I wasn't sure about this show at first but it has grown on me. I love it. Ms. Mcdonald is no closer but she has her own strengths.I look forward to show each week. Great sequel!

I love the new show with Capt. Raydor. The episodes have been great so far......keep up the good work.She is tough, but much gentler and kinder to the people around her.....unlike Kyra's character who used people....Just as with The Closer, the characters are earning the respect and trust of the others......it works for me!!

It was a great episode, I'm really loving this show. I love the relationship between Cap. Rayder and Rusty.

About Mary McDonnell (Captain Raydor) - I think that Mary McDonnell is a terrific actress. Sure, her energy is much different than Kyra Sedgwick's but so are the characters that they portray. Raydor is introspective and cautious while Brenda would typically jump right into the fray. I like them both. I think that people have to give the show a chance. I'm excited about seeing the character development as Raydor transitions from antagonist to being a true member (and leader) of the team.

Hopefully the Rusty character will become more likeable as the story moves along. Comparing Sharon Raydor to Brenda Leigh Johnson is like comparing apples and oranges. Her character is reined in, it's who she is, and it's not necessarily bad.
Regarding the rest of the cast: It's good to see Fritz, since he's so easy on the eyes. Provenza had better grow up and not behave like Rusty, Whining is barely tolerable in a teenager and repulsive in an old codger. Taylor is ignorantly insufferable, so it would be a plus to see him smacked down on a regular basis by Sharon, since she's infinitely more intelligent.
He was promoted to Commander in an effort to shut him up when he tried to sink Brenda Leigh in the first season, not by merit. Other than the show needing an idiot, what purpose does he serve?

I can't stand Mary Macdonald, she sounds like a robot!!!!!

In a word, Raydor is BORING. Just plain boring. I never want to watch her again in any shape or form and I fear that if I continue to watch the cast fall apart (as everybody chips in to make up for her utter lack of personality), I will forget I liked them so much in the Closer. Big mistake. This will fail. It is not salvageable without a strong lead character.

Well I saw first episode and then tried to watch the second. It is not cutting it for me. There are no endearing qualities I can put my arms around. Flynn and Provenza are great but I can not for the life of me care for Raydor in no shape or form. I have cut it from my list, it is to painful to watch

I love the new show with Capt. Raydor! She has a nice, soft spoken manner about her, and she is a very good actress. I like the interaction between all of them now. While I enjoyed Brenda for awhile, her histrionics the last season or so was too much and annoying, as well as her yelling at suspects and ignoring Fritz and her family. Now they all have a chance to show what good actors they are and not be second fiddle anymore to Brenda.
