In the second season of the critically acclaimed series The Closer, Deputy Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson (Golden Globe winner and Emmy® nominee Kyra Sedgwick) copes with challenges both personal and professional. For the Atlanta transplant heading up the Priority Homicide Division of the Los Angeles Police Department, her position on this elite detective squad, which handles high-profile cases of a sensitive nature, is a tenuous balancing act. She faces antagonistic roadblocks, even from her own peers within the department, and must manage a team that remains wary of her unconventional style. Meanwhile, she strives to keep her head above water in the rush and mayhem of Los Angeles, finding comfort in her relationship with FBI Special Agent Fritz Howard (Jon Tenney, Looking for Comedy in the Muslim World) - or sometimes in a package of snack cakes.]]>

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.
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.
