Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander are back on the case as Rizzoli & Isles continues for a third explosive season. As the chart-busting second season came to a close, Jane shot Maura's estranged father, crime boss Paddy Doyle (guest star John Doman), as he tried to defend Maura against an assailant - an incident which has driven a deep wedge between the two friends and colleagues. Jane and Maura will work hard to set aside their differences as they investigate a number of complex and troublesome crimes, including the murder of a female college student, a killer who has turned the transit system into his personal hunting ground and the brutal murder of two young homeless veterans. Brian Goodman joins the cast this season as a series regular, starring as Lieutenant Detective Sean Cavanaugh, whose knowledge of the hardscrabble back alleys of Boston and history as a detective make him the perfect choice to head the Homicide unit.]]>

Season Three offers much emphasis on the complicated family lives of Jane and Maura. In the very first episode, Jane and Maura must work through the issues created by Jane having shot Maura's gangster father at the end of Season Two. Jane's own father, estranged from her mother Angela (a priceless Lorraine Bracco), returns to create hate and discontent by demanding an annulment and parading a much younger girlfriend, who will get involved with another cast member, to the consternation of Jane and Maura. Maura, already hosting Jane's mother in her guest house, will have her own life complicated by the appearence of her long-lost biological mother and a sibling.
Each week, the plot centers around one or more police investigations, the resolution of which will have the team racing the clock to solve the crime and save a victim before show's end. Both Maura and Jane will be targeted by deadly opponents, creating a couple of especially suspenseful episodes. In between the dramatics, there is much good-humored razzing among the cast members. The show thrives off the interaction of Jane and Maura, who endlessly bang heads at work and then giggle like two sisters afterwards.
"Rizzoli & Isles" is good summer television, and fun to watch. Season Three is highly recommended to its fans.
This show manages to blend the dark side of life with positive counter balance. It takes me back to the kind of TV I enjoy.
This show manages to blend the dark side of life with positive counter balance.
It is great to see a show about supportive friendship/family, with its ups & downs, in a way that I can relate to from my experiences with my own friends/life.
At times the writers seem to fall back on the standard formula for police drama, but more often than not, the show keeps a realistic balance of positive and negative. Most of the story lines are well written; but I always wonder why it is necessary to always throw in a psychotic killer who keeps making appearances.
If less was shown about crazy, psychotic behavior, maybe there might be less of it in real life. Life has many, many stories that can be told without the vicious, vindictive, crazy, characters being the main focus.
With all that said, Rizzoli & Isles is positively different enough from many of today's TV shows for me to really enjoy watching. it.
