Tough and headstrong cop, Rizzoli (played by Angie Harmon), and brilliant medical examiner, Isles (Sasha Alexander), form a great team when it comes to solving crimes, and despite their obvious differences - Rizzoli comes from a large cop family, has 2 brothers and doesn't much care for girly things whereas Isles is the cultured, if at times socially inept, woman of the world who wouldn't be caught dead in flats - they also find themselves becoming great friends off duty.

The crime stories as such are not particularly gripping, but the chemistry between the two main characters is sizzling and there is great humour throughout the series - both in the dialogue and just watching Rizzoli's facial expressions when once again Maura Isles has made one of her more outlandish statements or provided one of her unwanted and seemingly endless facts.

Very much worth a view!

There are now quite a few series involving medical examiners and yes, this is another one. Each has an interesting and different take and this is no different.
In this one, the ME, super intelligent Maura Isles (Shasha Alexander) and tough Boston cop Jane Rizzoli (Angie Harmon) partner up to fight crime.
The story lines are good, but sometimes don't hold up to too much scrutiny. For example, in one episode Rizzoli was being hunted by psychopath from her past. Every body in the police dept. knows this, and yet she goes home without an escort...predictably she is abducted by her pursuer.
Despite these short comings, the chemistry between the two leads and the other major cast (Rizzoli's partner and former partner) makes up for any script short comings. And the show doesn't take itself too seriously either. There is a great deal of humour along with the suspense.
All in all, a very good show and worth watching if you like this genre of entertainment.

Never have a pairing of female leads been more suited since the days of Cagney & Lacey. The show has a great character dynamic, and the two leads have an on screen chemistry that cannot be beaten. It doesn't take itself too seriously and will satisfy anyone looking to be enteratined.

We hadn't seen any of this series on t.v. so hoped that it would be ok for three generations to watch at Easter. Six of us, aged from fifteen to sixty-seven, enjoyed all the episodes over four nights and thoroughly enjoyed them. The plots are nothing to write home about but the relationship between the two women is what keeps one watching.

I was also a bit skeptical about this show after reading the books 1st, I put off watching it for ages but so glad I eventually gave in. The show is just awesome. I love the chemistry between all the characters, esp Rizzoli & Isles though. They just make a great team.
There is comedy in the show to which seeps in just nicely. Rizzoli's mum is another of my fave characters. Once I started watching I couldnt stop. Season 2 so far is excellent as well. Really hope its returning for a season 3! The cliffhanger at the end of this season was epic. I was on the edge of my seat.

I don't have Satelite TV and was intrigued by the idea of a series as I like the books. However as others have noted, this doesn't bear much relation to the novels. But...To me that hasn't really mattered ("BONES" anyone?). This is a run of the mill cop show with powerful advantages over some. Yes, I mean Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander, and Bruce Mcgill and everyone, even Lorraine Bracco, who could normally overact with the best of them, but here is relatively restrained. Together the stars hold the series together and make it watchable, but without them...I honestly probably wouldn't bother. Just to be contrary, I await series 2 with almost baited breath. Maybe they will sort out the plots. The prints are good quality and there are the usual "making of" and Bloops extras. I can't give it 5 stars, but 4 is fair.
