The lovingly-sarcastic banter is the best part of Major Crimes. Each character brings his or her own complex personality to the mix. As for the ER doc you called Dr. Obnoxious, I thought she added a bit of salt to a storyline that could easily have dipped into the too-sweet category. Good to see someone who was clearly competent and would do right by Flynn but who stayed out of the department's business. All in all a great show. I take hope from the previews that concentrate on the next case that there is a happy resolution to Andy's surgery.
Great episode. Loved the legal issues. I like the way Eli has become a richer character and less a cartoon. I would prefer that he find a man of his own rather than a woman.
Really? You think that is what Frank would have done? Have you watched this show ever?
Finally an episode where Tony doesn't act like a buffoon. 5 stars for that alone.
Really didn't like the show. Judith was embarrassing, the superstition was preposterous, Thoroughly bored with Tony as resident jack ass and I pegged the bad guy the second I saw him. It may be time to retire this show.
Used to watch Jane on Kyle XY. She's playing the same character on this show and I don't find her very interesting. On the other hand, I love Sullivan Stapleton on Strike Back and though he doesn't have the sly humor of that show, he is easy on the eye. I hope the writers can sustain the storyline. Started out like gangbusters but I'm already beginning to find it repetitive.
I binge watched the first 4 episodes available on Comcast OnDemand, and I can tell you the series only gets better. The characters become even stronger and the actors are uniformly excellent. The period music is perfect without taking over. And the ethical issues raised are ones that still trouble our society. This will be one show I will make time for in my schedule.
How can Mike's situation ever end well? His secret will cloud everything he ever does. If a lawyer is a fraud, he can't practice law. Period. So he must leave the firm and go back to financial deal making or get an online law degree. University of Phoenix perhaps? Or maybe that bike messaging spot is still available.
So glad to read the response of one who has read the series. I haven't had the pleasure, but the raw beastiality of the sex in this episode was totally repellant to me and I actually changed channels for a few minutes. It seemed produced for a different audience than those who are attracted to the romance and time travel of the story. And then to have Black Jack gone in an instant was very unsatisfying. I hope we get back to a more enjoyable story next season.
I knew this show would be wonderful because, based on previous performances, all the actors were first rate. The dialog was tailored beautifully for each individual. So sorry CBS didn't give it a fair try. I'm guessing the Sunday evening crowd who preferred strong women characters just didn't warm up to this quirky buddy show. I will be sad to see it go but I do think the ending of the last episode can also serve a a series finale.
