The Closer: Season 2 Reviews

March 5, 2019
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.

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.

[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.

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

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.

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