Primetime Show Reviews
review by Suzanne
"War Zone" airing Monday, August 30 at 9 pm et/pt
Normally, I only review new shows, but TNT keeps sending me free
disks of upcoming episodes, so I feel I must review them. "The Closer" has
been on for a while now. It's in its sixth season and is very successful (or at
least as successful as any cable TV show can be!).
The show has very good writing and a great cast, but whether you
like the show or not probably hinges on whether you like Kyra Sedgewick in her
role as Brenda. She is great, but I guess some people have trouble with
such a strong woman (not me of course!).
I confess that I don't watch the show regularly. It's just that
I watch too much TV. I have some of the DVD sets and have watched many episodes.
I hope to watch them all eventually. It's a very good show.
This latest episode on August 30th, "War Zone" is great. It
guest-stars one of my favorite actors, Gary Cole, as an army major who gets
involved when three army guys are shot. Cole is very handsome, but this
army haircut is very unflattering. But otherwise, it's a very entertaining
episode. The ending is really shocking. I have to wonder if there will be any
fall-out for the Brenda character after what she does in this episode. Stay
