This "Closer" spinoff follows cases handled by the Major Crimes division of the LA Police Department. The 7-member team is headed by Capt. Sharon Raydor, whose intellectual smarts combined with a calm, even temperament help a team of experts solve high-profile murder cases. In addition to running the show, Raydor helps guide and protect her teenage charge, a witness in a horrific crime, who finds a safe refuge among members of the major-case squad.

Did You Know?


Tom Berenger and G.W. Bailey previously co-starred together in the film Rustlers' Rhapsody. See more »


A running action throughout the series was to casually slip the Miranda Warning to people they wanted to question and get them to essentially sign away their rights and was a carry over from The Closer. In 2010 though, the US Supreme Court ruled that an explicit acknowledgment that the person understands their Miranda Rights must be given. This explicit question-acknowledgment rarely was ever done which would invalidate any confession. See more »

User Reviews

Please Please dump the Rusty character
9 March 2017 | by jdonalds-5See all my reviews

My wife and I were big fans of The Closer so when it went off the air we gave Major Crimes a chance. I'm still not a huge fan of Mary MCDonnell but she's alright. The rest of the old cast that made it through to Major Crimes is just great, and the few additions are fine as well. But we just can't stand the Rusty character.

For us the Rusty character ruins the flow of the show. We enjoy one Major Crime per episode and find the Rusty story to be a disturbing diversion from what is going on in each episode. It was okay for four or five episodes but it should have been killed a long time ago.

We don't feel the Rusty character adds anything to the show, on the contrary we are bothered every time he shows up. I'm sure the actor Graham Patrick Martin is fine, its just the character we don't like. I'm getting more and more irritated by Rusty every episode.

Every time the Rusty character shows up we go into smartphone mode with one eye on the screen to see when we should refix our attention on Major Crimes instead of the weather, email, Facebook, or news on our phones.

Please Please Please lose the Rusty character and don't replace that character with another side story.
