  1. It’s turning into a soapie with the Rusty Beck plotline and the romance between Flynn and Raydor. Without Provenza’s non-PC attitude, his almost white Giggle hat from M*A*S*H and his “I don’t…” sayings, I’d give the show a miss.

  2. Jumping for joy! Been waiting, and checking all appropriate website for this news for months.
    Thanks for breaking this to me, David.
    It’s lost viewers in the states, yes, but so has Rizzoli and Isles, even more so.
    It’s a slow burner for fans of The Closer, and maybe doesn’t have the same humour, but still an excellent procedural with a very talented array of cast and writers.
