQUELS Rating: NR UPC: 085391113287 Manufacturer No: 111328

First up--Brenda Johnson has made me confess with her wily ways--the second season of "The Closer" is equally as good as the first. There are some plot developments that may season two unique though. First up, Brenda's mom (Francis McDormand)visits. Fritz moves in. Then movies out because Brenda's mom will be staying. As usual Brenda makes the bad guys talk whether it be the bizarre (the case of the cop and the psycho killer who mysterious killed each other at exactly the same time)or unexpected (a juror drops dead from cardiac arrest during a trial where the jury had been threatened).

I love this show with its mix of the quirky character of Johnson (who constantly fights the urge--not successfully I might add--to eat junk food)and her ability to figure out a crime. Unlike "Monk" this isn't focused more on the comedy elements but integrates them into a rich, suspenseful dramatic series. Sedgewick deserves to be nominated for an Emmy for her portrayal.

A fun and fascinating mystery ride, "The Closer" focuses on Deputy Chief of Police Brenda Leigh Johnson (Kyra Sedgwick) is a fish out of water lured from Atlanta to L.A.by Assistant Police Chief Will Pope (J.K. Simmons J.J. Jameson from "Spider-Man" and "Spider-Man 2") lead an elite unite that tackles high profile murder cases with her unusual approach to solving crimes. Her Georgia accent immediately sets her apart from her colleagues. She's much savvier underneath her down home accent than many give her credit for allowing her, like Columbo to tackle crimes that others might not be able to solve. Like Columbo and Monk she's got her own quirks (an addiction to junk food, she shows up at a crime scenes with her sick cat--named Cat--in a paper back and her southern charm can't quite hide her abrasive personality).

i absolutely love the closer. kyra sedgwick is an amazing actress, and she brings something special to this character. i can't imagine anyone else other than kyra sedgwic as brenda lee johnson. the rest of the cast is great, as well. there's so much junk on tv that i can't stand, but this show just sucked me in from the first time i saw it. what i really enjoy is the fact that it's not just about "the crime." there's a lot of about the lives of the characters. well...mostly brenda, but she's "the closer." basically, the acting is great, the stories are intriguing, and it's just an amazing show.

I started watching the show towards the end of the second season but was immediately hooked! The DVD's are great because they have some extra footage and a great background feature about how the show started. I think this show is much better than the other cop shows out there!

Great story lines and phenomenal writing make this the best summer series on tv. Kyra Sedgwick was born for this role. Some people may say her southern accent is too strong, but I find it a delight. Her politeness to her colleagues while delegating assignments is refreshing. She's the best project manager I've seen in a long time. She leaves no stone unturned. The way she eats her sweets and savors every bite is sensual and I look forward to seeing what the writers have in store for Brenda and Fritz. Can't wait for season three to come out on DVD.

I got this as a present for my wife because she has been a fan but I didn't watch it on TV. As it tuned out the DVD is much more enjoyable than the show on TV because the video and sound are much better than we can get thru our local cable provider. I became a fan and recommend it to anyone that may have been on the edge.

This is "the best" show on television. Kyra Sedgwick and the entire cast are perfect. The writing and production are also "first rate". There is a nice blend of quirky, funny moments woven into the fabric of the underlying story-line.

I like this show. First, because it is in L.A and since I am from L.A, I believe L.A has a seedy underbelly just like many of the cold and dark cities of the east coast. The lead character (Brenda) is a good southern gal with commitment issues. She also has integrity so she is believable. She struggles to establish herself in a mans world and sometimes she does it and some times she falls flat on her face. Somehow she always solves the crime with the help of her team. They are a real mixed bag of personalities. It is entertaining without being over the top. Good stuff!
