Primetime Show Reviews
Review by Suzanne 8/9/05
The lead character in "Closer" is Brenda, played by Kyra
Sedgewick. She works for the LAPD as someone who gets confessions
about of the bad guys. She is a very strong woman, perhaps the
strongest one on TV. Sydney Bristow has nothing on her.
Brenda doesn't show very much vulnerability, aside from the two kittens
at home. The other main characters are male cops who seem to
worship Brenda. They show her good support when she needs it.
Agent Fritz Howard, an FBI agent, has a thing for her. You might
recognize Jon Tenney, who plays Howard, from many TV shows and movies.
Tenney and Sedgewick have something in common: they both
married other actors. Sedgewick's husband is actor Kevin Bacon.
Tenney was married to Teri Hatcher. Sorry, that's all the gossip I
know :) Anyway, you might recognize some of the other actors from
other TV dramas. They all do a great job. The writing is
also top-notch. Since the summer has mostly been filled with
reality shows, The Closer is already a hit.
I hope that it continues to be a hit when the regular
network dramas return in the fall. Being on TNT gives the show
some advantage because they don't have to worry about censored.
They can be as gritty and realistic as they want.
