What do you think? Do you like watching the Major Crimes TV series on TNT? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a fifth season?
Get rid of Rusty and his story line or cancel. Send him away to college – anything. Just boot him out.
Get rid of Rusty…his character is awful…for a character that was a street kid hustler….he sure is dumb about life. Write him off. Utterly unwatchable…. I mute the tv every scene he is in.
I love this show but Rusty needs to go. He adds nothing to the show and he always has this sad, dumb look on his face. Please get rid of him.

Major Crimes is one of my favorite shows, but oh, the God awful Rusty character makes me question my loyalty. I wonder is the head writer for Major Crimes possibly bi-polar? Every week, the show sets up a weirdly interesting murder case and the squad kicks into gear trying to make the clues fit, then whammo…. here’s Rusty. Dead stop for the major crime investigation, while Rusty and his personal issues take over. I bet if you listen close, you can hear viewers all over the country pressing the mute button, waiting for Rusty to exit stage left. The truly… Read more »
