The Closer: The Complete Fifth Season

The Closer: The Complete Fifth SeasonKyra Sedgwick returns as the eccentric southern belle, Assistant Chief Brenda Johnson in charge of a special crimes unit of detectives in Los Angeles.  This series has always been a hit with me as I love Sedgwick’s character and her dualing with squad members and her commander (J. K. Simmons) make this a great show.  The strength of the show is in the characters in the squad, Sedgwick’s approach to her job and her private life.  Her family gets involved too with her mother (Frances Sternhagen) helping her this season by visiting and dropping off a niece, who she is finding hard to handle.  Guest stars this season also include her real life daughter(Sosie Bacon) as her niece Charlie, and Beau Bridges, as a retired cop who has been through a few “changes” since leaving the force.

While the show takes the crime solving seriously, some of the shows are more memorable for their humor and compassion, such as when Johnson must make the difficult decision about a family pet and deal with the real emotions involved.

The four disc set contains a great widescreen picture and dolby digital 5.1 sound.  Extras include Police files: Unaired scenes,
Seen at the Crime location map, Travel to various locales where memorable series moments were shot, and a Gag reel.

Its very hard to not like “The Closer”.  Every season seems to get better and better and I can highly recommend this to just about everyone. The entire cast, strong scripts, and excellent guest stars make this a show that is entertaining week after week.
