    One of my all time favorites.

    Don't listen to the negative reviews

    This is one of the few movies I've ever seen where the whole audience broke into spontaneous, loud applause a third of the way in.

    One of the most extraordinary films you will see this year. Take that as you want.

    Over the years, this show - and "The Closer" - formed a terrific block of crime drama. Probably my favorite since "Homicide: Life on the Street" many years ago. The cast was terrific and the decision to go in a different direction with Capt. Raydor's character, from the in "The Closer", worked very well. The casting director deserves high marks for getting wonderful actors for some of the surrounding characters: legal staff; families of victims and the villains. One of the consistencies with this show over the years was great writing, with some of the best villains I can remember on any crime show. No formulaic writing as on the very, very tired "Law &Order" series. Something that was always appreciated was an episode just about every season with a dose of humor in it. My sole criticism of the entire run was that there was absolutely no need for either the character Rusty or his story line. It added nothing to the run of the show and at times seemed very forced. (The actor wasn't the problem. The idea was.) I still don't know why the producers thought this character and story line were ever needed when the crime drama part was always so good. Definitely a series I will miss.

    I have watched portions of several episodes and I find that the overacting is outrageous, so much so as to be called amaturish. The actors may be very professional, so I must apply the blame to the directors. Professional though they may be, their lines are read like my school mates in my rural country school Christmas Concert. The emphasis, tones, and volumes are mostly chaotic and ill timed, and that has to lie with the director.

    I don't want to chase a show for 6 weeks. Go back to the original format. Oh yeah, I agree lose Rusty!

    It was great that the supporting characters stayed on, I love Flynn & Provenza etc....actually prefer Captain Raydors cool calm ways to emotional? Brenda Lee!I used to agree with most people about the Rusty character but then I read somewhere about taking the time to think about the back story of this boy & how much of his behaviour makes sense & is acted very well by the actor playing Rusty. So after that, he didn't bother me & in rewatching the episodes, I had huge sympathy for all that he had experienced in his young life, as it wasn't just when he was abandoned by his mother & her boyfriend, his life was horrible before that.A character who also moved from the Closer was Commander Taylor & I actually was very annoyed by his character change, as he was a plonker in the closer who was promoted to commander to solve a problem with him & Brenda lee, not that he deserved it & with Major Crimes, he was the new pope character? To me he wasn't equipped for that position before but then all of a sudden he was, in Major crimes.But I loved both series but these days I would say Major Crimes is better, would have been nice for Brenda Lee to have popped in now & then, but not so far. Too busy in the 99 😜
