The detectives in the LAPD's major crimes division are still reeling from the departure of Brenda Leigh Johnson and the realization that Captain Raydor is now in charge. Unlike Brenda, Raydor is determined to lead them with a more team-oriented approach, sharing the credit with the people with whom she works. Raydor's hardest job will be gaining the trust and confidence of her detectives, who aren't quick to forget her past, especially Provenza, who has trouble taking orders from her.

the mcdonnel character watered-down, superficial, bureaucratic, suzy-cream-cheese, smarm ruins the show. too bad. most of the characters that made the closer a great show are still here.

I agree with all the comments. I loved the Closer but this is just as good. It picked up right when Brenda left. I didn't like Captain Raydor while Brenda was in charge - but I liked what the writer did with the character ( a woman in charge with heart). There were some really good cases the detectives need to solve. I love detective shows and this is wonderful.

Another series about crimes in a big city, a spin-off of The Closer (reason that Rusty was in each episode). Focus is on the salty crew of aging police officers with great human touch in dealing with each other and the victims.

With the departure of Deputy Chief Brenda Johnson the Major Crimes Unit of the LAPD is put under the command of Captain Sharon Raydor. Many in the unit are skeptical of her ability to command and Lt. Provenza is also bitter that he didn't get the job. Assistant Chief Russell Taylor, Captain Raydor and the LA District Attorney's office decide that cutting deals for lesser crimes but with substantial jail time is a financially better tactic than trying to obtain convictions through expensive jury trials and appeals. A key witness in the Stroh murder case, Rusty Beck, needs protection, supervision and a home. Captain Raydor decides to become Rusty's guardian. Throughout the season Rusty lives with Captain Raydor and attends a Catholic school. Major Crimes continues to pursue their high profile cases as well as adding Detective Amy Sykes to the unit. The cases are interesting but overall the series lacks the humor that permeated The Closer series.

Rusty: I shouldn't be going to this school. I'm not even Catholic.
Raydor: Just walk around with a guilty expression on your face. You'll fit right in.
Sanchez: (at the crime scene) Anything wrong, senor?
Provenza: Other than watching everything I care about being taken from me as I shuffle towards the grave and having my breakfast interrupted by another murder, not much.

"I can't tell him I want him to stay because what if his father turns out to be a terrific human being? And, on the other hand, I can't push him to see Mr. Dunn. It would be like asking him to leave. And if he goes...Rusty comes with certain challenges and very frankly, I would like to be sure that this guy is up to the job."

Sanchez: Let's go. I'll buy you a cup of coffee.
Rios: Oh, does this mean you're not mad at me any more?
Sanchez: No. It means I'm going to buy you a cup of coffee.
