“The Closer” and chocolate.

Any fans of “The Closer” out there? Here’s your chance to win a bit of memorabilia. Some chocolate, too.

“The Closer” is approaching its eighth and final season. Although I don’t have a television I have watched some episodes with my daughter and with my friend here in Alaska.

Love the character of Brenda Leigh Johnson and love the way Kyra Sedgwick plays her.

If you do, too, then you might enjoy this giveaway: The eighth-season press kit, which includes four of the final six episodes on DVD. It’s a small folio of photographs, quotes and an introduction from creator James Duff.

As for the chocolate: Fans know that Brenda loves sweets, so I’m enclosing some chocolate to enjoy as you watch the show. Given that she’s been known to eat nonpareils and Ding Dongs, I decided against the fancy stuff. Thus the winner will get a seven-ounce Hershey bar, which is a lot easier to mail than a Ding Dong.

To enter:

If you do any (or all!) of these things, please leave separate, additional comments to get credit for each entry.

The deadline is 9 p.m. PDT on Tuesday, June 27. If the winner does not respond to my e-mail by Wednesday evening, I’ll have the random number generator draw another winner.

  54. Love, love Brenda Lee! I’m so sad to see it end but can’t wait for it start up!

  55. Hi there! I’m glad to have “discovered” your blog and’m looking forward to reading your posts. Glad, too, to be entered in the drawing. I do very much enjoy The Closer! I don’t have cable (too much money to watch 25 minutes of programming and 95 minutes of ads in an hour — yeah, I know it doesn’t logically add up but neither does paying a bundle to be insulted with -so- many ads rather than shows) but can catch The Closer on local free over-the-air tv. It’s a well done show and I’m going to miss it!

  56. KDContorno

    Nothing lasts forever, except on DVD perhaps. The characters grew every season, the themes and stories more relevant, especially the job security. Love her tenacity and drive, and especially when she breaks down and shows her human side and all her foibles. Chocolate and dingdongs the least but certainly the most memorable. Certainly high on the list for inclusion in a time capsule!

  57. I am looking forward to watching the final season and seeing how it all turns out!! And of course, love the chocolate tie-in.

  58. what will I do without Brenda Leigh??????

  59. I tweeted, FB’s and emailed – now if the stars would just align

  60. Love that Brenda! THanks for the giveaway:) I’m a fan on FB

  61. I’m not a “Closer” fan, but I could learn to be–especially with the some chocolate to help me!

  62. Barbara Fransen

    Always loved the way she hid her ding dongs and how she slowly would unwrap it and the joy of eating chocolate!

  63. Tracy Stone

    This is a fun giveaway. Totally decadent – sitting and watching a show and eating chocolate!

  64. lisa michelle jones

    i added you on faceybooky….

  65. It’s not that hard to MAIL a Ding Dong. But it IS hard to eat it after it has been mailed–the chocolate and the cream get all squished up.

  66. Melissa

    I love “The Closer”–I’m a bit Kyra Sedgwick fan, and a fan of her husband, Kevin Bacon. I’d love to win this package! 🙂 I “liked” you on Facebook and signed up for the e-mail newsletter, and am leaving this comment.

    I can’t wait for the final 6 episodes of the season…can’t wait to see how they end up…and am glad the rest of the characters will live on in the new series “Major Crimes.”

  67. Love The Closer, though we’re only up to season 4. Brenda is one awesome lady. Hope they wrap up the series nicely…
    off to find you on FB…

  68. liked you on FB! looking forward to updates! 🙂
