Approximate run time is 2 hours and 30 minutes with one 15 minute intermission. This show is best enjoyed by ages 12 and up.
Next week it’s (unfortunately!!!) the season 3 finale and we’ve got TWO HOURS with it. Big jackpot for us!!! Here is a preview and press release from both episodes.
3×18 – Special Master Part One
Phillip Stroh returns and is demanding a new deal from DDA Rios (guest star Nadine Velazquez) in exchange for his cooperation regarding “future murders.” In a race against the clock to prevent the deaths of three women, Major Crimes works to save the victims while decoding the source of Stroh’s information.
3×19 – Special Master Part Two
The Major Crimes division is in overdrive working to stop a serial killer who has been targeting female sex workers. To interpret the facts, Captain Sharon Raydor reaches outside her division to a consultant, Clarissa Fields, to help reverse engineer a decade of horrible murders as Stroh moves closer and closer to achieving his ultimate deal.
As I predicted it was a very intense episode, but not only for the Julio situation. The episode is totally worth watching. The episode is available online at tntdrama.com!
Major Crimes > Season 3 > Episode Screencaptures > 3×17 – Internal Affairs
This is going to be hard watching. And I’m scared for what Sharon has to do and I’m sure she’s not willing to that easily! Take a look!
I’ve seen the preview (hopefully coming online pretty soon!) after last night episode. This is getting more and more intense! It’s going to be a hard episode this one.
Sanchez is put under the microscope when his mother’s (guest star Ana Mercedes) caregiver is found murdered. Rusty is forced to take on Jack when he shows up at Sharon’s condo acting recklessly.
The gallery was updated with last night episode HD screencaptures. It was an intense, very intense episode. And I love when series go in deep with characters feelings and emotions. If you haven’t seen it yet, the episode is now available on their site. Go and check, meantime enjoy the caps!
Major Crimes > Season 3 > Episode Screencaptures > 3×16 – Leap Of Faith
To tease a bit take a look at tonight’s episode of Major Crimes. I shouldn’t have watched this. I so want to be night!!!!
Hello and welcome to my little corner of paradise dedicated to actress Mary McDonnell! Now first of all, why this name? Well the idea came to me watching a re-run of The Closer and since Mary’s character on the series has had a huge impact on me, I thought something linked to it was appropriate. Now the thing came from the episode where they apply the “Johnson Rule” which implied that Brenda was after all guilty of all they were charged for, so I thought it was appropriate because Mary is absolutely guilty of being such awesome and gorgeous and sweet, to make me go into making a fansite on her.
One thing you must know is that I have been a fan of Mary since late 1999 when I saw for the first time Independence Day (bare with me I was just 9 when it came out!), because in her small part in the movie, she had that je ne sais quoi that captivated me. From there it only went on with Dances with Wolves, Mrs. Harris, Battlestar Galactica leading at the cherry on cake to The Closer. I might possibly be the only one in the world who loved Captain Raydor since the first moment. You might imagine my happiness when Major Crimes stopped being just an idea and got concrete into a project.
So here I am, paying my tribute to an extraordinary talented and beautiful woman. The site is far from being complete but I’m determined to make it great for all of you to enjoy. You can follow us on our sociables twitter, facebook and tumblr. See ya around!!!
