"Rizzoli & Isles" returns for its fourth season on TNT with its principal cast intact and a whole new set of excellent episodes set in the Boston Police Department. Angie Harmon is street-wise detective Jane Rizzoli; Sasha Alexander is her best friend, medical examiner Maura Isles. Bruce McGill and Lee Thompson Young are Jane's fellow Homicide Division squad mates Vince Korsak and Barry Frost. Lorraine Bracco is Jane's mother Angela.

When we last saw them at the end of Season Three, Jane and Maura were leading the rescue effort to get Jane's brother Tommy, his baby son TJ, and Detective Frost out of a collapsed parking garage. In the new season, the crew deals with the aftermath of that traumatic incident. Jane's injured soldier boyfriend will elect risky spinal surgery; Maura will struggle to build a relationship with her newly discovered mother and step-sister. The trial of Maura's mobster father Paddy Doyle will hang over the season, placing strains on Jane and Maura. Jane's brother Frankie finally gets his detective shield, putting him at odds with Jane at more crime scenes.

The episodes combine tense police procedural with moving and sometime hilarious family drama. Jane and Maura will have difficult cases to solve, including one in which Maura is framed for murder and another in which Jane has to work with an old boyfriend she no longer trusts. The christening of Tommy's TJ turns into a social disaster, with TJ's mother threatening to take the child out of state and away from Jane's family. The end result will be superb entertainment. The heart of the show continues to be the wonderful friendship between Jane and Maura. Recommended. And Rizzoli & Isles has already been renewed for Season Five.

Am a flight attendant, and had the great pleasure of having Angie Harmon on a red-eye flight...Fans of the show please know that as sweet and wonderful as her character 'Jane Rizzoli' is on the show she is just as warm and unbelievably friendly...Of course I love the show and the chemistry between she and Sasha...great...my husband and I never miss it...We look forward to many more years of their 'let's find out who done it and kick some keister ' attitude...Brava Ladies.

TOP 50 REVIEWERon August 14, 2013
I own every episode. This is a buy item, no rent, good enough to watch several times over. Finally a US cop show on the level of all the great Brit stuff. Hope it runs for a decade. Tess Garritsen is the novel author behind the beginning of "Rozzoli & Isles" as well as credited for writing the series. Jane Tamaro is producer and writer of the series. That's a combo as good as the two female leads. Women's ability in the acting and creative areas are making this one of the best shows on TV/DVD from America.

A super fantastic cop show taking place in the alleys, parking garages, streets, and fine places of beautiful Boston. But the crime is as ugly as the city is beautiful. And speaking of beauty, the 2 protagonists are hot. Angie Harmon plays Det. Jane Rozzoli the tough, sexy, sometimes sweet, sometimes funny murder investigator who takes on some bad boys and gets herself into dire straights. She has the scars to prove it, but the figure of a goddess. Her partner in crime, solving that is, comes in Medical Examiner Dr. Maura Isles, played by the equally gorgeous Sasha Alexander. She's loaded with nerdy trivia, which annoys Rozzoli, but gets the job done. She has nerves of iron and also injects many comic moments. It's a fine balancing act of suspense and comedy in a mystery crime show that works great.

Other cast members come into their own in different episodes. It is a series that has created a fine cast that quickly feels like family. Everyone has a history with a bit of a dark side as well as some fine personal moments. Lorraine Bracco is Ma Rozzoli, a generation older but yet a looker and doer. Her son Frankie Jr. (Jordan Bridges) is a Boston foot cop. Two other members of the murder squad are Det. Frost (Lee Thompson Young) who hates gore and Det. Korsak (Bruce McGill) older and wiser. They all appear each episode and play an important role.

Subtitles available for all Episodes:
We are Family
In Over Your Head
But I am a Good Girl
Killer in High Heels
Dance with the Devil
Somebody's Watching Me
All For One
Cold as Ice
Judge Jury and Executioner
Partners in Crime
Tears of a Clown

Don't forget there are 3 previous years of Rozzoli & Isles. All good.
It's already been renewed for a 5th season.

I have watched this show since season 1. Both characters along with the rest of the cast are excellent. Absolutely no exceptions. This show is so well put together I cannot stop getting enough of it. I recommend it HIGHLY to anyone who is out just exploring it. I have all four seasons and love them all.

I admit -- I rarely love shows with mainly female leads. This show is the exception -- Rizzoli & Isles is great...and the characters are awesome together. They are a perfect blend of intellect, strength, beauty, and friendship.

Rizzoli and Isles is a great combination of crime drama, comedy and the complexity of relationships - whether with family, friends or coworkers. Awesome show.

I really love Jane. She is such a strong woman and in charge. If she were more girly girl like Maura I think the guys would find it hard to respect her as a detective. Maura can be as she is because she is in charge of her area of expertise, she has no equals in the lab.

My rating is really based on the chemistry between the lead actors - Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander. If you like procedural shows - you will like the show anyway. But this show delves more into the lives of its main characters, Jane Rizzoli (Detective with the BPD) and Maura Isles (Chief Medical Examiner). The program is suspenseful, funny, sad, heartwarming, tense. It is based on novels by Tess Gerritsen. Lorraine Bracco plays the Rizzoli's mom and she does a great job lightening the show. Lee Thompson Young played Frost - Jane Rizzoli's detective partner. Sadly, Mr. Young took his own life this past summer and production was halted. Frost was a wonderful character and integral to the show. He will be very much missed. But - as I stated before, the success of the show rests squarely on the shoulders of its lead actors - Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander. They play off each other perfectly - Rizzoli, the tough tom-boyish cop vs. Dr. Isles - the brainy doctor with a head full of information that might make Google obsolete. They are best friends, caught up together in the action and the drama. Even some bad writing in Season Four fails to take these two wonderful actresses down. They slog right through - leaving you waiting in high anticipation for the final four shows of the season (set to be broadcast in February, 2014) and Season Five, which will begin airing in the summer of 2014. I can't remember when I've seen such great chemistry between lead actors on TV. Lucy and Ethel? Mary and Rhoda? Yes, they are that good in the chemistry department. Highly recommended.

I loved the first 3 seasons but I'm losing interest. Jane and her mom are great characters, the rest of the Rizzoli's are too much all the time. The constant presence of the excessively dysfunctional family makes the show hard for me to watch now.

It's very sad to lose Frost and his (show) family through the real death of Lee Thompson (may he rest in peace). When the time comes to replace his character I hope they find someone interesting whose only facet is not unpleasantness.
