Reviews

Angie Harmon stars as Jane Rizzoli, a police detective in Boston who is pulled into a case involving a serial killer that finds ways to antagonize and harm her. A native Bostonian, Jane is tough and part of a close-knit family. Sasha Alexander stars as Maura Isles, the methodical and blunt medical examiner who is more than a little attractive. Rizzoli and Isles are bonded by their dedication to work and their strong friendship

Format:DVD
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 3 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!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good series 10 Nov 2011
By Dodster TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quirky cop show with a difference! 2 July 2013
By Tracey
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun 15 April 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent TV series. 3 Feb 2012
By Mumof2Girls TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nothing like the books 10 Sep 2011
By JRedah
Format:DVD
If you read the books and want to watch this thinking its ANYTHING like the books... your horribly mistaken. For a start the charecters physical description is complete different to that of the books.. the most obvious being Isles is supposed to have black hair, bangs and green eyes. And if the charecters physical description is off... you can only imagine how different evrything else it. even the storyline itself is very off from the books. And the main attraction to the tv series is the relationship between Isles and Rizzoli.. that doesnt exist in the books. There is a relationship between them in the books... but NOTHING like how its portrayed in the tv series.

HOWEVER if you watch the tv series and pretend you've never read the books then you'll probably enjoy it a lot more and it actually works because its soo far off the books that its not to hard to imagine that you're just watching a detective show were the only similarity is the names and their jobs.
So putting aside and pretending the books didnt exist, it's a good show to watch and funny and has its moments.

I would have given it 4 star, but because the books are my favourite books and i love them soo much i took a star off for the massive difference in the books and tv series.

I have been watching Rizzoli and Isles on tv, and never had a chance to watch the first series.

I thoroughly enjoyed re-watching this first season, catching up with my favourite characters. The only reason it didn't get 5 * is because it is so short compared to say N.C.I.S. Read more
