Question: I just read the news that Sandra Oh has decided to leave Grey's Anatomy at the end of the season. I'm sure a lot of fans will be upset or disappointed, but I actually respect her choice to leave and am grateful she has given so much notice to the writers so that they will be able to find a way to write her out effectively, which Grey's has not always had in the past. However, the broader question here is how much longer the show should run. I can't really imagine right now what it will be like without Christina, but there was also ...

Major Crimes Creator James Duff Calls Summer Finale Best Episode Yet

Mary McDonnell, Michael Paul Chan, G.W. Bailey

Our summer season comes to an end with what many of us believe is the best episode of Major Crimes so far. I won't go into a long explanation here about the difference between spree killers and serial killers except to say that, usually, spree killers are much more impulsive and lack an exit strategy, while serial killers mainly want to get away with it. Consider the differences between Andrew Cunanan, who buckled under stress and then murdered his way across the United States, and the Zodiac Killer, who has yet to be found.

Major Crimes Creator James Duff Previews "Backfire"

Americans like their privacy.

Yes, here we go again with another episode of Major Crimes that was written and produced before a big news story took over the front pages and, once again, I remind our viewers that the show is not about politics. I don't know whether having informers and wires and cameras everywhere is a good or a bad idea, though I will express some pity for those tasked with analyzing American e-mails: after reading the first one hundred explanations of why spouses cheat on each other, I am pretty sure you have read them all. Even sex in the Twitterverse - lit up by pictures of politicians in various states of undress — begins to seem banal after so much...overexposure. Personally, I think a nonporous wall between our public and personal lives is a good idea, and that protections afforded our privacy by the Constitution are central to American liberty. But we live in a complicated age... read more

Major Crimes Creator James Duff Previews "There's No Place Like Home"

Doris Roberts and G.W. Bailey

My first order of business in previewing the next episode of Major Crimes is to thank Tim Conway, Paul Dooley, Ron Glass, Doris Roberts and Marion Ross for lifting this entry of our series onto the list of our most memorable. Our entire cast of regulars was thrilled to host these legends from, respectively, McHale's Navy and The Carol Burnett Show, Breaking Away and Grace Under Fire, Barney Miller and Firefly, Remington Steele and Everybody Loves Raymond, and Happy Days and Brooklyn Bridge. Also appearing, the dynamic Paul McCrane (of E.R. fame), as an ICE agent with a curious (one might even say horrifying) hobby.  

Now to write just a few words about our story, which revolves around an all-too-familiar aspect of an individual's identity. To state the obvious (I am a television writer, after all!), people change... read more

Major Crimes Creator James Duff Previews "The Deep End"

Kearran Giovanni, G.W. Bailey

When we began breaking stories around the theme of identity this season, no one ever thought we would be plumbing such dark and disturbing places inside the collective unconscious. Yet our next episode of MAJOR CRIMES dives further into the bottomless waters of the human psyche than we have ever gone before, sinking quickly past the (relatively) more common sins of murder, racial prejudice ...

Keck's Exclusives: The End of Rusty on Major Crimes?

Graham Patrick Martin

Some very vocal Major Crimes fans have taken to social media to express their dislike for Rusty (Graham Patrick Martin), the troubled foster son of Capt. Sharon Raydor (Mary McDonnell). As on-screen threats against the teen murder witness intensify, could Rusty's days come to an end on the TNT drama's August 19 summer finale?

Major Crimes Creator James Duff Previews "Rules of Engagement"

Mary McDonnell

In the seventh episode of our summer long examination of identity, we actively consider that oldest of old saws, "Don't judge a book by it's cover." We are usually taught this elemental lesson in judgment when we're very young, and (for many) it begins the effort to hone the native suspicion of human nature. There are too many examples of how people have been led astray by appearances to repeat them here, but one should not have to go back very far in American history to locate tragic mistakes that occur when people form false impressions based entirely on semblance. But Major Crimes is only an hour drama on television, and not a civics lesson; many of the questions we ask have no answers... read more

The Monday Playlist: A Birth Switcheroo, Syfy Cliffhangers, a Major Complication

D.W. Moffett, Lea Thompson

It's not a wonderful alt-life on ABC Family's Switched at Birth (Monday, 8/7c), as this endearing family drama imagines a "what if" scenario that hinges on Regina having gone public about the switch after she discovered it when the girls were but 3 years old. (The fact that she kept it a secret until their adolescence was the crux of an argument last week between her and John Kennish that ended with him collapsing from what appeared to be a heart attack.)

Ask Matt: Under the Dome and Summer TV, Burn Notice, True Blood, Emmy Noms and More

Mike Vogel

Question: I, like many others, read the novel Under the Dome and was sorely disappointed with the ending. I read an article about changes that are coming to the TV version. I was glad about that and am now going to give it a try. But I also read that it may become a series instead of a 13-episode miniseries. Is that true? I'd much rather this be a miniseries as opposed to a series lasting multiple seasons. The story doesn't really lend itself well to playing out over several years. Do you know if it will continue past 13 episodes? — Beth
