    Rizzoli & Isles

    Okay, you guys know me. I only like TV shows and movies because I have a crush of some sort on a celebrity starring in the TV show/movie. This one is...no different, aside from the reason I decided to check it out in the first place. Haha. Angie Harmon (Baywatch Nights, Law & Order, Women's Murder Club) stars in the show as Det. Jane Rizzoli, alongside Sasha Alexander (NCIS) who plays the medical examiner. It's almost like your basic procedural cop show, EXCEPT not.

    It focuses more on the characters and their stories than the actual murders. And the characters are quirky!

    This is the first promo that I saw, and I fell in love:



    And the person who created/produces/writes the show, Janet Tamaro, said on her Twitter (@JanetTamaro, no she is not verified BUT the Sasha and Angie follow her) in response to someone who echoed my sentiments, this:

    @someheartsxx When I think of Jane+Maura+murder, I don't think of C Underwood but she rocks the house so I'll try#RizzoliandIslesTNT

    I don't care about the crime plots. Haha. Although, Hoyt and the Boston Strangler were pretty interesting. I care more about Rizzles. xD

    So because the two leads are female, there is a lesbian subtext? Sorry, I don't get it.

    You have to watch it to understand the whole lesbian subtext.

    I have never missed an episode. Perhaps you are reading into it stuff that isn't there?

    NO! That's what they keep saying to deny the fact that it's there! It's just...like...chemistry...haha...

    NO, JEFF! I want Carrie to be the killer, but with a gun...because, come on!

    Are you Angie Harmon? 'Cause she keeps sayin' this stuff, man. And everyone thinks Rizzles should be a thing, so unless we're all crazy...

    YouTube - ‪Rizzoli and Isles gag reel‬‏

    Even Angie and Sasha are completely aware...also, they're super mean. Haha.

    No... It's the touching, and the way they look at each other, etc lol

    I don't get how someone can not see the subtext xD

    I must say I learned somethng here. The next time I see two women hugging at the mall I'll get the lesbian subtext. The next time I see two women sharing a table & a cup of coffee at Starbucks I'll just understand it's a lesbian thing. The next time I see one woman straighten the collar of anothers' jacket or something I'll just...well as I said I have learned something here today.

    Not what I meant.. at all... People just interpret relationships on TV differently, and a lot of people who watch R&I (including me) think Maura & Jane might be more than just best friends...

    Or that they should be more than just friends.

    Also, I know we don't normally say a Taylor song is perfect, but this one totally describes Rizzles to me:



    Also, the season 2 premiere is this coming Monday (2 days!) at 10 PM EDT on TNT, so you can watch it yourself for the subtext, or not subtext, whichever. Still a cool show. Plus, Jane might have died! (spoilers)

    Orphaned at a young age and raised in poverty, Rizzoli rose to prosperity. He apprenticed in the printer trade and later became an entrepreneur in his twenties.
