Bitter Harvest tells an interesting, and topical, story about the Ukrainian country and its people battling against the Stalin-led Soviet Union. The performances are mostly well done headlined by Max Irons.
“Major Crimes” is still a good series which excels more due to the characters than the episode plotlines. The core, and veteran cast from “The Closer”, are a lot of fun to watch while anything involving Rusty didn’t really interest me once his investigation into Jane Doe had finished (which was only a few episodes in).
“Major Crimes”: The Complete Second Season is successful more on the ensemble cast, with Mary McDonnell leading the way, more so than the plots and the season-long subplot. The DVD released by Warner Brothers has good audio and video transfers but is a bit limited with the bonus material.
“Major Crimes” The Complete First Season starts off strong and finishes just as strong by the end. Mary McDonnell was the perfect choice to take over and along with the others characters we got to know and love from “The Closer”, it makes for a smooth transition. The DVD doesn’t have a whole lot to offer features-wise but the audio and picture transfers are both solid.
