DVD Review: THE CLOSER: Season Four

Warner Home Entertainment
Release date: May 26th, 2009
MSRP: $39.98

Stars: Kyra Sedgwick, J.K. Simmons, Corey Reynolds, Robert Gossett, G.W. Bailey

Kyra Sedgwick returns as Brenda Johnson, head of the special homicide task force called Priority Homicide for the fourth season of this critically acclaimed series. Thank goodness, because three seasons would not be nearly enough for a show this good!

Season four goes deeper into Brenda’s personal life. She and FBI agent Fritz move into an apartment, which results in more than a few problems, and deal with the hassles of planning a Wedding! While their relationship continues to grow, Brenda still seems to struggle with the fear of the loss of her independence.
The Closer continues to be one of the better dramas on television and Sedgwick has really come into her own with this role. The numerous Emmy nominations are warranted.

But credit should also go to the supporting cast as well as the writers. The storylines manage to avoid the cliches that often plague cop shows after a few seasons. The dialogue and stories maintain a very high level of quality.

Fans of The Closer will love season four and those that are not familiar with the show will quickly become fans.

Order season four of THE CLOSER from Amazon.
