We own all the seasons of "The Closer" on DVD. In fact, we own them in the most expensive possible way, because we buy the individual episodes on iTunes so we can watch them on the computer while we're waiting for the DVD to come out. A frequent scene in our household: my wife and I are thumbing through a deck of Netflix, and we will say, "Oh, let's just watch a Brenda." I will suggest an episode. She will say, "Is that the one where ..." (and here she describes the entire plot). I reply, "Yes, where ..." (and here I add some plot details). "Okay." Then we watch the episode again and throughly enjoy it.

I've been told, in some English class long ago, that the mark of a "classic" is that you can read it over and over and still get something new out it of each time. There is only one other TV show ("Monk") that I've ever enjoyed watching repeatedly like that, and the reason is the same: the writing, acting, and directing are superb. Even when I know what is going to happen, I enjoy watching all the characters.

Kyra Sedgwick is a thoroughly believable as Brenda Leigh Johnson. In fact, I was floored when I saw her do an interview and realized that she doesn't really have a Georgia accent! Brenda is so human. Yes, she is great at extracting confessions, one way or another, but she also has her foibles, like her penchant for chocolate, her reluctance to throw away old love letters from Will Pope, her rather high-handed and ineffective parenting style with her niece, Charlie (played by her real-life daughter, Sosie Bacon, which is pretty funny).

It's not just Brenda, though. All the characters are fascinating. Personally, I identify with Lt. Provenza because, well, he's me. But Sgt. Gabriel, Flynn, Fritz, Lt.

I'd probably love it, but for some inexplicable reason it stopped being free in the middle like the other seasons were. I don't mind the idea of maybe having to pay for it, but there was no notification on screen that this was about to change.

BAD AMAZON!!! BAD AMAZON!!! BAD AMAZON!!! BAD AMAZON!!! BAD AMAZON!!!

Fantastic series. Looked forward to watching one or two episodes every night. Now Amazon Has taken it away from it's Prime members and we are required to pay for the remaining episodes. This really stinks. You get us interested and then drop us.

As a Prime member I have watched 4 1/2 seasons. One or two episodes per night. Now Amazon has pulled the plug and we have to pay to watch all remaining episodes. No warning, no apology, just a stick it to the loyal customer attitude. I have to rethink my Prime membership.

loved season 1-5 on Amazon Prime - 5 stars ; however it would appear that to continue to watch, not only did we pay a membership fee to sign up for Amazon Prime to be able to watch all kinds of offerings, now Amazon has chosen to charge us to continue watching The Closure, (my guess is that we actually watched the series and liked it) Seems they will also be charging $1.99 per episode should we need to go back to review or revisit that episode, even more money for newer released episodes. We will NOT be watching or reviewing! We already paid for the membership and likely will cancel it. If I were you, I'd just wait until Netflix picks up this extremely good drama series.

Here we go again.....these gems are released and we watch marathon fashion over a few days until all are consumed and we are going...what happened..no we can't wait another year until the next.....sniffles. Meantime we are so having fun....can't do a spoiler cause of course we are only through disk 1. On to disk two now and no I won't tattle or say anything....suprised at what wasn't addressed such as much to do about Fritz and the Chiefs after wedding or honeymoon time...wasn't even addressed. Just jumped right back into the same fun show without missing a beat.

Oh gotta go....the next disk is in place...and on hold till I get down there....later and enjoy! PS we don't have paid TV up here so depend on the DVD sets
but think perhaps this is the way to go. Even if someday we actually are forced to buy TV via Cable or Satelite......love the series...as good neighbors we all share them.....in fact that reminds me....our neighbors still has the last Prison Break set.....gosh I hope The Closer goes for at least 10 years...as long as the writers stay fresh and the actors have fun too.

Usually by the fifth season a show is getting a little stale, but in truth The Closer is still just as fresh and surprising as the first season! I congratulate the writers!

The closer: Season 5

This is the show that keeps you coming back for more and more after every single episode!!

I stated watching this at my fiancées house and I jumped in a couple seasons in and instantly fell in love with this show! Some of the best writing and filming of a show that I have ever seen too!! Be prepared to binge watch this show and stay up all night watching and then all day thinking about what you just watched and waiting to come home to re watch!!!

By the later seasons of shows they start to become dragged out and boring but this one keeps on giving!! I love it!
