Major Crimes Creator Previews "Down the Drain"

Major Crimes creator James Duff will be doing a Facebook chat from 9/8c to 10/9c Monday during the airing of the episode? Join in the conversation here.

Last summer, the stories on Major Crimes revolved around the theme of expectation. Our human ability to imagine the future — to project what lies around the next bend in the road — is both a great asset and a terrible flaw.  When we have properly predicted events, and reap the benefits of our planning and hard work, rejoicing follows. But when we arrive at the end of our labors without gaining what we anticipated, tragedy can ensue.

And that is where the third season of Major Crimes resumes this Monday, for when expectations fall short, most of us fall back on the primitive engine of hope. Even the very worst darkness cannot prevent our hands from reflexively reaching out for a light.  Whatever passions or dreams act as a lamp when your eyes cannot see on their own: that is hope.  Speaking for myself, when I slump, my family picks me up, providing the luminous love I need to carry on.

Mega Buzz: Parenthood's End, More Frozen on Once and Loyalty on Walking Dead

Parenthood 
is almost over! What can you tease about the show's final episodes? — Raquel

Have the Kleenex at the ready for the 100th episode! "It's going to be a particularly emotional episode... [that] deals with Zeek's health," executive producer Jason Katims says. "It's an unusual episode in that it's a more compressed time frame than most of our episodes. It probably happens over 24 hours. It really is the beginning of the final movement of the series. ...  It's hopefully what will be a juggernaut toward the ending of the show."

Major Crimes Creator James Duff Previews "Zoo Story"

The expectation of safety has — alas - exploded in our modern world. Worse, the very idea of safety has become so politicized that it's nearly impossible to discuss (from any perspective) without simultaneously inviting partisan criticism. Walking through this political minefield just to tell a story is nearly not worth it

Nearly.

Those who watch Major Crimes regularly know that we try to vary the tone from episode to episode. Some stories are dark and moody; some are light and, occasionally, funny; some are designed to be action-packed thrillers; some are built as studies of human nature. And, usually, we end our seasonal run with a touch of horror. Last year's spree killing "Poster Boy," and the previous season's cool-headed sniper, led us into the more depraved reaches our genre.

Major Crimes Creator James Duff Previews "Sweet Revenge"

bsp;Ask police detectives about homicide's  "blue chips," and right up there with divorce, greed and psychopathy, they will mention "getting even" as one of their highest performers. In fact, if you factor in gang violence, mob hits and war zones, retaliation isn't only a celebrated motive for murder, but also the prime mover behind the deaths of millions of men, women and children around the globe.

Add to this cheery observation that civilization doesn't seem to be getting any easier to maintain, and that the expectation of privacy has pretty much ceased to exist, and you have the toxic recipe for tonight's victim, a purveyor of a particular form of on-line harassment known colloquially as "revenge porn." Imagine a website... read more
