  1. Always watch within the week as I DVR most things.
    My wife and I really enjoy this ship and it holds up to the best of prime times offerings!!!!!!!!! Good job!!!!!!

  2. Love the show, am faithful viewer. Amazing cast, week after week you amaze us. Giving us laughs and chills. Keep it up

    • I have been watching from Day 1 when Brenda was on the show. I love the show and record it and re-watch before the next showing. I just wish there were more episodes, 4 is not enough it gets going really well; then the season is over and you have too wait (it seems like such a long time) until the next season begins. We (I) want a lot more.

  3. Major Crimes is the best show on cable television!!! Bar none. I do record it so I can rewatch it as I sometimes miss a few subtitles the first time. Plus the show goes on hiatus for too long in its off season!!
