  • Why are people confused about the dad? Agree with the mom comments tho.

    It has always been the case that Maura's mother did not live with her biological father, as she got pregnant with Maura so young, and they were from different worlds, so why would it be such a stretch to think this Maura had a non-biological father growing up?

    I agree with those who say there's too much of Jane's mom. It is cute and fun to have the "isn't she great, gets the truth out of people, reads everyone's mind, always knows what's really going etc" for a while, but every episode is like this now.

    Also, what happened to the long running story lines? Is this because the show is always on the brink of being cancelled, so the writers never dare to write a long running story in case it never gets to reach a conclusion?

    It's a shame as this is just one of those easy to watch shows, that has female leads too, which is good as they then don't have to always push the "kick ass, woman in a man's world, not just as strong and tough as the men, but even tougher" as they always have to do in shows like NCIS with a solitary woman in the field team, which is got old around in around 2003.

    Oh, and I was delighted to see that they seem to have drop the opening scene phone call bit where they answer their phones in the correct "Rizzoli... Isles" order, just before the opening titles. It lost it's novelty after a couple of shows but dragged on for about 10???moreless
  • Great show!

    I love this show, the plots are interesting and the camaraderie between the main characters is great and fun!
  • superb dialogue! Great characters!

    Hate to see season end. The interaction between the characters is fantastic. It is a very well cast show! One of the best!!!!
  • Maura's adopted - Criminal was Biological father

    If you'd been following the show since the beginning, then you'd know that Maura was adopted and the Criminal Mob Boss was her Biological Father and the recent "dad" that showed up is her adopted father. She was adopted into a very well to do family at birth.
  • Be adult!

    Really, Maura is still resentful of her dad after 20 or so years about him cheating!!! Be an adult, you're not 14 any more!!
