The Good DaughterReviewed in the United Kingdom on 07 March 2021

very good
Verified purchase
Watched The Closer a few years ago but had missed series 1 so this is a treat to watch. Crimes are interesting and the casting and script is really good. The Major Crimes series was a spin off of this - have watched the whole box set of that three times so going back to what inspired it is very worthwhile. Definitely recommend it

Loved this series. I found the storylines interesting and well written. It also was very funny at times. I also loved how the characters blend with each other, and that each character had their own quirks and idiosyncrasies.

I didn't really get into this drama until the middle of the sixth series after which I was totally hooked. However it is quite difficult to get hold of so I thought I would use Amazon Instant Video to watch earlier episodes. It is going well so far.
