4.0 out of 5 stars Something different 24 Feb 2007
Format:DVD
Kira Sedgwick is The Closer, newly imported from Atlanta as Deputy Chief in LA's prestigious new murder squad: so far, so seen-it-before. One difference is Sedgwick herself, sassy Southerner in a male department, resented and disliked, hopelessly sloppy and disorganised in her private life, trailing romantic failures in her past career, a faded beauty past her best and not bothering to conceal it but sure of herself in the job and abrasively not concealing that either. Definitely not one of those impossibly young, glamorous and well-groomed females we are used to in the standard cop spin-offs. A second difference is the supporting cast, all credible in their roles - more Law and Order than CSI - and mercifully not one of those irritating white college jocks in sight. A third difference is the taut and realistic script, and a fourth, most important of all, down-to-earth believable cases, again true to the tradition of the original Law and Order series, and a relief from the grotesqueries and mad excesses which have come to dominate CSI and it's spinoffs, or L&O SVU and L&O CI. The Closer looks like being a winner.

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable enough! 16 Mar 2010
Format:DVD
This series (so far - up to episode 10 of 13) is enjoyable enough, although not enough to buy any R1 DVDs of future seasons!

I was surpised that a couple of reviewers criticise the leading actress, as she is great given what she is given to work with (then again, lots of folks mistake an actor/actress with their character)!

Overall, relatively predictable for me, but with some nice comic touches :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant show!!! 18 Jun 2007
Format:DVD
I cannot agree with the negative comments made by some of the reviewers here. This show is brilliant, as is Kyra (wife of Kevin Bacon). I also love Boston Legal and Criminal Minds, CSI and many other fantastic US imports. The writing IS good, and the acting IS good and the characters ARE believable and we, in my family, LOVE IT. WATCH IT - and PERLEEZE, DO NOT CLOSE YOUR EYES!! Thank you, thank you so murch. (quote Brenda Lee)

4.0 out of 5 stars Funny and Well Written Series 16 Jan 2010
By Karen
Format:DVD
Some cracking actors take these regular tales of police procedural and add their own timing and experience to make this into one of the funniest shows I've seen in years

4.0 out of 5 stars Frustrated 27 Aug 2011
By Atalos
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Why are we not getting the rest of these seasons. This is a terrific show. Maybe because there is not enough big bangs and sex in it? Catching criminals by good interview techniques, now there is a good idea. I was annoyed when I first watched season one because season two was not available. I have just watched season one again and am annoyed all over again that I cannot get season 2. This is worse than when they finish a terrific show after one season. Frustrating!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Where are the UK DVD releases 22 July 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A great show and I have even been able to get hold of a Season 2 DVD copy through Amazon market place.But where are the UK releases? Is there some reason why it does not appear to be released here? Someone is missing out on a great opportunity because,I believe,that if copies were available in this country it would sell like the proverbial hot cakes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect casting 13 July 2008
Format:DVD
This show is fantastically entertaining. There are two main reasons for this - both the ensemble cast and the writing are great.The actors deliver the delightfully snappy dialogue in a way which must bring joy to the scriptwriters and makes the most of the quirky situations. The development of a disfunctional group of colleagues into a close and effective team is both believable and fun. OK the desire of the criminals of LA to spill the beans at the drop of a hat seems unlikely but then not all criminals are criminal masterminds and Deputy Chief Johnson must come as a surprise to them. The actors are all great but the two most cynical members of the squad are my favourites- I just can't decide whether I love Lt Flynn or Lt Prevenza more. They are a great double-act.
