      Season 3 – Major Crimes

      2014 Crime Drama List
      Reviews 89% 50+ Ratings Audience Score When "The Closer" came to a close, doors opened for the detectives in the Los Angeles Police Department's Major Crimes Division, with the biggest opportunity presented to Capt. Sharon Raydor. The captain is now the boss, taking over a department that hasn't forgotten her history of internal investigations targeting them and their former boss, Deputy Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson. As Raydor attempts to mend fences and gain the trust and confidence of her detectives -- her biggest foe in that regard is Lt. Provenza -- she leads a unit that works more closely than Johnson ever did with other police and prosecutors to build airtight cases. Read More Read Less Watch on Vudu Premiered Jun 10 Buy Now

      Previous Brian Tallerico I would politely call Major Crimes reliable. It's solid mystery writing most of the time but it lacks the subtlety and nuance that Sedgwick brought to her program. Jun 11, 2014 Full Review Lesley M. Smith PopMatters Major Crimes enters the second half of Series Three awash, as usual, in saccharine and hackneyed storylines. 3/10 Nov 25, 2014 Full Review Mark Trammell TV Equals The way the case unfolded was really compelling, and unpredictable, and it definitely stuck with you. I'd have to say in the grand scheme of things, the show has nothing to be ashamed of here. Major Crimes is off to a fine start, as far as I'm concerned. Jun 12, 2014 Full Review Carissa Pavlica TV Fanatic The acting was fantastic and all the characters were on their A game, but the topic was so brutal it was difficult to watch. 4.5/5 Jun 10, 2014 Full Review Next

      Previous Audience Member Major Crimes is a great! The spin off from the equally entertaining "The Closer" the momentum has continued in this show. The main draw is the ensemble cast. they are interesting and thier stories are quite involved with the main story line many times. Not many main stream shows offer such interesting plots either. A quality program with humor, interesting plots and stellar cast. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member A close second to The Closer -- and that makes this show pretty darn good. I love Sharon's girl in charge calming voice and Sanchez's hot presence. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review diane e Another TNT great. Mary McDonnell is one of the best in anything she does. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member I miss Kyra Sedgewick however I think that they restyled the series and I can't wait to watch this season Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Why is it that everyone on the show has acting talent except Mary McDonnell? Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Next Post a review
