Trivia

Because of the show's popularity and continuing positive ratings, season 4 was extended to 23 episodes - 4 more than any previous season. (Season 1 had just 10 episodes, and seasons 2 and 3 had 19 episodes each.) Besides, creator James Duff revealed on an interview that the extra episodes were given because TNT didn't have much programming for mid-February, so they asked Duff to create a five-episode arc.

Character development and plot movement
18 September 2012 | by See all my reviews

Major Crimes has taken the already rich and developed characters of The Closer and endowed them with more back story and more emotional depth. I particularly like that every character is now up front and am thoroughly enjoying the interplay among the characters. The new teen character is helping to expose a tender side of Lt. Raydor. Kudos to all the actors for developing such dynamic and sympathetic portraits.

In addition, the writing and directing is exemplary. The asides and business among the characters enriches the relationships, and the plots are moving, sometimes at breathtaking speed, but also with a rhythm that enhances the tension and release of the plot line. This show is the highlight of our television viewing week!
