A season of only 10 episodes proves a rousing follow-up for The Closer
17 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Continuing a popular television series such as The Closer with a powerful headliner like Kyra Sedgwick is a tricky risk. But in the case of MAJOR CRIMES that risk was most assuredly worth taking. Even in the final episodes of The Closer the new leader of the police group was introduced and the adjustment by the staff was shared with the viewers

  • a smart factor in adjusting to a new start.

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 has sculpted her role and serves in her lead role as head decision maker of her squad. The manner in which she manages the ongoing story of Rusty who is contacted by his estranged biological father Daniel Dunn (Ian Bohen) is particularly well handled by every member of the cast, proving that this first class squad of policemen/women have a lot more going for them than just the usual point and shoot! MAJOR CRIMES is a successful series, a fact honoring all who made The Closer a special program. Welcome to Mary McDonnell. The shoes fit very well!
