Angie Harmon (Law & Order) and Sasha Alexander (NCIS) return for season two of the hit series as Boston's top crime-solving duo, Detective Jane Rizzoli and Dr. Maura Isles. Complete opposites, the two women share an offbeat chemistry and strong working relationship. As the second season opens, Jane and Frankie (Jordan Bridges) are recovering from bullets they took during a siege at the police station. As Jane struggles to overcome scars that are more emotional than physical, an old flame (Chris Vance – Dexter) returns. On the home front, Jane's mother, Angela (Lorraine Bracco – The Sopranos), is despondent over a major upheaval in her own life, complicated by the arrival of Jane's older brother, Tommy (Colin Egglesfield – Melrose Place). And for Maura, home life gets complicated when her adoptive mother, Constance Isles (Jacqueline Bisset – Nip/Tuck), comes to visit. Plus, Jane and Maura take on a number of intriguing cases this season - and you can watch them all right here!]]>

In this second season, Boston's finest get a broader range of cases, including the murder of a returning war veteran, a killer in uniform who strikes during Boston's Fleet Week, the abduction of an undercover cop's child, and the strange death of a baseball coach, among others.
Jane Rizzoli's family gets a bigger role in the second season, as her patrolman brother Frankie wants a piece of the action, her newly divorced mother Angela (Lorraine Bracco) moves in with Jane and takes a job at the police cafeteria, and Jane's other brother just wants to stay out of jail. Also, we meet Maura's adoptive mother and her rather dangerous biological father.
The heart of the show continues to be the often hilarious interaction between Jane and Maura. Imagine the possibiities of Maura taking tomboyish Jane to a spa or attempting to dress her for a formal date, or of Jane trying to ward off Maura's unwanted suitor by pretending to be her lesbian girlfriend, and you get the idea.
"Rizzoli & Isles: The Complete Second Season" is highly recommended to its fans. It appears "Rizzoli & Isles" will return for a third season in the summer of 2012.
"TNT Renews Mega-Hit Rizzoli & Isles for Third Season
TNT has booked its blockbuster series Rizzoli & Isles for a third season. The record-breaking drama - from Warner Horizon Television and starring Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander - is in the midst of a terrific second season that has it running neck-and-neck with The Closer as this year's top basic cable series. TNT has ordered 15 episodes of Rizzoli & Isles for its third season, which is slated to launch in summer 2012. The show's second season will continue airing Monday nights at 10 p.m. (ET/PT) through Sept. 12. Rizzoli & Isles will return to wrap up its second season with new episodes in November and December."
As of this review, the season is obviously still running, so I hope this preorder price reflects the entire season, including its fall '11 wrap up. I know season one's price hasn't hit barely below $4/episode, which is entirely ridiculous. We're hoping it drops by quite a bit. As great as it is, I can't see spending over $2/episode for any TV episode, but hey! Dr Who gets it! :-)
The mysteries are fine...often predictable, but entertaining and perfectly serviceable in a show that does not take itself overly seriously. And yet, there are definitely compelling storylines and even some dark notes (Jane's nemesis creeps me out).
I like that this show cares about interpersonal dynamics and we see characters work through conflicts and we see characters grow. While the actor playing Mr. Rizzoli in Season 1 was talented and of a high pedigree (!), his cartoonish character was probably as annoying to play as it was to watch and his absence in Season 2 is a good change. Jane's mom is still a bit over the top, but we saw more depth and nuance to her this season and hopefully that will continue in Season 3 as well.
I enjoyed seeing Detective Frost come into his own this season. He may still be squeamish, but he is also smart, strong, loyal and insightful. And he gives as good as he gets and does not seem intimidated or newbie at all anymore.
There were a few guest stars who made my Veronic Mars loving heart happy to see again, so that was yet another bonus to this show.
