Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Deputy Police Chief Brenda Johnson may have put in a year already with the Los Angeles police department, but that doesn't mean the transplanted Southerner fits in yet. In the second season of the TNT drama The Closer, Brenda is less a fish out of water, but she's still not completely at home with her brash colleagues--some of whom resent her potent mixture of brains and beauty. All 15 episodes from the 2006-2007 are included in this four-disc box set. And aside from a couple episodes where viewers are able to correctly guess the ending about 20 minutes into the show, the cases are taut, provocative, and highly watchable. Much of the show's success is due to Kyra Sedgwick (The Woodsman, Something to Talk About), an actress who seemed poised for movie stardom before she took time off to raise a family with husband Kevin Bacon. As bull-headed as she is soft-hearted, Brenda has a wry sense of humor and delivers her punch lines with a gentle drawl. But don't mistake gentility for gullibility: Cross her and you've made an enemy for life. Even when she's stuck in sitcom-like situations--such as trying to hide from her mother that she's living with her boyfriend--Brenda brings believability to her situation. From the first episode (dealing with the investigation of a brutally murdered police officer) to the last (Brenda's attempt to bring down a terrorist organization), Sedgwick is riveting; no wonder, then, that the Golden Globes honored her in 2007 as best actress in a TV drama. Rounding out the cast are J.K. Simmons (The Spider-Man franchise) as Assistant Chief Will Pope, Jon Tenney (Fools Rush In) as her boyfriend Fritz, and Anthony John Denison (Wild Things) as hard-nosed Detective Andy Flynn. --Jae-Ha Kim

Product Description

Brenda's back. Finally accepted by her LAPD homicide team after a year of hard-won victories, Deputy Police Chief Brenda Johnson spends less time fighting her co-workers and more time fighting the bad guys - like whoever left a body in Provenza's garage, or dropped a porn star's head in a dumpster, or offed a drug-addicted heiress. And there's almost as much happening on the domestic scene as the crime scene: Gabriel and Daniels kindle a romance and Brenda and Fritz put the flame under theirs when Fritz moves in. Kyra Sedgwick reprises her acclaimed role of Brenda and makes her the brilliant, complex, flawed, funny and totally irresistible heart of this crime-series powerhouse. Clue yourself in!

First Brenda has made me confess--I love this show. The second season features some complications --for Brenda. Fritz proposes moving in and being asked out on a date by her boss spurs her to say yes even though she probably should say no. Then he moves out. Why? Brenda's mom (Francis McDormand)comes to town and, well, she'd just be horrified if her adult daughter had a live-in boyfriend.

The cases vary from bizarre (a police officer and psycho killer manage to kill each other at exactly the same time even though the they weren't standing in the right proximity)to sad (a juror dies just before she and the jury are about to annonce a verdict for a client of a heart attack. It turns out that the jury was threatened). This second season continued the terrific writing,acting and direction as Brenda tried to crack difficult murder cases by cracking the suspects. Kyra Sedgewick continues to be top notch in the role and I'm disappointed and surprised that she hasn't won more awards for her performance. The reality is that this show has such a small but devoted audience (relatively large for basic cable though and TNT)that it's easy to overlook. You shouldn't.

We get a short featurette on the show this time around, a gag reel and deleted scenes. Thank you TNT/Warner for including some nice extras this time around!

She still works for the same cranky boss (now single and who wants to ask her out on a date no less)that she once had an affair with and still pursues her passion of junk food just as ruthlessly as she pursues criminals. The second season is presented in anamorphic so it fills up a widescreen TV. The picture looks terrific.

5.0 out of 5 stars THANK YOU...THANK YOU... June 14, 2007
Format:DVD
No one says Thank You as well or as much as Brenda Johnson in this remarkable series. Kyra Sedgwick is brilliant as Johnson, the "closer" who takes on closing important criminal cases, with the aid of her diverse team. Sedgwick consumes the screen with her intensity; her Southern charm; her absentmindedness, her craving for sweets. The show is sublime in its internal relationships, and Sedgwick's pairing with Jon Tenney as her lover, Fritz, is consummately believable and refreshing. The writers have managed to integrate personal stories with the main plots quite well, and the whole series is nearly perfect. I was a little disappointed in the two part finale, which involved terrorists and such, but it was still a good if not great episode. The rest of the season is just fine, with good support from G. W. Bailey, J.K. Simmons, Tony Denison, Corey Reynolds, Robert Gossett, Raymond Cruz, Gina Ravera and Michael Paul Chan. But it's Kyra's show and even though she can sometimes be irritating, she is nonetheless a great character.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Apparently, Warner Home Video heard our complaints about their presentation of Season 1 of "The Closer" because Season 2 is definitely better. The quality is smoother and they have more deleted scenes as well as a gag reel and in depth discussion about the beginning and evolution of this unusual woman and her team.

The first season shows us the awkward attempts of the new Deputy Chief of Priority Homicie, Brenda Leigh Johnson, and her team to function as such. They fought through their misconceptions and prejudices to become a top group of investigators with the best interrogator to seal the deal.

Season 2 began with "Blue Blood" which dramatized the transformation of those serving under Deputy Chief Johnson with barely concealed hostility to loyal defenders as they investigate the suspicious death of another police officer. Season 2 also shows how willing Brenda is to support her people, even when they have pulled a lame stunt, such as is found in "To Protect & Serve", which features Detectives Provenza and Flynn in a few hilarious moments.

Season 2 ended with "Overkill" a dramatic offering, which left the future of our heroes in doubt. Months later TNT aired two one-hour specials, "Serving the King, Pts 1 & 2, which tied up those loose ends with great style. Kevin Bacon, husband of star, Kyra Sedgwick, directed one of the episodes.

Season 1 focused on the dissension among the Priority Homicide team under their new leader. Season 2 focuses on how effective the team is now that they trust and even admire each other. Throw in conflict with the FBI, Brenda's boyfriend Fritz - who is an FBI agent, Kitty getting outside; Captain Taylor's continuing attempts to undermine Deputy Chief Johnson and the Chief's marital problems and viewers find enough drama, humor and intrigue to keep them watching repeatedly, in addition, anxiously waiting for Season 3.

5.0 out of 5 stars Five Stars August 7, 2007
Format:DVD
Easily one of the best shows on t.v. the second season of the Closer was just as perfect as the first season. The entire cast is excellent. It is almost like a sweet treat watching the team like Provenza and Flynn with their cracks as it to watch Brenda get her suspect to confess. Each epsoide is well acted and well written. Most are serious cases but with a little humor others like Serve and Protect are so funny your laughing through the entire epsoide.
