I will say right off, this is a review of the series in general. Seems silly to write one for each year. I like so many others watched this when it was on the air. It was one of the few shows I set up on my TIVO with a Season pass. Like most TV police shows it had a lot of procedural mistakes. Despite this. It tried hard to make it believable. The characters were a great team. They all had they're own charm and make this one of the best police shows ever. As sad as I was to see it end, I was glad it did when it did. As so many others on a fixed income I was forced to give up cable. I saw the 1st episode of " Major Crimes " which replaced it and it appeared it would carry on the tradition.
The fact that this show gave a look into the lives of the officers off duty as well as on made for many great story lines. Humor included.
For those who have never viewed it, (are there any) I strongly say, its a great series to slam through.

The third season has a lot of change in store for Brenda Johnson (Kyra Sedgwick). SPOILERS

Fritz proposes and Brenda has a mysterious ailment that makes her emotions go bananas for awhile. The Third season of "The Closer" is among the best to date particularly with the two two part episodes. "Til Death Do Us Part" is a complex mystery that doesn't provide easy answers for Brenda and her crack Priority Homocide Division. Many of the characters in the show also face change including a possible forced retirement for Lt. Provenza.

The set has a nice transfer with solid colors and an anamorphic widescreen transfer. The extras although not overwhelming great are solid but then you really aren't buying this for the extras are you? We get a good featurette that talks about the art of interrogation where police officers discuss how they often get confessions and how they have to do the exact roleplaying that we see on the show. We also get deleted scenes for a number of episodes as well as a gag reel. Unfortunately there aren't any commentary tracks (the strong two part episodes would have been perfect for commentary tracks since they are both the most complex and, in the case of "Next of Kin", comedic (Brenda, Fritz, Provenza and a suspect have to travel cross country to return to L.A. during the Holidays with Brenda's amusing parents).

I did run into a glitch with the second disc where the disc was either defective or there was a problem during the transfer where "frames" are skipped during an entire 10 minute segment (although the dialog is fine).

As with the previous seasons the writing, direction and acting are top notch better than a lot that we see on regular network TV. A great series continues to get better with the third season of "The Closer".

Just keep this series coming. We love it and didn't find it until after 3 were made and the fourth just about out. We fell in love hook line and sinker. Well acted, well written, well produced and ok the cat's just so darn cute. Keep them funny or make more funny ones. Not as happy with the serious ones though it's ok now and again just don't go there too often. Secret they developed a cast that plays off each other as in real people relationships. Works for them and works for the fans. More more more. More kitty too....perhaps....meow....

Kyra Sedgwick is truly unforgettable in this series. She is the best interrogator I have seen, and her whole team is the best group to crack the case wide open. I just love it.

Good theater. Well written and for the most part, well acted! Kyra Sedgwick makes you forget that she is playing this part. Her character is so alive and real to the viewer!
