    I have so happy to know that Major Crimes will be on way, way into 2013. Hopefully there will be years and years of this show. Thank you all for giving us characters that are so easy to relate to and as well as like.

    I love this show & love the way the other characters are getting more of the 'lime light'. The characters are not homogenized & have their own idiosyncrasies, which makes for interesting viewing. And the characters have a real rapport with each other. Nice work everyone - I'm a fan!
