Top Customer Reviews
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.
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!
The mysteries are fairly obvious, but it's still fun to see the plots unfold, even if you have figured out what is going on fairly early. Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander have really great friendship chemistry and I think that might be what sells the show for me. I like watching them develop as characters and watching how they grow through their interactions with each other. The depth of the lead characters makes up for storylines that seem familiar if you have ever watched procedurals on t.v. before and supporting characters who can seem a little flat. A show celebrating two strong women with mutual respect professionally and personally and touching moments of support for each other is fairly unique and definitely satisfying!
