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.
This show manages to blend the dark side of life with positive counter balance. It takes me back to kind of TV I enjoy.
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.
Thank you for great entertainment. I've got my friends hooked on this program on TV. I watch it on TV as well as on my computer.

A quick read. Interesting. I think like Billing, therefore, I didn't find any "aha"s. I don't really agree with the word he used for one chapter, masculinity. Read morePublished 9 days ago by Amazon Customer
