Modern script theory seems to be that we need to have seconary parallel plot lines involving the main character's personal lives, in order to make them seem more like "real people" to us.  You see this on all sorts of programs.  For the Closer, we saw Brenda's interaction with Fritz and her parents.  For Major Crimes, this is what they came up with for Raydor.  Unless and until they come up with some other personal life scenarios for Raydor, my guess is we're stuck with this story line.

Yes, that does seem to be a trend. But if I have to put up with it, I think I'd rather we follow bits of Provenza's and Flynn's personal lives which would, I think, create sitcom-like story arcs.

Hopefully they'll dump the kid. If they keep dragging in the Kid and the letter writer I'll be gone.


Remember when your kids were the TV set's remote control?

IMO, I believe some viewers are over sensitive regarding the troubled teens involvement in the show. This is a subplot that shows the positive side of policing and youth rehabilitation. In fact, I have a friend who as a long ago teen was walking on the wrong side of the law. Typical story, broken home, family violence, acting out teen. One day that teenager was arrested by a caring policeman. When the teen was put in foster care the arresting officer and his wife take her in and gave her a true family for many years. That saved my friend. My point is the sub-plot on Major Crimes is very realistic.

Just bumping this up to remind everyone that TNT is running some new episodes of "Major Crimes" starting tonight.

This is why I try not to delete a record series when a show goes on a hiatus.
