I'm confused. Sykes appeared to be very pregnant in the opening scenes but by the end of the show no longer pregnant. Explanations??

I have to agree with most here that while I was looking forward to Major Crimes because I love the cast, this new formula is not going to make it. The best thing about The Closer was how the cast interacted, joked, argued, etc. WIth no one liking or trusting Raydnor there is nothing to interest me. And while there probably is a lot of plea bargaining in the justice system, it is not fun. Watching Brenda "work" a confession was great. Watching her humanity with the junk food being her outlet was great. This sucks (for lack of a better word). And what are we doing? Replacing the black male detective who actually was the moral backbone of the group, with an ass kissing black female? Not a good choice!

I did not care for Major Crimes. Introducing Sharon as an antagonist created lack of chemistry between actors. They seemed visibily uncomfortable. Taylor is stiff as the new Asst. Chief and Raydnor needs to become human really fast. Regardless how good future scripts and story lines will be, I don't see Major Crimes lasting more than one season. Brenda Lee. where are you???

I did not like Major Crimes. I was bored after 15 minutes. I like the cast of Closer. I didn't like plea bargining although that probably does happen, it shouldn't. It made the law and the people who risk their lives, look bad. Raydnor was not a strong enough charter to take Brenda's place. I don't see this show making it.

Hard to see how Raydor trashing Brenda's legacy (and methods) will work out with viewers. I know I didn't like Raydor's character at all - too arrogant and critical of how the unit operated with Brenda in charge. As of now it's a 'fail' from me.

Firstly just when I started to like Cpt Raydnor... 'Major Crimes' premiered. She is like the Scrooge of this show, she doesn't get a thing, nobody likes her (or people just pretend to do so)she has no personality whatsoever and as Provenza pointed out she has no knowledge about how to handle homicide - so why is she in charge?. Secondly why is Taylor in charge? I think that we had already established (first season of The Closer) he isn't good in what he does, he had some kind of media-handling-related job which was fine (less screen time for his annoying gestures and remarks) but him supervising Major Crimes? Seriously? I don't know if it's even worth mentioning but for viewers what matters is satisfaction that comes out of catching bad guy AND getting confession (the drama that comes with it) that RESULTS in him getting what he deserved.Not to mention the fact that I don't really care about this Rusty, had they put Brenda in charge of finding his mother that would be interesting seeing her soft side but does Raydnor have any side to her? I think not. So for now it's no deal.

I was looking forward to viewing this new show. I fell asleep the last 15 minutes of this show.

Been watching the new Major Crimes, and beginning to wonder if it's going to be worth watching in the future. One problem is the added cast member, Sikes...... Appears to be one real dumb ass. We'll see!

I agree, I did not like how Pope threw Brenda to the wolves to cover his own political agenda. This last season of the closer really placed a wedge there and I hate how Brenda left - after not only being Right all along, but also being disgraced by the Johnson Rule as well as the suspension ..... Not a very professional career ender for the Lady who got results each week for past seven years. At least she also took Gabriel with her, but I don't like this new LAPD agenda to plea everything out. It looks weak and reminds me of negotiating with terrorists.

i do not Major Crimes if they are going to make deals with criminals. I loved the closer and no ne will take her place or that show. I cannot watch this major Crimes even though I love all the characters especially the investigators. Theynmake deals with criminals and that is not the way law goes.
