    Excellent review and I completely agree that this show is much better than its predecessor.
    Brenda’s entire demeanor dominated The Closer to the detriment of the other characters.
    Now under Sharon Raydor’s leadership we are seeing much more well rounded characters and a squad that works seemingly effortlessly together!

    Just two things that I would like to point out.
    The serial killer that Rusty encounters in The Closer is named Phillip Stroh.

    Also Chief Taylor took Chief Popes position when Pope was made Chief of Police, the job that Brenda wanted in TC.
    Sharon has all the duties as head of the Major Crimes Squad that Brenda had.

    Season 3 is shaping up to be better than S2.
    This is an amazingly talented cast, writers and crew. I hope for many more seasons.

    Thank you so much for that great input. Thanks also for the killer correction. I was watching another show at the same time and mixed up the character names.
    As for who took what jobs. It just seems like they split her job between the two. The actual politics of it I missed by not seeing season 1. (wasn’t sent by studio for review).
    You nailed it about the cast shining now. I too am excited for more to come.
    Thanks again for this contribution.
