Rizzoli & Isles: The Complete First Season

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

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.

Rizzoli and Isles is a good light watching show with two strong female leads.
My only disappointment is that I ordered this TV series for my daughter and upon arrival the DVD case was completely smashed leaving one of the three discs unplayable and the others loose without a case. After contacting amazon with my disappointment they have yet to respond and it has been several months. All shipping issues aside Rizzoli & Isles is recommended to people who like procedural dramas with a strong sense of family and friendship.

We have almost finished watching the first two seasons of this series and have ordered the next two, we like it so much. It is well written, with humour to take the edge off the crime aspects of the stories. Every actor suits his/her part and plays it well. The friendship between Rizzoli and Isles is totally believable, and it is refreshing to see investigations done with skill but also compassion where appropriate.

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.

I love this show. The character's , while from different backgrounds, work well together. I am partial to cop shows like this and this one is extremely well done. You see the friendships and caring.
I also have Season Two and although Season is available in the US, I can't get it in Canada yet and importing it adds considerable expense.

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!

Love the show! I have put additional seasons on my Christmas "wish list" because I have enjoyed the first half of the season so much.

I haven't watched the entire season so I can't vouch for the quality of all the dvd's, but so far so good.
