Back in the day when Angie Harmon played a detective on Law and Order and Lorraine Bracco played a psychiatrist on The Sopranos I was able to watch them and know that they were capable of serious acting roles. Then they were cast as air heads and placed on this show that in no way resembles their resume. My sister watches this nonsense and I cannot believe what happened to these fine actresses.
This is the dumbest story line ever. "We love each other, but have decided not to marry at this pregnant and will raise this child do I tell the It's horrible, horrible, horrible. Angie Harmon is about as unbelievable as you can get. Why do good procedurals have to throw in some stupid side story that is totally unnecessary? Rizzoli's mom's line are equally hard to listen to. I'm done with this show.
Not happy with the way this show is going. Frost is gone (no ones fault) Vince retiring and Jane pregnant. It's supposed to be a crime cop show and now it's turning into a family girly bff show. Not happy.
i honestly don't know how they're going to explain frosts character but i hope they give his character justice and don't just ignore the matter. its a great shame whats happened because he was a fantastic character and i for one absolutly love Rizzoli and isles. its an amazing cast with fantastic plots and stories. one of the most memorable for me is the ones with Charles Hoyt, those were really chilling episodes fantastically written and i cant wait for a new season in 2014.
I love it. Love the chemistry between the two main cast. They bring a lot to the show. I dont want them to be couple but I do understand the fan who ship them. Sasha and Angie play beautifully in this show.
I love the characters. I love the writing. I not only love the TV show, I also love the book series and and have devoured each one like a big ball of cotton candy. I wish Gerritsen wrote faster. If you haven't guessed, I'm a voracious reader and I know there are others out there just like me. For those "in between" times, I've found some other series that I've gobbled up:
This is a great show. I have watched Motive which is a lot like this but without the chemistry these characters have. Everyone in this show is my favorite. Sooo glad there will be a 4th season. It is nice that some good shows make it. Seems like if the show is good they take it off the air for some brainless show.
Although I find some of the writing a bit silly at times, or maybe even inconsistent for some of the characters. Overall the show is fun and a good addition to the current crime shows. I especially like the dynamic between Jane and Maura, their comments and banter make for some amusing scenes.
I did really like the inclusion of a character like Hoyt and was a little disappointed to see him go, I feel like the show hasn't been quite as "serious" as it was while his character was still around to be a possible threat.
At least in Cagney and Lacey, one of them had a husband and family. Jane and Maura, however, although both over 40, act like high school kids around men, in the rare moments they aren't joined together at the hip. Enough of this sisterhood power. And I love how the unemployed Rizzoli brother has a kid out of wedlock and everyone's just peachy keen about it. Can't be judgmental, right? No one dares mention the "m" word.
And you have to congratulate the show for not having a single black perp the entire season, despite the setting in a highly urban environment.
OK 1st of all - whether anyone likes it or not, Lee Thompson Young, who plays Det. Barry Frost is a good young actor - Kudos - I give him his props! Even though Jordan Bridges is being seen more on screen - Lee is one of the main series supporting characters and up until this past season received more air time than Jordon; yet in the line-up of this site one has to click the "See All Cast" link in order to see him - the cast is not listed alphabetically - so why is he not seen immediately on the landing page - put Jordon under the Link - Please tell me it ain't so - this, I hope, is not a "color" thing - why hide the Black man? Also to the producers & directors - why is it when there are family dinners - Bruce McGill (Korsak) is invited and Lee (Frost has never been invited ! Yes he was invited to Angela's yard/garage sale to 'schlepp' boxes and to Jane's surprise B'day party with the rest of the office - but the closeness that seems to be portrayed between the Detectives & Dr. Isles - presents me with a conundrum as to, 'where is Frost?' So am I to understand that the Black man is good enough to be used for: back-up, schlepping, saying happy B'day, his computer-geek stuff, having 'one' short-lived love interest, but not as good as Bruce (Korsak) to be invited to a Rizzoli family dinner prepared by Mama Rizzoli & possibly Maura...???
How many shows do u know that allow, the actors to be themslefs, with great writing and a great cast. this show is one of the best ones I have seen.. and u dont see many female leadroles.I will never get tired of this show no matter what..
This show is everything I've been looking for. It's terribly exciting, extremely funny and just fantastic. I love Jane and Maura, as friends and hopefully, some day, girlfriends. The chemistry between all the characters is great, especially the sexual one that so obviously exists between Jane and Maura. I have to admit, there are pretty much only two reasons I watch this show. 1) I'm hoping, so so much, that Jane and Maura one day get together. 2) How hilarious the characters are together. I especially love Jane/Maura, Jane/Frankie, Frost/Frankie and Frost/Korsak. The casting is absolutely genius, and I'm extremely anxious to see where they'll take the show and characters.
The first season, Jane was more of a Tom boy, and her toughness added realism to the show. It contrasted with the hyper-feminine Dr. Isles and made the show more interesting.
Bringing her brother too quickly to the homicide unit also felt weird.
Each season of this feels like an entirely different show, and viewers have noticed. Ratings have gone down every season. In season three, the writing is predictable and seems to be modeled off of every other female lead crime show from the late 90s and early 2000s. Before, it felt fresh and more interesting.
It seems the writers/network were afraid of the lesbian fanfic and ruined the show. Maybe instead they should have listened to the ratings and stood their ground.
