Critic Reviews for Major Crimes Season 2

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

The crime stories are poorly written, the production values are limited, and the Rusty business is forced.

Sep 23, 2013 | Full Review…

This may not be Shakespeare, but for a procedural crime show Major Crimes has a lot going for it: humane storylines, compassionate characters, diverse performers and women who get the job done.

Jul 22, 2013 | Full Review…

Try not to roll your eyes too much at the opening scene of TNT's disappointing The Closer spin-off Major Crimes, which trots out the old cliché of an amateur ride-along with the seasoned LAPD crime squad.

Sep 9, 2013 | Full Review…

It was the shading on the sides that advanced the continuing story of Sharon's involvement with Rusty that was worth the price of admission.

Sep 9, 2013 | Full Review…

The first season set a very high bar of success to meet, but I really think this well oiled machine can do it, even with the presence of the new DDA.

Jun 10, 2013 | Rating: 4.4/5 | Full Review…

The new series premieres... with an episode so glacial that one has to ask: why are viewers so avidly watching yet another series where the supporting cast spends most of its time watching the lead character work?

Audience Reviews for Major Crimes: Season 2

    Corona virus date night. I asked my wife why she likes the show. Her answer was "Because I can keep watching it. It doesn't make me flinch and have bad dreams." I myself would like to see an episode where Jessie Graff , swat team member, climbs a high rise building to get the bad guy. Hint hint......
