Critic Reviews for The Closer Season 2

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

Ms. Sedgwick's Southern accent is unconvincing, but her character overcomes that distraction: she is a complicated single woman who uses her own neuroses to deconstruct suspects' behavior and motives.

Nov 7, 2018 | Full Review…

Although we're promised plots involving money, gangs, and sexual pathology, we'll really be sitting still on Monday nights for the variations Sedgwick rings on Brenda.

Jun 12, 2006 | Full Review…

[Kyra] Sedgwick is tremendous, but the series' cast, including J.K. Simmons, Corey Reynolds and Robert Gossett, grew to the challenge the first season. Now they play off of her like a well-rehearsed string section backs up the soloist.

Mar 4, 2019 | Full Review…

While the show is a bit psychobabbly in implying that that's what most are really looking for... the dramatic intensity of their exchanges with Johnson makes for compelling episodes.

Nov 7, 2018 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

Kyra Sedgwick's character is unlike any other on TV. She is the moral and emotional center of this multi-dimensional drama.

Aug 14, 2018 | Full Review…

With the absence of [the] tension-filled undertones and conflicts, this episode comes close to falling into standard crime procedural territory.
