Starts tonight at 9 on universal. Only watched first few EPS of the closer. I know you don't need to have watched the closer to watch this but wondering how good major crimes is and if its worth watching.

As with most shows it IS worth you giving it at least a single ep

I watched it US pace and if it does return I'll be watching that season to. But as to whether the series is one of those muilti-watchable ones, well, that's another question.

give it two eps. Lot of cast changes after the first one.

Watched the first ep, and although its strange not seeing Kyra in the lead role, I think Mary McDonnell is a great replacement lead.

Like "alternate", I'll give it a couple more episodes. The first one was all over the place, plot-wise, and the twists were pretty predictable. I liked "the Closer" because the stories were tightly written and the denouements strong. I watched every episode and I can only think a of a few which were not excellent. The attempts to make Raydar more human were clumsy and the boy was seriously annoying. By the end of the episode, I was wishing that the serial killer bloke from "the Closer" had managed to dispatch him and thereby done us all a favour. So far it looks like a weak spinoff - which would be such a shame.

Episode two was stronger than the first but the boy is still very, very annoying and there's no way he would/could/should be allowed to listen into a crime investigation in progress. Styles is just as annoying as the boy. The glamorous, pouting, glossy-lipsticked look doesn't fit with the rest of the cast. One of the things I liked about the Closer was that the squad had a realistic rough, world-weary look about them.

Glad this has got another season in the US, and in general am happy with the cast. Only dislike is the already mentioned Styles.

I watched it US pace and it gets better and better as it goes on, Sykes and Rusty get less annoying as it goes on too!

Not a great episode but OK - except for Nadine Velazquez as Emma Rios - another glamorous pouting "actress" like the one who plays Sykes. They should have gone for gone for someone who can actually act - she was having trouble trying not to look at the camera and lights. Next to the rest of the cast, she looked well out of her depth. Bad casting.

Me neither. I nearly missed it. Has it been cancelled or something because my TV guide says Major Crimes : Final Cut?

"Has it been cancelled or something?" It's too early to tell because Series 2 still has another ten or eleven episodes to go in USA. It didn't start on cable until 10th JUne.

Series 2 was to have been 15 episodes but TNT increased it to 19. The viewing figures seem OK but I think they need to tighten the plots and ditch the pouting, glamorous "actresses" for ones that look more real-life and can actually act.

Major Crimes is repeated at 10.00 p.m. on Thursday.

I don't like that actress from My Name is Earl. She's too glamorous for this series.

I was disappointed that awful kid is still in the show. They need to get rid of him ASAP.

I started watching this last week on the recommendation of a friend.

It took me a while to recognise the Captain as the woman who played President Laura Roslin in Battlestar Galactica.

It's also weird seeing Captain Harris from the Police Academy films as a proper policeman

Nope, you didn't "miss" anything. For some reason I wrote Styles instead of Sykes.....

The show is currently on a mid-season break in the States so this week's episode will be the last one for a while

Just looked on IMDB, and they have the US airdate for ep 12 as Nov 25th, also there seems to be only another 2 episodes to go in this season according to them, but didn't it get an extension to 19 eps?.

Hope it gets a longer episode order for season 3 as I am really enjoying the show....
