  • Money Maker

    5.5
    "Money Maker" devoted far too much time to a hopefully emotional story that resulted in some hard to watch scenes, but not in a good way. The case was put on the backburner for this nonsense.



    Just beneath this series.
  • Consistently good.

    7.5
    Another fine episode of R&I, keeping up the consistently fine quality of the show.



    If I have to be "picky" about this and other TV shows, it's that I simply don't understand how/why theoretilcally brilliant people can be such scatterbrains, or basic nutjobs???



    Think Temperance Brennan in Bones, Sheldon in The Big Bang Theory and here we have Maura Isles, a brilliant pathologist but apparently with no common sense and socially clueless, except when she is getting a guy in the sack, whih she does consistently well.



    It's downright crazy (Sheldon's mother had him tested and he's isn't [crazy that is]).



    Anyway, an episode full of interpersonal relations, with another brainbox (Maura's mother), seemingly unable to process the information that her daughter hadn't died at birth.



    As for the reviewer above, assenzforzata, if you love the series and haven't read the books, DON'T.



    You'll be seriously disappointed as the characters have absolutely no relationship to the onscreen ones, other than their professions.



    Don't get me wrong, the books are superb but there are some serious differences that the writers obviously didn't translate to the TV series.



    1) Jane Rizzoli is short, curly haired, NOT very good looking (her own words) and a complete bitch.

    2) Maura Isles hardly gets a mention 'till book three and they certainly aren't BFF's

    3) Agent Dean knocks Rizzoli up in book four and she is heavily pregnant for most of it.

    4) Vince Korsak is a fat, smelly drunk

    5) Barry Frost is married.



    Etc., etc., etc.



    Heavy artistic license, methinks but don't let it put you off the books. I'm on book #5, just now.moreless
  • Getting better and better IMO

    9.5
    Well, not so much a review, as a general opinion on Rizzoli & Isles: I haven't read any of the books, but I've been a fan since the first episode, and I think, with a few up and downs during its second season, this series is getting better. To be fair, it's not so much the stories that captivate me, it is rather the sizzling chemistry between Sasha Alexander and Amgie Harmon that makes this really work. The stories aren't bad, far from it, but I think this show lives off said dynamic, probably the books too one might think. And Lorraine Bracco, my goodness, what a woman, also a funny one, at least her persona here.



    Anyhow, always looking forward to Tuesdays during the summer, because I can't wait for a new R&I episode to air. Great stuff...only wish this would be a regular 24 episode series...moreless
