Critic Reviews for Major Crimes Season 5

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (0)

All in all, it was a solid enough premiere, with a decent amount of set-up for the season to come, without getting too far into the sort of long-term storytelling that defined the latter half of last season.

Jun 15, 2016 | Full Review…

I'm excited for a potential Buzz-centered story later on. It was also great to see him stand up to Provenza and Tao about their efforts to protect him from the truth.
