Rizzoli & Isles is getting huge ratings, and with good reason as this show is really good. I was not expecting much, but both the pilot and this episode left me satisfied. On paper it looks like another show about a hard-nosed female cop, but it is so much more than that. The Isles character is pure genius, think Temperance "Bones" Brennan from Bones, only just a little bit less socially awkward, and Angie Harmon's Jane Rizzoli is also more realistic than comparable characters like Mary from In Plain Sight for example.
The show obviously targets the female demographic, but if you are a fan of procedurals then you will love this anyone. It is a strongly-written program that is not afraid to get a little graphic with the crime scenes. Definitely surprised at how much I have enjoyed this show so far.
