Rizzoli & Isles ~ Sesaon 1

Amazon.ca

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 Great Show Nov. 3 2011
By Philemon Paquette TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Rizzoli and Isles lives up to the hype that preceded its release. It is an interesting combination with Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander, both bright, strong, women dedicated to their work and yet having unique personalities. The puzzles are good, the acting is excellent, and in spite of the nature of the show a procedural) it is a nice balance of serious and light. A buddies show that does not disappoint.

We never heard of this series until season 3 came on our TV. We enjoyed season 3 and 4. Going back to the beginning was great. This is a good cop show. Not intense but interesting. Has more to do with the relationships between individual characters. If you like Bones, you will like this one.

This series is funny and dramatic with great acting. I have purchased the first 3 seasons and waiting for the 4th one to come out although I'm watching the 4th season on the Super Channel. What chemistry Maura and Jane have. Very entertaining! My favorite show!
