Top 10 Cable Drama Returns Wednesday, Feb. 22, at 9 p.m. (ET/PT).

Television’s favorite squad of detectives charge back to TNT this winter when Major Crimes returns to solve eight more mysteries on the way to its explosive fifth season finale. Major Crimes features a stellar ensemble cast including two-time Oscar® nominee Mary McDonnell as Captain Sharon Raydor, G.W. Bailey as Lieutenant Provenza, Tony Denison as Lieutenant Andy Flynn, Michael Paul Chan as Lieutenant Michael Tao, Raymond Cruz as Detective Julio Sanchez, Phillip P. Keene as tech expert (and reserve officer) Buzz Watson, Kearran Giovanni as Detective Amy Sykes, Jonathan Del Arco as Dr. Morales and Graham Patrick Martin as Rusty Beck, Sharon Raydor’s adopted son. The winter premiere of Major Crimes is set for Wednesday, Feb. 22, at 9 p.m. (ET/PT), exclusively on TNT.

In addition to the main cast, Major Crimes features recurring appearances of Emmy winner Camryn Manheim as Deputy Chief Winnie Davis, Jon Tenney as Deputy Chief of the Special Operations Bureau Fritz Howard, Kathe Mazur as DDA Andrea Hobbs, Jeri Ryan as Linda Rothman, Ransford Doherty as Coroner’s Investigator Kendall, Rene Rosado as Gustavo Wallace, Leonard Roberts as Commander Leo Mason, Dawnn Lewis as Patrice Perry, Daniel DiTomasso as Det. Wes Nolan and Jason Gedrick as former detective Mark Hickman.

Major Crimes centers on a special squad within the LAPD that deals with high-profile or particularly sensitive crimes. This winter, the squad moves inexorably to fill the vacant post of Assistant Chief that Fritz Howard has been occupying on a temporary basis. Along the way, Sanchez tries once again to become a father; Flynn and Sharon move closer toward the path to matrimony; Provenza considers retirement; Rusty interns for DDA Hobbs as he looks toward attending law school when he graduates from UCLA; Buzz attempts to help out the family of the man who murdered his father; Sykes confronts an old foe in Mark Hickman; Lt. Mike Tao is instrumental in solving a case dealing with plastic explosives; and Dr. Morales joins the squad for the entire investigation of a very personal mystery.

Since its chart-topping debut in 2012, Major Crimes has consistently ranked as one of TNT’s most-watched drama series. For the first half of its fifth season, the show reached an average of 10 million viewers per episode across TNT’s multiple platforms and finished the third quarter of 2016 ranking as one of cable’s Top 10 dramas with adults 18-49. Stemming from TNT’s hit original The Closer, many of the cast members have been playing their roles since 2005 and will hit their 200th episode together during the finale.

Created by James Duff, Major Crimes is produced by The Shephard/Robin Company and Walking Entropy, Inc., in association with Warner Bros. Television. James Duff, Greer Shephard & Michael M. Robin, Rick Wallace, Adam Belanoff, Mike Berchem and Duppy Demetrius serve as executive producers.

In 1995, Mary and Jean Smart, starred in a brilliant comedy called High Society. Mary played the role of Dott Emerson. Below you’ll find links to the screencaptures of the series, sadly that’s the best quality I could get out of it, as the series was cancelled by the network and never made to DVD, youtube is all I’ve got. Enjoy them!

Dott Emerson is a divorced mother who owns a successful publishing house, for which her best friend, Ellie, writes best-selling romance novels. Val enters the picture as Dot and Ellie’s old girlfriend from college who is pregnant and leaving her husband, much to the dismay of Ellie, who wants nothing to do with her. Against Ellie’s wishes, Dot lets Val move in with her.

TNT’s Major Crimes has added Leonard Roberts in a recurring role, as a total of three people jockey to succeed the late Russell Taylor as Assistant Chief of Special Operations.

As previously reported, Emmy winner Camryn Manheim, playing the Deputy Chief of Operations in the LAPD, will vie with MCD boss Sharon Raydor for Taylor’s plum job.
TVLine has now learned that Roberts — whose credits include People v. O.J. (as reporter Dennis Schatzman), The Client List and Heroes — will recur as Leo Mason, the intelligent and charismatic commander of the Criminal Intelligence Division, a third candidate for the job.

Manheim debuts in Season 5’s midseason premiere, airing in early 2017, while Roberts makes his first appearance shortly thereafter.

Happy #MaryMonday dear fans,
here is over 2000 screencaptures and 8 clips from the movie Passion Fish, in which Mary played May-Alice Culhane.

May-Alice Culhane was a successful soap opera star, but a car accident has left her bound to a wheelchair. She returns to her now-empty family home in the bayous of Louisiana which she had eagerly left years before. She drinks heavily and vents her bitterness on the succession of nurses who are hired to take care of her and immediately quit because she is so unbearable. Chantelle is the latest of these nurses, and May-Alice is told that Chantelle is the last nurse she’ll get. Chantelle for reasons of her own, is also in a position where she badly needs the job to work out. The movie focuses on how these two women become friends and help each other heal emotionally.
