Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
This 2005 TNT summer-replacement series from Nip/Tuck executive producers Michael M. Robin and Greer Shephard quickly attained popularity, due to its exemplary scripts and fine ensemble acting. The first TV vehicle for three-time Golden Globe nominee Kyra Sedgwick, The Closer has given this terrific actress the showcase she has long deserved. As Deputy Police Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson, the CIA-trained interrogator who heads the LAPD's elite Priority Homicide Division, Sedgwick combines southern charm and persuasiveness with aggressive, hard-nosed work habits and impatience with department politics. Brenda isn't the type who believes in "go along to get along" -- she isn't afraid to step on toes when she feels it's necessary, which initially doesn’t sit well with her comrades. However, fellow cops Jon Tenney, G. W. Bailey, Corey Reynolds, Robert Gossett, and J. K. Simmons all begin to appreciate her unique talents as the season progresses. The Closer's first season ran to just 13 episodes, and each one is a gem. In "Good Housekeeping," Brenda defies conventional wisdom when a known sex offender is automatically suspected in the rape and murder of a housekeeper's daughter. "Fatal Retraction," an especially strong episode, has Brenda targeted by the deranged killer for whom her team is searching. And the season finale, "Standards and Practices," finds the irrepressible PHD leader plowing ahead on a high-profile investigation while shrugging off a grievance complaint that could conceivably end her career.

    The Closer

    Kyra Sedgwick plays Deputy Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson. I love this show in the first season Chief Johnson is not treated very nice because she is an outsider. But that soon changes because they realize she knows how to get her man or woman.

    Amazing!

    The on screen style and attitude that Ms. Sedgwick brings to this series makes this series one of a kind. The cast, plots, and settings are all amazing. Ms. Sedgwick is Amazing.

    Outanding Show

    I really enjoy watching this show. I can hardly wait for season 2 to come out on dvd. And season 3 to begin. I really like the way the Priority Murder Unit's relationship grew and how they solved the crimes. Kyra Sedgewick is awsome as Deputy Chief Johnson.

    Fantastic!-Great writing and acting

    This is a wonderful show. You will not be disappointed if you purchase these DVDs. I love the writing and the acting in the show, and every ending is very unexpected. If you are a lover of mystery or thriller novels, then you will love this show also.

    The Closer is Wonderful!

    This series is absolutely on my short list of favorite television shows. Deputy Chief, Brenda Lee Johnson is a quirky but top notch cop. I love how the officers on her team have come to respect and protect her.

    Really enjoy The Closer!

    If you've gotten in late on The Closer, this first season will help you understand all the background of the different characters. I really love the series and can't wait to afford the rest of the seasons!
