Closer, The: The Complete Fourth Season (DVD)
An offbeat personality, a tough-as-nails approach and a track record as one of the country's leading investigators: These are just a few of the traits exhibited by Deputy Police Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson. 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.]]>
"Oh, for heaven's sake, it is a head!" The Southern drawl and mild exasperation are by now familiar to TV crime buffs: Kyra Sedgwick's steel-magnolia-with-a-badge, Deputy Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson. The fourth season of The Closer finds Sedgwick in super form, as the scattered, ditzy mama's girl with a weakness for junk food and a singular focus when it comes to getting perps to talk. Yet the strength of The Closer goes far beyond just Sedgwick, as formidable as she is. The ensemble cast is also stellar, and very human and believable. Johnson's fellow cops (among whom Johnson is, finally, one of the boys, albeit in frilly skirts) are fleshed-out and battle their own demons. And this season viewers get to know Johnson's fiancé, the FBI agent Fritz Howard (Jon Tenney), much better, along with his "psychic" sister (the unforgettable Amy Sedaris), and Brenda's doting parents, as both families prepare for the happy couple's impending nuptials--if serial killers and terrorist plots will only give them a little break. The boxed set includes the full season, along with delicious extras, including an unforgettable blooper reel (the cast really does seem to have a blast shooting this series, as viewers have long suspected; and don't miss guest star Jennifer Coolidge's R-rated ad lib café scene). There's also an informative featurette with Corey Reynolds (the hunky Sgt. Gabriel) and LAPD Det. Mike Berchem, an adviser to the series; deleted scenes, and more. Thank you--thank you so much! --A.T. Hurley

The Gabriel and Daniels problems showcased why it is not good to have romance in the workplace. And of course Brenda already knows this from experience!!!
But it is very well written, Kyra at times seems to try Fritz's patience a little too much, but then we all have at times done this to our mates, this gives it that real human feeling on this show.
You feel like you are sitting in the squad room observing!
Can't wait to get started on #5!!! Come back fro the review and go on buy them, it is worth it or borrow your friend's you'll love it!!!
If you enjoyed crime dramas, particulary ones that make you think and draw you in this is one to get. If you're a fan of the previous seasons of the Closer, then this season is not one to miss. The show only gets better as the years go by for The Closer. Not all televison shows can claim that.
