  Major Crimes: The Complete Sixth Season

 Review by Suzanne Lanoue 3/10/18

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this post. The opinions I share are my own.

I'm still sad that this show has ended. I really loved it, and the show that it spun off from, "The Closer."  The characters and the stories in both shows were just great. I'm also not happy about the way they killed off a major character in the last season, right after a certain couple finally got together.

The show had fine ratings, which improved, and also good demographics. TNT decided they wanted "edgier" shows, whatever that means. Seems like a stupid business decision to me. I don't know why they couldn't sell the show to another network, either.

Anyway, the DVD set is fantastic, as always, aside from the things I mentioned above. The only "extras" are some deleted scenes and the gag reel. Anyone who likes good drama should enjoy it.





This Three-Disc DVD Set Will
Include All 13 Season Six Episodes
Plus an All-New Gag Reel and
Never-Before-Seen Deleted Scenes

Major Crimes: The Complete Series Will Also
Be Available Day-And-Date, and Will Contain
All 104 Episodes From All Six Seasons

BURBANK, CA (November 30, 2017) - The final season of TNT's gripping crime drama Major Crimes is set for release on DVD from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment (WBHE). Available March 13, 2018, just two months after the series finale, Major Crimes: The Sixth and Final Season will feature all 13 episodes from the fan-favorite police drama's sixth season, plus a hilarious gag reel and never-before-seen deleted scenes. The show that began as a sequel to the award-winning police procedural The Closer and quickly became a hit series in its own right, is now drawing to an end after a successful, six-year run. Fans of Major Crimes won't want to miss learning the fate of their favorite squad of detectives as they continue to investigate L.A.'s most complex crimes in the show's final season. Major Crimes: The Sixth and Final Season is comprised of a three-disc DVD set and will retail for $24.98 SRP.

In Season Six, Major Crimes takes a serialized turn as the squad struggles to solve mysteries and murder surrounded by complex political conflicts, attempting to sidestep controversial issues as they track down three lethal murderers. As Cmdr. Sharon Raydor grows accustomed to her new boss, Assistant Chief Leo Mason, the detectives find themselves questioning their faith in the rapidly changing priorities of the justice system and their ability to reason through difficult changes. The emotionally gripping season will treat fans to an array of milestones, from celebrations of love to periods of loss. Finally, they must accept the necessity of risk in all its different guises, as they prepare to face the increasingly undeniable return of Phillip Stroh.

The sixth gripping season of Major Crimes finds the elite team of investigators hard at work, as they continue to solve the division's highest profile cases. The division is led by Cmdr. Sharon Raydor (Oscar nominee Mary McDonnell, Dances with Wolves, Battlestar Galactica). The unit is comprised of Lieutenant Provenza (G.W. Bailey, The Closer, M*A*S*H, Police Academy), Lieutenant Andy Flynn (Tony Denison, The Closer, Crime Story), Lieutenant Mike Tao (Michael Paul Chan, The Closer, Arrested Development), Detective Julio Sanchez (Raymond Cruz, The Closer, Training Day), tech expert and reserve police officer Buzz Watson (Phillip P. Keene, The Closer, The D.A.), Detective Amy Sykes (Kearran Giovanni, One Life to Live), medical examiner Dr. Morales (Jonathan Del Arco, The Closer, Nip/Tuck), Assistant Chief Leo Mason (Leonard Roberts, American Sniper, Drumline), Detective Camila Paige (Jessica Meraz, Chasing Life) and Det. Wes Nolan (Daniel Di Tomasso, Witches of East End, Timeless, Good Girls Revolt). Rusty Beck (Graham Patrick Martin, Two and a Half Men, The Bill Engvall Show) is Sharon Raydor's adopted son. In addition, Jon Tenney returns as Fritz Howard, Kathe Mazur appears as Deputy District Attorney Andrea Hobbs, Ransford Doherty continues in the role of C.I. Kendall, René Rosado plays Gustavo Wallace and Billy Burke returns in four episodes as serial killer, Phillip Stroh.

"Major Crimes has been a superb show since the beginning. The series cultivated a loyal fan following from the start and has kept viewers engaged," said Rosemary Markson, WBHE Senior Vice President, TV Marketing. She added, "We are proud to offer the final season of this remarkable series to consumers." One of basic cable's top programs, to-date Major Crimes has delivered over 5.7 million total viewers per episode. (Source: Nielsen National TV View, 05/30/2016 - 05/28/2017, Live + 7 Day Ratings, 3+ Telecasts. Excludes Sports, Kids, News, and Spanish Language Nets. Excludes Repeats, Movies, Sports, Specials.) Currently, Major Crimes is not available to stream via any SVOD service.

Fans can now own all six seasons of Major Crimes in one complete set. Major Crimes: The Complete Series will also be available on March 13th on DVD. The box set will retail for $112.99 SRP. This set represents a substantial savings over purchasing all six seasons individually.
