    saw the “teaser” for the new season… June 8 (?) I think….yippee.

    I like Billy Burke (bad guy lawyer) in other things (his cancelled show Revolution my husband really enjoyed and misses)…and he was good in Fracture…. figured they’d bring him back to do his “ultimate bad guy” thing ! – —
    hope to see all the “regulars” we know and love…. kind of got used to Tom Berenger as Sharon’s “ex”- looked like in the script he’s “trying to change”. He sure has changed over the years (aged) but–so have I !!!

    Looks like Kyra Sedgewick directing or producing new show for TNT (?) about what happens after you die…?? Hope she & husband Kevin Bacon got straightened out from that mess where Bernie Madoff soaked them for lots of money! wish she’d pop in Major Crimes for “guest appearance” (drawl and all…. thenk youuuu verrrry much! :)
