“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 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.
