This was such a great TV series. Not sure why Kyra Sedgwick left the show, but the replacement series "Major Crimes" just was not the same and did not last long. I now own all seven seasons of "The Closer" and these shows are my first "go to" when nothing is on TV worth watching....which is most of the time. All the actors in this show deliver their own unique humor and/or drama to the series. The show is a balance of everything a TV show should be for family entertainment. Another great series on TNT was "King and Maxwell", which only lasted one season before not being renewed. Don't understand that one either as it was canceled before most people had a chance to discover it. Also great characters in that show including Jon Tenney who also played Kyra Sedgwick's husband in "The Closer". He was fantastic in both series.

Finished #4 last night and agree with other reviewers they have really stepped up the writing.
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!!!

One of the best shows ever 2 make an appearance on American TV. Realism, character development way past the 2 dimensional, plot twists u don't c coming, episodes that make u cry, & episodes that make u laugh. A deeply flawed protagonist who always gives her all n her tunnel vision search 4 justice, ignoring politics, orders frm superiors 2 bk off & potential bad press. How could u not cheer 4 such an unsullied seeker 2 close the case & bring ea murderer detected 2 justice by obtaining a confession, negating the need 4 an uncertain & expensive trail ? What's there not 2 like ? Haven't seen an episode yet that wasn't hi quality entertainment !!! If only I could give it 6 stars...

Die-hard Closer fan...have watched every episode of all seasons at least ten times...fun dialogue, charming character interactions and neurotic Brenda always gets her villain!

Police Procedural with lots of action, some comedy and even a little romance. Stars Kyra Sedgwick as Deputy Cheif Brenda Leigh Johnson, late of Atlanta Georgia.. She is tuff as nails but can be sugary sweet Southern Belle if the project warrants it. She is a CIA trainned interigator now working for the LAPD. The Comedy is supplied by her two senior Lieutenants played by Tony Denison and G.W. Bailey. At least once a season a whole show is dedicated to their comedic antics at solving crimes especially murder. Romance is provided by her FBI husband.

The Closer is sure to be a classic. What does one say about a show that has drama, humor, interpersonal relationships, and more. The ensemble cast has a chemistry that works. Kyra Sedgewick does an excellent job of brining the Brenda Lee Johnson to life.
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.

The characters are complex. The plot lines are realistic, at least as far as how the characters interact. Even the difficult members of the police force do something right from time to time. Sometimes the plot line is telegraphed, but most of the time there is a twist and a surprise. Even so some things are reassuringly consistent: Deputy Chief Brenda will always want to eat chocolate, will always misplace something she needs, will easily lie to and deceive people being interrogated. Her intuition is legendary. I really like the way that the scripts do not follow a timetable: Two minutes into the program some one dies. Each 10 minute segment has the newest suspect who proves not to be the right person.

Love the program...needed it to review the fun stuff on it and the serious nature of the program.

I really get a kick out of this series. Along with solving murders and other crimes in the major crimes division, there are some hilarious one liners. Very disappointed that I can no longer stream this free of charge. Did Amazon lose the rights?

We love watching the closer and not very happy with the removal of the show from Amazon Prime. It is almost like a bait and switch.
