Well, And Merry Christmas to You, Too
16 June 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

On first viewing I thought Fred Willard (who I like) was way over the top, with everyone standing around waiting for his ad libs to end.

But today, on fourth viewing, I have to say the episode stands up very well - and is very funny.

This series brought together a group of my favourites - I was so excited to see them all the opening season. I admire them all - the only actors whose work I didn't know were Phillip P. Keene as Buzz and Jon Tenney as Brenda's husband (later discovered he went to college with my sister-in-law). At first I didn't recognise Tony Denison (Flynn) but then rewatched some of his earlier work - great to see him portray a totally different character.

This is the first time I ever purchased a DVD of anything, the first three seasons of The Closer. Well worth it. About my favourite series of all time.
