Go into bold new territory with television's favorite squad of detectives! Set in the Los Angeles Police Department, Major Crimes picks up where successful series The Closer leaves off, centering on what it takes to secure an airtight conviction, and exploring how the police and prosecutors work together to build a solid case that results in a suspect confessing, signing a plea agreement or being found guilty in a court of law. With Academy Award® and Emmy® nominee Mary McDonnell as Captain Sharon Raydor, the series also stars The Closer's G.W. Bailey, Tony Denison, Michael Paul Chan, Raymond Cruz and Phillip P. Keene, along with Kearran Giovanni and Graham Patrick Martin, with The Closer veterans Jon Tenney and Robert Gossett also appearing. With the same stellar producing team in place, Major Crimes delivers the same high caliber of action and drama as the hit series it follows.]]>

So now Captain Sharon Raydor, portrayed but the cool, assured, soft spoken Mary McDonnell steps in to guide the cast of characters well known and loved by viewers - from the crusty to the feisty and the devoted including G.W. Bailey, Tony Denison, Michael Paul Chan, Raymond Cruz, Phillip P. Keene, Erin Cummings, Samantha Cutaran, Kearran Giovanni, Robert Gossett et al. One character introduced in the final episodes of The Closer as a troubled kid - Rusty Beck (Graham Patrick Martin) - provides not only a sense of continuity that made The Closer so compelling, but his presence as the waif for whom Captain Raydor agrees to provide foster care allows us to see both the tender side of this somewhat enigmatically distant woman while offering some solid psychological coaching for Rusty that shows us more strongly how she will serve in her lead role as head decision maker of her squad.
After the first few episodes it looks like a successful series, a fact honoring all who made The Closer a special program. Welcome to Mary McDonnell. The shoes fit pretty well so far. Grady Harp, September 12
The result is something pretty fun to watch. The other characters have started to change in this environment as the chemistry has changed. Provenza is a bit darker and more of a lead..just as one example. All of the other characters have continued to develop..which is amazing considering for them..this is a season 8.
So if you are a fan of "The Closer", I highly recommend "Major Crimes". It's not a rehashed replacement in my opinion. It is just a good show. I will miss Brenda, Pope, and Gabriel to be sure. I'll miss the relationship with Fritz and Brenda. The good news is "Major Crimes" is developing some new story arcs for us to enjoy and even a few new characters.
It's not unlike work in real life. Every few years..the staff does change.
Still, it wouldn't hurt to have one of the characters say at an appropriate time, "Thank you. Thank you very much," with a darling southern drawl...[...][[...]
