Hooked on ‘The Closer’

Kyra Sedgwik is the closerAlthough I enjoy watching TV a great deal, my current life doesn’t leave me with enough time to do so. There are always things to do over the weekends and evenings such that I rarely turn on the TV to see what’s playing.

But Monday night is a special case. Every Monday night this summer I wait patiently for 9:00 PM so I can kick back and watch The Closer, a police investigation show that runs on TNT. What makes the show a viewing pleasure is not the plot or storyline per se. It is the amazing performance by Kyra Sedgwik. Playing the character of Deputy Chief Brenda Johnson, Sedgwik is "the closer," — the one who interviews suspects and closes cases by getting them to confess. She is entertaining, witty, sexy and just plain fun to watch.

Before watching the show, I’d never paid much attention to Sedgwik. I always thought of her as that woman who looks like Julia Roberts. I really had no idea she was that talented (nor that she is married to Kevin Bacon for that matter). I highly recommend this show to anyone looking for top-notch TV entertainment. Six more days before the next episode.

    I’ve only seen part of season 1, but I do really like it! It’s different than other cop drama’s around

    I’ve added Season 1 it to my zip.ca list! (A Canadian Netflix-like operation.)

    I hate to give you more TV watching chores Natasha, but I think you should check out “Damages” on FX on Tuesday at 10pm EST. It stars Glenn Close as yet another frighteningly evil character. Its a 13 week mini-series. I’m not sure what the connection is, but fans of The Closer seem to universally go ga-ga over this one as well.

    My vote for “must see tv” would be “Madmen” on the AMC chaneel.
