Product Description

Tough & smart. Edgy & humorous. Rizzoli & Isles. Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander star as combative, working-class Boston detective Jane Rizzoli and cool, cerebral medical examiner Dr. Maura Isles in an exciting police procedural with a compelling point of view, based on the bestselling novels by Tess Gerritsen. The two women have each other's backs as they investigate their city’s grittiest and most puzzling homicides, from the Back Bay to back alleys. The high-caliber supporting cast includes Lorraine Bracco (The Sopranos) as Jane’s overprotective mom. Some best friends shop together, some meet for Mojitos, some join book clubs. Rizzoli and Isles bust crime.

Amazon.com

Talk about grrrl power! Rizzoli & Isles features the best two-woman crime-solving duo since Cagney & Lacey--supported by terrific writing and outside-the-box cases. Angie Harmon has never been better, as the tough Boston detective Jane Rizzoli. Her partner in crime (solving) is the equally impressive Sasha Alexander as Dr. Maura Isles, the by-the-books medical examiner who always has Rizzoli's back, but is often appalled at the cop's hard-charging tough-Boston-girl approach. Rizzoli & Isles is based on the series of popular mysteries by Tess Gerritsen, and adapted faithfully and engagingly for TV viewers. One thing that sets Rizzoli & Isles apart from the average police procedural is its crisp direction and subtle writing; even the most die-hard cop-show viewer will be engaged and surprised by the plots' twists and turns. And then there's the acting. Harmon has harnessed her dramatic chops and uses them perfectly as Rizzoli, and Alexander is both ideal sidekick and sometime foil as she tries to steer Rizzoli to follow the rules. The key in any double-starring series is chemistry, and Harmon and Alexander have it in spades--their sparring and intellectual one-upmanship are completely believable. The cases in season one are varied, though focus mostly on serial killers, with one particularly gripping case flashing back to the notorious Boston Strangler case. The first season of Rizzoli & Isles features two great behind-the-scenes features, one with series creator Janet Tamaro on how she adapted the Gerritsen books, and another with the cast and crew about the making of the series. There's also a hilarious gag reel that shows just how much fun everyone is really having on the set. A must for crime-show buffs and fans of great actresses heading their own series. --A.T. Hurley

5.0 out of 5 stars Tough, Boston Tough... May 17, 2011
Format:DVD
The good news about "Rizzoli & Isles: The Complete First Season" is that it gets Angie Harmon (Law and Order) and Sasha Alexander (NCIS) back on network TV. The better news, depending on your tastes in police procedurals, is that it plunks the two of them down as mis-matched buddies in the middle of a rather dark, gritty crime drama.

Angie Harmon is Jane Rizzoli, a tough, driven Boston detective who survived an earlier and nearly fatal encounter with a serial killer named Charles Hoyt. She was saved by her old partner, the recurring character detective Vince Korsack (an excellent Bruce McGill). The edgy Jane has some unresolved trauma issues and a mother (Lorraine Bracco) waiting for Jane to settle down with a nice guy and start making grandchildren. Jane would rather be just one of the guys. Sasha Alexander is Dr. Maura Isles, Chief Medial Examiner, organized, strait-laced and often hilariously socially awkward. The two are an unlikely buddy team, but their teamwork and relationship grow steadily over the course of a short season.

This first season is heavy on serial killers, featuring Charles Hoyt and some copy cat killers. One episode has an intriguing throw back to the old Boston Strangler case. The season conclusion offers a frightening cliff-hanger, made bearable only by the recent announcement that "Rizzoli & Isles" are returning for a second season in the summer of 20ll.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Series! January 30, 2012
By Kerri
Format:DVD
I love love love this series. This series brings in the human element that is missing from your long standing hits like Law & Order: SVU and all the CSIs. Not only is all the crime drama there, the scientific aspect, but we also have the human element...the characters' personal lives. I believe this is what makes this a hit show. Jane's match making Ma, Jane's little bro trying to be like his big sis, Maura and Jane's friendship, etc. You get to see all the past experiences in their lives and how they've been affected: Frost's absent Navy Admiral Dad, Korsack's multiple divorces, Jane's unwanted obsession by a serial killer, Maura's abandonment issues from her adoptive parents.

The chemistry between Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander is fluid and natural and comes through so easily onscreen. It's rare to have that type of natural connection between the actors/actresses on a show and TNT has definitely found it in these two ladies.

This is one of the few scripted shows I watch!

4.0 out of 5 stars Readers Beware September 12, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
First, this is an excellent series and I love the chemistry between the actresses. However, readers be warned that this is not exactly the Rizzoli & Isles in the books and liberties are taken. That said, it's an interesting show and Angie Harmon is a joy to look at and I do like how they played up the quirky side of Maura Isles. Honestly, it's worth reading the books as well as watching the show. Having read the books I did not feel that the show wasn't worth my time.Looking forward to the next season on dvd.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Series March 3, 2011
Format:DVD
I watched this series for the first time on a flight from Los Angeles to New York. It is fast-paced, witty and keeps you guessing. I can't wait for the 1st season DVD to be issued.

5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVE this show June 5, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander make this show worth watching. The dynamics that they have while acting as Detective Jane Rizzoli, Harmon, and Dr. Maura Isles, Alexander, is great. I first saw this show on TNT one stressful evening and was immediately hooked into the plot and story line. I love this show and can't wait until it comes out.

5.0 out of 5 stars The true mix of Bones and Castle January 2, 2012
By Kate
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Right up there with Bones and Castle. This series combines the girl power the world loved so much in the Spice Girls with the genius of Bones and the light, yet respectful, humour of Castle. These characters are down to earth and about as real as fictional characters can be. The problem with this season is simple, and I believe obvious to any one who has seen it, there aren't enough episodes.

By PI Grad

Rizzoli & Isles is the best crime drama series out today. The cast interaction makes each episode worth watching. Can't wait to own Season two. This collection is worth owning in order to watch a series that is as fantastic to watch time and time again.
